Dunlop Tires for 919

So I just got a gift cert for a set of Dunlop tires (and I have to use it before the end of the year.)

Ironically I just bought my third set of Dunlop 616's (which I like a lot and plan to keep using.)

But I guess the question is, do I get a fourth set of 616's or should I try out those Roadsmart's?

Anyone get amazing milage out of the Roadsmart?

I like the 616 bc they look badass, get relatively good milage and handle great and the best part, they're $199/setat Iron Pony!

Obsession is a word the lazy use to define the dedicated.

Love the roadsmarts. Only have about 500 miles on them, but they perform great and look great. Having tried the 616's. I'll post something when my miles get a little higher...

Hmm Giftcard. Try the road smarts - treat them as free tyres, if you decide they are rubbish replace them and sell them.

I have read that they are squirrely above 75mph. Have you noticed this? I love the looks of them and they are definitely cheaper than the Roadsmarts.

Squirrely where? My freeway commutes are generally 80-90mph and I have no problems of any sort. In the twisties they handle great, but I don't ride WFO in the twisties?

I've only noticed one time where I felt the front skip out a hair in a crazy tight turn, but I was big time pushing it (for me at least.)

I'd recommend the 616's to anybody, but I'm no kneedragger so yeah..
