Tire Help

I'm ready for some new tires. I have 5000 miles on my 919 and the center of the tire is worn pretty bad. I'm looking for a good sport touring tire that I will get some decent milage out of. Can any one help me out with some suggestions?

Metzler Roadtec Z6. Nice sport touring tire you can get some really good mileage out of.

+2 on the Pilot Roads.

Never run them myself but I have a friend that should do R & D for a tire company with the way he burns thru them on his R6. He got the most life and positive performance out of the Pilot Roads.

+1 on the Z6's. Great tire and a good compromise between stick and durability.
