Hi Gang,

I have been having some issues with my tyre choices, and just thought I would find out what everyone's preferences were?

I am currently into Pirelli's. I use the Dragon Corsas on the street and the SuperCorsa for the track.

I went from a 180/55 on my rear to a 190/50. I have been having issues with the front end sliding and I currently attribute this to a 5 millimeter loss in height on the rear and a wider aspect tyre (190).

I am considering a 190/55 as my next tyre and just wondered what experiences or choices you guys have.

Here are the questions:

Which Tyre make do you prefer? Pirelli? Metzeler? Michellin? Dunlop

What aspects do you prefer? 180/55 or 190/55 or 190/50? And why and what environment - track or street?

OK! - It's official, I am an idiot! :stupid:

There was already another poll on tyres, that even I RESPONDED to as well - go figure.

Oh Well.....

How about we just relate this one to profiles...

I hear that Michelin Pilot Powers very good tire. Good wear and grib. Probably going to be my next tire.
