Tire Deals

Recommended Posts

Is that on the ZX10? Yeah, mine runs through rear tires quickly as well. At least the last few S21s went quickly. Maybe I should go back to the Q3s but I think hey were going quickly as well. Probably related to the HP how hard we twist the throttle.

Yes, on the ZX10. The GSXR was bad but not this bad. I usually squeezed out 2500-2800 miles from the Pirellis... on some trips I did only get 1500-2000 miles but I don't think I pushed this one as much (still scares me :) ) You're probably right about the HP. May be touring tires next time. LOL.

EDIT: The upside of the current tires is that the handling really did not change with degradation like the Pirellis. I do need to go through what I have then may be go back to what is on it now.

Not really a tire deal but, I just ordered a set of Pirelli Angel GT for the GSX-S.  They are going to cost $289.97 from Jake Wilson shipped to the door. 

Going to be my first set of Pirelli's since 2009 ish.

I've got those on the Monster and really like them.

This is a little off topic, but it is tire related. They just announced that a new Q3+ will be available in May. Claims to last longer than the current tire on both street and track.

Should've waited a week, they're now offering a $40 rebate on Pirelli Angel GT's (among other models).

I've had the Angel GT on the rear for a month or so now and ordering the front today.

Crash says I have another 200 miles on this tire, but I want a second opinion...

 

Gonna go ahead and replace.

I've rode home from Hermann before side saddle trying to keep the bike off the cords as much as possible. :)

Was that the time you used a sharpie to fill in the cords? 

If you can't see them, they're not exposed :)

I posted in shout but metzeler has a $40 rebate going. 

 

I went with the Sportec M7RR for Speedy. $200 a set after the rebate, supposedly better life and behavior than Q3's. Figured they're worth a shot.

The racetec k3 is supposed to be very similar to a super corsa. 


The new roadtec 01 are supposedly comparable to the Pilot Road 4's. It's been said they have a bit more dry and wet grip, slightly worse wet braking. 

There's also a racetec RR, which may or may not also be like a super corsa. I believe it's replacing the K3. 

 

Those are all eligible.

Just ordered 2 more sets of S21s from Jake Wilson based on y'alls recommendations. That was my first order through them. They were cheaper than the other two places I usually go to.

Do you like the S21's, how many miles do you get out of a set (or just a rear)?

I do like the S21. I have no idea how many miles I get out of them. About as many as I get out of any other tire..... which is not many.

And I just ran into my first possible issue with Jake Wilson. :) I ordered and payed for 2 fronts and 2 rears and I just got an email that they shipped 2 fronts and 1 rear.

And as soon as I type that I get another email with an updated shipping notice with the complete order. :)

Well i have ordered the S21's for my fj 09.i have only 2000 miles on the rear and it's time for a new one.I wanted to order my tires  and a helmet through JW. But they don't have the helmet i want (size and color). End up ordering through Revzilla. At first their price for a set of tires were $60.00 higher. Called them back and they do price match. 

I rather get my parts through smaller vendors to keep the retail prices fair.

Just saw cyclegear is running an in-store special for Bridgestone S21's. Front and rear for $229 before mail-in rebate($50 on a visa gift card, total: $179). Need new rubber on my Suzuki, so I may jump on it this week. I was planning on going with Q3's but the price on these Bridgestones is making me rethink it
