    Default tire comparison or recommendations

    Guys. I'm in need of tires and advice.

    what is a good tired for the Durability and grip?

    I use my r1 mainly on the streets and hit the twisties every now and then.

    I'm thinking of the following tires
    Bt016
    Pilot power 2ct
    Q3

    Any suggestions?
    Why would you suggest that tire?

    Out of those three, I'd say Q3.

    If you're mostly street and occasional twisties, you should really consider sport-touring tires. I used to run B-stone BT-023s on my Ducati all the time. I switched to S20 sport tires for one reason: I still had tons of center tread left when the edges were shagged. I figured if I was going to throw a tire out anyway, it might as well be completely used up. The sport-touring tires have enough grip for (very) aggressive street riding and high B to low A track pace. If your tires are square when you replace them now, you might find ST tires a pleasant surprise.
    I guess Dunlops version is called the RoadSmart.
