Looking for new tires, any recommendations

Recommended Posts

Looking for new set of tires for my 2000 XX any recommendations would help.

Currently looking at Dunlap sport max Q3.

If you are looking for a sport/touring tire, I really like my Dunlop Road Smart III.  They seem to be wearing well with no cupping but I don't have miles on them yet to tell if they will be long lived.

I'm loving the Pirelli angel GT's . wear is outstanding. If you take the bird to the track, or are a canyon carver that doesn't care about the short life, the Dunlop sport Q series stick like glue....they give it up quick if you push it hard.

Even if you're doing track days, I recommend a Q3 front with a Roadsmart rear.  Plenty of grip for 99% of your riding, plus wet weather capability and decent mileage.  If you're looking for maximum mileage, I'm not the guy to ask. 😁

The Q3 is no more, very old and outdated now.
The Q3 Plus and the Q4 have replaced it.

Be sure to check for rebates.  There are some going on until the end of the month.

+ another on the angel gt's, i'd recommend the a-spec unless you're scuffin' your knee sliders.

Road 4's aren't available but were great tires...
Currently on Road 5's...equally great but Michelins are pricey!
Wore out my Angel GT's in 6000 miles and they rode like shit...very stiff sidewall.

I did get ridiculous mileage from rear road 4 gt on my VFR12. Like 10k plus, record for me.
