Rear Tire Choice?

Recommended Posts

What rear tire do you guys recommend for my WR SM? I have a 4.25" X 17" rear rim...

I want this tire for street / racetrack use...No dirt. Rear only...I am using my Supercorsa take-offs from my R6...

I currently have a worn out Metzler M1...Has been good...Time for a new one...Anyone have a used one for sale in good shape?

Thanks!

IMHO you're better off choosing an H rather than Z rated tyre on your motard.

Most notably because the tyre carcass and compounds on an H rated tyre are more suited to the weight, average speeds and power output that your WR has. A Z rated tyre off your R6 is quite unlikely to be stressed enough to get to proper operating temperature anyway.

Most major tyre manufactures seem to do a choice of good H rated tyres. In my experieces Dunlop's GPR70 is a very populer road and performance tyre. Have you thought about the Maxxis road legal offerings, they're by all accounts pretty good too.
