my rear is almost bald and i'm about to be crippled if i don't throw a new one on there very soon.

i'm having a tough time trying to decide which tires to get. i've pretty much decided to go with a pair of road tires rather than race tires such as the pilot powers due to the fact that more than 80% of my riding time is done on city streets with little to no turns. i need something that has a hard center with soft sides. i know there are several tires out there but i am having a difficult time choosing the correct set of tires for my bike.

conti-force road attacks
metzler roadtec z6
michelin pilot road
pirelli diablo corsa 3

any others i might have forgotten?

looking for opinions from people who have actually used any of these tires on their speedys.

thank ya much.

I use mine for commuting a lot, not much in the way of corners...so I'll be switching as well.

My plan is to go with a (Limey suggested) Conti Road attack rear w/Sport attack front. This way I'll maintain confidence in the front and get some decent wear from the rear. I hope this will get me a one-for-one wear cycle between the front and rear too.

The Conti's look good as well.

Metzler M3's or the Conti Road attack.
I have the Metzler M3's only about 1000 on em so far but there heads and shoulders above the stock bridgestones..
We get Pirelli powers over here as stock,well i did anyway.I run the power on the front and the road on the back,brilliant combo. :popcorn:

That was going to be my reccomendation. I have the pilot roads and they have a very flat profile, so when you do get in the twistys, they don't turn in as easy and have a smaller contactpatch while leaned over. These guys are the local MSF instructors and do a lot of riding. They do reviews on a lot of the stuff they use and did one on the Conti Roads. http://www.canyonchasers.net/reviews/accessories/road-attack.php
