right i know this has been asked sooooooooooooo many times but each person has a different need

i need new rear tyre ...

its a metzler mez4 been on bike since middle sept and its down to its limit ( well the edges are still ok but centre /inner edges are low) its done me 8k so im not that bothered ......

question is due to my need for a good hardwearing tyre for the distances i do but i still want a tyre that i can feel confident with as i have with the metz .....

had conti avenue on the old gpz which were hard weraing as i got 15k out of the rear but the grip was shocking so not going down that route...

so in reality i need a dual compound that offers the best of both and at a decent price ... ideas please

I had Pirelli Diablo's on my 916 and they were a great all round tyre. I'll definitely look at them to replace the Dragon Corse's I've got now which really don't do winter! :shock:

I've heard the Dunlop 2CT (i think thats what its called!) is also a great all rounder. But I've never used it myself.

Hope this helps! :cheers:

with regards to the same front and rear i agree and the front is still good ....only problem is that metzeler stoppeddoing the mez4 :( so i either have to source one from ebay etc and gthen go to local tyre and try getting it fitted .

Or i get a new set front and rear..and yes i am thinking along the lines of bt021 from what i read in other posts ... just that flaming thing of £80 for one tyre if i can find one or £150+ for two new ones ..... ......... grrrrrrrrrrr
