Re: [vmaxtech] radial tires poll Rudy Mercer Sat Apr 07 13:00:45 2012

I have used the Metzler, Shinko and the Pirelli. The Metzler lasted the longest 
but traction was limited unless good and warm. The Shinko had awesome traction 
but tire life was extremely short, I got about 2000kms on it. The Pirelli 
offered decent traction when cold, great when warmed up and tire life decent. 
That was my experince with them, keep in mind riding style and conditions play 
a big role in both tire life and traction.
