Default Tyre recommendations

Hi i've recently brought my SV and the rear tyre is pretty squared off. It's currently got Dunlop Sportmax tyres on it which, judging from the mileage are probably the originals. What tyres do you guys and girls use and what would you recommend?

Cheers,
Chris

Take a look in the tyres forum in the Reviews section, loads of info on tyres in there.

Loads of opinions in the tyre section:-

Metzeler Z6 Roadtecs are generally the favoured weapon of choice

Depends on what type of riding you do! I'm running Dunlop Quallifiers ATM But they would be a bit of a waste if all you do is commute!

Loads of grip and feed back! Also awsome in the wet!

Talking Re: Tyre recommendations

I thought i'd go with the trend and got myself a set of Metzeler roadtec Z6's. I'll see how i get on with them as i'm still getting comfortable with the bike and then next time i'll try experimenting.

Thanks people!

Try Bridgestone BT021's....Very good in the dry or the wet....Was quite impressed with them in wet weather....gave me more confidence.
You wont be dissapointed....
