Not affiliated with M&P but they're a good setup and they've been around for donkeys....cheers

I'd rather spend a bit more and put my trust in proven tyres from known tyre manufacturers rather than save a few quid on Czech no name tyres.

I've used M&P before and always found them to be fine, so I wouldn't hesitate in using them again.... Shame they don't have PR4's on offer though, I'd probably have gone for a pair myself

Yes sure. I just put them out there fishing for information really.
However Mitas are a well know brand but more in the way of "off road" tyres.
I could only find one review, and that was incomplete, just the first page of a pdf file where they had been run on track on a Ducati.
I am always up for something new and will consider them for future.

Dekker,
I've a friend who has just written a review. He has his own bike shop down south and is also an Ex racer.
Most of the useful info is on page one and page 2. Popkat is the author and thread starter. Having ridden with him I pretty much respect his opinion as opposed to just a random review on the net.

I would think that by know you have the tyres fitted and have a few miles on them.

How about some feed back.

I'm a big fan of Conti's (sport attack 2) but have never used the sport attack but for that money they could be a good punt.

I have some concerns about buying discounted tyres as they can be old stock and in this instance possibly up to four years.(check production date on sidewall)

If not stored correctly and at the right temperature tyres can deteriorate and l would rather not take the chance to save a few quid or less i knew how they were stored and how old they were.

Nowt wrong with these bud...stick like **** to be fair in the dry...dunno about the wet as ain't tried. Only done about 300 miles but after fitting i went for a wee blast to gently scrub them in and ended up taking them just about to the edges...no slips or slides....well recommended. I don't get hung up on the latest and greatest tyres...most these days are good for us mere mortals, so i look for deals. Normally buy sport touring tyres as awesome on normal roads with decent life to boot.
Oh and I doubt M&P wouldn't sell out of date or old tyres....these are stamped as 12/15...you can just see the date on the photo.

I agree they just don't make bad tyres anymore,just some are a little better and more expensive than others.

Glad you are pleased with them and saved a few quid.

I'm sure if you try a little harder that 2mm of unused rubber will scrub in LOL
