Found the pics, and you are correct Sir! You need new rubber BAD. My tires handled like crap and had way less wear. I put on the Mich R5s (same size as stock) and the handling was so nimble it freaked me out.

Go for it.

I just looked up your pics and I can see you like getting your money's worth
That rear should have been changed ages ago

Michelin M5s will give you more mileage and good grip but the rosso's will give you more confidence when you're pushing it. Two good tyres if you ask me. I also liked the Metzler M7's.

Pull my finger

Jeff how many miles are you getting out of the rear Rosso 3s?

I've had the bike 11 months and this will be the 4th rear tire and I am running -1 +2......1-Pilot R4 (came with the bike, not much left when I got it...good tire, plenty of grip... no complaints)......2-Connti road attack 3 2000 miles (lots of wheels spin on low gear power digs...hated this tire)....3- Bridgestone S21 4000 miles (good tire, plenty of grip...no complaints just wanting a little more miles)

From what I've read it looks like 4k on the rear is about the most you're going to get if you ride her like she should be rode.

Hey Razor I've only just got a new set of Rosso 3s so I can't comment on longevity yet but I usually scrub out the front tyre on the edges before the rear. Its really weird doesn't matter what tyre or bike.

For handling/fun:
Dunlop Q3+ > Pirelli Rosso 3


I tried both on the gsxs1000.
