Probably an old news by now, but looks like the new M3 Sportec will be replacing M-1. The price is about the same as you would pay for a Pilot powers and probably get the same usage out of them. If anyone is interested in it, looks like Ronayers has pretty good prices on them.

The last few rear tyres I bought were Bridgestone 020's, really because they are dual compond and I get good life out of them (about 10 500 miles). The pilot sport my SS came with got about 6200 miles. Can anyone tell me whether the Pilot Roads are similar to the 020's and whether Metzler make a comparable tyre. The shops I talk to just want to sell me what 'they' want, I know Metzler dumped a heap of tyres on the market here a few years ago. I was looking at going back the mitchies because of tyre 'profiles' The mitchies used to have smaller chicken strips IMO.

Thanks

I'd have to use up the new set of M1's on my bike as well as the new front 1 and 2 new rears I have hanging in my garage that I got a super shmokin deal on!

I think to answer that question, BT-020 the more high milage as opposed to Pilot Sports, is a good comparasion to Pilot Roads. As for Metzeler, I would say Z-6 Roadtec.

Keith, thanks for the answer. My apologies for the delay, I lost the thread.

I use the SportTec M1 front and Z6 rear on my Speed Triple. I like them much better than the Bridgestone dual compounds. The profile makes for easier turn in, and I get better milage from them. While I'm not pushing them hard, I think the feedback is better as well.
