Just Visiting Your Planet
It's not, necessarily, outriding a tire. But there are differences that you can feel. And I will be the first to admit that I'm not the fastest guy out there. Far from it. Even so, I can feel the differences.I don't understand the OP's rant. Certainly there are differences between brands and designs, but modern tires are so good that there aren't many who can outride their tires on the street.
I remember the first time I put a Michelin on the ST after some Dunlops. Holy shit. Much softer sidewalls and more flex than I was used to. I got used to it and actually enjoyed the feel I got from them after I got to know the tire. These are the things tire shootouts can tell you.
