Rear tire suggestions. Help!!

Ok so when I bought my bike it had a Shinko Ultra Soft tire on it. And now with 2500 miles on it she is pretty well bald. I spin the hell out of it all the time usually all the way through first and part of second. I'm not necessarily looking for a tire that is not going to spin because I would rather not have the front end come up. But more a tire that is going to last longer and still offer good grip. Now my bike is stretched 8"a and lowered 2"s so tire spin is going to be an issue no matter what. But any insight you guys can give me is going to help this sport bike noob. Thanks

the shinko is gonna offer the best grip. its a sticky tire made for hooking. anything that will last longer means its a harder compound rubber and will actually spin even more. Im at 10-11in over and have a 2ct which is a good tire, but if i wanna shit and get, its not really the best choice bec the center is harder. Itll last abt twice as long as a shinko under reg riding, but wen i do pin it, 1st-3rd are useless

I would say use the same tire than you have in the front.

"The ZX-10R is capable of being perfectly docile and tractable, but few men are capable of resisting its ever-present voice urging them to just twist it and see what happens."

this. unless you wanna get the Hookup or Power One. Then you might not. lol. Suspension work and throttle/clutch modulation if you dont want to spin. I like the Pilot Power I have on mine right now. Not so much for drag racing though, gonna get me a U-Soft as my next tire in a week or so.
