What tire do you like in the "real" size (190/55)?

So, I traded in my Dunlop Suckifier for the 190/50 Michelin PP (not the 2CT because the right size was not available) and have been pretty happy. It is now time to get a new set of tires.

What is the consensus (or is there one) regarding the new PP 2CTs, Diablo Corsa III, and any other good street tire?

Post up your experiences and preferences! :)

2ct only because reg pp don't come in 55s... only tire I trust on dry or wet road.

I really like the Conti Attacks...for the money it my favorite. I went from the Dunlop Q's to the Attack's and man I really love the way they handle in the street. The only thing I don't like is the narrow look they have on the bike. Great street tire though!

I really don't have a problem with my Qs. Just purchased my second rear tire.
I will admit, however, that when I went to the track, I put on PP 2CTs and they were great.

Bikes: '88 EX250 (sold), '86 Nighthawk S (sold), '03 ZX7R (R.I.P.s), '07 ZX10R (sold)

I don't like repeat offenders; I like dead offenders.
My idea of 'gun control' is putting as many bullets as I can into the same hole.

- Ted Nugent
Iím all for gun control, I just define it a little differently. If you can put 2 rounds into the same hole from 25 meters, thatís gun control!

I've done 1 track day and about 500klm's on the street with a 190/50 Conti Race Attack.
No complaints, but not much use for a qualatitive judgement with so little use.

I'm getting it swapped back to a 190/55 tomorrow.

Supercorsa III's. Couldn't be happier with the dual compound tire for the price. Price is the same as pilot power's here in Germany, and I'm impressed. As long as you don't run the tire pressures too high you can't beat them. I've got a set on my bike now and run mostly back roads, but the center section of the tread is doing great. Kneedragger_13(member here) took my bike on a 5 country ride and put on a few thousand miles in a weekend and there is still more than 50% tread left and I know they were riding pretty hard.

I've got a set on at the moment and I must say, I'm very impressed so far. Trackday next week too!
