I would go with the Q3's they're pretty impressive for the price you can get them for. $200 after the rebate for a set.

What pace are you running? The Q3s are perfect for all but the advanced group

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

I agree with SkyDork, knowing your pace is something you should really factor in when choosing tires

It depends on where you are in your pace. I ran PP3 when I started. Then went with Pirelli Supercorsa DOT race tires and I absolutely loved the feel, grip, feedback... etc. I started running A group and a mod here who i respect told me why waste precious rubber so I ran Superbike Slicks 200/60 and I am a believer.. Never looking back. Expensive.. yes. But wtf is a $380 compared to thousands in repairs from a nasty get off.

Bare in mind that you definitely don't want to be running slicks (superbike slicks) if your pace isn't fast enough to keep them warm. BUT you can run the superbike PRO slicks which don't require warmers, last forever, and still be better option than just street tires.

I like Michelin Power Cup, Power Slick, and Power Rain. Will be running Pirelli Superbike and Supercorsa SC1/SC2s this weekend. I also like the Dunlop KR448/449 slicks. That's for A group and racing.
