Anybody else out there running 16.5" wheels and tires on their track bikes? I have been running Dunlops in the past and I am thinking about trying out some pirelli's. Just wondering if anyone has any opinions on the pirelli's vs. the dunlops.

I have a set of marchensini's on their way and will be trying both the pirellis and the dunlops. I think the Dunlops are the tyre with the best out and out performance but my spidey sense tells me the pirelli will be easier to jump on and ride fast without having to turn the setup inside out.

time will tell :)

I do like the Dunlops but it is hard for me to find good supply and the prices are quite high. I am only considering a switch because I can get the Pirelli's for about $100 less a set.

By the way were you on the redmonkey forum? I think I recognize your bike. I used to race a 7 also just sold it last year.

Well I had a 10 on the street for the last 4 years but this was the first year racing one. It definitley takes some set up time to get it right. I was mid pack most of the year with a best finish of 5th in one superbike race. I had limited track time this year being in the middle of a move and change in jobs but I am really looking forward to next year.
