I'm sure this has probably been covered or addressed but forgive me i haven't been on the site in a very long time. Looking for feed back on Pilot Power RS tires. Aggressive street riding wet and dry. I'm having difficulty getting any kind of a useful response from anyone on this. Used to PP2 and love them. I don't ride as many miles anymore so i thought that i would go with something a little stickier since i'm not as worried about mileage at this point. Thoughts/complaints? Thanks.

They are good tires. I have ridden them on the street and on the track at speed ( A group jam session). You can cook them if you push them long and hard but the tires are very good. I would say the Q3+ Dunlop is better but I would not hesitate to run the Michelin. If you are a big guy and get hard on the gas a lot, the rear tire can get a strange wear area toward the outside edge of the tire. Kind of a dip almost like it has two compounds, between the middle and the tires edge. I think it is due to tire flex but not sure.

nope, done many powers and loved them UNTIL French went to fabric instead of steel. Fabric is geared toward track tech pros with a huge budget. Street people (sport) run down the tire BUT once that fabric is reached: it beats the hugger up.

I never look at Mich, ever, until they return to steel belt. Also, note that pros tend to HATE Mich. About psi or whatever.
Do your own search.

Mich has problems; always a history of problems ranging from too hard to stupid fabric to whatever psi mental games; I suspect they attract engineers that don't ride or simply hire riders that ride a track loop a few times.
