michelin kinda just punked out, they need to apply how can they keep making better tires if there aren't racing anywhere
yeah but dunlop is running AMA big time and Pirelli is running world super bike and a few other racing series, but michelin isnt being run anywhere in mass numbers anymoreDunlop is not in MotoGP and they have IMO the best DOT race tire available here in the US. You dont need MotoGp to develop a great tire, just great racers. Pirelli is not in MotoGp either and they have awesome tires as well.:thumbsup:

Michelin hands out tires left and right...That is why most places stock them. More margin...Ever wonder why no one stocks Pirellies even though they are very good tires.
Michelin will never go on my bike unless someone hands them to me. Bridgestones 16s are my next tire and then I will be content with my tests. I have had after market Qualies and they were not bad...
:thumbsup: +1. Who wants to ride a tire based on GP tires but are not actually GP tires. The Pirellies you ride is what they ride in WSBK. Michelin = Overrated.
I remember when Corsa IIIs were out a few months and a buddy bought a set of PPs...I almost shit and said wow what BS hype. Back then keep in mind 2.5 years ago, PPs were same price as Corsa IIIs.
Soo your going to go out and buy a set of Pirelli's thinking your getting a World Superbike spec tire??? :lol:
Your foolish to think ANY of the DOTs us regular riders buy are anything close to the tires given to the WSBK or GP guys. The twin compound aka (2CT) tires that Michelin has today and that were copied by the other tire brands of recent years are a direct result of MotoGP development.
Now go out and buy yourself a set of the fancy Pirelli WSBK tires and enjoy the ride. ccasion1
A shop told me...Yes. Margin on Michelin. No can discount Pirelli that much. Shop around.I own a bike accessories shop in AZ . I was wondering where you get your data to back up your theroy on Michelin tire MARGIN's or Michelins willingness to give away tires.?? On any given day I can buy Pirelli DOT and Dunlop DOTs for much less than the Michelin tires and make a better MARGIN ..
Give up the data.

PM me your prices on Corsa IIIs, Rossos, and BT16s and if it is cheaper than I can get I WILL BUY from you. Free shipping though.:thumbsup: No lie bro...I will buy from you.
