Metzeler k1/k2 or Pirelli sc1/sc2 slicks Whats the difference?

Someone enlighten me please.

Are they not both made by the same company? Ergo the same tyre

i've honestly no idea regarding slicks, but having used both these tyres in treaded from there's a subtle difference in the way they feel. The Metzlers seem marginally more pliable and forgiving on rough surfaces and when they let go there's a little bit more shimmy & warning. The Pirellis feel slightly harsher & seem better suited to smoother surfaces.
Both are tragically vile in the cold & wet though! These days i use Dunlop D211's which seem to grip damn well regardless of road surface and can cope with adverse weather conditions better.

But that's all about treaded tyres - no idea about slicks -terribly sorry!
