First tyre change ...

This sound pathetic but at 4000 miles and 3 years , i finally need to change the tyres on my 998s.

Adding Cycle Cat Bar raisers have made me vow to ride it more often ...

Reading thru the posts here Diablos seem to be the first choice. Obviously I don't think I need super corsas, but what advantage to Corsas have over std Diablos?

The rear will be changes for a 180 rather than a 190.

What about Metz Spotec M1s ?

I am not to sure how much I like the Michelins ( I never have felt happy with the front end ... suspension fettling has made a big difference ... I just wonder what part the tyres play ...) so I wount be going with Sports again ...

What else is out there ... Avon Vipers seem to get good reviews, but I have seen anything directly Ducati orienated ...

Thanks

Only used standard Diablo's, the corsa's have thinner grooves & does not contain silica, so not as good as standard diablo's in the wet,but are better for ultra fast road & track days.
