Tyre balder than i thought

I currently have Dunlop Sportmax D207's on my 600ss.

The rear is fine, however, I need to get a new front tyre this week mine is really not very healthy.

Would it be sensible to just get another front the same as im taking off? or should i shoot for something else?

If so, what should i get?

Current tyre dimensions are 120/60 17

Cheers
Cy

I would get the same type of front tyre, that way it will match the rear one and you won't have any problems with different compounds, different profiles or different degrees of grip at either end of the bike.

If you must get something different, I would always go for a grippier tyre on the front than at the rear. Cos if you lose the back end chances are that you'll just have a little slide from the back end, if you lose the front you're probably going down the road on yo ass within the next second or two.
