Pirelli Supercorsa pros 190/55

Anyone tried these on a 996/8??

Thinking of trying out a pair of the street compound tyres - but would like to know how the impact is of the higher tyre on the handling - that's about 9.5m higher which sounds like a lot to me!

Thanks

9.5m

That some sort of monster truck not a Ducati

I take it you mean 9.5mm is that overall height of the tyre or 9.5mm taller profile. I'd guess the former?? If its the latter you might well have some clearance problems if you ahve a hugger.

A taller profile generally speeds the steering up

A 190/55 is a the best sized tyre on a 6 inch rim.

Anything narrower and you will be better suited to a 180/55.

The 190/55 on a 6 inch rim will give you a similar turn in rate to those who fit a 180/55 to a 5 or 5.5 inch rim.

I'm on the lookout myself for a rear in a 190/55 to go on my 6inch mag...the new pirelli diablo coras III's look like they may well come in that size and be just the ticket.

Tried 180 and 190, personally prefer 190 feels more stable at high speed and do not miss the turn in of the 180 just push a little harder.

Plus my mate says 180 looks s***e from behind ....lolol

the 190/55 is a fantastic tyre.

I have been using a rensport. and I love them.

Must agree, I run a 190/55 renny on the rear. But my rear rim is 5.75 wide so I may not be getting the full benefit?

Talking

Thanks for all the advice

I've got a 998s with std wheels so probably 5.5 but I still fancy a 190/55 - agree with dave on the stability & looks bit......!

& Ray - yes I meant 9.5mm

Played safe in the end and went for a 190/50 diablo corsa 111

At brands on the 15 August so we'll see!
