K...I have a problem with this statement..how on earth can you say the 207's...or any tire for that matter is THE best...and who cares about being cheap, when they are the ONLY things between you and the asphault..??????
Lets get real here, riding bikes is expensive..and yeah tires cost, get the cheapest ya can find..the ones that are out of round, have been sitting in a warehouse for a yr....ect..
Yur riding habits/style will/shoud dictate what tire works best for you...comuter..harder compound/less grip..canyon carver..more GRIP..rear is usually shot in 2k mi or so..they will also turn/grip and take bumps in different ways..example...I know a real fast rider that loves BT56ss..ask most riders that do canyons/track days..and they will puke at the mention of BT56ss..some swear by 207's or 208's and that's fine..recently, the Rennsports have been getting great reviews form club racers to canyon carvers, over in the land of OZ..Pilot's are concidered the tires of choice..So unless yur statement was in jest..I suggest you research a tad before making statments like the above one..
Just FYI..I've had 207's, I currently have Pilot's ..my next set will be Suppercorsa's..same as the Rennsports, different tread pattern..didn't care for the 207's, the Pilots are O.K...I rode a bike with the Supercorsa's and can say they are an excellent tire, as are most tire for their intended use....
