What is the difference between Dunlop D207 sportmax, ZR, etc. Are they all the same tire. Different places call them different things. If they are different which ones do I want. Thanks

The Dunlop D204s were called Sportmax IIs. The D207 replaced the 204 with the ZR being the street compound and the GP being the race compound. I just put a set of 207ZRs on my RR and they're awesome!

Here's what I think. There are three types of D207s available: (1) D207ZR Sportmax, (2) D207 GP Stars, and (3) D207RR (race radial). I still see D204s for sale everywhere, so I didn't think they had been replaced my the D207.

I would have to say that the D207ZR and D207 Sportmax are one in the same. Someone please correct me if I am wrong. My new D207ZRs say Sportmax as big as day on them.

has n e body tried the new rr's? i havent even seen them but am very curious.

why, if they have the same name d207, are they different profile.. the gp & stars are taller (for better cornering) & the zr are rounder (better milage, stability, etc..)? i think they should be 207 & 307 or sumthin. i would like a street compound tire in a taller profile.. i really dont like the 207's.. i dont have much confidence on them (maybe cause i wrecked em).

i haven't seen the rr's either, i'm surprised the stars haven't been out long.

anyway, i think they name them all 207 because joey f4/r6/gsxr/6r sees hayden, hayden, yates, bostrom win on their bike with 'dunlop's extrordinary d207's' and they want the same tire the pro just won on. even if they're totally different.

it's why chevy, pontiac and ford race in nascar even though those cars have nothing in common with the ones on the street.

Just thought I would add to the responses.
<UL TYPE=SQUARE>
<LI>D207 = model
<LI>Sportmax = just a name for the tire
<LI>Z = 150+ MPH Speed rating
<LI>R = Radial tire
</UL>

I finally found the best deal for my F4. I am getting a set of D207's from Motorcycle Access. Wharehouse for $183.95. Front-$80.95 Rear-$102.95 Seems to be the best deal if anyone else is looking for a good deal. Thanks for all the input.
