Hey everyone...
What tires (brand and type) would you guys recommend for a 02 GSX-R 750. I don't do any intense track racing yet, but do need the tires to grip pretty well. Any suggestions??

Thanks!

I've used Road Attacks, Pilot Powers, and Diablos. The latter two on the track worked really well for grip, though I'm finding the Powers are pilling worse than the Diablos; not sure whether that's because I've gotten better or the tires don't fit my use as well.

The Road Attacks are my street tire but I'm not doing canyons or anything requiring much grippiness and am instead keenly interested in mileage.

Every tire is a balance of grippiness versus wear. If I didn't care about cost I'd go back to Diablos around the clock.

I am loyal to Michelin Pilot Power 2CT's, but I ride pretty aggressively in the corners. I've heard the Diablo Stradas are a good all-around tire with excellent life, and pretty good grip.
