What you got on the back? I'd tend to stick to a matching pair if I can

I am about to put Angel GTs on front and back after getting through 1 front PR3 and 2 back PR3

I've got a pr3 on the back but I've only done about 2500 and it seems to be squaring off already. My brother has the Maxxis and they've got a very steep camber on them which I like

Michelin Power Cup VA. Lovely steep profile.

Failing that, I'd still go for the PR3. The SMT destroys rear tyres when used in anger but the fronts last for ages unless you ride like a commuter (tm some twat or other).

If you want cheap, I've got a set of Maxxis Supermaxx in the garage, 120/70 and 190/50, part worn from track use so nice and pointy, but only done about 100 road miles so plenty of meat on them. Easy to post. They're just not quite up to the thou's power delivery and the fuckers simply refuse to die. Also got a PR3 front with about 2mm of tread left.

Hmm thanks for the offer but I always like to start fresh I really don't know what to do lol as I can get the Maxxis tomorrow and since I got back from my trip last week it's like the feel out of the conti is gone completely but it hasn't hit the wear mark yet

Was even thinking of the pilot power 3 as apparently there the same price as the road 3
