Tire Choices

greenspun.com : LUSENET : MV Agusta F4 : One Thread

I have to put new tires on my MV over the winter, and am curious what others have used. I have heard very good things about Avon Azaros, so may give those a try. Also, those of you that asked for pictures of my MV exhaust with the JET-HOT coating, I haven't forgot about it, and will get some pictures downloaded before it goes into storage.

I just put Michelin's on with no regrets. Didn't like the new Diablos.

I just placed my 3rd set of pilot sports on the MV. The only difference from the 1st 2 sets is the use of 180's in the rear. It makes a huge difference! Good luck , Masis.

I'm running Metzler Sportec M1's. They grip as well as the Pilots and heat up 3 times as fast.

I've run 2 sets of Pilots and now Diablo Corsa's. Pilots are a good tire but Corsa's are much better on the track. Use 70 profile on front and drop to 180 on rear..fantastic. Pete.

I use Michelin Pilot Sport on the road and Metzeler Rennsport or Pirelli Supercorsa (190/55!! rear-tire) for track-days.

The Michelin-PS does it about 5500 KM (rear) on the road, thatīs a bit more than the Pirelli MTR21/22 Corsa, with which the bike came to me.

Hope that helped Roland

I have been on Pirelli Diablo Corsas for a couple of thousand miles now, 190 rear and 120/70 front, can't fault them on road or track.
