I'm about due for a new set of tires and need suggestions as to whats best. I don't do a lot of long distance riding and occassionly get a little agressive in the corners. I live in an area where I can safely do high speed runs - and I often do (120-125 mph). I've checked out the previous posts but didn't find much beyon 2004-05. Any suggestions appreciated.

Assuming you still have the stock rear-end on there the Avon Storm is pretty much the standard. Long wearing and great traction. I buy mine here:

They usually have the best prices that I've seen anywhere.

Yes Avon Storm, these in particular.


Rear 200/50ZR17 AV56 Storm ST
Front 120/70ZR18 AV55 Storm ST

Notice the 200mm rear is 204mm wide - it fits fine as you know.


I mention all this because when this tire first came out there were some tires marked as something other than Z rated. I believe those are all gone but just in case you might be sure the vendor info shows the Z rating, and check your tires when they arrive.


Also, as good as it was, the Avon Azarro isn't near the same tire as the new ST.
