group!
I just wanted to share as it took me some time to source tires that had an aggressive profile, which also supported Warrior Stock wheels.
I ended up going with the following
Front:
Pirelli Angel GT 120/70/18
Rear:
Pirella Rosso Corsa III 200/55/17

I've only had the tires for a few days and so far love them. The bike does not fight me going into turns, it wants to move off the center line.
The plus side with the Rosso Corsa, is that it's a Triple Compound tire. This will hopefully translate into better longevity than the Dual Compounds out there.
The Angel GT is a touring tire, and i've seen people boast about some fairly extreme life spans.

again, i just wanted to share what i've done with the stock set up, as finding a 200/50/17 rear is near impossible with a matching 120/70/18 for the front.

Thanks for the info. I’ll be buying new tires next riding season. I have heard a lot of good about the Avon Cobras I think is the name. Keep us updated on how they do in the long run?

will do. i've only had it back and forth to work which is a short commute.
the profile of the pirelli helps the bike to feel lighter as the tires allow it to flick far easier than you'd think for a bike with a warrior's weight. I'm use to sport bikes, these tires help bridge that gap between the two.

Any update on these tires? I am going to try and get a new set of shoes on the bike within the month. Can't decide what I should go with.

Almost chose this tire last summer. Asked friends who tried it. They said Michelin Pilot Road 3 better. And Michelin Pilot Road 4GT better than 3. This is true, checked personally. Regarding Michelin Pilot Road 4GT, I only have the it's resource question open still. On Michelin Pilot Road 3 rided on 25 thousand kilometers. Often in heavy rain. Great tire!

I haven't put a ton of miles on them really, i'd have to go back and see what i've put on this set.
I love them. They bring back my sport bike days. the pirelli's make the bike very 'flick-able' for the canyon rides.
if you're doing longer rides and mostly highway stuff, i would not recommend pirelli's as the profile is not ideal for that type of riding style.

I asked for suggestions on the Facebook group. I ended up getting the Metzler 880 in the front and the 888 in the rear. I had a set of Pirelli night dragons on my old sport bike so I know they’re great tires but longevity was also what I was looking for. Thanks for letting me know though.

what i like about the diablo corsa 3 is that it's a triple compound to hopefully help with longevity and assist with a smaller contact surface when going down the highway vs the varying compounds for the surfaces dedicated to the twisties.

I almost went with a 190 sport bike tire but opted against it. I’ll put a re Jew out on the tires in a few months.
