Choosing new tire

Its been a while since I last visited here. Been searching around for new and better performance tire for my '02 ninja ex250. So far I sorted it out to these two, they are in good price at MT-Superstore.com and 4 Wheel Online Tires
Dunlop GT501


Pirelli MT75


Anyone had experience with them?

Hi to everyone, any suggestion about choosing new tyres for my VN1700 Voyager?
(Bridgestone, Avon, Dunlop...)
Now I have Bridgestone Exedra front and rear.
Thanks for your ideas.

Hey there, I almost forgot about this thread. What did you come up with your Vulcan? A buddy here got 22,000 on Micheline Commander II on his 2009 Voyager and recently got American Elite with around 13,000miles now and still looks new. You may want to check both:

Ciao Carbon90,
I have changed my tyres with a couple of Dunlop. Before these I had 3 couples of Bridgestone Exedra (total 48,000 Km - 30,000 miles).
I'm very satisfied of my Vulcan!

Unless your racing all the tires are virtually the same after 9 heat cycles. Get the ones with the coolest tread and be done.
