Tyre pressures for M7RR

I ride mainly twisty roads with 100km+ speeds, Im in Australia and regularly ride in 30 degree+ weather "86F" I have just changed to Metzeler Racetec K3 tyres , The rear got a flat today with less than 1000kms on it which sucks but anyway had to replace it with what my local dealer had in stock which was a Metzeler M7RR, so now have mismatched patterns which I usually don't do but I will see how it goes, anyway what tyre pressures do you recommend I know the RS10's like high pressures, Do you recommend the same with what I have on now. Mainly just aggressive twisty roads no track riding at this stage, Thanks

I run 38psi in each tyre regardless whether it's a touring or sticky tyre.

That tyre is several steps down from the K3 you have on the front. That's quite mismatched in my opinion.

The M7RR rear felt slightly soft after running Q3's. As your ambient temps are quite high, maybe 32 to start with.

I'd be careful on that combination. The M7RR will have less grip.

Have run them on my M for the past 12 months. 31-32F & 33-35R. They are a very good tyre and underestimated.

And that was 16,000 k's getting 2,500ks for a rear and around 4,00 for a front.

Agreed, I thought the Q3 was a good street tyre until I tried the M7RR. More grip, quicker steering, better wear. About the only negative for me is less feel from the front than the Q3.

One big plus is that the rear grip has stayed consistent as the tyre wore. I've found that most tyres slip a little when down to the last 2-3 mm, but the M7RR still grips like it did when new.
