You can ride it, but you better not get to wild in the turns. I
would change it asap.

It should have been replaced a few hundred miles ago.
well I live in florida so there are not many twisties around. This leaves me with alot on the "sides" and not much in the middle. This is what makes me hate to buy another $150 tire when I have so much tread left. I know it isnt righ I was just explaining myself.:music487

With no twisties do you get the harder compound tires? what are you running now? You might be alright if you stay in town cruising where you don't get over 45 MPH.

I have pirelli diablos front and rear. I love the tires and they are supposed to have dual compound from what I hear(on this forum). I just do alot of wheelies clutching and bouncing. I was reading in some other post that I should go with Avon tires beacuse they are harder and better the dunflops. Is this statement true? What tires should I go with?
