dude i have ridden on the 259 set and the more expensive ones, and yes you can tell the difference, i'm not fast by any means but if i were doing 4 seconds slower i'd stick with the 259/set as a matter of fact that's what'll do this weekend...

I wish I could test them.. but since I'm using the slicks, and I'm not falling off the thing everytime I ride it anymore.. I'm sticking with the slicks.. its just a confidence thing..


My team-mate seems to like the 209's though.

Ive been running the 180 US gpa's, I think this weekend I am going to try the Us front and a 190 UK rear. Ever run a 190?

Don't forget, you'll need to change your geometry if you're going from the 180 to the 190.

I've gone with the 190 myself.

I talked to dunlop rep he says drop 6mm rear height, said usually its 2-3mm off the rear shock. So I have now 338mm is where my penske is set at for the 190 tire. I am use to 340, but took out 2mm out of the shock you think I should go lower?
