That would really depend on how you ride and what you intend to do with them, i.e track days or touring?


The best rubber by far I have ridden on recently are the BT016's. I use them for fast road and ride all year round.

Thank you Triumphrider600, the BT-016's are a very good all  round / multi purpose tyre. You can track day them, ride fast on the road with them or even commute, too.

tyres zx6r

Ive got a zx6r 09 came with 016's on it,felt alright but only lasting 3000 max on the back,went to have a rear 016 fitted for 150 quid for 180 had a pair of Maxxis supersport fitted ,read all the good things bag things,but i dont ride in wet much,but on a dry fast road ride just as good as 016's,might only get same milage out of them,but a lot cheaper.only diference taks a bit longer to scrub in
