Best tyres for a GSX-R1000 K3

Published: 11 January 2011

Q. I have a Suzuki 2003 GSX-R1000 and the tyres I’m stuck between are the Bridgestone BT023s and the Metzeler Sportec M5s.

Please could you shed some light on the best out of the two?

A. The Bridgestone is more of a sport touring tyre than supersport rubber, so the Metzeler will probably suit you more on the GSX-R.

You could look at the Dunlop Sportsmarts and Michelin Power Pures, too.
