    k75s tires

    Has anyone been impressed with tires other than metzlers ona k75s. I love the stick of the new 330/550 tires but I hate the mileage. I feel like I have to go back to the me88 on the rear

    Check out Michelin Macadam 50s. I run them on mine and have found them to be a good compromise between stickiness and mileage.

    Garth has it right k75s, The Mac50E front and Mac50 rear is a great combination.

    On my K75s I had pretty good success with the Metzler ME99 rear and ME33 front. Usually 10-12K front and 5-9K depending on how hard you ride. Your tire selection is limited due to the narrow (by today's standards) rim width and most radials will not fit...

    I prefer Michelin.
    I've had nothing but good luck with them.
    Besides, they were the only mfg that would certify their tires for 200mph (M59 rear, A59 front).
