    Hi Chris. 2ct's for me. 3000 miles and still going strong. I went for a 180 rear, as I didn't like the feel of the 190 rear that was on the bike when I got it. Drop in is far smoother feeling and a bit quicker now, although that might have more to do with the profile of the 2ct's compared to the Dunlops it was on to start with. Great tyres so far, no complaints.

    I paid 205 fitted.

    True, but i dont know how they could make them much stickier i've only had one scare on them and that was my own fault with a little to much power coming out of hawthorns at brands and even tho it went i still think if i had any other tyre on in its class it wouldn't of eventually gripped and i would of high sided the bitch. rant over lol

    would you say they are a good track tyre, but don't get hot enough quick enough fro road

    thats why i left racetecs as i had a cold slide into a wall

    you need somet sticky but works at lower temps and warms quicker imho

    or do you use them for road as well and take it easy until warm

    Michelin 2ct's for me as well, had them since they first came out paid 150 for the pair but have heard good thing about the Pirelli's to.


    Ive always run a 190 so cant comment but a lot of folk do say the 180 turns in quicker. might try one when my rears shot.

    I would be weary of going for the super super sticky tyres just for road use as the do only work well when they have got heat in them and i have heard not to good in the wet ?

    Pirelli Corsa 3 here also, tried Bridgestone 020 but made bike very unstable over white lines ridges in road etc.. Paid 110 for rear, but only lasting about 1600 miles, 3/4 worn already and only been on 6 weeks..Gulp.

    No road as well never had a problem or to be honest or even thought about tyres whilst on the road i give them 5-10 mins to warm up then i'm dropping knees and hanging off like a monkey for the rest of the ride, even when caught up in traffic, once past it next bend drop it in and has always stuck like nothing i've had before michelin, dunlop etc never got close, not that i've ever really tried (fair weather rider) but have heard from a lot of corsa 3 user that say that there just as good in the wet too, this is just my personal opinion of course tho

    cos if tey don't; then don't make my mistake in the damp like i did, they WILL NOT STICK in the wet, the same!!!
