Depend's on what your gonna do with 'em. Metzler won me over with the
Rennsport's, but you can't go wrong with any of them.

If your not worried about mileage I'd go with the Metz Rennsports,otherwise the pilots are very good. :)

I don't know what everyone else is getting for mileage out of the Rennsports but I can only afford them for track days. My Rennsport rear wore out in under 700 miles on the road. However, I positively KNOW that the Rennsports won't let me down. My gonads double in size when I put them on.

I run the Pilot's and I'm finding them to be very good. I don't know weather cold is an issue were you live. But this time of year, I'm finding they still stick pretty good, even in the colder weather.

What kind of mileage are you guys getting from the Pilots? Have any of you experienced the "wobble" that some claim?

The mileage all depends on how you ride and where!!!...If the roads you ride on are mostly concrete then your tires will not last half as long!!!

Mostly black top. I almost got 3k out of the stock D207. I don't race.
Well at a track anyway :wink: Hoping to get at least 3500 - 4000

I got less than 1900 miles out of my stock rear Dunflop. I don't give my 12 a break... that is what I bought it for... BUT the stock rear tire would 'spin' very easily. I was doing burn-out without even trying. Before I knew it, my tire was showing metal! Maybe it was defective, who knows.

I put a BT-010 on the back and I have 4500 miles on the bike and the tire still has a few miles to go and I even treat it much worst that the stock Dunflop. For my riding style, the BT-010 does just fine.

BT010

I also have 4,500 on my BT010's. I still have some tread left. I commute daily. I like the feel of the 10's. If you commute I would suggest trying the 10's first to get the better mileage they offer. Then try the others if they do not meet your needs.
