Continental Tires

has anyone tried a set of Cont sport attack2 tires? They come in the 200/55 size and a whole lot cheaper than the Supercorsas

The tires themselves seem to be well reviewed overall but I haven't seen any specific reports relating to the Panigale. I'm wondering how the DTC reacts as a resutl of the change.

I just ordered a set based on all the great reviews, i will let you know how they ride on the street, I'm a fairly aggressive street rider, but no track.
Thanks from Brad, Claymore and 0612Devil

Open for suggestions here! Was used to Pirellis but got tired of the 1-tire-a-day business and ordered Dunlops.

What a mistake! The 84's just dont cut it, 50 good laps and the grip goes away! Don't care if the wear is good for 200 laps, when the grip goes, I bail!
The 74's are close to SC2's but are worn to $hit after a decent trackday just the same with a 40$ premium. 84 fronts are outright dangerous with the 74 font being the only Dunlop worth mentionning. The harder sidewall makes for a razor sharp turn-in with exceptional feel.

A perfect world would be a 7455 front with an SC2 200/60 rear.

I read some very good reviews of the Continentals too and been thinking to replace the Pirellis soon. The German magazine I read posted a comparison test this spring: the Continentals have been mentioned especially for heating up very quick, great road riding and dry performance (not so much wet performance though, but I don't care much). Breaking performance isn't the best either. The 4'000km long therm test showed that Continentals are only second last in durability (approx. 5'000km estimated), but still a lot better than the Pirellis. Unfortunately they only tested the Diablo Rosso Corsas, not the Supercorsas.

Based on this comparison, I was actually thinking about ordering the Metzeler Sportec M7-RR, which offers great dry and wet performance and approx. 6'000km of tyre life.

When I ordered these I found the sizes needed are hard to find "in stock", AMT had the 200 rear in stock with a 3 week back order time for the front, but they were the only people actually listing the 200 rear. M/C superstore doesn't list the front at all or the rear, I ended up getting the front from Dennis Kirk, and they only had 2 in stock.

I was thinking of trying them out next spring as tire change will be needed. I actually really like the first sport attacks way back in the day.. hoping for similar performance from the newest iteration.and let the record show.even on this forum I'm a Michelin fan boy. . I track/race on power cups and slicks boom haha
