Tires for my 1299s

I do mostly street riding, in race mode. I 'RIDE' my bike and sometimes drag a knew every now and then. Now I need new tires. Are there any recommendations of tires I should get other than stock or should I just get the stock tires again? Trying to save a little money, but, hell its a $25k bike so I guess I should be worried about some $400 tires now. At 7500 miles now.

q3 if you are a street rider. 190 /55 they are wider than the pirelli but not as tall. search function is your friend . metzler makes a great street tire too

Q3s wear out faster (center line) I think, compared to Rosso corsa and Diablo 2/3. All street riding. Tried them on my 899 and didn't like it. The profile is too steep for my style. The just drop into corners way too fast. They're VERY grippy tho and priced better than the Diablo line.

most on here for street riding will tell you go with the q3.
i for one like the q3 a lot and the price is amazing (get them in march with the rebate).
i dont understand how you dont love the turn in the way it falls over in the turn.

Anyway. boo9b said the metzler m7rr is a good street tire but he destroyed the tire on the track.

i do see metzler came out with the racetecrr but i dont know anything about them.

trust me go with the q3

yea that doesn't add up and he also said he drags knee sometimes riding that aggressively will not make the SP last 7500 miles.
