another tire thread

I am planning on going on holiday with my V4.
I will do a big tour through the Alps end of May. 2000 kilometers in 4 days

Of course, it might rain. The stock Pirelli's are terrible in rain. But in size 200-60, you only have these tires or some Dunlops with almost no thread also.

I would like some S21/S22, SportSmart, M7RR, .. in size 200-60

Does anybody know if they exist or are they planning on making them?

Change your tire size options and you should have plenty of tires to choose from that will give you high mileage wear

The Q3 Plus offers decent life and good grip.

I would agree I don't think it would hurt to run a 190 for your trip and as you mentioned there are a lot more options. The Q3 does have good grip just not sure of its rain capabilities.

what about handling?
if I change to 200-55, will I sense it in agility?
Will it be more difficult to turn?

FYI, the bike is not there yet, should be here end of March. I have no experience with the V4 yet
