tires

please i dont want to turn this into a comparison or which tire is better or not everyone has their personal opinions so please refrain.

bridgestone just released a new tire the s21 hypersport. in the article in road racing world they said they compare to the q3 and the corsa rosso i thought the q3 and the rs10 (r10) and super corsa were in comparison .

my question is this then where does this new tire fall? what is the rs10 tire? are the s21 just replacing the s20 evo ? they also mention the v02 slick anybody try those?

im all confused.

also anybody running the superbike pro ?

also rumor is superbike pro is being discontinued by pirelli or should i say just renamed. i want to pull my hair out with this i cant keep up.

flobrand how are the nteck treating you?
Thanks from Gunny Fitz

come on sprinkles this is not a rossi thread i post plenty of those you can say what you want there about rossi i welcome and enjoy the debate. im being serious here i need new tires and am on the fence so many damn choices. i wish rossi would chime in though because as we all know he is the only rider to have special tires made just for him so he could win. tires were never an issue until stoner started winning or should i say when rossi started not winning but this isnt the thread for that. i can start another one on the history of all that how rossi blocked stoner from going to yamaha and how he threatned to quit if he didnt have HIS tires . maybe it will be mentioned in the rossi movie coming out.

this is a tire thread.
Thanks from Gunny Fitz

To my understanding it is replacing the s20, a more street oriented muliti compound tire. So probably close to a rossi corsa and q3, from my knowledge the rs10 (or whatever it is) is the competition to the supercorsa. They would be the track focused tire.

there was a kid on my track that had a new r1 with the r 10 rs10 whatever it is in the states he said the tires were great for 2 track days.

ok so the q3 is not on the level of the supercorsa thats interesting thanks i guess thats the gpa pro a dot racing tire.

Hey Mark, as you know if ran the superbike pro last year and they did well for the price but my local track punished the right side of the tire and it showed with a flat area on that side. I ran the set for 5 track days before I decided to try the N-tecs.

I ran the N-Tec last season for two days at Thunderhill in Nov and it they were colder damp days which I just lowered the pressures more and took it easy. So far this year, my first track day on 4/18 was very hot and they performed awesome and the wear looked great. These are about the same cost as the superbike pro and sell for $369 per set 120/200.

From my understanding and what I know, the superbike pro will heat up quicker and has a much more flexible carcass. The Dunlop has a much stiffer carcass and likes plenty of heat.

My buddy had the rs10 on his r1, his suspension wasn't set up and or killed the tires in one day. The template were higher but halfway through the day his traction control was going great crazy, the tires got greasy. The q3 is a good tire and they warm up quick but at faster speeds and higher template I've seen them have their flaws, they don't handle it well. The Supercorsa has done well for me and everyone else I know, the Michelin power cup seems legit. At that point might as well run the slicks

the RS 10 will be destroyed after a track day if running them hard.

The US Ntecs are a good tire I run them, the front tire last's a long time the rears you should get a weekend out of (maybe more) and they are bidirectional so you can flip them. The only issue with them is you need to run the hard to keep the heat in them (I don't know what times you run at NJMP), also the front be a little vague but overall I like them

There is a new Pirellitires that is named the SC3. It's an endurance race tire. IF you are using an SC2 as your track day tires, its not for you.
