Hi,
I just moved to Seattle and my local Yamaha service person told me that I should go for Michelin Pilot Power tires since it is the best for riding in wet roads.

What do you guys think? Do I have any other choice?

Also, What is the sizes do I need to choose and where can I get it for best price?

Thanks a lot..

I ride 03 Yamaha R6.

I have not run the Powers but did run the Sports. Compaired to Metzlers and Pirelli on the same bike in Seattle, I liked the Pirelli's the best.

I found that the Sports would take a while to warm up and settle down compared to both the Metzlers (M-1) and Pirellis. The front tire did not slide around as much too.

Last couple of tires I got from http://www.eastsidemotosports.com/ I'm not actually a fan of the shop but the prices have been good and if I hand out downstairs by the shop while they change the tire(s) they seem to get done quickly. I live and work on the Eastside so they are convenant for me.

In Seattle, http://www.seattlecycle.com/ is a good bet. I've picked a lot of gear from them over the years and been happy.

I don't like mail ordering tires and taking them in to get mounted. Seems like an insult to the local business. Talk to them, I've found that once I figure cost + shipping + my time + installation, I'd rather pay about the same at a local shop.

Thanks a lot for the reply. I live in Bellevue, so East side guys are the one who told me that Michelin Pilot Power is the best since Pirelli Diablo wears out very fast.

I am not sure if I should go for Pirelli Diablo or Pilot Power.

Thanks.
