I am after a quiet tyre replacement for my 2009 XR6. It now has the Dunlop Sport 01
( the supplied factory tyre ).

I have done 49,000 on them, still has 4mm tread and are 6 years old.

I would buy them again but they are no longer produced.

After a lot of reading and research / reviews, I have come up with a short list in the $210 to $240 class tyres.


Michelin Primacy 3 ST

Pirelli Cinturato P7

Michelin Pilot Sport 3

Dunlop Sport FM800


Has any Forum members had any recent experience with these in a 245 x 17 x 45 size ?

I would be interested in any informed comment.



Cheers all
