Recommend me a tyre?


New Member
I've got a trip to the Cevennes coming up in a month. It's going to be about 2,700 miles. Call it 3K to be on the safe side.

I've never used anything other than Sports Touring tyres, and have decided that I'd like to give something more sporty a go for this trip. I was thinking along the lines of BT-016 PROs but reading reviews, I'm not convinced they'll last the trip.

What would you recommend for a loony on a 954?

I had Bridgestone S20's on my new one last year for a trip to Florac, the rear was gone by 2700 miles, so I kinda went off Bridgestones.

I always liked Pirelli Diablo Corsa's and the H version for the 2004 blade tends to last a bit longer than the normal ones. I have a trip up to Scotland next month and was going to try the Rosso Corsa's - but if you want them to last a bit longer the Rosso II's are good.
