Michelin 2CTs

Postby 24c » Tue Mar 04, 2008 9:02 pm

With the start of a new biking season about to start for most of you, anybody who is looking for an excellent sport tyre might like to consider these.

Don't expect more than 3000 miles from them.
I've just started riding the GTS again, and it'll be changing

Hmmm, that's why I said most, but then most have passed their car test. :twisted: :wink:

BTW, you could expect to get 5000 miles from yours, 20000 on the edges. Now get back on topic

I've got the Michelin Pilot Road 2's with the dual compund on my '06 BMW K1200GT and love them. Only put about 1,000 miles on them so far but they work great. I'm thinking I'll replace the Conti Road Attacks with these Michelin's when they wear out on my GTS if they come in the right size.

They come in 180/55 x 17 AFAIR, which will pop on nicely, no 170s though, interesting choices for the fronts. :8

UPDATE

So grab a 120/60 front and a 190/55 rear, and lower the front and jack up the rear!

Im running these done a 1000 miles now and lot of motorway work no sign of flatting off, the GTS turns fast with these on and feedback is really good
