You calling me fat The guy who fitted the power 5s (sixstar tyres, Geordieland) covers a lot of track days and he said the pirelli tyres had improved the mileage on their newer products. Used them years ago but they always lasted 5 mins so Bridgestone became my go to tyre for last 10 years or so. The fitter has asked me to email him with my thoughts as these are the first set of Power 5 he has fitted , they were only launched this year. Guys are always ringing him asking for a recommendation on the best balance between grip and wear rate. All year round rider Pilot Road 5 (fits hundreds of these apparently hence his mistake by bringing them for my bike) Fast road rider but not track days S22 He thinks Power 5 will sit with Pirelli as more capable on track but the Power 5 also a good wet tyre After this he says take your pick of the track focussed tyres as all are really good As ever though tyres are very subjective and boil down to what 'feels' good to you. I saw. Dave Moss snippet once where he was saying some riders dont like a harder carcass as it gives them too much feedback and they cant process it so think its not working well and slipping and sliding when it's not & some cant cope with a softer carcass as it absorbs a lot of what's going on so less feedback but then people can think that means its planted. It's an interesting take on it and probably has a good amount if truth in it.
