Q Which is the best wide tyre for my Monster?
My last bike, a KTM 950 SM, worked really well on Michelin Pilot Road 3s. The fast warm-up and wet grip was more useful than the grip a sports tyre provides in the dry. The problem is my new Monster 1200R has a 200-section rear, which limits choice. Brian Cable, email
Answered by Bryn Phillips, A Cambrian Tyres You could consider a less extreme sports tyre than your OE Supercorsa SPS. Bridgestone’s Battlax S21, Pirelli Diablo Rosso III and Metzeler Sportec M7RR are all recommended for your bike in the 200/55 ZR17 rear size. All will supply superior performance in cold and wet conditions and better mileage than your current tyres.
