What are the Q best wet weather tour­ing tyres?

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Garagae -

I run Pirelli Su­per­cor­sas on my Tri­umph Day­tona 675, but I’m plan­ning a trip to Ire­land – and ex­pect­ing rain – so I would like to fit some bet­ter all-round rub­ber for the trip, then re­fit the Pirellis on my re­turn. I’m not a fan of Bridge­stones as I did not like the feel­ing on the front with the last set. Willy Scott, email

A An­swered by Bryn Phillips, Cam­brian Tyres In or­der to keep your tyre costs rea­son­able, look at sports-tour­ing tyres – that way you’ll have the best lev­els of safety and per­for­mance if it does tip it down. The tyres that fit that brief are the Con­ti­nen­tal Roa­d­at­tack 2, Dun­lop Road­s­mart II, Met­zeler Road­tec Z8 or Miche­lin Pi­lot Road 3.

I would say that the Con­tis and Met­zel­ers will give you the best feel and the Miche­lins and Met­zel­ers just about edge out the other two on wet grip, but we’re not talk­ing big mar­gins and any of these tyres will give you re­spectable all-round per­for­mance for even brisk tour­ing.
