Sport,

What are your thoughts on the aproved tire list. Im not trying to bring up a real hornets nest, I am just having problems finding a M-1with the special b rating. I was thinking of moving to the m-3, but would like to know what type of options I have.

I dont play to hard, but I do like lean a little. Any experience you have here would be great.

Thanks,

Don't waste your time worrying about it. Go get a set of Pilot Power 2CT's. You won't look back.

ZX9,

Those seem to be relatively new tires. Do you have any info on total miles per set? I havent heard alot about them. I have had Road Pilots on my k12rs when I had it and loved them. I have heard good things about the Power Pilots, but dont have much info on the 2CT.

Thanks,

I don't worry about using an approved list of tires from BMW - they are not going to test every brand on every model and so far I've run M1's, Z6's, Corsa III's and Avon Vipers with no ill effects.
