Reinforced tires... Z8 'C' and PR3 'B'
I noticed Acemeboy's post on the 'C' rated Z8's. The Metzler site does not, as far as I can see, mention the 'C' rating for their tire... I found it on the on a tire reseller's site (same with Acemeboy I think). What is the secret?
The 'B' rated PR3 is identified on the Michelin site (in text, not in the list of sizes), but no one here has discussed (as far as I can see)... is there a reason for that?
Report from local dealer is that the Z8 'C' tracks better and is in fact the BMW-recommended tire. I don't know with the PR3's.
Both tire brands for suitable sizes, without the reinforcing, are rated OK for the weight of the bike (58W and 73W).
