Has anyone used Continental Road Attack tires? According to the Continental website, BMW has specified them as OEM tires for the new R1200RT which uses the same size as the K1200GT.
My first pair lasted 6,700 miles. Great performance & confidence in twisties, slab, dry, and wet. I run 42 rear, 37.5 front. I'm on my second pair, this time with the "C" rating on the rear. Aside from being more difficult to mount, the "C" tire handles the same. While mileage is about the same as the Michelin Roads I had before, I think the RAs handle and stick much better.NY1200GT said:On my GT I've got about 6K on the Conti Road Attacks, great handling tires. Front looks very good, rear is shot. Flat accross the center and cupped on both sides. I did keep the air pressure up and it is a "C" rated tire. I'm willing to try another set, but would be interested in hearing from others, interested in mileage and wear.
The raised lettering on the sidewall of my rear tire reads "Road Attack C"DaveTheAffable said:I bought my Conti Road Attacks a few weeks ago. The outlet I bought them from assured me they were "C" because, "That's what the catalog says they are." (Which I too saw with my own eyes).
Well...they don't have a "C" anywhere on them. I like them! I hope they last. But, in what part of the size designator, or printing on the tire, should I see the "C". :wtf
