MissedApex Q3+ is decent, especially if you can time it with a rebate. Our street bike doesn't get ridden much, so I can't comment on overall tire life, but I've never had any complaints on the street and they handle an intermediate track pace with ease.

But this past weekend at the track was wet and/or cold and the Pirelli Rosso Corsa II's were much more consistent and planted in the wet than the Q3+ (jumping between bikes). The Q3+ kept wanting to step out the rear even at a gentle fixed lean/throttle. Once it dried up some, they were fine though.

If you're street only with an occasional spirited backstreet ride, I'd look more at Michelin Pilot Road5 or Pirelli Angel

koth442 +3 for the Q3 or Q3+'s.

I agree with this 100%. I love Owning a bike that comes from the factory with tires made to carve corners with precision. Not many things are more exciting than hard cornering and the Supercorsaís are made
To do just that.

Bmore For great mileage and all weather riding, Road 5 and Angel GT are the best. I commuted on the Daytona with Angels for years, easily got way more than 10,000 miles and never felt like I was lacking grip.

Pirelli Angel GT

I've been running Pirelli Angel GT's for the past few years (on my second set). Find them great in dry and wet conditions as well as gripping well in the cold. I'm not the knee dragger type of rider so if you're looking for outright performance these may not fit your needs.

I also find I get more than double the mileage as I did from my prior tires.

Arawn For that kind of use I'd go with Michelin Road 5s. The Q3 are fantastic, but short lived, and if you're not pushing it there is no point in going with that kind of tire. The Road 5 is surprisingly capable and leaps and bounds better in the wet, not to mention it will last twice as long as a Q3.

Bmore Dunlop has been offering rebates for their Q3+'s for years too. Make sure you send your receipt to Dunlop.

Shamrock Another vote for Dunlop Q3+. They last, heat up easy, and they are a fraction of the price of other brands.

Which is the group I ride in. I should have noted that the 675's I refer to on mileage were previous Street Triple 675's.
