Anyone have an opinion about the new Pirelli Slick sizing? I've been pretty happy with the 180/60 but they have discontinued it and replaced it with a 190/60.

Thanks,

I don't know dude, I just finished off a SC3 rear in a 180/60. It was fun and made me feel like a hero with all the slow predictable sliding it did. According to the spec sheet on them they are the same width and 6mm taller. (https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0...021_Pirelli_RR_Fitment_guide.pdf?v=1615401742) This may help me a lot because I want better turn in but the forks are on the second line showing and my front tire is hitting the radiator support under hard braking. So dropping the front down for sharper turn in will only make it worse. I think my next move will be going to a 6" rear wheel and try the WSBK sizes 200/65 & 125/70.
