Dunlop 208rr's?

Anyone used these? They came on a bike I'm going to be riding on the track and I'm curious if they're going to suck or not.

I use 'em! Great skins!

Tire choice is about as crazy as a topic as brand choice!

Some tires are predictable with loss of traction where others stay glued but when they begin to go away it's instant.

Different riding styles prefer different tires.

If you're just getting into this try all the brands and see what fits you best.

FYI - I always use the Dunlop D208GP's but from England. They have better grip! Tough to find and they cost a little more but I think they're worth it!

Nah, I've been at the track/racing thing for awhile. I'm a Michelin guy and a PRC/PR3 combo is a tire-gasm for me. However, my race bike's fork aren't done, among other thingsso I'm just going to skip this CCS round and take my new street bike to a trackday tomorrow at Autobahn instead. It came with 208RRs, which I'd never heard of. Thats why I asked. I'd rather have PP 2CT's on it because I know they kick ass, and once this set is done, that'll be what goes on.

Mainly I'm just trying to find out what this particular tire's characteristics are because I'm kinda stuck with 'em at the moment. I'm fully aware that different tires have varying levels of predictability and so forth. I want to know whether these 208RR's are predictable, prone to gettin hot and greasy, etc.

Well, they don't suck too bad but they aren't Pilot Powers, andthey sure ain't 2CT's.
