Looking for tires for the SWing...I think the Bridgestones are getting tired and I don't like them much anyway.

Having done a little research, it looks like there are several good choices, which include the Pirelli Diablos, the Metzler Feelfrees and the Michelin PowerPures.

The Michelin tires are dual compound, which helps wear, but theoretically retains decent cornering...hard compound in the center tread and softer on the sides...that said, I've seen reviews that rate them OK...but I'm trying to do a bit better than that...the current Bridgestones are only OK or OK-, IMO.

The Pirellis get good ratings, the Metzlers also...Pirellis slightly better.

Anyone have any comments regarding these three choices or others I haven't considered?
