2016 CBR500r tires

I purchased my bike a few months ago and the wear on the tires are becoming too questionable. What is a good tire for commuting but have good enough grip for fair weather cruising?

There's lots of threads on tyres. Road Pilot 5's seem to get a good wrap on most of them

There are so many quality tires available today, it's hard to go wrong. Unless you plan to use the bike for occasional track days and more aggressive riding, you have an open list of products. I'd suggest you read through the "Tires" discussions on this forum, to help narrow your search to a few brands and styles. Then go looking for the "best tire for the least money" on your short list. Most retailers have "sales" and mark downs, if you leave yourself the option of more than "1" tire to choose from. Good Luck.

To ride or not to ride? What a stupid question!... Anon

MPR4s. Long lasting and good grip in the dry.

Tom500r, I see what you did there. Replying to a post to offer help, then casually saying you live in one of the most beautiful places on Earth. Leaving the rest of us poor mortals to deal with our less favorable environments. Now, I'll probably carry that thought with me for the rest of the weekend. Thanks, Tom!

Most sports touring tyres will provide more grip then needed in both wet and dry conditions. They heat up quick and last generally over 10 - 15 thousand km. I use Perilli Angel Gt.

One of the biggest mistakes riders make is to over tyre meaning to put on a set the stickiest tyres they can find. the problem here is that they generally take longer to heat up to operating temperature.

Here is a good video I found some time ago.
