Just thinking about rubberwear for next season?

Do i stick with Dunlop KR825 or change to Avon AM26 or Heidanau K45 RSW??
These all being 18" types.. K45 are definately cheaper!

Whats availible for 17"? Is it time to change?

Hi Mike.

I have no experience on the Heidanauís or the Savaís that Nick has used this year so I will leave comments on their performance to others.

I do have experience of racing on Avonís, Michelinís and Dunlopís. Both the Avonís and Michelinís griped well but tended to let go without warning, the better of the two being the Avonís. Having raced on both the 18Ē KR825ís and 17ĒKR364ís Dunlopís I consider them both superior to the Avonís because they donít let go without warning but tend to slide controllably. The KR364ís I have raced on have used the front tyre on the back as well as on the front so I canít comment on the 115/50 rear. But I consider the 17Ē KR364ís better than the 18Ē KR825ís because the KR364ís have better grip at full lean and also give better feed back when they are about to go into a slide, also better control in the slide.
