Did you ever try the 003 race compounds? Good tires.

Try the D211 N-tecs in a 190. GREAT tires. Steep pricing but they last forever.

Keep in mind, we are riding the same bike.
I have 190 GPas. Love love the grip and feel but don't like the profile on my 5.25 rear. I can't find a retailer, either locally or online that will sell me the BT003 race compounds, they keep showing up with RSes, which I've run at the track and found myself slipping around like crazy on. I'm not really a fan of Michelin prices. Thanks though.

I thought of the GP-A's after I posted. Those are probably a better buy for you than the 211's.

PM 101lifts.

He had a guy selling the 003's (race compound I believe) for crazy low prices.

If you are stuck on the 180's the B-stones are a good tire for the price.

Yeah I'm not racing. I think I know where 101 gets his rubber so I ordered from them. They're far, but they'll ship, so I ordered a set of 003s. Race tires are expensive.

I want to see if they have the other 2 colors in that size and if they do I will prolly pick them up
