I needed a set of tires for my wife's f4i. I wanted to get her the bto 16s , but they weren't on sale. I got a set of these on sale for $190, the compound seems harder than the bto16, and is still holding up well, and the cornering is good too. On clover leaf turns she can hit 70 mph, where 25 mph is the recommended speed.

I have the Pirelli Diablo Rosso 2's and they are awesome tires! They are great on wear and have no problem holding a good tight line on the turns.

Call Brad at Superbikesupply for a good price!

based on the replies I assume you mean the rosso2's, Pirelli has several tires under the diablo brand, IIRC supercorsas, superbike, superbike pro, rosso corsas, and rosso 2's. (all excellent at their intended purpose, especially the supercorsas, superbike, and superbike pro's) I'm a big Pirelli fan and run the rosso 2 190/55's on the street (I like the steeper profile for the easier tip in that comes from track riding). Excellent tires, actually just ordered a couple sets yesturday. The rosso corsas, like the Q2's, are excellent tires, but more than you need on the street, and not quite enough for the track. If your hard on the throttle, you'll burn through DRC's quick. Rosso 2's have much better life and are better in the wet, but I wouldn't use them on the track.

Don't be a road crayon, pavement does not care how cool you think you look in a t-shirt and shorts.

That or Dunlop Q2 is an awesome tire. One of the best street/track.

I have Supercorsas that came with my HP4, but they don't like the cold. Cold track temp or cold in genreal, they suck. At temp they feel better than my Q2's though.
