Best tire for me

I've road about 12k miles this season and i'm on my 3rd rear tire. 1st tire the center of the tire wore down can't remember that tire brand 2nd tire did a burn out and 1k miles later it wore down the middle of the tire and those were Q2, now i'm on my 3rd rear tire and i'm using s20's and the middle of the tire is completely wore down and i'm not sure what kind of tire my next tire should be. I've been told to start using the pilot powers but i know that the same problem is going to happen again. What kind of tire should i be using?

Uh, you think it has something to do with the burnouts? You know they don't make a tire designed for long burnouts, right?

I usually get 4k miles from a Q2 and it's the sides that wear down, not the middle. I commute 90 miles a day 4 days a week on the Q2's and I take them to the track every 2 months or so.

You need a dual compound tire to help prevent the wear in the middle which the Q2 is, there are many others as well. Now if you had the original Qualifier that was a single compound tire, I wore out the one that came with the bike in 2k miles.

check your air pressure more often.

factory recommended tire pressure for maximum tire longevity and maximum load is 36f / 42r cold. most people drop a couple psi here or there for more grip/feel, but you should be fine for street riding around. its all personal preference and a lot of factors come into play. rider weight (load on tires), tire carcass stiffness, riding style, etc... play around with it and see what you like the most.

read this thread
Ideal tire pressure for street?
you'll get an idea of what different people run there tires at and there reasoning behind it

Sport Touring for mileage.

Check into sport touring tires. I have ridden 2k on my Continental Road Attack 2, and the words on the tread have just worn off a couple hundred miles ago. They ride great, and the handling is good. Keep in mind, I ride most to and from work and not much on the weekends.

If you do not feel comfort going for the Road Attack 2s, check into one of the lower mileage, Road Attack or Street Attack 2, for your riding style/aggression.

There are several other good brands out there, but Continental just happened to be the one I went with. Good luck.

I just put a set on my CBR1000 and it handles great. I run 33f/36r routinely but I'm 115lbs and do 99% of my riding in the Colorado canyons. I've have them on my MV Agusta F4 Brutale 1078rr and with 3000 miles on the tire I just did a track day at Little Tally. They grip great and all of the seasoned pro-racers that were at the MV Agusta function from the Isle of Man were amazed at how well a sport touring tire was able to heat up and hold. Yes the sides melted a little, but so do all the race take offs. I ran 30f/32r at the track.
The specs for CBR the rear call for a 190/50 but I'm running a 55. LOVE THEM
We put them on the hubby's Ninja 1000 and he's got over 4000 miles on the tires and they have worn great and have plenty of wear left in spite of him being roughly double my weight.

Like others have said. Get the road 3s if you ride in the rain a lot or get the road 2s for normal riding. I got the road 3s on my bike. Handle great for a sport touring tire. Before these I was running the PP2ct
