Tire Updates

Time to replace my Anakee 3s on my '12 T100 (wire wheels, tiny Union Jack valve stem cover bought from Mini…had to mention those for no reason really), and wondered if anything new is around that I should consider before simply getting another set of Anakees. Thanks in advance for the numerous well thought out reasoned responses.

I am happy with my standard size Avon Road Riders. Haven't had any "in-sticking" issues.

Oooops , I meant un-sticking issues. LOL. you know, sliding ? lack of grip, or especially for you perhaps that should be gripe.

Anakees are a little more offroad capable than the Avon Road Riders. I've used many sets of Avon's on my Bonnie for street and they're great. I have friends that run the Aznakees on their BMW R1200GS 80/20 road/offroad and love them.

Please give me more examples of tire options or I swear I'm gonna order another pair of Anakee 3s. You've been warned!

I'm liking the trail attacks on my tiger. Really good both wet and dry

I replaced the Metzlers on my 2014 T100 with Michelin Pilot Activ tires. I have been pleased with the result. I got rid of the tendency for the OEM tires to follow every longitudinal groove or disturbance in the road surface plus a smoother and less harsh ride. Fuel economy did not change even though I went from a radial to a bias ply tire. I don't ride in the rain so I can't make meaningful comments about wet road performance.
