I've had my T-Bird Sport for about 6 months now. When i bought it it had about 15,000 miles adn still had the original rubber on it. After my buddy dropped it he replace the front tire w/ a Michilin Pilot but the back still looks pretty good so we left it. Anyway, over the last 2 weeks I've had a couple of close calls and almost ate it because my back tire is sliding all over the place. I've tried to find a 160/70 match but haven't had any luck. My dealer suggested to us a 160/60, but i'm not sure if that's going to affect the ride. Does anyone have a thought on that or what would be a good matching set to go with?

Thanks for your help guys. I think I'm going to go with the Michelin Pilot Power w/ a 170/60 rear. I've already got a Pilot on the front and from what I've been hearing is that they are a pretty ***** good tire. Anyway, Thanks again.

You could easily do Pilot Roads on the TBS unless you ride really hard, then Powers will be an ace choice. Go for the Pilot Power CTs for extra life.
