Hi guys. I've looked everywhere on here for tyre recommendations for a TT600 (2002 model). Since I can't find it, can anyone recommend a set of tyres as I need to replace mine soon. Happy to ride in the wet as well as dry so help is much appreciated. Also, recommend a tyre shop (Avon, Bath, UK). Cheers.

Michelin Pilot Road 3s seem to be the hands-down winner in the wet riding category, and I've not heard anything bad about them in the dry, either.

Cheers,

To be honest with you I haven't a clue!! This is my first big bike and the tyres on it are the original from 10 years ago. I have heard good things about the Pilot, I'm just wondering if there are others available, like to have a choice.

Lots and lots of models will come up for riding in the dry, but PR3s consistently get the nod for wet grip.

Does that really matter if you'll be riding in the rain?

Wayhey!!! There it is, give the man a pride. Lol. Well, I know bugger all about tyres on bikes, even avoid reading about them in bike mags. So just after words of wisdom.
