I have a Honda CBR300R and I’m considering changing the IRC tires as they are useless in the wet and the front doesn’t inspire any confidence. In some corners I feel like the front is going away from me and have to lift the motorcycle up. What should I fit?
Although the Honda CBR300R comes with bias-ply / cross-ply tires as original equipment there are several very good, higher-performing radial alternatives these days and what might surprise you is that some of them are cheaper than the bias-ply tires.
In the 110/70 R17 and 140/70 R17 sizes Bridgestone make their S20 EVO, which is very good in wet conditions. Continental make their very high-performance Attack SM, Michelin make their Pilot Street Radial, which is different to their standard Pilot Street, and Pirelli have their Diablo Rosso II.
