I have a sportmax q2 for my rear tire which is fairly new, but my front tire is worn and needs replaced.

I'm looking at the Michelin pilot road 2s/3s sport touring

Or should I pit the sportmax q2 on the front as well?

All my riding is street/hwy however I ride aggressively from time to time, and tend to ride spirited every now and then.

If the sport touring michelins offer the same traction for my style of riding, then I don't see a reason not to use them as they offer higher mileage. Opinions?

1 vote for pilot road 2 simply because I've had such great luck with them. 8500 miles before they start to flatten in the middle, probably had a few thousand miles left in them, only replaced for track day.

I'm running Pirelli Diablo Rosso II on the rear with a Rosso in the front. I have always gone 2 rears to a front and hope that the dual compound rear will take this to a 1-1. I have a 26 mi. commute. So far, the rear looks almost new and when I turn up the wick, I haven't had anything take away my confidence in grip.

I've ran nothing but PR2's since they came out. the PR3 is the replacement, and from everything I've seen, are even better.

I push my bikes HARD in the corners, and never had them give me grief. The also wear very well.

I run a roadsmart rear and a Q2 front. The fronts last so long there is no reason not to go for the stickier choice.

I was running shinko 005 on my 04 750. Had 5k on it when I sold the bike and showed little to no wear.

Only time I had them slip was in a hard lean on paint when it was raining. Other than that nothing.

Good choice. You can expect over 10k mi out of them as long as you keep them properly inflated and aren't doing burnouts.
