Durability 4/5 Ease of Installation 4/5 Performance 4/5 Style 4/5
Good performance and good price

I put a pair of these on a '99 Ninja 250 in November; it's April now and I've put about 3500 miles on them. Durability wise I think these will go quite a ways - especially on a small bike. The rear tire is starting to get a little flat in the middle thanks to the freeway, but not enough to notice when you get onto the back roads. I picked the bike up this winter with the original tires on them (15 year old Dunlop K630's) and replaced them with the Pirellis within a couple hundred miles. The Dunlops rode like turds wrapped around a wheel, so by comparison these are amazing. Grip feels good in the rain even riding aggressively, just be careful on painted lines of course. I ride the little ninja as fast as it will go all the time everywhere, and these hang on to the road with no problems. The profile is pretty pointy compared to a Dunlop GT501, so the handling is sharp and turn-in is quick. Overall a good tire, and it's a good choice compared to the limited offering for 16" wheels. Will probably try the Sport Demon's next, but I'm definitely not disappointed with these.

I estimate the front won't be close to the wear-bars until about 8000 miles.

Q: My current tire size and specs I have seen thus far are that the rear tire size for MY/THIS year make and model of bike calls for a 180/70R 16 yet your set size is the rear @ a 170. Does this really matter?

A: The tire size absolutely matters when it comes to handling and fitment. Please refer to your owner's manual for correct fitment for your bike.
