Pirelli agianst Yoko: any feedback?

Recommended Posts

I have now drivne 60.000 KM all on the Pirellis. The rate back to front went up to 4:1, (4 backtire sets for the time of 1 fronttire set)...

Soon there is a complete change do be done: Althou I am totally satisfied with the "cheap" and "everywhere sold" Pirellis P-Zero MO, I wonder if somebody has some experience on the Yokohama tires. This Pirelli meltdown effect is a real pain. I don't think that the Yokos hold longer, but wonder if

somebody could give me a feedback.

Wow, I'm at a 1:1 rate, apparently I'm too late on the right pedal at corner exit. More seriously, changing to wider tires might help, the 255 are just too small for all the torque.

The curves are the "Pirellieaters"... the more mountainroads, the quicker they go down. Highway straight on is not "the problem".
