    I have those tyres on my best bike too, absolutely love them. Definitely prefer them to GP4000's

    IMHO do not match the bike in the slightest - fugly is the word that comes to mind and would be much better in plain black. Sorry, just my view.

    I like it but think I would prefer plain black tyres too.

    Here's the all black look for the haters

    If I'm honest, I'm not generally a great fan of the all black look either but I do think that it's the lesser of the two evils in this case.

  • I run Vittoria corsa , they seem to get lots of small nicks and cuts in them but they just keep going. They grip and feel better than most of the others I've tried.
    Don't bother with the diamanté pro , which cut and slice to bits then fail , there is a reason they are dirt cheap now.
    Your bike , your fun.
    Good luck.
