Hi everybody,

I know there is a lot of treads about tires

What I can't find is a picture from the back, comparing the Dunnie 250 E3 and the Metz 260. Or the Avon 250 vs Dunnie 250, or Metz 260 and the Avon 250.

I think there is a lot of members really interested in these pictures.

Myself, I'm buying a M109RZ black/orange 2011 in the coming months and want to go with a fat ass tire on a stock rim from the beginning.:2excited: Now I read all the threads about the 300/280/260/250 and so on, but seeing is believing 8)

Anybody? please send us:doorag: all the pictures you have:bigthumbsup:

Thx

Alex

Looking at the curve of the profile, it sure seems that the Avon is more rounded compared to the Dunlop. Should make it easier to get into a curve. I replaced the stock Dunlop with an E3 240, getting about 7,000 miles until done. Am replacing the E3 with a 240 Avon Cobra(Dennis Kirk-$180) Mileage can't be much worse, I hope. Looking forward to better handling. I am sticking to "narrow" 240 width to help in the twisties. Yes, I am aware that guys can use 300's and do real well on the curves.

tires

I think there are a few great pictures to see here, this gives me a idear into how my bike is gonna look.

maybe any more? or any feedback on Avon compared with the Metz 260??

It looks like there is not to big of a difference between the stock Dunnie and the Metz 260, is this thru? or is there something wrong with my eyes??

Any experience here??

thx guys

Alex
