Egh been running through my head what tire I want to run this up coming track season. Cant decide between Q3's, S21s, or Superbike Pros. I mainly stick to the east coast with hot track days in the summer, 90 - 100, with some days the track temp hitting 110 and ride in the I group, or "B" group to some. Any recommendations between the 3?

I'd say try them all out and see what you like what gets you more days! But I would trade the s21 for the rs10 my own opinion. All great tires!

I wasn't trying to do this with the current tires I have Michelin Power Cup Evo. They are in 190/55 but I can't get anywhere near 190. Can someone help with pictures or something. I am curious because i wanna know if my current warmers will fit the 190/60 or the 200/55 dunlops since they have the same 191.3 mm
Anyone?

Just find the spec sheets. Not sure if they're even measure off the bike or on the bike, or if the dimensions for width even change in that case. I'd by based on the spec sheets cuz at least you know it's from the manufacturer and they measure them the same way.

A friend has the new Michelin Power RS's on his Fireblade. Will be interesting to see how they perform...

I can only comment on the Q3 and S21, haven't tried the Perelli. The Q3 blows doors on the S21.

Some of the manufacturers, like Pirelli, make it hard to find. You may have to contact an actual Pirelli distributor and they can probably get it. Dunlop makes it easily available online. I thought Bridgestone does too, but I might be wrong.

"Blow the doors off" usually means much better. I've never tried the Q3 but I'm on my second set of S21s and love them to death. I'll probably try the Michelin Power RS's next but doubt they'll be as great as the S21s are in the wet.

Anyone tried the Bridgestone "eye" lean-angle app?

Then I'm sold! I will give the S21s a try. If I dont like them I will just sell them and pick up a set of Q3s

I mean Q3s are much better than S21s. Much better. No comparison. I put the S21's on my sport tour bike cause they slide when pushed hard.

We are talking about two street tires and a track day slick. Go with the slick if money is no option. But, Q3s or S21s don't require warmers. It looks like the Perelli should have warmers from what I have read about them.
