Hi Guys,

New to the site and just looking for advice really on tyre choice and usage.

Im currently running Pirelli Diablo SC1 Front & SC2 Rear on my Gen2 RSV. Amazing tyres and have really gave me a sense of belief in the tyre and the brand. 

Now i love my bike and i would have to have an off by just tying to get too much out of the tyre life so my questions are below:

1. SC1 or SC2 choice? Im currently running Sc1 Front & Sc2 Rear. Would you guys go for the SC1 rear?

2. What tread depth do you think is a safe place to be able to push a tyre to?

Sorry, but tyre choice is also about track and track temperature (and how fast you are;P)

As far as I know the Pirellis are very good tyres especially when new, but after a few/several rounds they "get a drop"(?) and loose their top performance. That means they are still very good but the very fast guys have to get a new tyre to be still able to drive very low times (without (much) more danger).


to question second: That's also depending on the tyre (and speed)-> you can still drive the Bridgestone V02 when the markers are gone more ore less a little bit, on Pirelli, Metzeler or Continental there's still around 1-2mm left (I used to change the ContiTrack with a deeper mark than new V02's^^)
In the end you have to be able to sense a little bit when the tyre is done (for you) and/or try that a little bit out. But in the end it's better/cheaper to change earlyer than having a chrash.


p.s. SC1 is the softer one, I think-> more maximum grip but less mileage-> you have to look if you can use the more grip and/or have the spare money for more tyres during the track season...

I think Moezeth probably has some tyres by now.

In the UK people tend to go SC1 front, SC2 rear. The SC2 rears last a fair amount longer than the SC1s for not much loss of grip and handle the cold better I believe. I think there's a fair amount of difference between front and rear compounds despite sharing the same name.

Here's Pirelli's front:

And their rears:



Generally for track tyres you pick the front based on feel and the rear based on pace, temperature and track surface.

There may be a lot more to it but generally in the UK people run the Pirellis from novice through to fast, with or without warmers and on mild to hot days. I hear they don't last half as well in Spain though, probably due to the heat.
