I am looking for a darkside tire for my V2K and I am looking at the Sumitomo 225/60-16 and the GY triple tread.

Anyone have experience with these - especially the Sumitomo ?

I researched those for my SLK. Summer tires, the reviews where good but said they sucked in wet conditions. I'm not for car tires on bikes but if you go for it have that in mind.

This was the tire I installed a year ago and have not had a problem with performance in any condition. It did completely wear away the inside fender sleeve on both edges though. It took a little while to get used to the ride and I still notice it a little when I come to uneven road conditions that the tire tilts as it tries to ride up the side on an edge. By the look of the wear on the Tire I should get many years of riding from the it. Each to his own and so far I will continue my ride on the dark side.
