At the end of last season I bought a set of M1's for
my bike - haven't mounted them yet (figured I'd wait
till late spring) - but then I came across these badboys:

Pirelli diablo Corsa III's

The Corsa III designation, while applied to both the front and rear tires, pertains mainly to the rear tire and its three zones - center, left edge, and right edge, respectively. In the center portion, you'll find the same compound as the popular Diablo Corsa, while the edges have a "new, softer" compound. The rear tire also benefits from Pirelli's MIRS (Modular Integrated Robotized System) construction method. Construction is fully automated, with no human contact at any point of production. Jointless and uniform material distribution is claimed to produce a tire with better damping capabilities and sidewall stiffness.
Now this is what really made my toes curl:

Speaking of mounting the tires, the rear tire's soft edges were so flexible that the tire practically folded in on itself while I pushed the first side onto the rim, despite using tire mounting lube. As for balancing weight, the rear tire required no more or less than any other tire I've installed.


Any of you running Diablo Corsa's?

what's your overall opinion?

the guy at my work runs diablos and says he loves em so far. the corsa is supposed to be a stickier compound and as catman said, will instill more confidence in your riding.

heard good things but they wont last as long cuz of the softer and stickier compound.

only a concern if your stretching to pay for your tires. otherwise, do it to it!

Tire life is very low on my priority list,
I expect to go thru 1-2 sets per season.

I'm only looking for the best performance
that I can get my grubby little paws on.

but it's like I've got M/C Tire ADD syndrome or sumpin.

i get one set, then I see another that
I want more cuz I'm thinkin it's better.

GAHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

Tire life is pretty important to me since I only have my bike to drive.
Corsa III's center have really good life. I'm 4000 miles in and the edges are still worn more. And I live in Florida

:metal:


if you have tire add, you should just buy the ones you want and stack em up. then you'll ride your tires like you want to get rid of em. then you can tell all of us the differences in the dif . tires!

sounds good. tire review specialist miki!


thats pretty suprising haelo that the middle is better than the edge after that many (mostly straight) miles.

you doing lots of cirle burnouts or something?? :rock:

I like to get fresh tires when I buy them. My bike shop orders them and says FRESH SHIT OR WE BEAT YOU DOWN
And you can tell the difference when you take a fresh set out on the track. They warm up a helluva lot faster.

Currently running BT-012r's

The problem I have with them, I've got to stay on it (CONSTANTLY) in order for them to stay warm - they chill quickly, then my ass end gets all squirrely.

BUT on the upside - during the summer months up here, they stick to the extreme, have never dragged peg as much with any other tire.
