Hi I would like some advice on what tyres to buy for my 1998 Ducati 916 120/70/17 and 190/50/17 though it will take a 180/55/17 rear. I have had the bike for 5 years and fitted a set of Michelin pilot sport when I got the bike. I have been happy with the handling not having ridden this bike on any other tyres. I have covered aprox 4000 miles ( 2 track days at Knockhill ) Though there is still tread on the front (1/3 more on rear) it picked up a nail so it's time for new tyres. I believe more modern rubber is required. I ride the Ducati mainly at weekends ( with the very occasional track day) mostly in the dry but it is Scotland so wet is par for the course . I would also like to know why I go through a front tyre before the rear , my other 2 bikes BMW R90s and K100 use 2 rears for 1 front. I am a big lad at just over 16st.
