I'll skip the explanation as to why but I am currently running the Pirellis and I have a new set of R10s ready to go. As I'm sure most of ya'll know I am not really at a pace to need slicks but I do really like the Pirellis, BUT i also liked the Bridgestones too. Now my real question is about the difference between the the different profiles these tires have, as the R10 are more V-shaped and the Pirellis more rounded. I have noticed my my bike wants to run wide midcorner and when rolling on throttle. My question is: does the more round profile of the Pirellis have anything to do with this? I am thinking b/c the R10s are steeper on the side angle of the tire and that put more contact are down when leaned over?? Or is it simply a need to adjust the suspension? I was planning on raising the rear a bit on my next time out.
