Interesting combinations here. I have run wide michelin pilots. Good grip. Wear like erasers!
Toyo Proxes, guiet good wear, good grip.
P-0's good lateral grip good wear, quiet. Terrible at the dragstrip.
I have the opposite experiance with the 9000's. Excellant handling dry or rain, quiet, excellent at the dragstrip. Pretty good wear.
These were 285-40-18's as I remember. Narrower tires perform differently than the fat boys. IMO..
