Round black tubeless probably best :)

Depends on type of riding, if it's mainly tarmac riding the there seems to be a few good choices, Michelin PR 4/5 are quite liked, I have 4's and seem fine. Avon do a decent tyre.

Off road bias - no idea, some one will be a long soon

Capitals indicate shouting by the way.

I would with Michelin PR4s or Road5s for road use .

As MatBin says using entirely upper case is considered to be shouting. Anyway welcome to forum I’m sure that you will find plenty of good information on here on motorcycling and many other subjects. Plenty of humour as well.

Avon storm xm work well for me definitely quieter and definitely I get a lot more miles from them as regards performance I'm not good a enough rider to notice the difference.

Continental road attack 11 currently fitted really like em - if new to your  nc try experimenting with tyre pressure  if you are riding  solo - my opinion  only although  quite a few on here agree  - try 38psi in the rear back upto 43 when pillion  keep front  at 36 std

Michelin pilot roads 5 very good but expensive , got a pair of Avon Storm 3d XM and are really good so far and a lot cheaper than the Michelins

Being pedantic and to avoid confusion they are Road 5s the word pilot having been dropped.

Second here for contis. I don't have anything to compare against other than the square mitcht that came with it but I would definitely say they're confidence inspiring...far better than what was on

As I have a nano part of the pedant that is Rocker, I should, with respect, correct Mr shouty Bikerjon and the plural of tyre is TIRES!

Had budget tyres , conti motion and they were all right but have run on Michelin’s ever since swopping  them out and these are better for cold and wet starts to the day .

I'm a BIG fan of Pirelli Scorpian 2

I ride all year in all weathers - this past year I tried Michelin Road 5, they are good and they last longer than Pirelli.

However, recent persistent poor weather has me changing back to Pirelli - a lot more secure especially in crap low temp weather

On my fourth set of Metzeler RoadTEC Z8 front and rear.

Cannot really fault them, get around 8K on the rear and at least 12K on the front.

Good grip and they feel planted in all weather.

But........ I really must try something different next time as I do not know what I may be missing.
