Help!!

I have just bought my zx6r and it has metzler k2's fitted. I like them but have noticed if your on a straight for a while and enter a corner the rear seems to slide a little. I have also heard they are not good in the cold/damp/wet!

Looking at buying a set of pilot 2ct's as I have heard good things about them but I was wondering what everyone's opinion is?

I don't go on the track and generally only use my bike on nice hot days. Mainly B roads and I like to press on at times!! I want a tyre that will still work in the wet as I have been caught out a few times.

Used to have battle axe bt014's on my j1. I like them but found after a summer on them they went a bit hard and I lost the feel on the corners.

Any advice appreciated. :)

Q 3 Dunlops are the cheapest, best tire on the road today in my opinion. Supposed to be great in the wet too. I dont ride in the wet but I have read some reviews that make that claim. I have burned through 4 sets in the canyons and on the track. These tires are awesome. Hard to beat. Buy some and thank me later. I dont work for Dunlop. I buy my tires.....

Thanks, I don't intend to ride in the wet but I have been caught out far from home a few time. The k2's have zero tread on the outside and I know they will not handle well. Never heard much about the dunlops but everyone seems to be raving about the 2ct's. Difficult decision as all reviews I find mention road and track.
