"Pilot Road" tyres

  1. search is not working at all for me, so here goes...

    The rear tyre of the Hyo has developed a couple of cracks accross the thread. They are not overly deap, but still concerning. So anyway, it could be the enticing i need to get some new rubber as the OE ones are average at best.

    I'm wondering if i really need something like the Pilto Powers because lets face it the vast majority of my riding is commuting. But i would still like to be able to have a bit of fun on teh weekends. So i was considering the Pilot Road's. Anyone know about these?

    I am totally open to other suggestions. Some on another forum have suggested a dual compound tyre and that does make a lot of sence but i dont know anything about them. What are they? are they worth it? and how do they compare with the Powers/Roads?
