Had them on my last set of wheels, they were alright for the first few mill but after a while became unpredictable in damp conditions, they were ok in the dry and not bad in the wet but anything in between was a gamble.
Wouldn't recomend them to be honest mate.

The best budget tyre at the moment Is the kumho KU31 but for your size they are still around £130 each rather than £80 for the nankang NS-2's

Cheers mate, been looking at the Maxxis MAZ1, I can get these for £130 a corner.

Thought the nankang looked to good to be true.

Totally agree. I ran them on my first Classic for 2 years and had the same experiences.

i had nankangs on mine but i quickly changed them for the exact reasons mentioned. very unpredictable in moist/damp conditions. i went for yoko parada spec-2's. couldnt fault them to be honest. ive found that any tyres i ran on the type-r where more or less obscelete in wet conditions. them yokos where hellish in the dry though :-)

I would, but I go through that many tyres and want something that's decent and not going cost a fortune, michelin are £230 a corner for 245/35/19, the others I am looking at are half that.
