Default Darkside tire recomendations

I'm getting ready to install my 3rd CT. My first was 175/60/16 Dunlop runflat Winter Sport and the 2nd was 195/55/16 Michelin Primacy Alpin.

I liked the Dunlap much better but it looks like neither are available any longer.

I've been searching for a while now and I'm not seeing any repeated recommendations. I think the smaller tire worked better and the bike sat on the kick stand better. The 195 seems to really make the bike lean on the stand.

So what's the hot setup right now?
Help please,
Bob

I just replaced my Yoko Envigor , got 16,000 miles out of it. I also wanted to try the new Dunlap E4 so I had them put on yesterday, only time will tell if they are any good.

I use dunlop peraza 195/65/18 got 22K out of last one. According to a tracker app I was 2 miles a hour slower then what speedo said.
If your on FB look up Steve Rolland and send him a message. He just put a new CT on his bike and I don't remember what it was. He is the best for CT information

Anyone have pictures of worn darkside tires before removing them from the rim?

Really curious to see the wear pattern on the worn tire before making this change.

Thanks

guess you didn't look at my tire above. I run 40psi and check it once a month.
It still on rim with air in it

Sorry I thought that was a new tire you just put on. That doesn't look worn down at all to replace.
