Title: DS - DSR tires What have you tried?
Post by: 42Cliffside on January 09, 2018, 01:39:44 PM
I just got a pair of Pirelli Scorpion Trail II tires hoping to improve the cold wet traction, they are rated pretty high for wet traction and I can't wait to get 'em mounted since it rains nearly every day in the winter here.
They were relatively affordable from revzilla. The stock ones are def slipping on these cold wet streets and tar lines...

Anyone tried these?

I put a pair of Metzeler Tourance Next tires on my DSR late last summer and the tread pattern looks similar.  Much quieter ride and very solid handling both dry and wet.  I look forward to hearing how yours work out.

I also put Metzler Tourance tyres on a year ago. Haven't looked back. Transformed the handling, massive increase in grip in all conditions. Very happy with them indeed!

That's on a 2014 DS by the way. The stock tyres were a make called Kendra. Absolutely rubbish with the benefit of hindsight!

I'm also riding with Metzler Tourance Next tires on my DSR. I changed the rear at 13000 miles and the front at 19000(!) miles.

At 26000 miles on the odometer now, they're holding up quite well and I prefer the handling to the OEM tires, especially in the wet.
