    Q3+ vs. Michelin Power RS

    anyone ran both and can give me a comparison?

    ill be buying a set in spring. ive been running the q3. havent tried the q3+ yet, but was considering the power rs's. thought id ask about them first.

    hows the mileage, profile etc??

    I absolutely love the Q3 but if you're not doing track days the current best street Super Sport tire out right now is the S21 before mileage rain and just rideability at a normal sport pace

    A good friend of mine has tried both the tires you are considering and he preferred the Q3 Plus for it's better feel and feedback. I think the mileage was about the same. You can not go wrong with either tire as they will both perform very well.


    I tried a set of the Pirelli Rosso Corsa II this year, ( not to be confused with the Pirelli Rosso ) and was very impressed!! Probably the best performing tire I have ever run on the street. Fast turn in and ridiculous grip. They inspire a lot of confidence. I have only put about 700 miles on them and my one concern is wear......they are pretty soft. And they cost about 50 buck more a set than the Q3 Plus which all things considered is really hard to beat if you want a good performance tire for the street.

    I haven't ridden on the Power RS. I just switched from PP3's to q3/q3+/q4 and I'm never going back to Michelin. Dunlop has significantly boosted my confidence and enjoyment of the sport.

    Depends on your riding style. I got 3000 out of my Q3's, haven't really done much with the Q3+ yet.

    Iíve had the Q3 (not plus) and currently have power RS. I donít have any complaints about either tire. Maybe because Iím not the fastest guy out there

    Both tires felt great on the track and the street. The Q3 had lots of center tread left , but after 2 track days was getting close to the wear bar on the sides. The RSís still got plenty for another track day at least after one day at NCM

    Iíve had three sets of Q3+ís and one set of the Michelin power pilots,
    I have noticed better wear (life) with the Michelin but I have never slipped on my Q3+.
    So I currently have a set of Q3+ís on my bike one my michlines are holding basketballs.

    U can have my michliníd if u want them. They probably have 80% life left.
    I .org orgionally switched to avoid any issues with the California super bike school. But the school ismt a track day & in hindsight I didnít need to spend $500. After installation.
    120/70 and 190/55. I think 17.
