So I woke up to a nice sized nail lodged in the rear tire of my Evo. I guess patching is out of the question so now i need a new rear tire. What are my options? Dealer wants $205 for a new on. Im thinking I can get a set for a couple bucks more (Q3s, S20s,PP3s).

I highly recommend anything from the Michelin Power line. I've run em all and always seem to come back to the 2CT.

Can I put a different Model on the rear? Or do I have to match it up with the rear? I see a few diffrent Pierrlis on sale for just the rears.

I really like the q3 for a street bike or novice/ intermediate track day guy. But if it's a hwy commuter mostly I'd get something to get better mileage PP2/3. I think you'll be happiest buying a tire for the right application instead of the stickiest street tire available. All the new ones are pretty dang good. Just my personal opinion.

I put the Michelin Pilot Power 3's on my 848 when I punctured a tire. I don't love them. As soon as I can justify it to myself, I'm going back to Supercorsas. I miss how sticky they were. The PP3's are way better in the wet, but I'd still rather have the Supercorsas and just chill when I get caught in the rain.

I haven't spent more than a few hundred miles on my PP3s but my traction control light doesn't seem to come one like it did with the supercorsa tires it came with. I did a track day on them and a little street time but I really like these. The SC seem to be fine when new but as soon as they started wearing they were gone. I got about 3k out the stock tires.

S20 if you do a lot of street ridding they will last a lot. if you like spending money every 3000-4000 Mi or you do track then go to the other brands.
My rear tire lasted close to 7500 Mi. I just ordered my 2nd rear.
It's a great tire for street, canyon ridding & Wet.
Excellent all around.
