[I'm in the process of buying an 08 wing with 5500 miles and original tires, so I want the best tire. What is your recommendations?

I have had the Hoops (OEM), Diablo's, and Metzlers and liked the Metzlers and Diablo's much better than the Hoops. They seem stickier and smoother than the Hoops and also took the curves better than the Hoops. But some here like the Hoops just because that is what came as the OEM. I got about 9,000 for the Diablo's and Metzler's and 10,000 with the Hoops. But if I still had my SWing I would get either of the 2 I mentioned. But this is just my opinion though.

My SWing came with IRC's. Personally I have been happy with them; decent ride and great mileage, on my second set.

While there is no "best" as the bike remains a scooter----I have had good luck with Michelin Power Pure SC in proper size on rear----bought 3, 2 for SilverWing and one for Burgman 400---work fine.

Return from Alaska rear had over 10,000 miles on it and worked until I got home. Dennis Kirk I paid in the area of $40 each.....I do own tire work, they go on easy, Balance well with "Ride On"

My left over 2013 SilverWing now has 22,000 miles with OEM front, planning at 25,000 or so replace with Michelin SC, fresh Michlin SC on Rear is working fine--- set at Honda recommended PSI

Tires and oil are two topics that stir up a lot of dust ( or should I say debate ). I have Metzlers on mine and I'm quite happy. I mean I enjoy the ride, and have no concerns, yet. I can't say I notice a difference in the handling much ( not looking for any, and not noticing anything untoward) . I chose the Metzlers based on price, availability, and the reviews I read here and on other sites. Based on my experience I'd say they are good tires.

This will be my first winter in over 25 years without a 4 wheel drive, so I have had mud & snow rated tyres fitted, http://moto.michelin.co.uk/tyres/michelin-city-grip-winter .. wet road markings & wet manhole covers/gratings are now hardly noticeable from the tarmac around them, the Viper Strykes that came off had almost no traction on the same surfaces.

Metzler's get my vote.
