tire profile comparison

940 Views 9 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  cling
Hey guys. I'm looking for the chart that shows the profiles (how pointy or round the tire is) of different tires. I think I saw it in a magazine tire review, but I can't remember, and I can't find it. Basically, I'm just looking for a profile comparison between the Qualifiers, Pilot Powers, Metzlers, and the stock D208s... please don't respond with "pilot powers rule" or things of that nature. Thanks a lot guys.

Well from what I know the PP's will be the most triangled or taller profile tire. The Q's are a mix of the 208 rear profile with a race profile on the front which is a slightly taller profile then the standard Dunlops. Metzlers I have no experience with.

So with that, the Dunlops will give you a progessive linear turn-in for the corners while the PP's will tend to "fall" in much faster because of the taller profile.

FWIW, I'm running the Q's.
