    Found this, gives a good insight, it is a Bridgestone related video but the principle applies to any brand really:

    Cast wheels come with 190 tyres.
    Forged Rims / Carbon's come with 200's.

    The radius/profile is actually the important things for the TC. The height of the tyre for a given angle. With an unlocked ECU and an RCK3 you can set the radius to optimise the TC.

    Recently changed from K3's to M9's. Would say the M9's are more balanced on street, where the K3's had a more agressive turn in. Personally I prefer the M9's on the street, but would choose K3's if it was track only or mainly a track bike.

    I'm very interested to hear what you think is so bad about the K3's and what tyre you prefer??

    I have recently changed from supercorsa to DRC2 and I found that under heavy braking the front tyres seem to compress too much being a little unstable, now is that the tyre or suspension I am not sure. As for rear no issue excellent grip. Just one other thing the tyres had done only about 50 miles before used on the track.

    Wrong suspension setup or geometry unfortunately.

    The golden rule of motorbike suspension - tyre is never part of it.
