Hello All! I am new to the SCR950 family, I picked mine up a couple weeks ago with the original tires and just can't stand them. I don't plan to spend anytime on the dirt (I live in California's Bay Area) and so after reading other posts on this forum I had thought about getting the Michelin Pilot Activ's. I called into my local shop to order a pair and they told me the Pilot Activ's are being discontinued and replaced with the Road Classic's. I wanted to check in with anyone to see if they have first hand experience with these or perhaps a friend has tried them out, if not I'll just have to report back how they handle.

I put Michelin anakee 3 on my scr and absolutely love them . They still slightly have the look but are definitely more street.

WELCOME! I too switched over to a set of street tires. Guess what? There's really not a noticeable difference on gravel roads. I went with the Michelin Commander lls in the widest size available while keeping the stock height of the tires. I also went with radials front AND rear. No noticeable difference in handling or wear. Good luck! Jevers

Hi,
I don't know if they're available in the US but I replaced the originals (once I realised they were never going to wear out) with Metzler Tourance which cut vibration and noise by around 50%.
The front is a bit narrower which makes turning easier but can feel like it's going to 'drop' into corners. Once aware of this it's no problem.
Best of luck with your quest.
