We used Dunlop's D208 GP A tires on both bikes, the rears in the newly available medium-compound JLB. While we had some stability issues with the Dunlops at the 2005 R6's introduction, they worked fine with some tweaking to the stock suspension. A step below the Dunlop's new Sportmax GP tires, the 208 GPs provided excellent and consistent grip over the course of the day. One benefit specific to the rear JLB tire is that it is not much larger in diameter than the stock tire and requires fewer setup changes to accommodate.
