Its a difficult poll for most to answer since few of us have sampled all the choices. I won't buy the current Dunlop OE models due to the poor wet traction I experienced on my son's bike. I had the older B-stone front and current B-stone rear and was disappointed at poor life of rear. I have the Avons with the 70series rear now and have thoroughly enjoy them, but shudder at the reputation they have for failures with the GL1800 rear tire. The Avons have superior traction to other two brands I have ridden. I have not considered Metzlers due to the wobbles with which they are associated. The new Dunnies may be teh great hope, but who knows at this point. If I had to order today, it would be another set of Avons with the 70 series rear. Second choice would be B-stones knowing that they will only go 7 to 8 thousand miles.
