Track day SLICK!

"Also, the Metzeler Racetec TD features a symmetric rear construction, which means that the rear tire can be flipped and used “backwards” for when at tracks that have especially high-wear on one side of the tire, thus adding more life to the tire’s use."

Bottoms Up!

FWIW, I'd take whichever you can find cheaper, this or the Supercorsa TD. I race my R3 on the TD's and have no problem running half a season on a rear and 3/4 on the front. I'll probably run them on the 890 too since they're street legal. I ran them on my R6 and 701 sumo as well - fantastic tires! Good wear for a high quality TD tire, reasonably priced (especially if you buy at the track - i get them for 300/set), and they give you tons of feedback before they full slip.

Actually, thinking about it... I might pick up a set of these just to see how their profile feels
