Road Tech 01s great or maybe the new Mich GT 5's
Z8's old tech rubbish on a K but not bad on a RT why they are on new BMW's is maddening
Road Tech are nore tippy response you will not be disappointed...

You could go Diablo Rosso 3 :-)

The Michelin Road 5 GT (as of the 5 Michelin dropped the 'Pilot' ) won't be available until early 2019.

Just did a Track day on the Roadtech 01. They're good all round tyres with enough grip to get your knee down. But they wont last as long as the PR4's. Personally I think I would still take the PR4's next time for me, although I'm hoping these tyres cling on just long enough to reach the release of the Road5 GT's

Thanks for the input.
I figured PR4GT was the way to go for now

Running 01s at the moment & am more than happy with them, have covered around 4000 miles so far two up and fully loaded and have lots of tread left. They perform great wet or dry.
