I am about to get new tires on my 04 xb12s. I am leaning toward a dual compound tire. I typically commute, but most weekends it is a knee dragging wheelie fest. What has worked the best for you guys?

You're going to get a list a mile long on this one. Perrelli or how ever you spell it dioblos work great for me on the rear can't say on the front I have a Dunlop on there now and I don't like it. On a hard corner it tends to skip across the ground a couple of times. But that could be because it's harder to keep the temp up. Cause it's such a hard compound. But that's just my observation and my opinion.

Edit: 36psi front and around 34/35psi rear

Agreed. There's a milllion combinations. And air pressure has a lot to do with air temperature of course
