Well the stamp on the tires I ordered and received made them one year old, not 10+, I would have refused fitting them and demanded my money back. I lived at the time in a small village in Thailand and the local shop owner who spoke a bit of English couldn't get anything better. I thought they looked okay for the price and agreed to order them after googling and reading lots of good comments about them. But I agree that they offered no grip and didn't wear out, they looked like new after 10K km. Won't buy them again!
Which tires would you recommend for the CBR250?
jsonder said it so well
Arrowstacks are the reason every awesome Aussie teenage rider on their first bike , ('grey' Imported cbr250rr and 400's etc) became not so awesome at the first corner.
those that didn't change them still have them 10 yrs later as the never wear out.
They are like Shinko's... but last longer and even worse for grip.
Motorcycling Australia (in their stupidity) made them the 'control tyre' for a new production racing class in 2012 and riders dropped like bowling pins.. riders protested and thankfully we run Diablo rossos now.
You sound like you want a half decent but long wearing tyre so try IRC roadwinners or Pirelli Sport Demon, or Bridgestone BT045.
