Will be using stock rear atm.
just looking to reduce pavement slapp'n and get something better for all pavement. 11 mile commute.
It won't be greed which destroys America. It will be envy.
Man who runs in front of motorcycle gets tired. Man who runs behind motorcycle gets exhausted.
If you are never planning to leave the pavement there are a couple options. Bridgestone makes a tw203 and Shinko makes the sr428 and both are a road oriented tread. I personally would also change to a matching rear with either to keep the handling right.
Otherwise if you do plan to go offroad i can personally vouch for the Shinko Sr244. i find it really good on the pavement and good off road too.
Pair of 2006 TW's modded to the hilt and a Ducati Multistrada.
Look at the classified section. I believe a member here has a nice set for sale.
Placerlode has a set for socal local pickup here: https://tw200forum.com/forum/tw200-cl...%25-tread.html I have a set that I'd be willing to sell also, and I will ship. They are a couple years old, but never used. PM me if interested. I have pictures I can upload after I get home tonight.

Torn between hybrid and road...
Looking to commute as many days a year as possible...
But also wanting to take 2/3/4 trips a summer into backcountry.
You could acquire a spare wheel set with dirt tires and switch them out for the dirt trips. Best of both worlds.
You could also use different sprockets between dirt and road.

Shinko SR428 Dual Sport Tires are good replacements for the Bridgestones. I have them on my bike and have used them off road before. They are squirmy as hell in pea gravel, but on plain dirt they handle surprisingly well.
I have the Tw203 and 204 on mine. Great for the streets. The back is getting slick. I'll have to do some burnouts and finish them off.
