I agree with MBK , the PR3's are great and worth the little extra.

When I got my biffer it had a BT 21 on the front and a BT23 on the rear. Never felt fully confident especially with the front end. Earlier this year I changed both for PR 3's ( £245 ish a pair fitted). What a difference the bike corners so much better the feel is better and increases your confidence.

I can't comment on the PR 2's but they have been superseded by the 3's so why buy old technology.

+1 for your choice of tyre but............If your budget can stand it go for the newer PR3, personally I think they are the "dogs  :172: bits". 

PR2s are good but PR3s, in the wet, are soooooo much better...............IMHO

I agree PR3s are the way to go as they are so good if it's wet.

Whatever you go for, it will improve your confidence and stop you consciously thinking about your riding. Once you start thinking about things, it stops you from relaxing and that affects your riding.

The answer is obvious Lew, play the safety card.  :164:

Whilst she's sat in her nice shiney new car remind her of the tyres and tell her that you want PR 3's. They're not the most expensive but are definitely  the  safest tyres for your bike.........and she wouldn't want anything to happen to such a generous hubby on his bike, now would she. 

Good luck
