So I have noticed that my Metzler me888 150/80r17 is starting to wear strangely (cupping on one side on the tire) and is causing some vibrations in my front end. Decided to swap the tire out for a different manufacturer but there aren't exactly a ton of options for the 150/80r17. Is there a decent tire that someone has any recommendations for?

I currently have a Shinko on my R3 and about to replace it with another one. Of all the tires I tried on my Roadster I preferred the Dunlop Elite.
@1olbull had a list of options here...

You can also run a 140 tyer which gives you better handling in the corners.
