It's 2022. What are currently the best tires for an RC390?

Hi all. Of course, a topic that is quite debated over and over, but wanted to ask it through the current offerings of 2022 tires (or older?). What are peoples choices for 1/2 track 1/2 road use? Im on Metzler M7 RR tires, and want to try a change.
Thanks.

I found the Metzler m9 are quite satisfactory for the rain (street and track). Good grip all around. I will be trying the Q3+ when these wear out to see which I like best.

Do you think the profile would be quite different? On my bigger bike, I went from Supercorsa's to Q4 and hated the feeling so much. Bike was no where near as stable in turns. Switched right back. For my RC390, was hoping to try the new diablo rosso tires.

Well, so far I went straight from the M5s that came on it, to the M9s.
I have the M9s currently on my 790. I used the Michelin 2CTs till they wore out. The M9s are better in the rain. I found both decent on the track.
I guess I am upper intermediate, as far as skill goes, on our track here. I have taken both bikes to the track for track days.

I'll need to try them, but I've been having good luck on my Bridgestone S22s. Of course, this was on my MT-10. I JUST made it to intermediate with N2 over the summer. Still novice with STT. The tires have done me well, and gonna try them on my 390 when it's back together.

Have a friend who has ridden only S22s on his previous bike. He just bought a Street Triple with Supercorsa SPs, and he says he's switching back to S22s after these wear out. Rides street and 3/4 times a year track and swears by them.
