My dealer had 07's on the showroom floor with goodyears and some with dunlops. I can't remember which bike came with what though. I am not sure of the "quality" of each brand of tire...they gotta be better than the carliles though.

Goodyear Rawhide RS on my '07 500M. Look like a more aggressive tire than the Carlisle Badlands on my '06 500. I'm no expert on tires but, I don't have a problem with the Carlisles. A lot of the bad news about them was that they leaked a lot. Mine haven't leaked a bit in over six months.

What models are coming with the new Dunlop tires that look like "mini Mudlites"?[/b]
the newer 07's are coming with the dunlop tires that are amazing tires. The older build dates from early 07, such as mine sadly, came with the goodyears. The dunlops are lighter by a good margin over other tires and also are said to offer excellent mud traction as well as being a great all around tire. I cant knock my goodyears, they have been great at shrugging off sidewall damage and have held air really well, even with a half assed plug job on the back tire. They get decent bike but need a decent amount of wheel speed to clear out in thicker mud
