I can only think it is down to the different compound in the centre of the tyre. I run 36/42 and my suspension is fine.

Anybody else had any problems with these tyres? Can’t wait to take them off.
Interesting, my Pirelli T2 are the best tyres i have ever fitted? So much so i will fit them again? Wonder if it is do with weight of the rider?
Brilliant in the rain and have no problems with harsh ride? Same 36/42.
Are your wheels balanced? Mine are.
