bridgestones? - April 29, 2009, 02:12 PM

who out there likes bridgestones? let me know what you like about them. I usually run michelines, but with all this hype about bridgestones from gp last year makes me want to try them out. that and i can get a set of bt-016's to my door for $250 and bt-002's to my door for around $290

I have the BT016's....first time running a street tire since pre 2004. This is the first Stone ive ever run also...only ran Pirellis in the past. I am loving them since they are broken in.

dual compound fronts, tripple compound rears...= love.
I put them thru the test last weekend on the PA ride.
They are a safe bet 4 sure...

The BT-003's are Bridgestone's newest. The 002's are excellent. I raced on them, and even took 4th place in the pouring rain against competitors who were on rain tires at VIR. Your delivered price is fine. If you're using them on the street, remember to treat them like race tires. They warm quickly, but not instant grip like a street tire, so be careful.

By the way, there's no relevant correlation to be made between Moto GP Bridgestones and the tires you can buy. So, try the 002's, and let your decision be based on experience instead of hype. Me thinks you'll love 'em. I run them year 'round on my streetbike and use them at the track as well.

+1

granted I don't ride as hard as many nor have I hit the track, and having this tire be the first thing I used stepping away from the Pirellis - these are a safe bet as he stated

and I also agree on the price...def get alotta bang for alittle buck with these.
