I know.... another tire question - June 2, 2009, 12:31 PM

But I did search first....

I've got a track day in NJ coming up and I want to try the BT-003 RS's or BT-002RS depending if the 003's come in early enough. My question is, will either one be a good street tire as well?

These are track tires. I personally dont like the idea of running track tires on the street, the tires will never get up to operating temps on the street.

Although, didnt your bike come with Supercorsa's stock?

Read thread, call guy, decide if you want to run 002's or 003's on the street.

FWIW, I've been running race tires on the street since 05 with no problems. I actually prefer them over street tires.

Contrary to what others have said the RS designation stands for Racing/Street, it's a track/street hybrid tire similar to the DCIII's for example. I have a set of BT002 RS's that I ran NJMP thunderbolt with back in April. The ambient temp was around 55 and it was fairly windy so the track was pretty cold most of the day. I had no problems with them even on the cold track (I was running 29F 28R) I run in the Nesba B group. It's a great track day tire.

They have been my street tires since and I have had no problem with them. I rode some back roads last week with them at a pretty brisk pace and they held up just fine, it's a very confident street tire.

Can't beat this price either http://www.cyclesector.com/product_p...t002rs-set.htm

Let me know if you have any more questions about them

all I have to say is watch what advice you take people about tires....

I mean there are SO many different options, NO ONE really has the right answer for YOU...but you.

If you ask 5 people, you'll get five diffrent anwsers type of thing you're asking.


What do you value more? Life or Image?

I ran SOFT front and rear 002's on my 1000 for thousands of miles. Don't listen to the noise. They make WONDERFUL street tires, with hardly any more precaution than you would take to get any other tire warm. They're also decent in the rain, compared to many supersport tires. I bet the 003's are even a little better, but you'll love the 002's on the street. When I buy a new set for the bike I use for street and racetrack, I will be getting some 003's. They don't call 'em Brickstones anymore.
