Great tires for high mileage

I have gone through 3 sets of these on my Suzuki SV650S. I commute 110 miles 5 days/week plus other riding in Southern California. I can usually get a solid years riding out of these, approx 10K-12K miles out of these tires. The front usually lasts me 12K and the rear 10K miles. The only time I don't feel confident on these tires is when I start to wear the tread too thin, otherwise I can ride aggressively or cruise the freeways with no worries. They handle great well into the triple digits as well. I've never had a single problem with these, and I highly recommend them to anyone who needs long lasting tires for commuting but still wants performance. The best of both worlds.

Real good set

I was dying to get rid of the worthless Pilot Road 3's on my ST1100, and these are the first Bridgestones I put on it. Mucho better, fixed the instability on the freeway and turns in much better. Real good tread depth so looks to last well. They do sit a little taller but didn;t affect handling in a bad way. the GT front tire for heavier bikes is a heavier tire but will see how it lasts. Looks good after a couple weeks...

Great Tires

I ride 80+ miles a day to and from work. (sometimes through most of winter thanks to CA weather.) The BT022 changed about a year ago to these new BT023s, and I've found that the new BT023s last substantially longer! Moreover, the handling is still great. They are solid. I recommend them, Thank you MotoSport for getting them to me so quickly.

Will the 180/55 fit my 2007 kawasaki 650r? are the gt tires better?

Your Kawasaki Ninja 650R would require a 160/60x17 rear tire. The 180 rear tire would likely be to wide to fit your 650R. I would not recommend changing from the 160/60x17 to a wider rear tire as it can drastically change the handling characteristics of your bike and also the wider rear tire would be heavier and would put a higher load on your engine when riding.

Tire sizes?
my bike comes with 5.5inch rear wheel. how does a 190/50 fit compared to a 190/55? which is optimal?
MotoSport Staff
1 year ago Location: Portland, OR, USA
The difference between the 190/50 and a 190/55 is going to be the profile height of the tire. While widths stay the same, changing the profile height can change how fast or slow a bike can lean over. Also, when running the higher profile the bike has better contact with the ground when leaned into turns because of it's shape. The difference between the two heights is relatively minimal and takes an experienced rider to really note the changes in feedback from the motorcycle. Rider preference plays a big role in deciding which size is best.
