Bridgestone T30 EVO Tire Combo Bridgestone T30 EVO Tire Combo Paul - Evolving with the T30's "I've just replaced a set of Bridgestone T30 tires with a set of T30 EVO tires on my ST1100. I stuck with Bridgestone T30's because I was happy with the T30's. They provided good grip, stability, and still had tread at 9000 miles on my rather heavy sport touring bike. My front tire was down to 1/32", the rear was at 2/32" measured as close to the center of the tread as possible, measured the day I took the bike in to have the new tires mounted. My only complaint with the old T30's was the slight cupping of the front tire. Now the T30 EVO tires take their place on my bike. The first 50-80 miles were a little squirmy feeling. I suspect this was the mold release compound being worn away on my commute to work. The front tire has a lighter feeling than the old T30, but this may only be due to a rounder profile with less cupping. Now that I have 200 miles on the tires they feel every bit as connected to the road as the tires they replaced. For the record, I am not an aggressive rider, and the chicken strips are a bit wide on my bikes. The Harley Clone riders in my motorcycle group think I'm a fast rider, even when I'm taking it easy. Just about any sport rider will out-pace me in the corners. I'm looking forward to seeing how far these new EVO tires last."

Artrax Tire Combo Artrax Tire Combo Jasey - Tn Pleasantly surprised "After countless hours of searching reviews on these tires I finally took the plunge and decided to try out a set. I race harescrambles and was wanting the SX2's however I ACCIDENTALLY ordered the MX Pro's By the time I had realized it my order had been shipped, so I decided to try them anyway. I absolutely love the rear and will be buying another when it's time, however, the front tire is very skinny compared to my MX57's that were the same exact tire size and it made my front end push a lot in my first harescrambles race on them. I still would like to give the SX2 a shot on the front before I rule out Artrax front tires completely."

Looking for a new set of motorcycle tires for your bike?

Well, there's a few things you should consider when perusing motorcycle tires on MotoSport.com:
  • What kind of riding will you be doing? Having a cruise with some buddies? A ride that's on and off road? A spirited ride on the back roads or a full-bore track day with the throttle pinned and the engine screaming?
  • What size wheels do you have? Does your bike have modern 17" wheels or the older 18" style? Maybe you have cruiser sized wheels with a smaller, fatter rear tire and a taller, skinnier front?
  • How long do you want your tires to last? Do you want a no-compromises sticky tire that'll last a summer, or do you want something that'll get some mileage and hold up to multiple seasons?
There's a whole bunch more we could ask, but let's get down to brass tacks here: You need motorcycle tires and we have them.

Sport-Focused motorcycle tires

Let's start off with what most of you are here for: A nice, sticky tire that'll last through a good season of hard riding and maybe a couple track days. Fortunately for you, there's myriad tires that fit the description.

The heavyweights in the tire category are Pirelli motorcycle tires, Dunlop motorcycle tires, Bridgestone motorcycle tires and Michelin motorcycle tires. They all develop their tires through race series like MotoGP and WorldSBK, ranging from something that'll last a couple years to a set that'll last a couple months but will take just about any corner you can throw it's way. Most of their supersport tires are geared for the fat 17" wheels that adorn most modern sport bikes and generally hover between $200-$300 for a set. If you're looking at Pirelli, check out the Pirelli Diablo tires. Dunlop has a huge following devoted to their Dunlop Sportmax Q2, Bridgestone is THE tire in MotoGP with their unstoppable Bridestone BattlAx series and Michelin has their astonishing Michelin Pilot Power line. Also worth a look is the Metzeler Sportec line, of which the M5 Interact actually has a lean-angle indicator to impress your friends with how far you can lean your bike over in the corners. Read the reviews, ask around and make your choice.

Bridging the gap between sport & touring

So, what if you want a motorcycle tire that'll actually last through the summer and possibly even see some rain?

Choices Like the Avon Storm 2 Ultra, the Bridgestone BattlAx BT023 or the Michelin Pilot Activ will fit the bill perfectly. These are long distance tires that bridge the gap between sport and touring. You can get some serious miles out of them and still hit the twisties with confidence. These tires will do both jobs exceedingly well. Additionally, Shinko tires may be your ticket. Priced low and manufactured with high quality standards, they are a great deal.

All these tires come in a wide range of sizes, including the 18 inch wheel size of older bikes.

Adventuring & off-road motorcycle tires

Are you a dual sport rider? The Avon Distanzia or Michelin Anakee 2 tire is just what you are looking for. Built for gripping the road, but with a chunky tread block design to glide over fire roads, charge trails and disperse standing water, they are built to take anything you can throw at them with ease.

Depending on your ratio of road to dirt, look at the tread pattern. Larger tread blocks with more space in between them is better for off-road, easily shedding mud and gripping harder in dirt and gravel but will not last as long on the road. A more street-looking design will still do well off-road, but is mainly geared for well-graded fire roads or the occasional technical dirt track, but will last much longer if it is mostly touring duties you are looking for.
