I've run these Bridgestone Spitfires on my good ol' 76 Moto Guzzi 850 T3 for many years now. The tires are a natural choice for the 1977 850 T3 FB I just picked up. I bought the Spitfires here at Motosport as a "tire combo" and saved big bucks, free shipping, and arrived in 2 days.

I've run Bridgestone Spitfire tires on my good ol' '76 Moto Guzzi for a long time now. Why? They last a long time, typically well past 10K. The Guzzi handles well with them. There are no chicken stripes on my tires. Solid, predictable traction right out to the edge. Who needs expensive radials? And the Spitfires are very reasonably priced. I got a killer price here at MotoSport, free shipping, delivered in two days!
These Spitfire tires work well with the suspension and steering geometry on my 1983 BMR R100. Good dry and wet traction. This replaced a set of S11/S12 tires I had about 12,000 miles on. Plenty of tread left on the front, but both tires felt as if they were getting to the use-by date.
I looked around town for a good tire replacement for my 2000 Kawasaki W650, all local shops didn’t have in stock and wanted to charge me an up charge to order. I found this one on Motosport, great price and free shipping!
These Spitfires are perfect on my '75 Guzzi!
My recent tire purchase was very satisfactory. Motosport shipped quickly and the tire was of current manfacture date and in excellent condition. I would definitely recommend Motosport as a parts source.
Front tire for 79 CBX. Seems to work well, however very few miles on it yet. Don't know about wear. Bike handles fine. Fits under fender well, which can be an issue on this bike.
great tires, stick to the road

Question answered by MichaelUser's contributor status: Top 10Question answered 1 year 11 months agoAnswer: A: There is no direct difference in quality, both tires are made for a more classic bike, however, it looks as though the SE11's may be for a tube required rim.

Question answered by MotoSportExpertUser's contributor status: Top 10Question answered Over 4 years agoAnswer: A: We have the stock tire sizes listed for most all models on our website. Please be sure that you have the proper machine in your “shopping for” selection. We do NOT have a listing of alternative sizes available for your machine. We suggest staying with the stock sizing as changing the size can cause issues with handling, reliability, rubbing and could have adverse effects on performance.

Question:Q: Is it possible to put a 18' tire on a 19' rim ?Question asked Over 5 years agoI would like to buy a 120/90-18 tire but the rim of my motorcycle is for 19' tires.
Question answered by MotoSportExpertUser's contributor status: Expert MotoSport StaffQuestion answered Over 5 years agoAnswer: A: No, that would be your rim diameter. The 18" will be too small to fit on the 19" rim.

Question:Q: How wide of a tire will fit on the rear 15" wheel of a 1997 suzuki marauder with a stock swingarm?Question asked Over 6 years ago
Question answered by MotoSportExpertUser's contributor status: MotoSport StaffQuestion answered Over 6 years agoAnswer: A: It is not recommended to install wider tires on stock width wheels as the tire selected for the bike fits the wheel properly. Not only can going to a wider make the tire/wheel not fit the bike, it can cause adverse handling effects and and cause premature tire wear.
