Bridgestone Motorcycle Tires

The first Bridgestone tire rolled forward on April 9, 1930. Though at the time there was no Bridgestone name. However, less than a year later founder Shojiro Ishibashi established the Bridgestone Tire Co. The name Bridgestone comes from Ishibashi which means "stone bridge in Japanese."

As with many Japanese manufacturing companies, World War II decimated the industry forcing businesses to make tough decisions. After the war, Bridgestone focused on building motorcycles while receiving most of its income supplying tires to rival motorcycle makers. Bridgestone motorcycles sputtered a short while later.

The outlook brightened in 1951 when Bridgestone became the first company in Japan to sell rayon cord tires. Production facilities saw modernization in that decade and in 1959, Bridgestone sold nylon tires. The company expanded to the United States in 1967 and in 1988 Bridgestone bought Firestone Tire and Rubber Company.

Today it runs neck-and-neck with Michelin as the largest tire manufacturer in the world. Bridgestone's innovative technology provides tires with unsurpassed grip, balance and cornering ability. Their BT106 tire features multi-compound technology sourced from MotoGP and the BT023 series utilizes silica and an RC polymer to enhance performance in wet weather and extend wear life.

    I have a 2 Honda Elite 50cc scooter and i need new tires for it. Problem: the manual says that i need a 2.75-10-4pr tire. Checked. Obsolete tire. So is there a way that i can try and convert the tire size to something a little more usable ? I have tried looking this up, and have decided that hours of staring at things I don t understand was fun, but pointless. I have seen people talking about a Pirelli SL 26 tire with the specs being 90/90J/10, but i m not about to put a tire on my little scooter that may cause it to burst into flames or send me flying into space. (and yes, i know that nothing …

    • NOT an obsolete tire. -- Kenda K313 2.75-10 tires -- Bridgestone 2.75-10 tires -- Kenda K329 2.75-10 tires -- IRC MB-510 2.75-10 tires etc

    I just bought a tank 250cc motorcycle, needs a rear tire. Its got a really weird tire size, 120/90-15 I know certain sizes fit a rim, and this is.the stock tire. Bought the 07 bike with 5k miles for only $400. Has no problems whatsoever! Just wondering if there are other tire sizes that will fit the rim Thank you!!

    • Interesting. According to your motorcycle is suppose to have Front 110/90 - 16" Rear 130/90 - 15" Dunlop says those tires are GT501 Front 110/90-16 :: 2.50" rim width 23.56" diameter 4.59" width D404 Rear 130/90-15 :: 3.00" rim width, 23.95" diameter 5.15" width Measure what is on your tires, see what the rim width is (should be stamped on it.)
