  • Avatar Darcey Do the front and rear tire manufacturer and model have to match?

    I have Bridgestone Battlax BT 020 tires on my motorcycle. The rear tire is okay, but the front tire will need replacing soon. Do I have to use the same Bridgestone Battlax, or could I use another manufacturer? Also does the rear tire last twice as long as the front, or is it vice versa? Thanks.

    • If it were a four wheeled vehicle then different tire models in front verses back wouldnt be a big deal, but being that you only have two wheels, two different treads could affect your traction Your best to stick with the same brand /model And since all bikes are rear wheel drive obviously, the rear wheels are more likely to wear first.

  • Avatar Roy b What are the best tires for motorcycles?

    I have a GSXR 750 and the tires are getting pretty worn. I was wondering in opinion or in fact, who carries the best tires for a sport bike/crotch rocket? Michellin? Firestone? Anything? These tires are the only thing touvhing the ground when im riding, so i want the best i can get.

    • I have tried countless tires over the years and have been happiest with the Michelin Pilot Series. Currently the best is the Power 2CT, get that and you will never regret the choice. Dunlope has a new 2 compound Qualifier tire that a few guys I know are currently running and they are telling me it s right on par with the Powers but I have yet to try them and most likely will not try them because the Powers have been so good.
