Bridgestone Battlax BT-016 Pro Rear Tires 4.8 5 25 25
Looks good. Feels Great. Tire wore in quickly and evenly. I bought the front and rear and am happy with the ride. Great street tire with track performance. This will probably be my next set of tires. July 13, 2015
A great street tire for the 99% For the money, this is my favorite street bike tire, hands-down. I've run countless other tires, and none has offered the confidence and communication of this tire. Yes, there are grippier tires out there, to be sure, but none offer up the assurance that these tires do. After ~400 miles, you will be riding faster through the same turn than you were on your last tires, comforted by the knowledge that this tire will keep on doing exactly what you want it to do. My first set was SHOT at 5,500 miles, and was still doing great in the dry, and even in the damp, and I wouldn't have known to swap them out if I wasn't diligent about pre-ride inspections. I've had them on several supersports now, and they will probably be the only tires I run from here on out! June 6, 2015
Tons of grip! This tire just begs you to lean more and go faster on the corner. My only grip is the trade-off: This tire wears out fast! But, that's just the nature of a softer, good-gripping road tire. Overall, this product is just excellent for the purpose it is meant to do. I love it! May 12, 2015
Always been a great tire I have always liked this tire. Warms up quick and gives me confidence in the canyons. At some point I will upgrade, but for now, on a budget, I will stick with these. March 2, 2015
First bike..first tires 9k plus. I bought my '13 750 new and this was the stock tire. I started riding in August 2013 and the past 4 months i've been taking it easier because a few friends told me i would need tires soon. I picked my bike from the shop 4 days ago i told them as i was about to ride off "I know i'm going to need tires pretty soon" They looked and agreed "Yeah, you're due" I have over 9k on these tires currently.The past few times i've riden, i have noticed it slipping when trying to brake at lights from 45-50mph speeds. I can see i'm due because i'm down to my wear indicators now. I've never done burn outs, never taken it on the track and i typically keep it under 90 when commuting to and from work or the beach. I do love riding in the rain. I've been told i get pretty low in turns and ramps from some guys i've riden with. I'm in a part of VA where the roads and interstates pretty much SUCK so i think i've done well with getting the absolute most out of these tires. Overall, i think I am more of a point A to point B rider…mostly. February 28, 2015
Great brand, great tire Love the brand and these is my second time buying the tire. Commute over 75 miles a day. It's dependable. August 18, 2014
Very Pleased I put these in my CB1000R and took them to the Ozarks expecting 80-90 degree weather in May. We got 45-75 wet weather. The tires held the lines great I was very happy with the way they performed in both dry and wet weather. I don't expect as much mileage out of them as a sport touring tire but I can accept that. July 18, 2014
Great tire for high grip levels and daily road use Ive got a 03 sv1000 with bt016 pro front and rear. With the weight of this bike (450 ish) and the high torque it delivers these tires handle it with no problem. Warm up times are great, almost non existent. Ive put 5,500 miles on them and im about due for rear replacement, front still is doing well. They have great turn in bite and great mid corner control. Really nice level of feedback, quite confidence inspiring. Ill be getting another set in the near future. June 2, 2014

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Angelo K: This tire has the perfect balance between grip and longevity! I get great grip while getting 5K out of the rear tire and 8-9K out of the front tire. You cannot get better mileage and grip from any other tire! It is also a very well priced tire! All pros, no cons. May 11, 2015
Francis R: It is an OEM tire size/brand for the 2014 BMW s1000RR. It is a proven product for that motorcycle. I'm satisfied with its looks, and its performance. It is also hard to fault it for its value and purpose. Excellent choice not only for me, but for the other bikers who attested to the tires performance and bang-for-the-buck, on online reviews and even here on Revzilla. Apr 20, 2015

Ken S: I presume you are asking about the 73W part of the tire size. This refers to load rating and speed rating. 73W means the tire is rated to 805 lbs and 168 MPH. Sep 29, 2013
