Bridgestone Battlax BT-016 Rear Tire 4.9 5 16 16
Great Quality and Price Read about it in reviews and reviews described it exactly as I read, great quality and great price! February 3, 2014
Good feel, long life My new Zx-10R came fitted with these tires and I wasn't expecting much. But after A couple thousand miles of getting used to the bike, I came to see that these are great tires. They allow my to lean the bike over easily and give my Kawi a super fickable feel. They stick well even in cool weather and are rock solid on the highway at high speeds. Best of all I have 6000 miles on them and I just started looking to replace them with another set. February 1, 2014
Great Tire Revzilla delivers again! It's a great tire. I had it professionally installed and I can tell it's got great grip on the roads in San Diego. December 23, 2013
Rain storm owned / Overall quality Car was in the shop, stressed with life, out of sick/vacation days and a torrential rain storm one fall morning. No choice but to fire up my recently purchased used bike with around 35-40% tread life left on these BT-016's. I didn't care about dying this morning and I rode hard and fast in the nastiest hardest rain in a while around these parts. On my 40 minute commute I didn't lose traction once at speeds up to 80-85 hitting water patches and taking a long curving "C" off ramp at an unsafe speed. I got to the office drenched from head to toe (did pack a change of clothes) and thought to myself that was one of the stupidest things I've ever done. These tires probably saved my life. Plus the good Lord. November 2, 2013
long time user of the battlax bt016 I have been using these tire for about 3 years now and I do so pretty quick touring we have some great back roads in Australia that test the rider and his tyres to the max with tight cornering and fast straights I am on my third set of bridgestone battlax bt 016 and I am extatic with their performance ,wear life ,and price I do a lot of miles and the grip these tires give in all conditions is amazing I ride a GSF 1250S Suzuki Bandit which is a relatively heavy bike but it handles just like a sports bike with these tyres fitted I am getting around 12000 km with tyre life left when I replace them the price is amazing I purchase front and rear tyres together on the net for under $300 AU and my local bike shop fits and balances them for around $15 each which represents amazing value here in Australia I recommend these tyres to any one who likes to go fast corner hard and wants to feel safe September 20, 2013
great grip i love these tires they hold great on the corners i only ride on the street but ride them pretty hard on my cbr 1000 i love the feel and they hold up pretty well probably around 5000 miles on a set pretty good for the cost August 26, 2013
Great Tire Used the 016 before, and spent more since then, but bang for the buck brought me back. July 22, 2013
Great Tire I came from a pirelli tire and I just wasn't feeling comfortable on that tire. It took a while to warm up and felt stiff, I had about 3 or 4 friends that have this Bridgestone tire and I was like let me try it out. Good wet traction, got caught in the rain not even a week of having them and when I tell you I feel the difference in corners I can really lean and they get nice and warm quickly. Great tire!

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
