Bridgestone Battlax Sport Touring T30 Front Tires

The Battlax T30 is the new reference for relaxed, touring performance, letting you rediscover the joy of riding. Featuring quick response, tight handling and support for high lean angles make it even easier to hold your line on both wet and dry surfaces. High-speed cruising, sports-like grip and precision steering response: all the right ingredients for genuine, consistent performance. Plus, outstanding stability, very good bump absorption and low-noise cruise performance combine for the ultimate riding experience.


  • Single compound
  • Light weight carcass reduces gyro effect and weight on the front offering a lighter feel, ability to hold rider's chosen line and predictable handling
  • Front T-Cross shaped Groove provides better contact due to reduced tread stiffness
  • Slanted groove towards the shoulder provides higher block stiffness due to consistent input force when cornering
  • Swirled shape groove offers a combination of round and straight elements which improves contact without losing block stiffness
  • Semi-slick pattern shoulder with fewer grooves provides a larger contact patch, higher block stiffness and confidence to the rider when cornering
  • Dry handling is significantly improved over the BT023
  • Some sizes available in GT Spec
  • GT Spec tires provide improved handling and stability for heavier, sport touring bikes and feature a slightly modified tread pattern on front and stiffer construction on rear

Replaced the 023 tire This tire is much smoother and I'm able to run lower tire pressure with increase in height being that it made for a heavier bike which is what I had. Tire holds its line in a curve and much better then the 023 tire. If you want better handling and longer mileage this is a excellent choice. September 23, 2015
Replacement for OEM tire on 2014 R1200RT Bought these tires as a replacement for OEM equipped 2014 BMW R 1200 RT. Gaining grip confidence in the tire; still a little early for wear indicators with 3000 miles, but looks promising. September 21, 2015
Good handling, short lifespan I purchased a pair of T30s for my Super Tenere for touring and long rides. These tires mounted easily and handled great from the time they were new, but developed a flat center before long even though I ride a lot of local twisty roads. The few highway runs I did with them resulted in the rear squaring off. My main goal was a long lasting tire and these failed miserably. At 5500 miles since they were mounted in late June the front is squared off and scalloping a bit, and the rear is smooth in the center. In comparison, the much cheaper dualsport Battlewings that came on my bike lasted 7500 miles of the same kind of riding. I'll be trying another tire for my replacement. September 6, 2015
2015 Kawasaki Versys 1000 LT The base T30s (non-GT Spec; F Code; 180/55-17 Front, 120/70-17 Rear) were OE on my 2015 Kawasaki Versys 1000 LT. I'm now replacing both front and rear with a new set of T30s after racking up 11,700 miles on the first set. Replacement of the rear is necessary; the front has several hundred more miles on it, but I'm replacing it along with the rear as tires have a tenancy to go more quickly at the end of their life. My OE Battlax T30 tires saw thousands of highway miles in many three-digit temp summer days. They also saw two extended trips into the curvy Smoky Mountain roadways for days on end. Lastly they carried me and the bike through one of the wettest summers in Florida history. They always held their lines on wet, dry, hot and cold surfaces (best cold surface=under 30 degrees on the curves + switchbacks up Pikes Peak); they're the type of tire that you quickly build confidence in. I'll be moving up to the GT-Spec version of the T-30 (B Code). The price point on these tires (even GT-Spec) that rolled almost 12,000 miles can only be described as outstanding. August 18, 2015
great tire tire has great traction ride is great it does not show any ware at all. August 17, 2015
Good Tire for the price I have put 1000 miles on this rear Tire since mounting it. I have not had a Bridgestone tire sine my FJR was new. I have mounted quite a few tires since then. First impressions. ..very deep tread ....rode decent. did not seem as neutral as normal. I didn't change my front tire as it still was good.."Michelin Pilot Road 3" . Corner grip seems good ...not Michelin good but good. I look for mileage ,hopefully this will last. I ride 70 miles a day to and from work at about 90 - 100 mph.....yeah don't lecture me been riding 40 years and very high milage. I have ridden in some serious rain and this tire did very well. Would I buy it again? Depends on the milage I get out of it. August 10, 2015
Good value but not the best option May be the weight of the Super Tenere but not getting the mileage out of these I expect. On prior bikes I could get 12k out of Tourance and Scorpions, I expect 10k. These went about 8k and are bald in the center (about the same with Tourance EXPs). Switched to some Shinkos for the heck of it considering the price. Front Bridgestone was fine but was punctured badly with a self tapping screw and discarded at ~5-6k with little wear. August 6, 2015
Love this Tire!! I just bought my second set of these (GT version). I have a BMW R1200RT and it handles great with these tires! Much better than the Metzeler Z8s I had on previously. They have great dry grip and corner very well. I have a lot of confidence in these tires. Highway miles are also quiet and super smooth! I can put my cruise control on at 75mph, take my hands of the bars and go straight as an arrow! The Z8s couldn't do that. They handle fine in the rain too, but I ride very conservatively on wet roads and I'm sure I wouldn't push any tire to the point of lost traction on wet roads. As to the life of the tires, I have just over 7000 miles on them and the rear is just about to the wear bars. I'm sure I will get 8000 miles on the rear but not much more than that. It is wearing great with no obvious flat spot. The front tire is really impressive. No center ridge and is wearing just beautifully! could possibly get 10,000 miles but I change both front and rear at the same time. I'm also not that easy on tires but am pretty persistent on keeping the pressure where it should be. On these I run 40/42 PSI I was going to try the PR4s this go around but I think Michelin is more hype than anything. Sure it's a good tire but over $100 more per set good? I seriously doubt it. These T-30s have me impressed and I'll stick with them. You can't go wrong with these especially for the price compared to some of the competitors. July 29, 2015

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Maynard S: This tire is a follow-on to the BT-023, which is what I'm replacing. I have almost 18,000 miles on this tire (front) and it looks like it could go another 2 or 3,000 miles easy. I have been assured that the T30 is basically the same, 3-compound tire which gives much longer wear with the center portion of the tire having the hardest compound. The tread pattern looks almost identical to the BT-023, so I'm expecting similar results. Sep 30, 2015
David A: Good luck with previous version of this tire Jul 18, 2015
Ted A: GT version fills my heavier sport touring bike Jul 12, 2015

Tim N: I have had good luck with this tire on my FJR1300 and don't see the need to spend more money on the Pirelli Angel GT or the Michelin PR4 GT. It handles and wears well on the FJR1300. Apr 9, 2015
Jim M: to match my new rear tire Mar 6, 2015
Ken S: Size I needed for my '97 Honda ST11. Price was right, and Reviews were good. Long trip is in the planning stage for late spring, and I need a reliable, higher mileage set of tires. I've had good luck with Bridgestones in the past - both on my motorcycles and my cars and trucks. Mar 2, 2015
Don R: I'm using this tire based on good experience with the T30 rear. Feb 27, 2015

D J: good review on tire and great price also. Jan 19, 2015
Che-Chuen H: Running the BT-023's now on my 2007 FJR. Read on the Bridgestone site that the 023's are being replaced by the T-30's. I've ridden on the 023's for years and years and love them. Great performance, grip in the turns, and longevity of the center tread. Jan 7, 2015
Calvin W: have had good results with battlax tires in the past Dec 27, 2014
Nicholas L: Read too many stories of the Avon STorms separating when used on a Honda ST1100. I just hope I like the T30 as much as I do the Avons. Dec 1, 2014
Robert K S: I have run Bridgestones since 2000 and love them. This tire has good ratings and replaces my favorite BT023. Nov 17, 2014
Robert G: I was going on a cross country trip and needed a tire that could hold up to many miles on the highway with out breaking the bank. I felt that even if I was to wear out the tire it was a good value. 6K later the tire looks great and is holding up as good as any other tire I have used. Oct 29, 2014
JAIME A: I had some Bridgestone Battlax BTO16R PRO. They were great handling tires but since I do more than twice freeway riding than canyon carving, they wore down to almost the wire down the middle while still having pretty good amount of tread on the sides. So now I wanted some tires that were stronger in middle but to still have that great grip on the sides to not lose the great handling aspect that the BTO16s had. Through research, reading reviews, and looking for good pricing, these T30-GTs seem to be what I am looking for. Hopefully they work out for me. Oct 28, 2014
Charles B: I have been using bridgestone on my fjr1300 since i bought it in 2005, very good tire for the money. Have been to florida, all over east coast and out to colorado. Bridgestone has proven a good tire. Trying t30's by recommendation from fellow rider and very good breakdown of information from revzilla. Sep 23, 2014
DeLoran L: Video Review information on Revzilla and Bridgestones YouTube channels was one of the factors that drove my decision.
Also looking for a tire that will get good long distance mileage out of it so decided to try
