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

love these Bridgestone T30 GT tires I had Bridgestone T23 GT tires on my Honda ST 1300A, since I bought the bike two years ago. (the GT version is for heavier bikes, like the ST 1300A). I was very impressed with them, they hold the road like a magnet - never felt any slippage under any conditions, wet or dry. They lasted about 9K front, and 6K rear. T 23's are being dropped by Bridgestone, so I replaced them with the new T30 GT's - so far, just as highly satisfied with them Revzilla's price was great, free and fast shipping, and with my TeamZilla credit from previous orders, the front came in for under $100. I always go to Revzilla first for any of my MC needs.... November 13, 2014
They Grip great 3000 miles out of them so far, barely see that they've been ridden. Great handling, great performance. Unsure of rain yet (I Live in CA) November 10, 2014
Rides better than stock Pirelli Angel ST Bought this tire for the promise of relaxed performance. The ride or bump absorption is good. I ordered the stiffer 'A" spec or GT spec version but will order the standard next time around because my Moto Guzzi Norge does is not heavy enough to demand the reinforced tire. I assume the standard tire would ride even better. November 10, 2014
Seems a very good tire Great handling' as to longevity time will tell. A tip I got is to keep 44lbs in the rear and 42lbs in the front to greatly increase mileage fwiw. December 15, 2014
Super This tire is simply SUPER! (Sorry no rain info. I do NOT ride in the rain) I love this tire. GREAT grip, super smooth transition, solid, and absorbs bad pavement, without even a wiggle....... One of the finest fronts to ever grace my bike! I WILL repeat this purchase! October 27, 2014
Best Tire for the MONEY $$$$ Been running Battle Axe BT-023 Front and Rears on my "09" BMW R1200gs with excellent handling in wet and dry weather avg. 10-12,000 mi. depending how hard I ride. Drove the last one 106 mi. on steel cord after melting the sidewalls in the twisty's. Great tires, especially for the money. and the T30's are even better. October 1, 2014
A bit stiff but wears like a rock Put this tire on before a 2500 mile round trip on my FJR 1300, mostly super slab. Hit two micro-bursts one in each direction and both front and rear T-30's held and showed no signs of slipping nor hydroplaning. The wear on the front T-30 is very good, actually shows no sign of wear nor cupping, however I only have about 4000 miles on it currently. Compared to the PR2 front, the T-30 is a bit stiffer but seems to be wearing better. September 21, 2014
Good grip I have NEVER run these in the rain, so I will let others comment on that. I chose the 55 series because it was said that my full liter bike (Bimota SB6R) would benefit from the stronger carcass. I will NOT do that in the future. the 55 vs. the 50 changed the profile of the tire and made the tire rounder vs. bowl shaped. This does NOT allow me to access the very outermost part of the tire and leaves what they call "chicken strips" even with the pegs touching the road. The outermost part of the tire provides the most grip, as there is no tread there..... That being said, The grip on these tires is as good as any true sport tire I have ever used....That being said, as a highway rider, I never get to a point where i am actually sliding a dry tire on the roadway. (close but not "Backin' ' er in" for me, on the highways) The mileage is nowhere near what was promised, I am at about 2,000 miles and already near the wear bars on the center strip....They will be DONE at about 4-5K. The tire heats up well and provides good grip even when slightly cool..... Overall, I think I will choose the 190/ 50/zr17 next time. It has a smaller sidewall and a more bowl shaped profile.

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
