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

Great tire for my boxer !
My BMW boxer does better with single compound front tires like this T30. This is my third set of Bridgestone Battlaxes and I get good mileage, cornering feel and smooth ride with them. I tour with these, the rears will square off from all the interstate miles, but still do well in the corners. Wet grip has been good, I can continue to motor on, no matter the weather.

So far, so good. Ask again after 10,000 miles.
Very good tire. Previous tire, Battlax 023 ran 19K miles.
This is Bridgestone's replacement for that tire.

Great All-Around Street Tire
I purchased a set of the T30s for my zx14. I ride a lot of hard miles in SoCal twisties, but still do enough commuting to give both aspects in my review. The rear tire wears very quickly(almost done in 3,200 miles), but the front seems to wear closer to iron, but still no grip issues!!! The front tire was keeping me perfectly steady and no feel of slippage in my knee dragging rides, but doesn't show any extreme wear from hard riding or interstate miles. The T30 wears down quick once you hit half-tire life, but the front is showing hardly any wear so far(1,200 miles). I definitely recommend the front for anyone, but especially those who ride hard in all weather conditions. It looks like it's made for cold/rainy weather, but it performs like the 016pro in the dry, also! I love the front, but the rear just doesn't have the life expectancy I need from a touring tire.

Great grip, even new
After having the new Bridgestone Battlax T30s installed, I rode my bike home in 14 degree weather, when the roads had been already salted for an impending snow storm. Ever wary of new tires, I couldn't be sure how these would perform, so I didn't push it too much, but I think my worries were unfounded.

These have great road feel, good grip, even when conditions are nasty and you ride through some slushy stuff. It feels like the contact patch is much larger than it is. I'd happily recommend these to someone else. The front tire soaks up bumps and sidewall seems stiff enough to handle some decent cornering, though I haven't really been dragging knees anywhere!

That said, I'll have to wait and see on longevity, but I'm optimistic these things will roll for 1000s of miles.

Excellent all-around sport touring tire
I've not had the tire long enough to comment on mileage however so far I am nothing but impressed. Smooth ride, excellent grip, lot's of confidence. What more can you expect?

Great tire at a great price!!!
I ride a 2005 BMW 1200 GS and decided to go full street tires on the bike since I wasn't doing any off road and to see if I could get a little better mileage from the tires at a good price. I had Metzlers Tourance before and the front only lasted 5,500 miles. I ride at a fast pace, scraping pegs and I like mixing it up with the crotch rockets in the twisties. I noticed great grip right from the start and the bike feels very planted and it holds it's line very well, I feel very confident about the grip and how the bike settles in the turns with these tires.
I've only ridden 2,000 miles on them so far but they still look brand new. Very happy with these tires.

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.

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.

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.

Bang for your buck tire with good reviews so I tried it. Bought in July 2014 and after 11,555 year round miles in the high desert of New Mexico it's still going strong. Just purchased a replacement for the rear (also 11,555 miles on it) . This is a great set of tires! Best tires I've ever had!!

Had many BBs before, chose the T30 looking for better touring life.
P H on Oct 25, 2015
I ordered the T30 rear tire in June. I commute 108 miles/day, 2,160mi/month. The rear tire has worn exceptionally well with very little center flat-spotting. I could not give the tire a high enough rating. I wanted to give this matching front tire a try. I currently have a Dunlop which has scalloped so badly, I have lost all confidence in it's ability to hold traction in a corner.
I'm anxious to get this tire mounted and rolling!
Rafe B on Oct 18, 2015
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I have run Bridgestones since 2000 and love them. This tire has good ratings and replaces my favorite BT023.
Robert K S on Nov 17, 2014
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.
NYr1200RT on Oct 29, 2014
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.
JAIME A on Oct 28, 2014
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.
