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.

  • 3LC (Dual Compound)
  • 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

good tire wear good grip I put a set of the Bridgestone T30 on my ST 1100 just before vacation this year. We rode 2 up over 3000 miles. We rode a combination.of Interstate and twisty roads. We road in the rain a lot. The grip was good and the tire noise was not a problem. I figure they were going to last about 8000 miles but since I bought a new bike I didn't wear them out. I liked them enough that I will put them on the new bike when it needs new rubber. August 18, 2014
liked the tires good grip and wear I put a pair of the Bridgestone T30 on my Honda ST 1100 just before we went on vacation. We rode 2 up for over 3000 miles in 10 days. We rode combination of interstate and twisty roads. We road Natchez Trace, Tail of the Dragon, and Moonshiner. The tires handled the curves wonderfully. The wet grip felt good as we rode through a lot of rain. The tire wear looked good but bought a new bike when we got home so I didn't wear them out. I will put them on the new bike when it needs new rubber though. August 18, 2014
You really can have it all! I currently run a T30 rear / 003 RS front on my 2004 636. My style of riding is aggressive canyon with the occasional track day. I started running an ST rear with the 023 in 2012 because I can't afford to replace a rear tire twice a season. I liked the 023 but the T30 is head and shoulders better. Especially at deep lean angles. I can touch my knee down in the canyons without any feeling of instability. Some of that might be the 003 RS as well. I can't speak for the front tire but I can confidently say the T30 rear is good for a B group maybe low A group track pace and of course will handle anything you can throw at them in the canyons. Not to mention it'll last longer than 4000 miles. July 1, 2014
very grippy and predictable handling I use these on cross country trips 2up on my Ulysses.Had Angels once but at 8000 miles cords were showing,went for 023 Gt ever since,slightly less dry grip but way better longetivity.Tried these new T30 GT and dry handling is on par now with the Angel's with better front end feel and longetivity is the same....I will continue using these.

D***!!!! These things are amazing!!!! I switched up from the Pilot Power 2CT and an so glad I did. Wet or dry, cold or warm they grip like I am glued to the road. May 20, 2014
Good traction in wet and dry 3000km (2000 miles) so far, wear looks uniform, good traction and predictable turn in July 1, 2014
Good overall. These tires are great for everyday riding. I can tell they will wear well. Already ridden in the rain and they are much more confidence inspiring than my last sport tires. The only negative, if you can call it that, is the profile. They are designed to work very well in a straight line. The profile of this tire leads to a slower turning front end compared to a pure sport tire. However, the more I ride it the more it becomes a training issue more than anything. These things are great for the money. I recommend them just be aware you will have to learn these tires and how they work. June 23, 2014
Great product The center part of the rear tire is still solid after 1000 kms of riding. The side parts are soft which is great for lean angles. The center part will give you more milage and the outer part will really depend on how you take a corner during rides. For me the important thing is, the tire sticks to the road when taking corners.

A shopper asked: I'm looking to replace a rear Avon Storm. Honestly, I'm pretty happy with the Storm, I got 13000 miles on my ST1100 doing road trips and commuting. I'm looking to get similar mileage. Any ideas on comparing these two? The price difference would be nice if the T30's will hold up as long. One of the reviews on this site has me worried about that. Thanks. Aug 4, 2014

Vishnu S: Hello there!

First of all, congrats on the ST1100 :) I've the same MC, a 1991 Silver, and I just installed front & rear T30s on my bike a month ago. The wear so far (~1000 miles) is very minimal & the grip/sportiness is fantastic. I dont think you have much to worry about, these tires have been well received on ST1100s & ST1300s.

If you havent yet done so, please do join ST-Owners dot com! You'll have a ton of ST1100 info at your fingertips, and also there's some real bad stuff that's happened to many riders using the Avon Storms, glad you are alright. The storms have caused many (more than 10) on the forum to experience blowouts! Its alarming - no one recommeds the storms for the ST1100 size.
Good luck with your T30 purchase! Great tire, no regrets.

Garrett W: Hard to say. It depends on how you ride, what the pavement is like where you ride and what the temperatures are where you ride. 13,000 miles from a set of sport touring tires seems like an awful lot to me. I've got about 6,000 kilometers on the T-30 at this point and i think they'll last another 2,000, maybe a little more. This was aggressive sport riding in northern california in very hot weather, with a commute from Canada and back with two days of cool wet weather. I think you'd be hard pressed to get 13,000 miles out of a rear. Front probably yes. Aug 6, 2014

Salvatore D: The T30 is an excellent tire but I would definitely return to the Avon storm in your case. I bought the T30 to get touring with the occasional track day use on my 1989 Ninja ZX10. I have an 18 inch rear wheel so tire selection is limited. Stick with the tires you know get the job done. 13,000 miles is excellent. Well done Aug 5, 2014

Jerrold john P: I think the t30s is more of a track tire that has been applied new technology like the dual compound areas meaning hard on the center to give additional milage then soft at the outer to give you the grip when cornering. Storm is more of a touring that has been develop to give more milage. Aug 5, 2014
Jim C: So far i have 2500 miles on the T30 GT's, handling in wet & dry is good, and wear is minimal at this point. Previously ran 2 sets of Bridgestone 023 GT's which got over 10,000 miles on an FJR 1300, expect to get the same from the T30's. Aug 5, 2014

Willard G: Sorry, I've not been riding for medical reasons. Only have about 2,500 on the tire. We must ride differently; I normally get 8 to 9 K on a rear tire. WG Aug 5, 2014

Scott C: You want a tire that is intended to fit the make and model of your ride reguardless of the name of tire manufacturer. Make sure the wheels are made for your ride. Make sure the tire is made for your ride. You will have established the safest combination for you and your passenger. Always use an innertube, rim strip and sometimes a tire boot with wire spoke rims. Mar 3, 2014
