BT45 Tire is perfect for my K75
I'm very pleased with the BT45. I noticed an immediate and substantial improvement in handling and stability on my BMW K75C. And the price was right, too! Highly recommended.

Exactly as advertised. Great Value
These tires lasted longer than my previous tires (Pirelli Sport Demons) and I felt that they had better traction during wet conditions as well. I was looking for a tire that could handle every day commuting as well as the occaisional canyon ride and these were perfect.

cbr250r front tire
I got this tire to put on my 2013 cbr250r. Very nice tire. The crown is much wider than the IRC it had on. Overall very pleased with my purchase and with revzillas outstanding fast shipping. I ordered on Friday morning, tire arrived at my doorstep 3 days later on Monday afternoon. Thanks ZLA!

Definitely best Bang for the buck
I ride a 1991 GS500E I have been using these for about 200 miles now. They come highly recommended by other GS riders. www.gstwins.com.

Price: 4/5 Basically very good bang for the buck
Quality: 5/5 They came in mint condition and fast
Use: 5/5 I have ridden them in a bit of rain here in the PNW, on asphalt the grip is awesome. I am by no means a racer or agressive rider but these feel great. I highly recommend them myself. I will probably end up getting again in the future

Long post: So basically when I got these i rode them for about 50 miles. The first 25 miles or so i took it easy on them never even reaching 40mph. After i had driven sufficiently far enough i jumped on the freeway and headed back home. At this time they were very warm but not completely broken in. On the twisties when i was going slow they had great grip and i never felt the bike give any ways or indication of losing control. On the freeway they were very quite and the bike was very stable. The cuts on the tire are made for all season but dont get me wrong. These will not help you in snow or dirt. They are a everyday commuting tire and nothing more. Excellent for that use. I would say they are great in the rain but not excellent.

Great Tire for the Price
This is the first time I have bought a motorcycle tire so I don't have the greatest authority on this topic. That being said, this tire seems to fit what I wanted perfectly. It is the same price as the original Dunlop tire that came on my bike. But the center tread of the rear Dunlop wore out on these straight and flat Kansas roads before I could put hardly any wear on the sides of the tread at all. This dual compound Bridgestone brilliantly solves that with harder rubber in the center of the tread and stickier rubber on the sides for cornering.

Longer lasting then my previous tires and reviewed well.
Joseph B on Jun 10, 2016
I have almost 9,500 miles on a set of these and they still have another season's worth of tread left. Most of my riding has been highway/commuting but they seem well suited for the twisties as well. Would recommend.

IT the only pretty sticky tire for some of my older cafe bikes. They actually stick really well and feel compliant. I like them better than Avons in the same size ranges.

robin D on Dec 11, 2014
Fellow Goldwing Trike riders are recommending this tire to use on the front but mounting in reverse to get more mileage and a better ride than the OEM tire.

one of the cheapest and best tires for an RD400 street bike.
Kevin B on May 12, 2014
This was the only tire that satisfied the size requirements for both the front and rear wheels of my '89 VTR250. Furthermore, it's been highly reviewed both on the VTR forum and almost everywhere else that I looked. I'm looking forward to getting mine installed and riding with them.

For long commute drives, highway preferably heard that these were highly good for long rides. I ride almost everyday and ride to work everyday round trip about 60 miles so hopefully these will work out good.
