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.

  • 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 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.

Great tire so far!!!
I recently bought a set of these tires to replace the old worn out tires that were on the bike when I bought it. What a great purchase!!! After speaking with the gear gurus here at RevZilla and explaining the usage, they pointed me to these.

I now have about 2,000 miles on these tires.

The center stripe is hard so it wears very little which is great for those commuter days, however the shoulders are soft and sticky which inspires confidence when carving the canyons and really getting the bike leaned over (I have wear inside 1/2" from the lip of the tire) and the tires hold the road nicely.

I've ridden in the rain a few times (not my favorite) but these tires gave me enough confidence knowing I was securely planted on the road. Water is ejected nicely and no slides or hydroplaning happened even on the hilly, twisty road.

To summarize--- these tires are a great commuter tire with sticky shoulders that inspires confidence when leaning the bike over. Great for the commuter/weekend warrior!!!

Awesome street tire
I'll try to be short, but I can honestly say I have no complaints with this tire. I have 12,000 miles now on them with my 2009 FZ6, including five track days. These tires can easily handle knee down lean angles and last a long time. They seem to do well in the wet and cold as well.

PR4 quality for less $$$
I put a set of these (GT spec) on my 2009 Concours14 after researching several different tires including Michelin PR4's. After nearly 10,000 miles of mixed riding including a trip from Florida to Canada via the Dragon and Blue Ridge Parkway, I can definitely say I got my money's worth. The harder center compound of the rear holds up well on the interstate and the medium side compound, together with the soft compound front tire, inspire confidence even while throwing around a big ST loaded with luggage. I have not ridden the PR4's so the only comparison I can make is I got both the front and rear Bridgestones for the price of the rear Michelin. Money well spent.

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.

Excellent handling, but after a few hundred miles there is quite a bit of wear on the outside portions of the tire. Since that is the purpose of the dual compound tire (equal wear on the outsides and middle), I believe they will eventually wear evenly. It probably depends on how much canyon vs. straight riding you are doing.

Bye Bye PR-4 Hello T-30
I just put 3K km on a set of the GT version and they are the best tires I've had on my 1250 Bandit. Much better than PR 4 GT's I just took off. Wear is excellent and no chicken strips. These tires turn in very easily and my bike has never handled this good.This will be my new go to tire if the wear is there.

Great tire so far!
I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 only because I haven't put very many miles on it yet so I can't speak to it's long term reliability.

So far it's a great tire! I couldn't believe the immediate difference in the feel of my bike. My previous tire (Shinko) was pretty bald before I changed it to this one, so perhaps that has something to do with the drastic improvement. Never the less, the feel, traction and handling are awesome!

Of Course Revzilla matched a competitor's price AND provided their usual excellent customer service assistance with quick delivery. This makes them #1 in my book!

Great Tire
This is my first tire purchase, but compared to the stock Dunlop D222 Sportmax (Honda CBR500r OEM model), these are fantastic. The turn in is significantly faster and more natural feeling. I have 500 miles on them and they don't look worn. Stability in the corners is great and the shoulders feel very confidence inspiring. These seem lighter than the OEMs and also not as wide. I am not saying that is a bad thing, just accurate size as the Dunlop's measured past the size. I didn't rate them as 5 star because this is my second set of tires and my experience is limited. I got caught in the rain once and didn't feel any loss in stability, but I didn't try to find the traction limits. When going through 3 inch deep puddles, it steered true. For my commuting, low hp, low weight bike application, this is an excellent choice and represents a great value with the rebate. I would definitely buy again, since I do not feel like I need supersport levels of grip, but these tires are used at a race school on CBR600RRs.
