    awsome tire

    I was hesitant on buying this tire, I am not a fan of the BT 016 and the BT003 is more track day than street. I have had two set of of pilot powers on and I was always very happy with them. After just a few days of riding on the S20's I can say everything about this tires is better... this tire def. wowed me

    S20 Rear Tire Review- 2005 gsxr 600

    I use the S20 rear with a BT016 pro front. So Bridgestone claimed this S20 was better and I have to agree bigtime! I love this tire so much because it warms up so fast and Ive never squirmed or lost traction rain or shine. I've gotten to the edge of both sides the first day of breaking it in and have no negative feedback so far. Used for a month and probably 700 miles. I compared its softness with buddies Q2's PP's and these feel softer! I recommend em but who knows how long theyll last.

    Great tire ! Haven't been on wet traction to rate but I'm sure the traction would be fine .

    New Favorite

    Love these tires. Can't believe it but it makes my CBR 1000RR handle even better. I've got 2700 miles on them so far & lots of tread left. Should get 4k out of them. I like them enough I've bought & stored a second set while on sale. I'm a fairly aggressive rider, don't stunt or drag race but do occasional track days. Highly recommend this tire.

    A++

    This tire has everything that I was looking for. It worms up really quick and that good. The positive traction it gives off is great.

    Good tire thus far...

    Tire is good from a cold start in the mornings from work... I have this tire on a 08' Ninja 250, has little room to spare between the swing arms but clears by 5mm or so... Seems to have better cornering than my original Battleaxes that came on the bike... Some will scoff, but on country roads and such, this bike can still get you into trouble, this tire has a good feel from sidewall to sidewall... Only had them for a few weeks, so cannot say about the tread life...

    Great so far

    Haven't ridden in rain. Only had them a month, but if wet traction and tread life are anything like my experience thus far - great tire!

    Best tire ever ridden on

    Bought these tires for my FZ6R early this summer. Wearing great so far, put over 1250 miles on them and still have almost new tread depths. I work for Bridgestone and am probably biased, but these are way better than the Dunlops and Michelins I've ridden previously. Great dry weather traction, very fast warm up, and pretty good wet traction. Never buying another tire again. It's Bridgestone or nothing!

    Hard Rider

    So far this tire is perfect. At high speed of over 140mph this tire is perfect. Lower speeds are the same. No problem in wet weather. Good stopping power.

    Best Street Tire I have ever used, Triumph Daytona 675

    In a nutshell this tire can do it all! Used for one day at Jason Pridmore Star School (on Track) loads of feedback and grip in 100 degree heat, over 2000 miles of commuting, and multiple trips to Arkansas for some spirited back road riding. Tires performed amazing in the damp wet roads this weekend in Arkansas. Managed 3400 miles on the rear before there was noticeable wear that started to effect handling/performance. For reference I typically get 2000-2400 miles out of a set of sport tires.

    Awesome tread life!

    I have put almost 8000 miles on these tires living in HOT southern Arizona with biweekly mountain trips. They have amazing cornering and stability in both Dry and Wet. Just bought a second set for my 07 ZX-6.

    Best tire @ its price point!!

    At this price point NOTHING beats these tires!! I've danced with the Mich PP for 3 years before switching to the BT016s.. Major improvement. The S20s go beyond the BT016s & even the Pros.... EXCELLENT TIRE!!!
