Bridgestone BT021 poor mileage

by Ian

I fitted a Bridgestone BT021 front tyre to my ST1100. It lasted for just 8000km before the sides were worn bald - the right hand side more so.

It gave fantastic grip though.

My BT021 experiences
by: Anonymous

I had just over 10,000 miles from my last front tyre, also a BT021. There was probably another 1500 miles left in it, but it was the start of the riding season, the bike was due its MOT and I was having a rear tyre fitted. Having it all done in one go just made sense.

I'm on a matched pair of Avon Storms now with nearly 10,000 miles. Going strong with good grip and plenty of life left in them.

I've been averaging 12-15,000 miles per year, mostly motorway miles at "motorway cruising speed".

Bridgestone longevity
by: Rob

This proves my point.

It's all very well having excellent roadholding and grip, but if you have to buy new tyres every five minutes it can work out just a tad expensive.

Imagine if the tyres on your car only lasted 8000km. Would we be happy with that? I don't think so.
