Very happy with the S20 front. Good grip and still plenty to go even when I'm on the 2nd rear.

Looks like a on off faulty tire with de-lamination. Bridgestone should give you a new one.

Im just finishing scrubbing a set of S20's that came on a 2012. I've owned Batalax bt016's, stock Dunlop Qualifiers, Q2s, a rear Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa and now the stock S20s

My impression of the tires soo far. IMHO is good. They seem to warm up quickly and seem to have good grip right out of the box.

How many miles on your bike or tires when the back slid out? This tires scrubbing them is been relatively easy then when i scrubbed the Q2's. Those took longer and were VERY VERY slippery. After that very good tire. Highly recommend them!

Yeah, I would say that's faulty, youre running the wrong psi, or you run a LOT of highway. I've got about 1k miles on my set and a track day, they still have at least 50% and are worn evenly, if not more on the sides.

I mounted a set a month ago. Been on a few spirited rides with them. Good feel and feedback. I have had no complaints up to this point.

Not lovin the front grip. Going back to Q2s. Bike seems too heavy for front tire.


If you can't run with the big dogs,
stay on the f@ckin' porch.
