I don't like Bridgestones however, mainly due to their absolutely shit front tires. They have poor grip and wear quickly, the rears seem pretty decent. This pertains to street tires, their race tires are good.
Very happy with the S20 front. Good grip and still plenty to go even when I'm on the 2nd rear.
my experience of the s20 was not to good - grip was ok but not inspiring,stearing was a bit lazy and got around 2k out of it but very uneven wear with some parts not down to the wear markers and other areas the tread came off - i will try to attach a picture to show what happened.This was an aftermarket tyre not o.e. and only road use no trackdays.Will be going back to using pirelli`s
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!
no burnouts !
same tyre but a different part of circumference
am awaiting a reply from bridgestone - see what they think
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.
