My lastest purchase, an 08 blade, was bought with 2000miles on it and the tyres have only done straight miles, so much so that the Batlax tyres are flat on what was the peak(squared off). They are still legal but im not happy with them.

I told the garage to look into a set of super corsers, they replied "are you sure? they are very soft and dont last", so i thought id better consult the forum :)

Im gonna do a track day or so this year but probably 2-3000 road miles per year, with that in mind what is the best or a good tyre for my 08 Blade? :shrug:

Bridgestone BT0-16

They are very reasonable priced compared to lots of others and they are a great tire. With my riding style (semi-agressive street + 2-3 track days a year) I usually only get around 3000 miles from most tires (qualifiers, m-3's, diablo's...yadda yadda) With the multi compound BS I got 4500 miles from my first set. 50% longer tread wear and the feedback and grip on the track is great as well. Pluss the heat up time is pretty good so you know you will stick without too much effort on the street. The only thing to watch out for, but I'm sure this goes for a lot of tires, is make sure that you have enough air in them on the street. My buddy has an 07 600rr and he forgot to re-inflate his after a track day and they scalloped kinda wierd up front. All in all they are a great tire at a good price!
