Re: Bridgestone BT-020 Front Tire in California
I have had nothing but long wear on the Bridgestone tires on the REAR... But the last set of tires I purchased and used were Michelin Pilot Road 3 /rear and PR4 front. They were a pleasure to ride on wet or dry pavement, and when I sold the bike a year ago they had 4000 miles on them and both looked like there were near new.
Note: I enjoy the twisties, but am not an aggressive rider... The next set I need to purchase will be the latest version of the Pilot Road tires...
In my experience, rain grooves act much like roads that have been milled for repaving. Very uncomfortable control on those roads.
