    Comments about Bridgestone Battlax BT003 Racing Motorcycle Tire:

    These tires are extremely good on my GSX-R1000.
    They are a good performance tire with fairly good wear characteristics. I got around 4500KM's (could have got more but was close to the wear tabs and rather get another tire than void Insurance with a bald tire).
    Slippery when cold but fast warm-up time.
    Not very wet weather friendly... definitely not as good in the wet as the BT016.
    UNBEATABLE in the DRY for a street tire...
    Very Happy...

    Comments about Bridgestone Battlax BT003 Racing Motorcycle Tire:

    I bought bt003 rear tire for my zx10 before i had bt16 on there from factory and its a day and night deference. In sharp corners i use to feel the bike kinda a slide but now it hooks like u wouldn't believe. The traction is amazing couldn't be more happy with it. Anybody with a rocket who like corners this is defiantly the tire ....

      Comments about Bridgestone Battlax BT003 Racing Motorcycle Tire:

      Awesome TRACK tires !!

      Perfect for shorter tracks with lots of turns and some minor imperfections. Work great at 30 psi. - NO COLD tearing or slippage at lower temp. emviroments.
      Could be used as street / canyon tires but will only last 3 K miles at lower air pressure settings.

      Sticky Tires = Lower Mileage
