    Comments about Bridgestone Battlax BT45 Motorcycle Tire:

    I had a 110/90-16 front and a 130/90-16 rear installed on my '91 Kawasaki Ninja 600R to replace the previous tires on it. It feels and handles like a completely different bike. I don't own a car so I'm on my bike 7 days a week, so I'm sure you can imagine the wear and tear I put on my bike; mostly spirited highway commuting, with a bit of time spent in the city. These BT45's have been great to me. They handle well on straightaways, solidly hug the corners, and hold up amazingly at times where I've been caught in the rain. I was able to get 17k miles out of my last set and have just ordered another, enough said.

      Too wide for rim.....check rim fit first

      By Dave

      from Wilder, KY

      Comments about Bridgestone Battlax BT45 Motorcycle Tire:

      I ordered a 130/70-18 to use on my cafe bike with a 2.50 wide rim. The Battlax BT45 in that size is intended to be used on a 3.50 wide rim - so the tire is pinched narrow and is only 116mm wide as a result, and little tread actually touches the pavement. I only have 50 miles on the tire, and just ordered a 110/80-18 BT45 that is supposed to be used on the size rim I have. The Bridgestone website has a recommended rim/tire chart - it should be provided on this site.

          Thanks for your question. Front would be 100/90-18 Rear would be 120/90-16. You may find a close variation in this tire that would work depending on your needs. Please feel free to give us a call if you have any questions 1-888-339-3888.

      • Q:

        I'm looking at this ad and I see two tires... is it a rear tire as well as a front tire? One tire is thicker than the other so I assume yes... is the price for both tires? I have a Suzuki 250 gz and the front tire is a 110/90-16 and the rear tire is a 130/90-15. Also The tires I currently have are tube tires... and the ones I am looking at the Bridgestone Battlax BT45s are tubeless... would I need to make any modifications?

          Thank you for your question. The tires are sold individually, the picture is a sample image provided by the manufacturer. Yes you can mount tubeless tires on a spoked wheel without any modification. The image is a front tire and a rear tire you are correct.

          A:

          Thank you for your question. The tire is marked with directional arrows. A dual compound tire has softer rubber on the lean angle edges. Stiffer rubber on the center for the straight riding.

          Thanks for your question! It is not recommended to put a rear tire on the front since it can cause you to crash. Here is the part number for that front tire 44605.
