can I say about the BT-56 SS? How about awesome? I can't understand why these
tires always play second chair to the Dunlop D207. I personally like the Bridgestone
better. It is not quite as wide as the D207 (so it turns in faster) and sticks
every bit as well. Not only that but getting 4000 very agressive miles out of
a set of high performance tires? Count me in.
what about the BT57? (OEM in 2000) Well, it isn't quite as sticky as the BT-56
SS but still a pretty decent tire. I found that they lacked the sure-footedness
the 56's had. The tire felt as though it rolled around on the rim a bit (weaker
sidewall?) Still a great tire for those learning to "get it over" or those who
have more touring intentions.
