Great Tire - Bridgestone BT-016 PRO
I've been using these tires for several years on my 2008 Hayabusa and like them very much. Last year I watched a YouTube comparison of top of the line sport tires that included the BT-016. The tires performed admirably in this specialized group. To my pleasure, after watching the review, my cornering improved to the point where chicken stripes have vanished and squaring off is a thing of the past. As I say, great tires!!!

What is the "real" difference between the Bridgestone BT-016 rear tires in sizes 190/50-17 6/32 versus 7/32?
A shopper on Aug 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The 7/32 tire is the "stock" version suitable for most everyone. The 6/32 tire is a "bespoke" version manufactured specifically for Kawasaki's superbike.
