Excellent Buy
This tire has given me excellent service, 17,600 trouble free miles, mounted on front of 2005 GW, 2012 Road Smith conversion trike. I expect to get another 1,000 miles from this tire, maybe more. For the price, a great buy.

Goldwing trike front tire
I've been using this tire as a front fitment replacement on GL1500 & GL1800 trikes. They perform very well, and because it has greater tread depth, they last much longer than the standard front tire.

Great street tire on dirt bike
I am an "old f_rt" who is tall, long legged, and overweight. A KLR650 fits. I bought one used and after 8500 miles, needed to replace the dual-sport tires. I never do off-road riding beyond a driveway or maybe well maintained dirt road; the knobbies were not for me. Bridgestone makes a great tire here. There are not many road bikes using the 90/90-21 size (sportster?) I only have about 300 miles on it, but cornering is good for my use and it is far smoother than the dual sport tires by the OEM.

Gl1800 tire
At the urging of many other GL1800 trike riders who have gotten only 3 to 5 thousand miles on the front tire of their Gold Wing, l purchased this tire which l have been told by many should get me at least 18 thousand trouble free miles. Tme will tell, but if it gets twice what l got on my original tire, this will be one happy rider.

Excellent Performance and Value
I've used these BT45 front tires for road racing and they perform almost as good a full road race rubber that costs twice as much. They wear acceptably and outlast the race rubber 2 to 1.

BT45 is my "go-to" tire for vintage motorcycles
I like the BT45 120/80H-18 rear tire very much. It is just the right size for my vintage motorcycle, better than the 120/90 which is a bit too tall. The BT45 rear tire has great handling and grip, with acceptable durability.

What is the date stamp?
A shopper on Aug 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It can be between 6 months to 1 1/2 years
We restock frequently, and the tires get rotated, so it's hard to say which exact tire date you'll get
