Reviews for Bridgestone Front Battlax BT-023 120/70ZR-17 Blackwall Tire
Quiet, Good handling
I bought my 1st Battleax 023 about mid season last year after the Bridgestone tires that I was using were discontinued. I was concerned that this tread pattern might cause a lot of road noise, however this tire was as quiet as any I've had until the tread started getting choppy at about 8000 miles. I'll get another 1000 noisy miles and then replace with the same model. Tire has always handled very well.I would recommend this item to a friend.
