I have run Metzler, Dunlop CruiseMax, and these Bridgestone tires on my bike that now has 30,000 miles on it. This is the 4th rear tire that the bike has had since new. It came stock with this tire and now I have gone back to it. It preforms as well if not better as the others I have tried, pounds out just as many miles and is more economical when purchased through Dennis Kirk. NO ONE could come close to what I paid for this tire and I scoured the internet (Dennis Kirk matched and then beat the next closest competor by a sgnificant amount). Shipping was free next day UPS and the customer service was excellent at Dennis Kirk as usual. I am a very satisfied customer and will continue to shop Dennis Kirk. No more needs to be said,period!.
