Bridgestone tires

Any reviews or thoughts on the Bridgestone BT-021 on the 250?


(Pirelli Sport Demons were my choice but I cant get the same tire as minizoom. That would be )

I didn't know Bridgestone made BT-021 sizes for the 250. I know they make BT-90 which is kind of pricey. Anyways from what I've been reading the Sport Demons are supposed to be better then the BT-45's. Anyways, I'll give those a try.

So far I've only ran the BT 090's. They're awesome track /race tires. Major sticky! But I will hopefully be getting the BT 16's. I've heard those are awesome street tires. Are you riding only street?

This set of tires will be primarily street/canyons. I don't commute and I need a truck before I start going to Track Days consistently. According to the Bridgestone website the smallest BT-016 rear is a 150/60/17 with a recommended rim size of 4.5. I'd try a tire with a recommended rim size of 4 but 4.5 scares me a little. Too big of a jump for our 3.5 rims IMO.

I would like to try BT-090's but seem to be slightly difficult to find. I will wait till summer with more possibilities of Track Days to hunt them down.

I will get you (and everyone on here) the front /rear sizes for the BT 16's. They'll fit without issue. I haven't had a tough time finding the BT 090's. Huh. But really, in my personal opinion, you should run the BT 16's for the street. But I have a bias opinion.
