Bridgestone BT014 and BT020 mileage difference

Hello! Still doing more research on these two tires. Will be looking for set of either the new 014 or the sport touring 020 front and rear.

Can all of you riders who have used either one of these tires please state your mileage that you have got and what kind of riding you do ie. track or street.

Seeing from my previous posts some of you have gotten 2500 miles out of the 014 so I just need more input please.

I will be riding mostly on the street and hitting the twisties but no track day for me. Only thing i'm worried about the 020 is it not gripping enough but most say I will never see the limit of even a sport touring tire.

Thanks again

if you want good mileage and grip, put a 010 on the front, and the 020 on the rear. You'll get excellent grip for what you are doing.

I had 020's on my Bandit. I put 11,000 kms on them before I traded that bike in (the wheels were due for new rubber by then). I also had that bike to a couple of track days and I have nothing but good to say about them

Re: Bridgestone BT014 and BT020 mileage difference

I ran a 020 rear on the back of my 929 in 2002. I put 8000 miles on it, all high speed interstate work, I still have the tire and I bet its got 3-4000 miles still to go...

Re: Bridgestone BT014 and BT020 mileage difference

Wow you guys running the 020 are putting on alot of miles!! Any negative things you can say bout the 020?? Only negative thing I've heard bout the 020 is that its traction is not as good since its a sport touring and that coming out of corners is quite touchy.

Thanks for the input

Re: Bridgestone BT014 and BT020 mileage difference

I have no negatives... For that life, of course it isn't going to grip like a diablo corsa, but you expect that... It worked damn good in the wet and never gave me issues, but I don't ride track pace on the street either, so your *mileage* may vary...
