BTO 16 180/55

I want to know if anyone else runs the bridgestone BTO 16 180/55. I have been through almost every brand and lately I have been using the BTO's and im really starting to like them. Especially since the price is right.

Sure whenever I have extra cash I always get my Corsa3's but I really like the lean angles I can get with the BTO's. Im just more confident on them than the 2CT, M3 and qualifiers.

Opinions?

I have tried the 180/50 but the 180/55 make a big difference to me I can't explain why. I just feel more confident with the 180/55's

The 180/55 is a taller tire than the 50, which makes the bike turn in much easier.

I really like the 16's i have about 5 track days on them. My buddy has just switched from pirrelli to bridgstone. He says that they feel a little more stable than the pirrelli's

Got em on my RR and love em. There somewhat sticky, great shape, cheap and wear-life is decent.

Gotta love the triple compound

Definately a great tire with great wear. I had my rear last for over 5000 miles including a track day and a trip to the drag strip.
