BTO 016 Vs BT003

Had an arguement at on the border cycles in pasadena.

I tell the dude behind the counter I want the BTO16 190/55 and he says all we have is the BT003 left and that its a better tire than the BTO16.

I have already tried the BT003 and thats why I want what I want.

Dude is trying to convince me to buy the 003 and starts talking like if he goes to the track everyday.

Then I hit em with the question. What do you ride? and he replies, " oh I sold it last month". To which I reply thanks for nothin azzzz. Make your money else where.

This proves my point

Oh and if you do take your chances there, check your tire pressure before you roll out. My bike didnt like 60 psi on a fresh slick tire.

I've been running bt003's for the last 3kmiles.

Doesnt show any wear established yet. Infact last Tuesday a few people were asking if I got new tires.

2 track days, rest backroad or highway mileage.



as for being a better tire, its a matter of preference over demand.

Both are the same price but I prefer the no drift versus controlled drift. Im not trying to learn that, I have it covered. I want to stick. on my zx10 no prob but on the 14 im slippn. On my 14 no slip on 016s

Yep last time I took one of my shaft drive bikes there. As I was about to take off. I just hit my finger on the bolt that held the rear axle and it fell to the ground. That bike is about 600 lb plus. I was about to drive of and I just was curious. I change my own tires since then. I just need to start buying them online so I don't have to deal with all the BS

I bet your 16s will slip more than 003rs's. But if you are not track riding then you really dont have to worry about spinning rear regardless of what tire you run.

Thats why I got the 003 I thought they would be a cheaper and a little less quality Corsa 3. I tried the Corsa 3 after you gave me the suggestion and I still love them to this day. But price is ball buster.

Im just hoping to buy an extra set rims so I can spend the money on the Corsa 3s and just change them out on weekends. maybe then they will last me longer than 2 weeks.

But I just had more confidence on the zx14 n the corner with the 016. tomato tomata.

Im still testing out the pilot rds 2. so stand by for review. Turns really good but it took really long to heat up. But just by looking at them you can tell their pretty thick. Definitly not a perfomance track tire. But definitly good and smooth for comuting. 500+ miles and there unchanged.

I'm no scientist, nor am I an expert tire-ologist, but under same/similar conditions (air pressure, tire temp, road surface, ambient temp, which bike, etc...) the 003's will provide more traction.

Said variables (and the many others) can and do make a H U G E difference between types and brands of tires.

My guess is that, in your experience, one or more of those variables were different.

I just put 400 miles on a set of BT016s on my 1098 and so far i have no complaints, if i give it too much throttle coming out of the turns the rear tire will spin, but that happened to me when i was running on Corsa 3s as well.... The only tire that didn't spin was the Supercorsa but they are just too soft in the center :(
