BT016's... Whatcha think?

Ok... the sizes that would fit my bike are the F120 and R190.

That's a dual compount up front and a 5 compound in the rear for the 190.

I read all the reviews I could get my hands on, but no mileage numbers...



I have had PP's on the Busa, Bridgestones when I first got it, and a couple sets of Corsa III's. PP2ct on the rear now.

My preference is the Corsa's but Im limited in the rear to about 4k miles each. But I have full confidence in the soft rubber to grip on the sides when Im over.


So... personal experience.... What type of mileage/grip have you notices w the BT016s? Cuz you cant beat the price... Thanx guys!!!

Well I don't have a long write up for you but I completely scrubbed them last time I was out riding around Crabb River Road. They seemed to hook up great for me once they were warm. They stepped out the other night cold but it was expected at 9x mph

hooligan, mr zx6, nox and a few others have tried them

i almost did. i think they would def be worth a try. cuz the 2ct, 002's, wont get u much wear on the street.

Maybe if u would quit doing burn outs u would get more out of ur III's

i dont know much, but i think they would be worth a try, a good tire for the way u ride!

plus, im starting to be a big fan of bridgestones...

haha thanx Gabbi...

no burn outs... only at freeway speeds...


They are 40 bux cheaper then the Corsas depending on size; It is a street-based tire, unlike the bt002's...

There are different compounds for oem and a/m...

I think you are correct; after this 2CT I'll try the rear. Unfortunately the torque is what kills my rear tires (last Corsa went 4kmls.)

J***Y had a set on his 636 and he loved them, but they wore out pretty quick. Hooligan just sold his cuz he didn't like it AT ALL for the track. Said it didn't hook as well as the 002's. I like the idea of the mulitiple compound, but for street riding I don't think it will get much better than the 2ct's. IMO. Now on the track, another story. Or you could try a Pilot Road and get some real mileage out of the rear.

, yall riding with these on the track? No thanks. I bought the bt016 rear and its on my street wheel. My track wheel has a michelin p race on it And my front tire has the p race too, it does the job

Those pilot races are weird to me though, they dont like being cold at all. Im goin back to 002's

You also have the oem spec ones. I'm guessing the ones that come off the shelf are a little better

OEM BT-016J mine BT-016R

the 016's are great tires. like Amanda said, ive got em (you shoulda got em too btw. ) and i love em. since i ride on the street alot i need something that has some life. but since i do trackdays i need something with performance. and thats what i got. the 016 is a good compromise tire for people like me. i sound like a freaking commercial but i dunno how else to explain it.

anyway, try em out get em warm and wear out the sides

great tires! thats what came stock and i replaced the rear with the same at 4k miles. it probably had another few hundred miles left on it but we were going to austin, so i wanted a fresh one. honestly i couldnt tell a huge difference between the oem spec and off the shelf. though i wasnt on a track, we were in the hill country...they hold good.

I think you'll enjoy them. They're a great street tire with great grip for what they are. You won't get race type grip with them, but for harder street riding like you like to do, they should be easily up to the task.

That's kind of my concern; if a 600 wears them out in 4-5k mls, Im going to tear them up in the rear.

take into account the fact that i ride very aggressively. im sure you do as well though and on a busa im sure you probably would wear them out faster. but the price is right...and they stick real good.

The BT016 are great for spirited backroad riding and max out at Level 2 (intermidiate) at the track. The'll stick on the street for sure, just be carefull if you plan on stepping it up on the track, they will slide if your not smooth

What little experience I have had with them 24X street miles have been good thus far. I believe mine are not the off the shelf brand. One thing I noted is they seem to take longer to get up to temp. I have had a little slip and wiggle from time to time when cold.

I just this past weekend had Brandon at Motorcycles Unlimited put one on the rear of my 07 gixxer 1K, have only put maybe 3 miles, seems fine so far, I never get more that 3K out of any tires.

Adam convinced me on the 016's and I got mine put on at Motorcycles Unlimited a couple weeks ago (only cuz they had them the cheapest and in stock), I rode a little on them after that but nothing intense....Then this weekend I rode the forest and Fayettville...and I am completely SOLD!!!! They are great!!! No slips or anything....they grip very well on the road...Now I'm gonna see what they do on the track!!! Like Adam said---they should be good till Level 2 or whatever....So far he has been right!!! I'm HAPPY!!!

My experience with duo compound tires on heavy bikes with lotsa torque is they don't last long. I also seem to get the softer sides slippery at the end of long hot days.

That being said, if I can get 5K out of a rear I count myself lucky.
