I have a 2 yr old Biffer which has done just under 8000 miles. I've  ordered a pair of Bridgestone BT31's to be fitted next week to to replace the original BT57's. I know the Michelin's are meant to be great but they would have been 50 quid dearer. They can't be that much better ! I've  never had problems with Bridgestones in the past 5 years, they suit the bike

I just changed from the BT57s to T31s -you'll notice a huge improvement !!
better to wear out rather than to rust out..

I had original 8 year old squared off Bridgstones & just changed for new Michelin PR5's cos that's what was on special offer at time. I immediately felt a difference & a he'll of a lot more confident. I'd just stick to manufacturers recommended tyres anyway, they spent a lot of money developing & testing that bike so I guess must have far better idea than me what tyre to fit. Plus I'm not likely to go riding the bike anywhere near the maximum limits for tyres etc

Fairly new PR4 on the back, but I need a new front tyre (dunlop roadsmart2 now), gonna choose a road5 for that I think.

I would choose another brand if anything is better but I suppose keeping it both with same brand makes sense somehow.

Hey there Kentcolin and Alan,

Anymore feedback on the T31s??

Who else has ridden with the T31s? Pro/cons?

Thanks!

PR5s on mine,just inspire confidence and unbeatable in the wet imo.My mk2 had Bridgestones on it when I bought it,fine in the dry but sketchy in the wet.But to be honest Ive put pilots on my bikes for a long time and will continue to do so.
