My love of Bridgestone started when I got my first with tubeless tyres. You to accept this review as being somewhat biased as I always liked Bridgestone and I am known for brand loyalty

talked with a few friends which tyres to fit onto the SLR and of everyone has thier own opinions. One who enjoys much off-roading the Continentals as they have a knobbly tread pattern and well in the mud. Another Avon Gripsters as they good grip and good

He strongly warned me off Bridgestone poor grip and heavy I looked around this net and came to realise that choice among the quality is based mostly on opinion and loyalty rather than hard facts. And like all other reviewers I stuck what I know, especially as the were well priced.

I do a bit of off-road riding. Not really mud-plugging as the SLR is really a road with off-road ideas and is too to be pulling out of boggy marshes.

are mostly on, semi off road The pattern is chunky but with areas of contact for the road. perform averagely in the wet and well in the but then so do most tyres.

It is deepest darkest winter at the of writing abut I have the tyres don’t warm up in use. I am used to more road tyres though so I it’s all relative. Hopefully the running will help last longer. As for mileage, time will tell.

add to this page these when I know them!.
