Michelin PR4s in the GT spec.

buy your tires online - I just put a new bridgestone on the back - I get 10k+ out of these tires routinely

42/42 tire manufactures recommend you use bike manufactures recommendations.

I typically get about 13000 from the BT23. Where do you buy online, I did a quick search, but was not able to find the BT23 available.

I have been running these, I can't tell any difference from the 023GT tires I used to run.

I was under the impression that the T-30 series was to be the "replacement" for the BT23 tires when Bridgestone changed the name used from BT to Just simply T for the sport touring tire.

Of some interest.
Keep in mind under Warranty any parts changed must be OEM and that includes tires.
This was the reason the BT020 remained quite a bit after it's demise was announced.
With a Extended Warranty period as long as 7 years there will be some overlap in availability.
Tire codes, particularly date, become critical at some point.
Code dates on Internet sales will be difficult to not available.

Best bet in my opinion is go with the current "moving" tire and I believe in the case of Bridgestone that would be the T series of tire.

That information will come from owners that have recently replaced tires and put some miles on the new, enough to judge at least Feel and Stick.

I am not familiar with the BT-022, are you sure that is what you were running?

The BT-021 was the worst motorcycle (front) tire I ever had the misfortune to buy.

I didn't care for the BT-023 either.

Plenty of folks swear by the BT-030 in the regular and the GT versions. I happen to prefer the Michelin PR3s and PR4s.

Brad, I'm running T30GT's both front and rear. On my second set, first set got 11,000 miles on rear and could have put 2,000 more on front, but I always change both together. I can't justify the extra cost for the PR4 GTs.
