Any idea of the roll out measurement for either of the 023's?

According to them, Bridgestone doesn't make a GT that fits the ST. The front GT is 17 inch.

You are misinformed I have ran both the standard and currently the GT, we are talking about the front tire correct? Mine is 18

Thanks - in my talks with Bridgestone, albeit a year or two ago, they said the correct tire for the ST was the non-GT, and in any case, they didn't make a GT that fit.

I see from your photo (thank you), that in fact they now make a GT that fits. Odd it doesn't show in their charts (above taken today from their web site).

Would you mind snapping an image of the tread pattern? Two reasons, I'd like to see the wear, and if it is the same GT pattern on their web site (in case I go shopping I'll know what to look for when scanning racks of tires).

Sheesh - they even have a GT for the rear. And to think I have an extra set of non-GT waiting to be installed. Dang.

The STD Front BT023 on the right, it has about 4k miles on it the GT on the left a little over 8k it seems to be wearing better than the standard no flat in the middle of the tread. I don't know if the rear CT had anything to do with that or not. The standard BT023 was used with a BT021 rear.

Ignoring the minor flat spot, the 023 looks like it was wearing pretty evenly; though you don't seem to lean as far as I do.

The 023GT looks like its wearing quite well, just normal straight driving wear down the center; and for 8k plenty of tread to the markers.

Thanks for the shot. Me thinks my next tires will be GT's.

A lot depends on weather you boots are pointed up or down.
