I'm comparing to the oe glee fitment Bridgestones, are they 101/152s?
The difference was instantly noticeable from the first 50 yards. I went home to recheck the pressures. 10% reduced pressure helps ride quality but at the expense or unpredictable handling when pressing on.
The guys fitting them had trouble - two blokes, long tyre levers and a tyre machine and they still struggled to fit them!

Changed over from trail wings 1000kms ago, the A40s transformed the bike, confidence inspiring to the point of no chicken strips on the back tyre anymore. I don't get scared when it rains anymore either, they grip well in the wet. Should have done it sooner they made a good bike great.

I will not buy them again due to the harsh ride.

|griff010||Thanks mpom. Yes, I mistyped that. Meant TrailRider. Thanks for the info. I'll check out the PR4s as well.|

Am exclusively a street rider, also considering the TR, but now leaning towards the Michelin PR4, due to longer life, off setting its higher cost.

|griff010||I'm currently riding on the Avon Distanzeas that came on my bike from PO. I'm thinking of moving to the trailblazer when needed. Anyone know of a comparison. Are these basically the same tire with re-branded name? The description seems to fit the same bill overall.|

|philthunder||Here in UK I tried the A40 on my Stelvio. Much harder ride but good grip and good mileage on such a heavy machine. The TrailWings that I have had in the past were very poor grip in the wet and cold. Good mileage from the TrailWings but at the expense of risking your neck!|
