Bridgestone S11 Mounting

Postby MJSantos » Mon Sep 27, 2010 7:58 pm



Need help. Just got my new tires in. Looking at the sidewall the only thing that resembles a rotation mark is this, first picture. If this is their identifier then the tread would look like this from the back of the bike. Am I correct on this?

Great! I sure didn't want to get them mounted and full of Dyna Beads and find out they were backwards.

I know they are an inexpensive tire but I put them on after reading a few reviews. The bike had sat for a few years and needed everything including an engine so $$ played a part in my choice. Have about 3000 miles on them and they are great. I am a weekend guy and never go out in the rain so can't tell you about wet weather handeling but in dry they are great. Good luck!!

Since I'm completing a resto on this bike I couldn't see big $ tires initially. Want to make sure it's going to be alright so I'll stay close to home for awhile. If I get 1000 miles then I got my monies worth out of them.
