For this example I used Bridgestone S21 Hypersport tires in the most common sportbike sizes

FRONT TIRE [2wheel.com]
- 120/70-17

REAR TIRE [2wheel.com]
- 180/55-17

2Wheel.com is offering instant $10 "2Wheel Cash" for creating an account (free) with them.
Bridgestone $50 rebate can be found HERE [2wheel.com]

Total after $10 off and $50 rebate
$133.42


Also one of those "frugal" CB sites gives you 8% back making this $118 for a set OMG

Other Bridgestone tires are offered in the rebate and can apply to these same coupons/CB.

i still have my brand new s21 tires stacked in the corner from the last promo that i haven't put on my bike yet so i don't even know how well they run. i just got the $50 prepaid card a couple of weeks ago. i had problems getting the rebate. at first it was denied. then after i called, they resubmitted it. all i am saying it, go to the website and keep checking on your rebate or you might not get it.

I have a set of Dunlop sportmax q3's from the last slick deal and I'm thinking getting these. These any good for tracking a 600 supersport bike?
if your not running in A you'll be fine

I have submitted many tire rebates through various companies and have found Bridgestone one of the easiest to work with. They handle their own rebates instead of outsourcing to another company like most tire retailers. Sometimes the employees checking them are incompetent, but if you submit the correct info there are rarely any issues.

I replaced my Q3's with these a few months/4k miles ago. These have just as much grip on the street and twisties, and seem to be lasting about twice as long as the Q3. All around excellent street tire as the "S" series has been for quite some time.

This is a very new tire and they sell very well, I've ordered them for 2 of my bikes so far and each time they were no more than a month from the mfg date.

How much dirt and how much street riding do you do?
I can say if you do much street riding avoid those shinkos...

The mfg date should not be of any concern to you, it will not make a rats ass bit of difference, that's squid/forum yap. Tires that have not been run, i.e. still have mold release do not harden for years, unless left in the sun or frozen in the winter.

Once you get tires if you put them in a garbage bag tied off, kept indoors they'll last for 5 years easy.

I run in the A group at the track and am still using some of my "bagged" inventory that's 6 years old and can tell absolutely no difference from 3 month old tires.

These S21's are good tires, they stick better than Q3's when cold on a 50 degree day in the first 3 miles or so. I only ride super twisty canyon roads (Malibu Hills) and my tires only last 2 weeks before I wear the sides out.

I've tried every tire out there and always come back to Pirelli Corsa's, the Super Corsa's have less tread than the Corsa's so last 2 days less and are no better on the street. That said, the S21 fronts lose grip when you are just through the wear bars on the sides 80% wore, I can run Corsa Fronts until the tread is completely gone on the sides. The S21 rears are not as pointy as the Corsa's so take more effort to go full lean but unless you are on super twisty mountain roads you'll never know the difference.

Corsa's hands down are the best but it all comes down to bang for the buck, I'll buy Q3's or S21's if the price is low enough and I just throw the S21 fronts away when they are 80% gone on the sides (centers are virtually new). The rears I always run to the cords on all these 3 tires.

Hope that helps some of you.

that's good to know; i think i would give them another try. for my previous rebate i thought it had been awhile so i checked and when i saw Status Not Approved i gave them a call. they actually said they don't know what happened and they'll resubmit it. in the future, i'll keep my eye out just in case; im actually looking for tires for next riding season.

I bought a set of S21's at Cycle Gear for $200 last month. When I read the fine print on the MIR, it states "Tires must be MOUNTED during purchase period".

Have you used this exact rebate before? The CG employees thought the MIR wouldn't go through if the purchase and tire mounting weren't on the same receipt.

Definitely do not need to be mounted, or at least you don't have to show proof of mounting. Every Bridgestone rebate, MC and car, say that same thing. Basically they mean you can't go to a tire shop and put them on layaway/backorder and get the rebate before you actually buy the tires.
