Writing about the Bridgestone Battlax BT 010 given 97% (160-70-17-H)
Driving on a combination of roads for 6 average miles
I had these 010's on various motorcycles when I lived in England, toured all over Europe. Fantastic tyre (Sorry. For American speller's TIRE )

Driving on a combination of roads for 6000 spirited miles
Dry grip for these tires is remarkable for a sport touring tire. Wet grip is also very good, only spun the rear up a few times and only at 80+mph while pouring rain. Wear seems like it is also way above average. For comparison I eat through a set of pilot powers in 3,000mi. and these lasted a hair over 6,000 still tearing up the California Canyons. Will buy again :)

Great tyres at a great price. Perfect balanced tyre for both road and the occasional track use.

Writing about the Continental ContiRoad Attack given 50% (170-60-17-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 4000 spirited miles
These tires left a lot to be desired. I bought into all the hype I read online about these tires and was very let down. Dry grip at full lean was scary at times... had the front slid way to many times to count.. on the plus side when it was sliding it was very controlable and I did not crash... wet grip was on par with all the others I have tried (powers, road 2's, BT 016, Ect) The wear on these tires was the thing that bothered me the most, at 3,000 miles the front was showing severe cupping and the rear was down to the wear bars... not very good for a sport touring tire. Would not buy again.
