Glad I could help if you ever make it down to California I prefer Newcastle Brown Ale :)

I one wanted to really save you could get S21 front and S22 rear for $160 after rebate they don't seem to have any more rear S21s. By the way rockymountainatv processes the rebate for you just have to fill in the blanks on a email.

Weird, my 2018 came with Metzeler Racetech K3's, got a nail the other day and just the rear was ~240! I like the tire though and matching the front sounded like a good idea. Wondering if anyone else has experience with those and how they compare to the S22's?

My dealer specifically said not to use a 50% profile as it would upset the electronics.

All I am going to say is I LOVE THESE TIRES !!  So much better than the OEM S20's.

Bit of a play on Ferris Bueller, if you can afford them, please do, they are totally choice.

Bridgestone says 5% longer lifespan and 15% more grip when wet.

FAnyone here knows the optimal hot pressures and optimal temperature for these tyres?

I'm running 32.5F 33.5R and they're fine but a bit sluggish. Planning to try to up them to 33F 35R next ride out to see if there is any difference.

For running on the road (varying conditions and loads) I'd stick to the handbook pressures - 36/42 is as officially tested and validated by Bridgestone.

I would certainly use 36 front - dropping a couple of pounds on the rear is generally ok to say 40,   which I think works well for fast road riding.

Track would obviously be different.  Bridgestone cover the s20 evo track recommendations here :

30.5F / 27.5R
