203 and 204 Bridgestones are a good street tire for the TW. They last about twice as long as the stock tire too.

Well, the TW203 will outlast the TW32 by a factor of 3:1 to 4:1. Mine has 20,000+ miles and is not worn out. The TW43 will outlast the TW204 by about 50%. I got about 10,000 miles out of mine, and I get about 15,000 miles out of a TW34.



Cheng Shin, Michelin, Dunlop, and Shinko also make street tires, but not all are available in all markets. All have good reviews.

Phelonius, what tire pressure do you run in the front and back on those Bridgestones? I just bought my first TW and it came with a set that I'm going to run for commuting around town. Do you vary from the manufactures suggested pressure at all?

Thanks!

How does everyone find the Shinkos? I just got a set and am getting ready to install them. I do mostly street driving (85%)



Thanks

On my V-Strom I found a TKC knobbie in front and a street duel sport tire (Tourance) on the rear worked great on and off road.
