Bridgestone Tires Now Available Through Turn One Racing

In addition to the Pirellis we offer, we’re excited to announce that you can now also purchase Bridgestone tires through Turn One Racing.

Of Course, we will continue to support and provide Pirelli's full line of Superbike Slicks, Diablo Super Corsas and Dragon Super Corsa Pros, as well as the ever popular trackday tire known as the DC3, but in an effort to continue to provide the highest level of goods and services Turn One Racing has expanded its tire assortment to include the latest Bridgestone track tires, DOT race tires, and slicks.

There will undoubtedly be a learning curve for us as we get up to speed on an additional kind of rubber, but between Tom, Joe, Chris, Yuri, and myself, we intend to put both the latest Pirellis and Bridgestones to the test!

Look for the Turn One livery painted bikes to be experimenting and pushing the limits as we enjoy adding another premier manufacturer to our list of available products.

Contact us for pricing, and yes ... Spring is finally here!

And for those who don't know Bridgestone's lineup, their "Trackday tire" which is a street/race combination, like the Michelin Pilot Power and the Pirelli DCIII is called the BT-002 RS, and those run $315 a set for 120/180, with trackside mounting and balancing included at no charge.

Their latest and greatest DOT race tire is the BT-003, and it runs $349 for the 120/180 combo, trackside mounting and balancing included at no charge.

They also have rains, slicks, and lightweight sizes, but just contact us if you have any questions.

Thanks

i don't see anything on your website about Bridgestones. Are you carrying the 250GP slicks as well? What pricing do you have on the 125/165 YCY combo?

Yes, we're offering the 250gp slicks for $347, which includes trackside mounting and balancing.

The website is being overhauled as I type, and should be finished any day now. It will have Bridgestones on it alongside the Pirellis.

Bridgestone was my tyre sponsor for my first race season and the company and guy that ran the midwest absolutely rocked! I did like pirelli's a little better, but the only reason I switched was b/c Butch talked me into it and Bridgestone stopped showing up to midwest events for a bit. I'm happy with both companies and now it'll be down to contigency and price for this coming season. Still trying to land corporate sponsorship, which would be golden. 10-15k, will go a long way to making this season.

i put a set of BT002RS's on my bike, in 190/55-120/70 to try them out. They were around $100 cheaper than i was paying for 2CTs in the same sizes, so i figured they must be worth a shot at that price.

congrats on the new venture T1!

The dual compound Pirelli DC3s in the 120/190 size are $351, and if you want a sneak preview of what's about to break for TurnOneRacing, check it out ...

http://www.turnoneracing.com/Tires/P...orsa-III-c100/

Also, the Bridgestone equivalent "track tire" with a race/street orientation is the BT-002 RS, which goes for around $315

All tires purchased through Turn One Racing receive trackside mounting and balancing at no charge.

What are we looking for on that page? You've sold DC3's at that price for a while right?

Regardless I can't wait to try out some new tires later this season.

Have you measured the Stones ( 120 / 180 ) on the wheels ( 3.5 / 5.5 ) yet ?


How are they dimensionally ?


Bear in mind I am set up for Michelins at the moment.

Actually the DC3s went up a little for 2009, and I'm just excited about our new website so I had to throw that link in there!

Hey Tom,
So far the Bridgestones seem to be about the same size dimensionally as the Pirellis, but as you and I know the Pirelli carcass is very soft, so the actual rolling diameter mid corner is difficult to estimate, and with the Stones I'm sure there will be a little figuring before we get the best set up. I'll look into the Michelin differences for you, are you on 180 or 190?

We're going to be doing a lot of side by side taste testing this year, as we'll still be offering the Pirellis we all know and love, but I'll probably be on the Bridgestones more often than not just because of the considerable difference in price.

Our "shop" is really Joe's garage in Rockford, and to a lesser degree, my garage in Mount Prospect. For the time being we're working out of our respective garages as we've put all our resources into the mobile shop and travelling storefront that is the Turn One Racing pit area.

Turns out with this economy, we probably made the right decision by not trying to bite off more than we can chew, as shops are dropping like flies and our low overhead is letting us grow.


No word on the BT-003 RS yet, probably won't get real dates on those for a while. Sort of like a new bike release, lots of talk but not much action at first.


Man, I can not wait to ride again, this off season has been wayyyyyyyyyy too long.

Come on Sun!

180..... we can mount a set up and measure the diameter for a baseline.

Hey Marshall, Tom and Joe:

Great improvement to your Turn One website! It really rocks, very professional and the "how to" stuff is the best I've seen! I'm impressed and hope you guys go far....great job!

Question:

If I want to buy something like a PCIII, can it be delivered to trackside and not get charged for shipping? No option for it in the shipping section.

Quick question about turnone racing. I won a free suspension set up through NESBA from you guys. What exactly does that include??

Sorry for getting off topic here.

Hey Tom,

Tell me exactly which Michelins you're running, I have a great Michelin resource who can answer some questions for me.


Hey Jim,

Thanks for the mad props, bro, we're really excited about it, even though there's still some little things that need doing. I'm glad you enjoyed the first two installments of the "Joe Knows" series about motorcycle maintenance.

We're planning on doing a whole series of "How to" articles like that, the next few will be a 520 chain and sprocket conversion, aftermarket brake line installation, and one on bodywork drilling and fitting.

Here's hoping 2009 is warm, sunny, and prosperous!

No worries, G2G, the "Sag setting and baseline suspension set up" you won includes a two page report we fill out on you and your bike. The first page are your sag numbers, which takes stiction into account, and give you a clear picture of whether your springs are right for you and your bike.

The second page is where we record all your suspension settings, after we've finished setting them to our preference, based on your feedback, your pace, and our opinion of how your bike should feel.

Then we go over all your settings with you, and send you out to see how you like it. After doing about 80 of these set ups for riders last year, by far the worst response we had was, "It's a little better."

Everybody else came back with a smile so big it looked like they had a coat hanger stuck in their mouth. I suspect you'll be really happy with the way we set it up for you.

If you haven't already gotten on the schedule, you should do it sooner than later. Saturday Blackhawk is already sold out, and I know we have at least two or three down for Sunday. We even have people locking down spots for Putnam already. And since we only do 4 or 5 a day, they tend to fill up quickly.

Absolutely, if you'd rather let someone else have their suspension set up that's no problem at all. Or if you'd rather cash it in for service work, I'm sure we can take $65 off a service repair order.

Just let me know what you want to do and I'll touch base with Tom and Joe about it.

I'm starting to see reports that the BT-003RS has now been released in NA. Can you confirm this and if so, how much for a set? (120/70, 180/55) Thanks!

Funny you should mention that, you'll never guess what I had in my hot little hands last night ... well, besides what you dirty minded folks are thinking.

Yes, I took delivery of the first sets of the BT-003RS, and they look positively delicious!

Still waiting on exact pricing,

On my way to Blackhawk today, back Monday. By then we'll have pricing info waiting in my inbox.

Can't wait to try them out for myself, but judging by how stoked people are about them I have a feeling it'll be a while before I get to spoon a set on for myself.

Guess I'll just have to run the slicks for now

Thanks for the update and I'll be looking forward to pricing info next week. Have a great weekend!
