    I've had T30 Evos for about 2k miles now. Not sure at first but feel much better now and wearing well.

    Yep 1 more thumbs up for the T30. I put them on late last year (replacing Pirelli Scorpions) and they have been excellent so far.

    My Scorpion Trails have done 5658 miles now and whilst the squared off pretty quick they've felt odd today. Just ordered a set of PR4s to go on Friday.
    I'd have maybe considered these T30s if I'd read this earlier. Was a massive fan of the Bridgestone 020s then they "new and improved" them to the horrible 021s. Not had Bridgestone since.

    I've not tried the T30s Hartley, but PR4s are really good in wet or dry, so you won't go far wrong with those.

    What are the T30s like in the wet gents?

    Agree with Jon. I would have gone for PR4's, excellent tyres, but offered a good deal on the T30's. You won't go wrong with PR4's.

    T30's have been good in the wet so far, but not had much chance to try them out in the wet Jon.

    Yep PR4 a good choice. I found the T30 excellent in the wet (some torrential downpours in the alps) and not short of grip. no scary moments even under heavy braking.

    Thanks for giving us your experiences with the different tyres guys.
    I liked the original fit Bridgestones and never had a problem with them, but these PR4's are a totally different kettle of fish.
    I really really like them, they just feel so much better for grip in the dry and are so much smoother all round with a lot less road noise, and i always use ear plugs.
    I haven't rode in heavy rain yet so i am looking forward to getting the same feel and confidence they seem to give others.
    Hope you find them good Hartley as i know you like to ride :164:.
    Ride safe all.  :028:  :031:
    keep it shiny side up !!!
