Dunlop Sportmax Q2 vs. Bridgestone BT-003. Opinions?

Just wanting anyone who has an opinion on the Q2 or BT-003 to give me feedback on the tire. Both are dual compound and reasonably priced. I'm not going to be riding too hard, maybe a couple of track days and the rest will be street riding.

Good feedback?
Grip?
How many miles can I get on the tire?

My previous tire was the Diablo Corsa III. While I love the grip and feedback, I'm looking for something more reasonbly priced and something that may last a little longer.

I just came off of a set of 003s, 4k miles. Made the switch to the Q2s because they were only 200 bucks but man I'm regretting it :headshake

Why are you regretting the switch? What are the pros and cons? I only have experiance with Michelin, Metzeler, and Dunlop Q2 and te Q2 is far superior over the Metzeler and Michelins...

it's not that I dont like the Q2s, I do. The bt-003s were more confidence inspiring. The Q2s are sticky as hell but I just dont trust them as much. They take more to get them into the turn, but once they are there its on rails. Where as the BT-003s are on rails the entire time

Different worlds.

I've got a set of Q2's just sitting on the shelf. I wanted to try them, but I just can't make myself. They probably need to go into the classifieds.

were both brands the same tire profile in the rear? that will change how they feel when you first go to turn in initially......with any tire. BUT i understand what you're saying cause when you've used a tire for a while and gotten use to how it feels and where your limits are and then you swap to something else......it's like you have to try and figure out what they're doing compared to on the first set you almost knew what to expect before it happened.........this happened to me when i went from the mich's to the metzlers that came with my bike.I think they're all damn good tires, just depends on how you ride and what you like. that's what it boils down to, never skimp on price when it comes to your tires though cause that's the only thing keeping you from taking a blacktop bath!!!!!!!
