I've been a Mich guy from day one.
I'm excited to see what will come to the consumer market from the change

Bridgestone is still a more superior street tire.

Michelins have always performed well on the track.

I'm not saying one is better than the other, it's just what I have only ran. My first set after the dealer installed Metzlers, was a set of Mich 2cts, I was happy with them and stayed with them.

From one article I read it sounds like Mich wasn't full hearted into picking up the contract. I hope they can pick up with the level of performance that Bridge leaves off from. I hate to see the problems that came from the tire issue at Phillip Island again

I personally like most tires...unless it's a Shinko. I like the best deal that I can get not that loyal to brands of rubber. Round, sticky, in my size and cheap works for me.
