OH NO - Another Tire Thread (Bridgestone A41 Sale)
« on: March 09, 2019, 12:50:13 PM »
I hope this doesn't break forum rules - Mods feel free to squash if it does.

For those who favor the Bridgestone A41, Rocky Mountain ATV in the USA has them on a killer sale right now.  (A SET for under $250 with free shipping) 

Disclaimer:  I, personally, have never tried the A41, bought I got excellent service out of two sets of A40s.  I did order a set.  I thought seriously about ordering two sets.  I might go back and do so.

I don't know if a link is fair game here, but you can Google, right?

That's it.  Good luck if interested.

I use A41's and like them, I'm sure you won't be disappointed especially as you liked your A40's. I am soon to replace my front A41 with another, it has kept its shape well for its full tread life.

2nd puncture for me in 13 months of ownership today, a big nail in my newish rear A41, luckily repairable. The TPMS did it's job nicely and I managed to get to a petrol station to top it off and get to a dealer 10 minutes away for a puncture repair. It was a larger (quicker) air loss than my last puncture, the on-screen pressure value of 20 psi was in red by the time I got to the petrol station.

Thanks for the update!  And if the front A41 has kept its shape well throughout the treadlife, than it seems Bridgestone may have fixed one of the A40s few flaws. 

I AM looking forward to getting rid of the very disappointing Tourance NExts on the bike now.  Big mistake replacing A40s with those ...

I have, they suck. Didn't get 8k klms from a rear. With the A40 13k klms+. Pirelli Angel now over 10 k klms and still plenty of meat on it. Front Pirelli Scorpion Trail 23 k klms and probably got a couple left...loaded and 2 up always.

Well now, I have been told:
 
I will like them
they suck
they won't last 5000 miles
they went over 8000 miles.

Guess that makes it an official tire thread now ...   

Seriously, all comments still welcome.
