    Hi guys looking for some advice on Tyres.
    I have a gen 2 which came with a pair of Bridgestone T31
    The front has worn unevenly and was advised to change it.
    Having only done 5000 miles the back is still good for another
    2000 at least.
    My question is can I change the front for Bridgestone T32 as
    not too keen on having another T31 because of the wear issues?
    The T32 reviews say they are a better tyre.
    When I change the rear I will fit a T32.
    Many thanks George.  :763:

    "can I change the front for Bridgestone T32?"  Yes.

    As above, BUT, you could be short by a 1,000 miles in your assessment of life left in the rear.

    I'd be inclined to get them changed as a pair.

    ditto - the handling usually goes off well before you get to the legal wear limit and it is always nice to have that "new pair of tyres" feeling

    I've just taken off a BT32 because the front wore uneven and left some horrible steps on both sides. I've been a Bridgestone fan for quite some years but had a pair of road5's fitted to see how they go...
