Bridgestone says its supposed to thanks to multiple compounds while being stickier overall, but we'll see I guess. Hoping the softness will be a help with the temps falling too, making warmed up tires a more feasible reality.
I have the BT-003's front and rear on my X. Awesome tire... tons of grip. I think I have about 1500 miles on them and they are looking pretty good. As a reference, I got about 3000 miles out of the stock tires, and actually should have changed them sooner since the rear was practically a slick. And just an FYI, from what I hear the BT-003 isn't that great in the rain, although I have no experience there so far.
