"Successfully ran" means that I put 1000 miles on it before I got my 17" rear wheel and took it out of service. Bridgestone's website says, "Designed for sport-touring oriented riders who look for riding comfort, tire life, and tire design. One of the best selling sport-touring radial worldwide, Battlax BT-020 offers high-speed stability, long mileage, wet performance, riding comfort, and consistent performance." Riding it on the street, it performed well in all those touted areas. I'm not so sure it would be a good tire on the track.
