Re: BF T/A's vs Firehawk 500's-Which one to go with?
Well, if you decide to go 60 series, you're buying T/As; no Firehawk Indy 500 in that size (at least in US catalog).
You can search "firehawk" here; plenty of folks have them and like them.
You can go to TireRack.com, search tires by size using the 225 70 14 size, and then compare the two side by side. Tire Rack has subjective ratings for each tire, and the Firehawk does score better subjectively.
That said, I don't like them. IMO, modern tread designs on a 1st gen look okay in the sizes where they are, by default, necessary (like the 16, 17, 18, 19, etc size wheels). I just don't like that tread design in a 14 inch or 15 inch. But lots of people do like them.
