Bridgestone S22

Questions on the S22's
What sort of reviews are people experiencing with them in all weather performance and mileage on this rubber?
I found them for almost half the cost of PR5's and online reviews seem good.
What sort of experience are you having with them? Is there any real world comparison to the  PR5's ?

thank you
Ray

Road 5 are $$. I think Ill have to change my rear tire mid summer. Front one still looks like new. So Im thinking to buy another rear one(GT version) and once they are both done Ill change to another brand. I dont ride much in the rain or wet roads..

Yes they are but and  would be worth it if they do wear as good for me as others . with a constant ride / handling through out their life. I am just curious about the s22 since they are so less expensive.

Tighten it 'til it strips then back it off half a turn.

I've been using S21s and got about 2000 miles out of a rear on the 900.  They are absolutely awesomely excellent.  Everybody I know has them.  I have a mate who has a ZX10R and he went from 21s to 22s and he reckons he got more front end feel.  Bridgestone don't claim any extra mileage for the 22s just a different profile and increased wet grip.  I've S21s on the Z1000 now.   Same result. 
Z1000.  I had a 900 so you'll never get rid of me. NEVER!
