Who would you most like to see replace Bridgestone?

With Bridgestone announcing today that 2015 will be their last year as MotoGP tyre supplier after years as the sole choice of rubber in the class, there's a huge hole left to be filled in the premiere class in time for the 2016 season. Pirelli, Michelin and Dunlop - all with decades of racing experience - have expressed interest in returning...

Pirelli

 Its got to be Pirelli. They bring out some excellent tyres in WSB and with similar tyres which could be used  between WSB and MOTOGP It would be easier for riders to adapt between series and also it would give a good comparson between WSB and MOTOGP bikes. Its just a shame Dorna are dumbing down WSB Regs

rubber

get back to the 'tyre wars', pick your brand at the start of the season , stick with it, then the development flows down to us mortals.

The question was..?

 Really??? Who cares? The tyres will be specifically developed, astronomically priced and completely usless and unnatainable by 99.9% of the world. This provides no benefit and is interesting only in knowing who is providing them may win you a pub quiz. Where is the box for 'I have no interest or opinion either way as it makes no diofference to anything'.

 

Just sayin' ;)

 Any argument on this matter is hoopless. Bridgestone have retyred, so clearly there's no angle to put a spin on and no-one else wants a grip, only to get their ass pecked.

Put 'em all on shop-bought Cheng Shins. It was bloody good enough for us back in the day and who knows, even Edwards might be able to get the bloody thing turned...

POOR TYRE

 I must admit Pirellis work in WSB but I have them on my road bike and lost the front end last year and crashed and they have never inspired confidence like the michelins or bridgestones i have got on my other bikes
