Are they going to jack up their price crazily like when GR90 replaced GR80?

That's my question. Since they moved the manufacturing place to Thailand, will there be a reduction of price instead of increase?

Only time will tell...haha.

over price or not is subjective. if you dont value comfort, you will not buy such tyre. if you value comfort but feel is too expensive than it is either you have unrealistic expectation (want cheap and good) or stingy or you really cannot afford it.

I'm fine with the GR90. On my 2nd set. 

Don't see a point of getting GR100 if GR90 is still around.

 

After evaluating the competing tyres which have not no objective/subjective reviews on the net. Decided to go back to tried and tested.

Not cheap but over 3 yrs and i like the wet grip i get with this tyre even when it's run to 55k km.

Looking at the thread patterns construction. It looks like a break thru design from all other tyres I have seen.Especially the part where nature vacuum are created to suck out the air to reduce noise. Pretty amazing stuff.

But it may works well when new, but after wearing down would the thread patterns still works? [confused]

As you said, whether a product is overpriced or not, it is subjective. So no need to say people stingy or can't afford it.

 

There's a lot of comfort tyres out there, not just Bridgestone.

 

Why must one pay a premium for the branding?

 

My question is only if there is a reduction of price being passed down to customer since they moved the manufacturing place to Thailand for the same size? What's wrong with asking that? GR-90 was made in Japan.

Changed to the GR-100 eight months ago and is pretty happy with its performance. The ride is quiet and comfortable with good rolling momentum. Good and confident grip on wet roads.
