New Bridgestone for the X-ADV 750

I seem to wear the sides off my front Bridgestone in approx 3500 miles while the rear will last around 5000 —

As I understand it the Dot on the tyre wall should be fitted at the valve and that was where it was on the original tyres which needed a minimum of balance weights. Bikers come from all over to have their tyres fitted by my local tyre guy who – it would appear – doesn’t ‘do’ dots – pops the tyre on any old how and uses lots of weights to balance the thing.

I may be an old fusspot but I think I would prefer the dot fitted by the valve if it means a minimum of balance weights are needed —
