Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

This first review is for TireRack. I ordered the tires by phone on Friday at about 11 am, Pacific Time. I was away from my house most of Saturday, the NEXT DAY, and when I returned, the tires were in my garage! Had them mounted and balanced this morning and drove to work..I was changing from the OE Goodyear F1 SuperCar tires. They had 40,000 miles (I avoid...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R

Got these to replace stock re-050. After 8 sessions NASA hpde 3 in utah the tires maintained steady temps and pressure (ran 33f 37r) even tire wear no rollover. Excellent steady state grip. They respond quickly to fast transitions without being nervous. Hard braking is sure, repeatable and steady with no rearend wiggles. They don't communicate as loudly when...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

Fantastic tire, precise, quiet, comfortable and just simply great handling. It provides great feedback without ever being noisy or harsh. Fantastic grip, on both, dry and wet conditions.Wears really fast, although that's to be expected given their UTQG rating and the fact I never try to change my driving style to protect them from wear. I'm about to purchase...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11

I absolutely love these tires. I've been buying them for 4+ years now and hugely prefer them over the Pilot Super Sports. You can't get better grip then what these tires give you. When I'm buying tires, I'm only looking for dry weather performance. These aren't bad in the rain by any means, but I take it really easy when the roads are wet so I don't want to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

I've owned the tires for one month and 1500 miles. After reading the other reviews, I agree with the superb handling and the quiet ride. I really like these tires over the stock Michelin's that came with my car. The handling really improved and the tires were much quieter. The jury is out on treadwear looking at other reviews and I will be updating this...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

When my OEM tires contiseals lasted about 50K, so I started to look for a good set of tires that would fit my car. First replacement I bought from local Costco Michelins pilot sport A/S3 as I (was) a big fan of Michelin brand. I drove on them about 300 miles and what I noticed that the were very noisy but with good handling response tires, so I took them...  Read More

Potenza RE-11 Positioned for Long Run at the Top

There’s no doubt temperatures around the country are at summer time highs. This time of the year is great for cookouts, hanging by the pool…and pushing your car’s traction and handling levels. And no tire is better suited for that in our Extreme Performance Summer category right now than the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11. Currently ranked the top tire in its...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R

This tire is awesome. You just know how special it is, from the moment you start driving...When you cross over any kind of painted surface in the road, you can tell just how sticky the tire is...it sounds like Velcro being ripped apart. I took a VERY SHARP highway exit ramp, at breathtaking speed, I thought I was going to be thrown out of the side window, a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion ATR

In the past I always would purchase the Bridgestone Revo's on one ton trucks vans ETC. This tire has far exceeded my expectations. It is very quiet for a truck of this size, the ride is so much better. Most of the time I have a trailer being pulled behind with another car on it.Very confident handling, I have not tried them in snow yet, but looking at the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L 422 Ecopia

Have been the best tires I have used, they have 134,*** miles on. It is my daily use car I travel 147 miles a day now for these winter I'm planing to replace them since they're almost on 20% to go.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS60

I swear by these tires in the winter. I have been using Blizzaks for about 10 years. This is my 10th set (we have 3 cars). They are not the best wearing tire but I don't expect them to be. I put between 15-20 thousand miles on all of my cars every year. I live in Pennsylvania - we get 100 degree summers, -5 degree winters, more rain than snow but when it...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

June 2016. I bought my car used, 18 months ago. It had a fairly new set of Bridgestone Potenza Pole Position tires. Dealer said they were a great tires for this car.i soon learned that the tires gave a very hard ride...I think because the tire wouldn't flex as much as my Goodyears that I have bought for all my cars during the last 25+ years. Also, to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11

I am on my 15th track day on this set of RE-11s and they are still going strong! I can't believe the durability, especially when you consider how much I have been purposely sliding the car around to learn its limits. The grip level has finally started to degrade, but as opposed to other tires which have a very sharp/sudden dropoffearly on, the RE-11 stuck...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

Bought a brand new 2004 Sentra SE-R Spec V in '03 and stuck with the stock Continental tires until I replaced them with these Potenza tires. OMG what a difference! Traction was amazing and these tires felt beyond great! They handled so well! I used to live near a larger angled intersection and by the time I was through with a sharp left turn, I could easily...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Have had two sets of Pilot Super Sports on my E90 and have been very pleased. The dry grip is tremendous, the wet grip is very good, and they even perform reasonably well when it gets cold (but no snow). I have a dedicated set of winter tires so these are on the car from April to November. I've gotten three solid summers out of them and they still have a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE960AS Pole Position RFT

4 years and almost 45k miles on my Speed3 and they'll do anything I ask of them except ice and snow. I don't care about that. Absolutely awesome in the Seattle rain and deep puddles. I've never felt out of control in any hard rain situation. Great 3 season tire. Would buy this series again soon. I still have 1/4 of tread left. They are getting a little noisy...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L 422 Ecopia

These tires perform as week as they did when they were new. I have 8/32s tread depth on all for corners. When they were installed I immediately notice a 10% increase in gas mileage. The ride quality and noise were great and only the ride quality has fallen a little due to the decrease in tread depth. I take this car all over the USA from Wisconsin to South...  Read More
