Traction is great in dry and especially wet conditions. Made the steering easier. Much better than previous Toyos and Michellins on the car at different times. No sign of wear yet.

My wife and daughter believed I put shocks on their car because of the varying texture consistency of the ride! Highly recommended to any who rides on highways for extended periods. Fuel economy was enhanced by two miles per gallon. Go for the purchase and save valuable time by going to purchase this product.

Looking for a Quiet Summer Performance Tire?

Wednesday, July 16, 2014 by Gary Stanley

Summer tires like the Michelin Pilot Super Sport and Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position are the tires of choice for many enthusiasts and drivers of high performance sports cars. These two tires are great options, and you can see the differences between them by reading, "Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position vs Michelin Pilot Super Sport."

While Max Performance Summer tires offer some of the highest levels of grip and handling on the market, there are quite a few drivers who would be willing to give up a little grip for a smoother and quieter ride. If this sounds like what you're looking for, check out the Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport and Continental ExtremeContact DW.

Both options provide great wet and dry grip, while still offering good ride qualities. The Bridgestone and Continental have good road feel and steering response that you would expect from a summer performance tire. Their asymmetric tread patterns keep the noise level low and allow you to rotate the tires for even treadwear. The Potenza RE760 Sport is currently ranked second in the Ultra High Performance Summer category, while the ExtremeContact DW sits in fourth in the Max Performance Summer category.

Just purchased these Potenza RE760 Sport tires and had was excited after reading reviews on here about the performance and the ride quality. Being a tire aficionado I was chomping at the bit to get a good run in with these tires. Now that I got to drive these I must say they do not disappoint at all. First run was down the highway with road noise and ride quality significantly better than the BF Goodrich G-force's. It just so happened to be absolutely pouring later on and the road was holding water. Got a top speed of 95 mph and never felt so confident in my 2001 BMW 525i. I had to get a good run in on the most twisty road I know with the slickness from the rain and found traction so good it felt like the car was on rails. With no mileage warranty and some spirited driving it'll be interesting to see how they hold up over miles but I must say that this tire can make your car feel like a new one with a big jump in tire manufacturer, Bridestone versus Goodrich.
