Falken Azenis RT615K Offers a Championship Winning Performance

The Falken Azenis RT6715K is the first tire from Falken that Tire Rack has ever offered. We are starting with a big hitter in that it is an Extreme Performance Summer option. It's designed as a street tire that is happy to go to racing. This tire has the new Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R in its sights in our survey results. Exhibiting strong wear potential with...  Read More

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

So far ( only 6M miles) the tires are excellent. Too early to tell regarding snow/ice the northeast has been relatively dry thus far. Ask me again in April. The tires are expensive but so far I am not disappointed.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Very happy with these tires. They replaced Bridgestone Potenza RE 70's. The Bridgestones were very noisy, hard riding and wore out in under 20k miles of average driving.Within days of buying the DWS-06's, we drove from Connecticut to Florida and I was very happy I made the change before we left. I went from a car that sounded like it had a bad wheel bearing...  Read More

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

This tire is a wonderful choice for the Tesla Model S for a high performance summer tire. It appears be built with care as my tire shop only needed to add one or no weights to each tire for balancing. They were amazed at this. Also, the tire has no siping or tread cuts at the outer edge. This means that the tires does not throw as many small pebbles as tires...  Read More

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

With 13k on the tires, they're about halfway to the wear bars. Wear is even side to side. Much better wear than some other report. Rears wearing a bit quicker than the fronts, as to be expected on a slot car twitching tail suspension like a well prepared Z3 suspension behaves like.Z3 has -2.5 camber front, Front toe 0.16 total toe. ~8 degree caster. -2.8...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11

They are a nice upgrade over the stock tires, and I've tracked with them for an hour or two total. I can attest to their longevity as they are going bald with over 27k miles on them. I have seen the reviews that they are not as sticky as the new RE-71R, but they cover two different markets, the newer filled a niche for people who like making times and as a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position

Great tire so far. I know that new tires tend to impress, but the pole positions are tremendous! Glad I did my homework on these. The traction and response are incredible. The noise levels are well within acceptable limits, and so is the uneven road surface reaction. Coming from the P Zero Nero, very noticeable improvement.... Great purchase   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport

This set lasted 15,000 miles of tire screeching, canyon crushing fury. There's no option for aggressive driving but that's what I do. I recently switched to dunlop dz102's and miss these. I should have stuck with potenza's, totally worth the 10$ difference per tire.They're also great for daily use and harsh weather. Definitely going back to these next time I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position

I have a 2015 Stage 3 Roush modified to 800hp, the stock Cooper tires had zero traction and were best suited for drifting. I have had the 970AS before on my Mustang and loved them so this time I went back to them and love them all over again. Great treadwear but most of all they stick. I always run 36 front and 34 rear to offset engine weight and these...  Read More

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

Tremendous upgrade from the OEM Goodyear LS-2. This tire is much softer, better handling, and produces less tread noise. This is a great match for the X3 with few options at 19 inches.   Read More

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

I purchased these tires to run on the front of an H-Street class Honda Civic Si. They were used in a final local event (wet) and the state championship (NCAC) in November which I won and was the highest PAXed FWD car. After two events this year they are already corded about 60 runs total. Wear is horrible on this camber limited car, which does have Honda...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11

I purchased these tires because the Hankook RS-3's in my size were on back order. I have used the RE-11's for about 8 autocross events and 5 track days without any miles in rain/wet conditions. These tires grip incredibly well and handle the heat of 30-minute track sessions without any issues. Their break-away characteristics are predictable and...  Read More

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

I bought my first set of these for my Malone Stage 2.0 tuned Jetta TDI Sportwagen because the price and reviews made it a little more favorable than the Pilot Super Sport. I was very impressed with how much grip these tires have as the TDI is putting out 333tq to the front wheels. This means hook-up is very challenging.I needed new tires for my 911 and I...  Read More

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

I was looking for a replacement for the OEM run-flats on my 2014 corvette. Settled on the Pole Positions and I have been pleasantly surprised with the performance of these tires. They bring out much more of the performance capability of the 'Vette. They are quiet and extremely smooth, and well priced. With the OEM tires, the rear end had a tendency to step...  Read More

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

Good autocross tires. I'm glad Bridgestone is coming out with 195-50-15 size this season to get data with 15x6 wheel. Bought the set last year and have driven them to and back from events just about under 1000 miles and show about 35% of tread life. The set has about close to a little over 200 autocross runs.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11

I have used two sets of these tires on my Porsche 981 and in 50 track days at 7 tracks and 20 events, I progressed on track with PCA HPDE from Green to Black using these street tires. Even my instructors said, I am one of the fastest drivers when I was in White run and were surprised I was not running R compound. I cannot say enough about these tires, the...  Read More

Best Summer, All-Season and Winter Tires for the Latest-Generation Audi A7

The Audi A7 is an executive level mid-size four-door hatchback, or as Audi prefers "Sportback" car. Starting at just under $70,000, adding this thoroughbred to your stable could be a sign that you have made it. With less than a thousand sold a month, you will likely own the only one in the parking lot at work. Since the 2012 redesign, Audi seems to have used...  Read More

Making the New 2015 Ice Silver Metallic Subaru BRZ Premium Better

I liked my 2013 Honda Civic Si because it was a fun, quick and capable car with a moonroof. While the Civic Si was nice, it simply did not stir my soul the way my old BRZ did. So I said goodbye to my Civic Si and picked up a 2015 ice silver metallic Subaru BRZ Premium. The changes Subaru made to the BRZ in 2015 are outstanding. A shark fin antenna gives the...  Read More

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

Not sure how much is car based or tire based, BUT, these things are phenomenal for what I bought them for. I was a little disappointed in tread life as I only get about 8K-10K out of a set of rears (fronts wear much longer about 2-1). Ride quality was not too bad given the car they were on, but then again these aren't luxury touring tires. In the morning...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE050A

These are the only tires I've had any experience with on my car. Now that it's time for new tires, I can't see spending that much money on tires used only for summer driving (I have snow tires for winter). If the price were better I'd probably would get the same thing, but then I'd never know if I can get a better ride with different tires.   Read More
