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 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-71R

Best street tires I have ever experienced by a long shot. Traction is absolutely phenomenal... Longevity remains to be seen and they can be a little loud on some surfaces but overall I would recommend them very strongly!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500

I was looking for a decent tire for my daily driver that occasionally sees a track and canyons. I initially was going to go the tried and true Michelin Pilot Super Sports. Glancing over the TireRack website I see a tire I have never seen before, the Indy 500. I was attracted to the tread design and the specs was what I was looking for. Better yet they were...  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 Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

Recently bought these for my 2003 G35 coupe w sports package/6-speed manual. On a trip to Tennessee through lots of amazing backroads and these tires wouldn't give up. Great handling, good feedback, quiet enough and decent ride for the handling prowess. Could not get over how good they were. Added bonus is that wet traction seems to be quite good. Strongly...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11

Drive only HPDE Mustang 2011 with a full roll cage. Like to drive in both the rain and dry this is why I bought a extreme performance street tire. This is a fantastic tire for track use, I have driven 14 track days on this same tire with very little wear and it looks like it has a fair amount of life in it yet. Have been to tracks such as Road America,...  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 Potenza S-04 Pole Position

I wanted to get rid of the run flats that were on my BMW. I researched and came to 3 main tire options for what I needed and wanted. Michelin pilot SS, Bridgestone PP S04, continental dws super. I read how great the Bridgestone ranked and going head to head against the top dog in this category being the Michelin pilot super sport, these tires deserve mention...  Read More

My car is used for solo events exclusively and I could not be happier with the tires.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I love this tire. I have gone through 5 sets of them (that I can remember) on various cars over the years. Hyrdoplaning resistance and traction in inclement weather is amazing, and dry grip is very good. In comparison to Bridgestone Potenza RE 960 AS tires, I feel that these Continentals have slightly less grip in dry conditions but are much better in rain...  Read More

Best handling tire I've ever experienced. Better than I expected in the wet.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE97AS

This tire came OEM on my 2016 VW GTI. Would buy them again. Car tracks perfect with them, they balance nice, handle nice. I drove in a rain storm where I could hardly see the cars ahead with no hydroplanning. Have noticed no tire noise out of the ordinary. They come in a current great price at $87 at Tire Rack in my size. I have only 3K on mine, but based on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE050 RFT

These tires came new on my 2015 MX5 Grand Touring. I love the handling that they provide in the twisties and the highway ride is surprisingly smooth and quiet. I do not autocross my car, nor do I drive it in foul weather if I can avoid it. For my spirited backroad driving and vacation use, these Bridgestones are excellent. We took our car on a 2300-mile trip...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Direzza DZ102

I did quite a bit of research from like minds in my car community and this tire was one of the preferred models. I have been quite surprised with how well it corners. It really has tremendous grip off the line and in the corners. Granted my HP is only 125 but I used to break all season Bridgestone Potenzas loose all the time in the past, especially when...  Read More
