Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position

I purchased these tires because of experience with the last generation of them. These are just as great in any weather, but road noise is a lot. By the way great in rain.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

Replaced the OEM installed Bridgestone Potenza RE050A tires with only 13,000 miles on the clock and installed the new Michelin Pilot 4S tires. I've had prior experience with some Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 tires, as well as two sets of Michelin PSS tires on different cars, and Michelin knocked it out of the park again.Summary = Superb traction and handling...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Rival S

Last season, I was going to buy the Bridgestone Potenza Re71r but they were back ordered for 2 months so I decided to go with a set of the Rival S for autocross. What a great tire! These tires handle great in the dry and handle well in wet conditions. I dont recommened driving in heavy rain, that can be sketchy. But for an extreme performance tire i was...  Read More

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

These tires are really nice lots of traction during wet and dry weather. I noticed these tires work well during heavy rain mine also road smooth and no annoying road sound. But the one down fall is they wear out fast you might get 15k miles out of them if you drive hard on them but Well worth it.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

I purchased a set of Driveguards from my local Cadillac dealership and they installed them with a road force balance. The car originally had Bridgestone Potenza Run Flats. My car now finally rides like a Cadillac because of these driveguards. They are absolutely better than the Potenzas in every way except for cornering. Don't get me wrong my car still...  Read More

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

I had Cooper touring tires and I wanted more out of my life. My car also wanted more. I decided to get these tires and honestly they're the best tires ive ever driven. They grip good in the dry and pretty good in the wet. This isn't a soccer mom tire. Honestly after putting them on my Nissan Altima 2001 SE Sedan 2.4L 4cyl, my car feels like it's much faster.I...  Read More

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

I have always bought Bridgestone tires for all of my vehicles. Would highly recommend them for all cars and trucks in all driving scenarios. The original equipment Michelin MXM4 that came on the car barely got to 30K miles. I hope I have great use of these Bridgestones as I have with every set I've purchased before... will review again after putting some...  Read More

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

The grip and handling is outstanding in wet and dry conditions. These tires dramatically improved my confidence on the road. They are slightly stiffer than the OEM tires, but it was worth it in terms of safety. At 30,000 miles, the tread is down to 6/32 inch; it looks like I will get about 35,000 miles total. This is based on mostly freeway driving in urban...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I drive a 2012 Audi S4 and the tires given to me from the dealership I originally bought the car from were Bridgestone Potenza Pole Position All Seasons. Those tires were very noisy while driving had decent grip in dry and wet conditions but were AWFUL in the snow. I repeat AWFUL in the snow one slight tap on the brakes in light snow and you were skidding...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

I am very, very pleased with this tire. I transitioned from some Bridgestone Potenza's which were excellent summer tires and the idea was to get a great all-conditions tire. I am a first responder in a city with poor road treatment in the snow. Within two weeks of purchasing this tire I experienced ice and snow conditions which were very uneasy on the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ (H- or V-Speed Rated)

At long last, I've found my tire: an ultra high performance all-season tire that optimizes the performance of Audi's Quattro AWD on trips to the mountains, without numbing the car's handling and steering response on the dry roads that dominate daily driving here in LA. I've only had the Michelins a couple weeks, but immediately took them on a 1,000 mile road...  Read More

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

I have only driven these on dry days(only time I take my car out). But they are amazing so far. I have a full exhaust on my air cooled 911 so the car is noisy itself. I don't hear any tire noise. I'm coming off Continental sport contact tires and these blow them out of the water in terms of grip. I can't seem to break the rear end loose anymore even pushing...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE050A

These tires were the original tires on my Z . It's nit my daily driver but when I do drive her I don't baby it. My commute to work is 65 miles one way and half of them are on twisty roads love the grip and stopping characteristics of the tire. Would not consider any other tires,   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

I purchased these tires after reading the online reviews about this tire and I have been nothing but impressed so far. These tires are replacing a set of Bridgestone Potenza RE 970 UHP (235/45 WR 17) tires for my 05 Acura TL with the 6 speed manual transmission. I have only had them for 1,700 miles so far but they have been a noticeable improvement over the...  Read More

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

I bought these tires to keep up with my friends focus ST on back roads and mountain roads. The amount of grip versus the tires I had on before is incredible. Road noise is tolirable, not too bad unless I had the back seats out. Really likes to stick to Little Rock's and pebbles and kick them up so you might hear that. It completely enhanced the entire...  Read More

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

I had this tired for about 4 months now and all I can say is they perform extremely well in the dry vs my all season stock tires and even perform well in the wet as well. A lot more grip vs my all season tires but rides a little harsher but that a trade off and can also that I have upgrade coil overs as well. So far they are great tires but I do notice maybe...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport

I have a staggered set up on this vehicle (245/35/19F-275/30/19R) and they have provided the best bang for the buck for daily driving of any other brands that I have ever purchase. I do not race the vehicle so I cannot comment on that aspect of driving. Bridgestone has discontinuing this model and I truly think that they will regret they did.   Read More

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

Mixed feelings about this tire. 1st off I mainly track the car and drive it there with these same tires. Man does this tire grip. It's also very responsive with great feedback. I was able to out corner way better cars than mine because of the tire, complete transformation. The downside is they wear really fast. 3 track days and 3500 miles and they are...  Read More

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

Had Michelin PSS for 18,000 miles. They were down to wear bars. Replaced with Pole Positions. Fabulousvride, low noise considering Max performance summer rubber. Overall handling is 95% as good as PSS. Wet traction is better than PSS, and ride quality is same or better. Car handles and tracks perfectly. Running factory psi specs of 35/36. Wear rate at 1,700...  Read More
