The Bridgestone Potenza RE960 A/S Pole Position is an Ultra High Performance All-Season tire offered in the Bridgestone tire line up, and is very competent in many areas. This tire has nice on-center steering feel and predictable handling characteristics. Wet and dry traction are strong for an all-season tire, and the tire has strong cornering stability. As a typical performance-oriented tire it is not the quietest or most comfortable tire in production, but that is not why you should be buying an Ultra High Performance All-Season tire. Winter traction on the RE960 is above average, and the directional tread pattern helps with moving slush and with high-speed hydroplaning resistance. When it comes to a "performing" performance tire, the Bridgestone RE960 A/S should be one at the top of your list!
