Bridgestone Potenza RE960AS Pole Position
Bridgestone RE970AS Pole Position
The Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position is the model that will be phasing out its predecessor, the RE960AS Pole Position. While the RE960AS Pole Position excelled in handling characteristics and dry and wet traction, the RE970AS Pole Position is designed to provide additional traction in adverse conditions like snow and ice, beyond what its predecessor could accomplish. In our initial testing, we have found that the newest Ultra High Performance All-Season tire from Bridgestone compares well to the RE960AS Pole Position and holds its own against the competition's best in warm weather climates. With an initial glance, you can see that Bridgestone maintained the utilization of a heavy directional tread design. This helps retain the outstanding wet traction that the RE960AS Pole Position was known for. Along with this, Bridgestone kept the 40,000 mile treadlife warranty. While some Ultra High Performance All-Season tires provide greater treadwear ratings, customers of the 960 and the 970 will appreciate the increased handling characteristics that the Potenza lineup has been known to offer. Building a reputation as being one of the sportiest Ultra High Performance All-Season tires on the market, the 970 looks to offer its customers a wonderful blend of handling, treadwear and overall traction. Currently available in 24 sizes, the Bridgestone RE970AS Pole Position has been developed and released for customers with sportier coupes and sedans. As the RE960AS Pole Position is also available in a run-flat model, Bridgestone offers many Ultra High Performance All-Season tires for your vehicle.
