Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport
Initial Review: 6,000 miles on tires

Overall a pretty good tire. Car is mostly driven on weekends and when the weather is nice. Occasionally goes to autocross. Can't really comment on wet performance, as I very rarely drive the car in the rain, and can't really speak about noise level as I can't hear tires over my exhaust. Handling of this tire seems to be very crisp. Lateral stability is excellent. My big complaint is a lack of forward bite. I seemed to have more forward bite with my BFG G-Force Sports, which were 20mm narrower. Granted, no street tire is going to be perfect with 430+ lb-ft to the wheels.

Overall, would recommend this tire for a mostly street driven sports car. Will probably be looking somewhere else for my next set, likely just to a softer compound to get more grip under acceleration.
