I researched tires because of the tramlining I was experiencing with my BMW ( the tendancy of this car to be hard to control in the grooves of the road). I would drift back and forth in the road ruts, and I needed to use 2 hands all the time. With these protenza 960as pole position rft's, this has completely gone away. These third generation rft's with the cooling fins ride so similar to non run flats, I would not consider non run flats. I can drive one handed again. They cause the car to be very stable, much lower noise than oe. I will definately purchase these again and recommend anyone having the problems I had, to consider these tires.
in addition to the tires, I had the front alignment changed just a smidge. I heard if you adjust the toe inward to the minimum specs, it would help with the tramlining. It did, it is great. I was considering selling my BMW but now will keep it. Love these tires.
The tires have no problems on wet roads, handle corners very well, and stop very well.
I have nothing but good things to say about these tires.
Way to go Bridgestone......
