Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position
Initial Review: 1,000 miles on tires
July 20, 2012

These are the best tires I've ever purchased. Various past tires that I've purchased for a 2001 Maxima SE and a Thunderbird Super Coupe have included Goodyear tires (RS-A, GT+4, GTII and Eagle Aquatred) and Bridgestone tires (Turanza LS-V, Turanza Serenity, and Potenza GO19). I put these Bridgestone RE970 Pole Position tires on my wife's 2006 Acura TL, and I could not be more impressed. The car corners better and has incredible dry and wet traction. Driving fairly aggressively, I've yet to hear even the slightest squeal from them. Even in the rain, I can accelerate hard and the tires never slip. Not only do they have superior performance to the original equipment tires (Bridgestone Turanza EL42), they also have a smoother and quieter ride. I'm not easily impressed, and I truly can't get over how pleased I am with these tires. I give them my highest recommendation.
