Initial Review, 500 Miles on Tires
Based on all the positive reviews and test results, I replaced the OEM tires (Goodyear Eagle RS-A) with the Potenza RE970AS Pole Position. As expected, the higher load and speed rating (98W vs 94V) resulted in a firmer ride and road imperfections (potholes, etc.) were more noticeable, but the improved handling, tracking and steering response made up for it.
