Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position
Initial Review: 8,000 miles on tires
October 31, 2012

I spent a lot of time researching tires a few months ago, I narrowed down to the Bridgestone or the continental AWS. I had originally choosen the Conti AWS because of price and its noise rating.I wanted a tire that was quiet and would stay quiet. I was replacing a full set of Falkens.Those tires were quiet for the 1 st 2000 miles and then became NOISEY as --------, and were DONE at 10000 miles(main wire belt was busted). I went to the shop to purchase the tires,but spoke to one of the installers (friend) about the two tires I was considering,he advised against the Conti's because of the. Soft side walls, the bubble on the first encounter with pothole.The warranty is very good (they replace without delay), but I don't need the harassment.I am 200% happy with the Bridgestone's. My trip down to Florida was extremely quite and at 8000+ miles it is as quite as the day I bought it. If you are looking for a quite tire that will restore the luxury in your luxure car, this is it.Your search is over, close your eyes now and buy.
