Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position
Initial Review: 12,000 miles on tires
December 17, 2012

This tire is so much better than the factory Michelin's. If I would have had an idea they were this good I wood had trashed the Michelin's long ago. They have dramatically improved traction in all conditions with the biggest improvement being in the wet and light snow. The Michelin's were so bad I considered them unsafe, my wife noticed the difference the first time it rained. When I'm by myself I am an extremely aggressive driver and I love the improved cornering and braking with the Bridgestone's, actually everything. The only drawback is they need to be rotated regularly or they start to develop a lot of road noise. If your like me and consider your tires to be a key safety component on your car, you will appreciate these tires.
