Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position
Follow-Up Review: 49,800 miles on tires
I have driven the Bridgestones on snow covered roads and they have provided me with adequate performance. I am sure they don't have the traction of an winter tire but I am willing to sacrifice the little bit of the advantage of winter tire for the awesome dry performance.
Initial Review: 2,000 miles on tires
Bridgestone potenza RE970AS are the best handling tires I have ever had on my BMW 335xi. The first were the stock tires Bridestone Turanza runflats. The second were B/F Goodwrench super sport. These are older tires and they have definately gotten better over the years. I have only been in a dusting of snow but the Bridgestone potenza RE970AS tires performed well. Will check back later with my comments when I have had them in deeper snow.
