Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position
Initial Review: 1,000 miles on tires
I use these as winter tires on my WRX. For an all season they are pretty grippy and work well in cold temps. However, they are fairly soft in the corners and do not provide the steering response of a summer tire. I do recommend these for winter tire use in light snow areas. They still retain the majority of the cars sporting characteristics.
This tire is fairly heavy at 28 pounds which can I can feel during acceleration.
