Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position
Follow-Up Review: 26,000 miles on tires
When new these were the best tires I'd ever owned. Absolutely great in the wet. But after about 20,000 miles they became incredibly loud. I also feel every little bump in the road. If you don't mind changing tires every 20,000 miles buy these. If you want them to last a little longer get something else.
Initial Review: 500 miles on tires
I've only had these tires for about a month now. But I love them so far. Great improvement over the OE Continental Contisport Contact3. Very responsive. Sticks to the road in dry or wet conditions. Best wet weather tires I've ever owned. Good omen when the guy who installed the tires came came out to tell me how great he thought the tires were. He was giddy over these tires (and his shop doesn't even sell this brand). I don't know what the treadwear will be. I got 32,000 out of the Continentals and the tire guy thinks these should get about the same.
Better than OE tire $60 cheaper what's not to like.
