Initial Review, 1,000 Miles on Tires
April 17, 2014

Just bought these tires to replace my Kumhos. The Kumhos had fantastic tread life, but they kept skipping and not gripping when I put any extra pressure on the gas. I noticed an immediate difference when I installed the Potenza S-04's. I love to accelerate hard after a full stop, and the S-04's have reduced the skipping tendencies of my car by 85-90%. So far I love them, but I do worry about the tread life, which I understand will be less than that of the Kumhos. If I get 20,000 miles out of this set, I'll be happy.
