Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position
Follow-Up Review: 49,000 miles on tires
I just put on a new set of these on my WRX. I rotated them regularly and swapped them out for blizzaks when it snowed. Overall mileage was 48k on these. One note though when the outside temp is low they make sounds and feel like the CV joints are bad when in reverse and turning the wheels.
Initial Review: 38,000 miles on tires
These tires are well suited for day to day driving. Not a tire for track events but a great tire that makes you feel safe in virtually all road conditions ... Excluding snow of course.
I have found that traction is very predictable and only at the very extremes of the vehicles abilities will this tire break traction.
I will most likely put these on my daughters accord as well since we both have dedicated snow tires as well.
