Coming Soon: Bridgestone RE-71R Extreme Performance Summer Tire

Bridgeston Potenza RE71RThe Extreme Performance Summer tire category has become increasingly competitive in recent years. Bridgestone's Potenza RE-11 has been one of the most popular and well-reviewed tires, but they can't afford to rest on their laurels. The Potenza RE-11A provided a refresh in select sizes to enhance their competitiveness against their newest rivals. And while the RE-11A is currently at the top of the class for customer survey ratings, Bridgestone is already preparing to release an all-new design.

The RE-71R features a design with all-new compound, construction and tread design. How will it stack up against the competition? We're not sure yet, as Bridgestone has not started delivery. It also doesn't help that our test track is currently buried in snow! But rest assured, we'll be testing them as soon as we can. Slinging BMWs around a racetrack on ultra-sticky tires? Well, it's a tough job, but someone's gotta do it!

Stay tuned for future updates on this new, exciting tire from Bridgestone.

Hello. I have a 2012 BMW X3 xdrive 28i with m sport pkg. A stock set 245/50/18 x8 ET43. Wanting to do a widest aggressive square set possible on a 20 or 19inch. Tires must be a runflat. Im wondering if 275/40/19 or 275/35/20 all side would work. If not, Any recommendations for a wide square set? Also wanted to get the wheels flushed with the fenders. Not sure if you can help me about offsets. Thanks you so much!
