Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus

I bought a 2017 GTI Sport for one reason only: Carving up back roads and on/off ramps. I bought these tires to replace the OEM Bridgestone Potenza RE97AS 225-40R18I ones that my car came with. I found traction under acceleration to be lacking, and just wasn't as dazzled by the car as I expected to be. I got a flat early on, and took that opportunity to rush...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R

I drive an 03 Z06 Vette. It's my track car but it is street legal, I drive it to/from the track. It's modified for the track in terms of suspension, cooling, brakes etc. Drive train is stock. I do about 25-35 track days per season in the instructor groups. Tracks I drive are WGI, NJMP, LR, Pocono, SP, Palmer.A few years ago, I sold my dedicated race car had...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11

Flat out the best tire for the Boxster. No other Bridgestone tire even compares. I am the one who wrote multiple reviews on the S-04 Pole Pos and how disappointed I was. The S-04s are on the rear and I have the RE-11s on the front. I almost turned away from Bridgestone as a result of the poor performance of the S-04 but the RE-11 is so sharp in steering...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R

First time on these tires. Wear was even and as expected (should get 8 days). Grip was very good even when cool, as advertised. I vote for works in the wet although others have reported different. Details follow:Two days on these tires at Oregon Raceway Park. Both days the temperature started around 35 and ended around 55. Cold starting pressure was 39...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Falken Azenis RT615K+

I come from a set of worn out Bridgestone Potenza RE11's. I bought my Miata to go autocrossing last year. I've done 7 events total now. These tires were the first mod this year. I have 2 autocross events on them currently, and I am VERY impressed. The first event was a novice school, put on by the local club. Being that this was a school, times werent...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R

First of all, the tread life of these tires is not very good. If you are buying these to drive on daily, you (other than just wasting them) are more or less wasting your money, they aren't really meant for that. I'm roughly 40% through the life of the tire after 3500 miles of combined city/highway, three track days and one autocross event. These are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R

I bought these tires for autocross and they work great. I just autocrosssed in the rain and they help grip surprisingly well. I drive on them to/from the events (100-150 miles round trip) and they seem to handle the normal road conditions well. At this rate I will easily get 7,500-10,000 miles of autocross driving and driving to/from the events out of them.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus R-S4

Second year in auto-x. Bought these tires because re-71's were not available. My first impression is that this is a superior tire for autocross. I was somewhat concerned because I had read a review that said they squeal (I came from a Bridgestone Potenza 760, which does squeals a lot and not the best tire for autocross). I can report In 20 runs with these...  Read More

New Wheels for 2017 Subaru BRZ with Performance Pack Brembo Brakes

I was hoping to convince Tire Rack management to cover the cost swapping my 2015 Subaru BRZ for a 2017 Subaru BRZ with the Performance Pack. This would give us quick access for a car to test fit and I get the newest BRZ. Of course they didn't go for that, but we have updated our website with compatible wheels for the 2017 Subaru BRZ with Performance Pack...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R

I bought these to run F Street SCCA Solo hoping to be competitive and they have not disappointed. The grip is immense, the tire response is razor sharp and they have great grip from the first run. On the stock Pirelli P-Zero's out of three events I managed 13th, 5th and 16th in Pax overall out of 55 to 77 drivers depending on the event. Now, four events in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

Previous tires were the OEM Bridgestone Potenza RE97AS - they were done at 20K. Decided to try the BFG tires. So far, so good. They ride a little bit softer, but corner much better, with excellent grip in the rain. Have not had a significant snowfall yet here in Pittsburgh, so I can't report on that yet. As far as noise, they seem ok to me, even with the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position

I purchased these tires because of experience with the last generation of them. These are just as great in any weather, but road noise is a lot. By the way great in rain.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

Replaced the OEM installed Bridgestone Potenza RE050A tires with only 13,000 miles on the clock and installed the new Michelin Pilot 4S tires. I've had prior experience with some Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 tires, as well as two sets of Michelin PSS tires on different cars, and Michelin knocked it out of the park again.Summary = Superb traction and handling...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Rival S

Last season, I was going to buy the Bridgestone Potenza Re71r but they were back ordered for 2 months so I decided to go with a set of the Rival S for autocross. What a great tire! These tires handle great in the dry and handle well in wet conditions. I dont recommened driving in heavy rain, that can be sketchy. But for an extreme performance tire i was...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

These tires are really nice lots of traction during wet and dry weather. I noticed these tires work well during heavy rain mine also road smooth and no annoying road sound. But the one down fall is they wear out fast you might get 15k miles out of them if you drive hard on them but Well worth it.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

I purchased a set of Driveguards from my local Cadillac dealership and they installed them with a road force balance. The car originally had Bridgestone Potenza Run Flats. My car now finally rides like a Cadillac because of these driveguards. They are absolutely better than the Potenzas in every way except for cornering. Don't get me wrong my car still...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

I had Cooper touring tires and I wanted more out of my life. My car also wanted more. I decided to get these tires and honestly they're the best tires ive ever driven. They grip good in the dry and pretty good in the wet. This isn't a soccer mom tire. Honestly after putting them on my Nissan Altima 2001 SE Sedan 2.4L 4cyl, my car feels like it's much faster.I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

I have always bought Bridgestone tires for all of my vehicles. Would highly recommend them for all cars and trucks in all driving scenarios. The original equipment Michelin MXM4 that came on the car barely got to 30K miles. I hope I have great use of these Bridgestones as I have with every set I've purchased before... will review again after putting some...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

The grip and handling is outstanding in wet and dry conditions. These tires dramatically improved my confidence on the road. They are slightly stiffer than the OEM tires, but it was worth it in terms of safety. At 30,000 miles, the tread is down to 6/32 inch; it looks like I will get about 35,000 miles total. This is based on mostly freeway driving in urban...  Read More
