Completely changed our Mini Cooper S 2012. Ride is much easier, not loud or bone-shattering anymore, and the steering feels way more safe and responsive. Tires are loads better in the rain, not spinning as much as the continental runflats that came with the car. No one who has driven the car has been able to get the tires to chirp. Previously, the tires...  Read More

With a combination of highway daily driving and backroad traveling I HIGHLY recommend these tires as a replacement for the Goodyears that came on the car new. I destroyed the first set within the first 7000 miles. No, they do not grip quite as well as the highly focused Goodyears that came on the car, however, the slight amount of grip given up is well worth...  Read More

Just got pre-owned 2015 BMW 640xi Gran Sport with 5,000 miles. Came with original Eagle run flat tires. These tires have an awful reputation and my previous experience with OEM Goodyear Eagle tires of all types has been very negative- poor wear, no mileage warranty and noisy. Did a lot of research and discovered the Bridgestone Drive Guard Grand Touring Run...  Read More

First the good news. The Bridgestone Driveguard tires would appear to be superior to the OEM Goodyear runflats in ride, wet/dry traction, and handling. The bad news. After 16,000 miles and 3 rotations, the rear 2 tires were worn down to 3/32 and 4/32 respectively. Nothing abnormal was noted at each of the 3 rotations.Blissful ignorance would have continued...  Read More

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

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

These tires came OE on our 2015 Buick Encore and they are very noisy. As always, stock OE tires are garbage. We'll Probably buy another brand when we have to replace them.   Read More

I been using this tire with a 9.5 wide wheel as the stock 9 wheels have no good tires for an open track day. I only use this tire for HPDE events and getting to the track. I have mixed feeling about it. Its not very high grip tire my mostly stock GT can break them lose with a sharp hit of WOT. If driven with some care it will provide everything Tire Rack...  Read More

I've had my BMW 330 for 10 years and the only thing I don't love about it are its run-flat tires. It came with Bridgestone Turanza which were rough and noisy and lasted 30,000 miles. Then I had 2 sets of Continental Conti Pro, each lasted 40,000 miles and they were somewhat better than the Turanza. But I always hated the harshness and the way the run-flat...  Read More

I've purchased two sets of two Extreme DWS in the last couple years. While decent on dry/wet, and quite good in snow/ice (compared to similarly priced alternatives), the treadwear and subsequent noise has been awful. Both sets of tires were installed by different mechanics, in different states, but both got feathered, showed uneven wear (middle wear) despite...  Read More

Coming from a set of the ExtremeContact Sport DW that had lasted 22,000 miles, I went with these newer editions primarily for comfort and durability. I mostly drive my R8 like an old man and commute around in it, but I do take it once in a few months to the local mountains for fun.The old Sport DW tires were truly outstanding. I have driven the car across...  Read More

Every time it rains I fear for my safety with these tires. Just going around corners at normal speed they will break loose with the slightest application of the accelerator. Fortunately the G37 Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) is very good and *most* of the time can stop the car from fishtailing like a hoolligan. I once turned off the VDC on a wet turn and I...  Read More

The OEM tires for this car were Yoko AVID S34B which I felt were very good tires,I got 43k out of them and could have possibly made it to 50k had the toe in been properly set at the factory,all the 08 Lancers seem to have been set up with the front wheels toed in a little to much causing faster outside wear on the tires then the rest of the tire. The Yokos...  Read More

I only just mounted the wheels that hold these tire, and have begun to break them in (500 miles is suggested, but I think after 300 I have done the job already). Reason for break-in is to wear away the releasing agent that is used to remove the tire from its mold during manufacturing (Read Tire Rack R&A info...good stuff there).During my break in time I have...  Read More

I bought these tires in December. 2 weeks later I made a drive thru a lake effect snowstorm. 100 miles in 1 to 2 FEET of snow. They got me through it with not much problem. As time goes on and the tires wear I don't expect this level of traction to continue, but I was much impressed.   Read More

I use these year round here in Norther Michigan and in Massachusetts. Wish they still hade the run flat version, maybe that was in 3D, not sure why they don't have them. Anyway, this tire is a brilliant and essentially year round friend. Very quiet and smooth all seasons with performance both for higher speeds, snow and ice, wet and dry.

These tires, along with a 255/45/17, replaced a set of the same sized TOYO R888 which I just couldn't get to work for me. In spite of putting the fronts at 3.5 degrees of negative camber and playing with the pressures the TOYOs were disappointing. Same alignment and pressures on the Direzzas had me around the track with more fun and faster times, along with...  Read More
