Bridgestone Potenza RE-11
Initial Review: 1,500 miles on tires
October 09, 2012

Called the Tire Rack to order a different tire because stock size is NLA from most manufacturers. Sales Advisor informed me about the Bridgestone RE-11 in my size. I have not had good prior experience with Bridgestone, but since this was the ONLY performance tire in this size I decided to give it a try. My FIRST spirited driving on them was at the Tail of the Dragon in NC/Tenn. and I am completely happy with this tire. It was quiet on the hgwy on the way to Deals Gap, rides comfortably, and grips like Gorilla Glue in the turns. Braking was improved over the Dunlops replaced, and 180+ degree turns at 45 MPH could not break them loose or even make them squeal.(not so for the Michelin Pilot Sports on the front). I will be buying a set for the front end in the next few days. I could not be happier about the performance, ride or noise of these tires. EXCELLENT PRODUCT. Note: my 88 928S4 has 340 HP and a light rear end and there was no hint of looseness or impending break away with the Bridgestones even under heavy acceleration in 2nd & 3rd gear uphill on the Tail of the Dragon.
