Bridgestone Potenza RE-11
Initial Review: 400 miles on tires
January 21, 2012

First iuse this tire for track days. The car has 19 wheels so all tires are expensive. I run the tires until the bead shows. I have run r compound ties, michielin sport cups (3), Hoosier A6 (1), street compounds Michelin PS2 (4) super sports (4), Yokohama sport vans (6) ADVAN AD08. It is within this experience that I report on the RE11. The number in the parenthesis is the number of track days I got out of each tire. The RE11 lasted 7 track days and stick well, not as good as the R-compound as you might suspect. The ADVANs wore well but did not stick. The RE11 are a good compromise of wear (cost) and grip. Until I win the lottery and can afford to rin the R-compound I'll stick with the RE11s
