Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R
Initial Review: 100 miles on tires
January 06, 2017

I have only driven these on dry days(only time I take my car out). But they are amazing so far. I have a full exhaust on my air cooled 911 so the car is noisy itself. I don't hear any tire noise. I'm coming off Continental sport contact tires and these blow them out of the water in terms of grip. I can't seem to break the rear end loose anymore even pushing it hard. I live on a brick road and am surprised at how comfortable these are. After reading other reviews, I was a bit nervous, but so glad I made the purchase. Can't comment on treadwear yet but who cares. I want my car to stick in corners and this does! I've driven Michelin PSS ( only made in 17 up) and this is much better as far as dry grip. Can't comment on wet cause my car stays inside, but anyone looking for a great performing dry tire, this is it. Especially for the cost!
