Bridgestone Potenza RE050 RFT
Initial Review: 32,000 miles on tires
January 07, 2012

These were the OEM tires on my 335D, which we all know has monster rear wheel torque. I was a bit leery of the RFTs, but I never experienced any problems at all. I keep pressure on the higher side, near 40-42psi. Tires are very stiff, but so is the suspension, so I got used to the bumps. On open smooth roads they are perfect, but on anything approaching bad, you have to slow down and take it very easy. I was surprised I was able to to get 30K+ miles out of these. I almost replaced with same but decided to not go back with RFTs under the believe I can get a much better ride and even longer life. I would definitely use them again, no complaints from me.
