Bridgestone Potenza RE050A Pole Position
Follow-Up Review: 15,000 miles on tires
August 16, 2012
I've now put 15000kms on these tires. They've had some track use and fairly spirited highway driving. I'm struggling to find a fault with them. The straight line traction is excellent, cornering grip and stability is amazing, stopping is stunning. Wet grip is almost as good as dry. I can't believe how well they are wearing as well. They are not even half worn. The OE tires (Michelin) were completely done at 16000kms (10000 miles) and while a good tire are not even close to the Bridgestones. No hesitation from me to recommend them!!!!!
Initial Review: 7,500 miles on tires

Reviewed the tire with 3000 miles! Now at 7500 and they feel better than before. The tire allows me to drive at my limit with confident. Yes, they are a little noisy and ride hard but this is a high performance tire, that's what it is designed for and I would imagine Bridgestone (who for those who don't know) and the sole supplier of Formula 1 tires and comfort and noise would not have the top priority when designing it.

Wear doesn't concern me, performance and safety does and that's exactly what I'm getting at the moment.

Buy them again? Absolutely!

Recommend them to someone else? Absolutely
