Bridgestone Potenza RE050A RFT
Initial Review: 25,000 miles on tires
June 26, 2012

These were the original tire on my wife's Mini. Run Flats make for an unforgiving ride, every bump is felt, sometimes to a steering wheel jerking surprise. Wife and love the way these tires stick when cornering. I expected 22,000, got 25,000 miles. The few times we did venture in the snow, neither of us encountered any issues. We will replace w/ the Continetal Run Flats, now the OEM tire on Minis.
