Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position
Initial Review: 100 miles on tires
January 26, 2012

Just bought - 245/40 fronts and 275/35 rears. Initial thoughts - very happy so far. Ride is as soft and quiet as summer-only tires, and better than OE run-flat tires in both categories. Still breaking them in, so have not pushed performance criteria. Have driven on wet interstate at 70+ mph with no hydroplaning. No freezing conditions yet. BMW dealer recommended increasing TP by 2 psi over BMW factory specs. Will write more after driving more miles.
