Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position
Initial Review: 800 miles on tires
April 30, 2012

The Potenza RE970AS Pole Position tires are simply amazing. Dry acceleration and adhesion during cornering and braking is outstanding. These tires stick to the road like glue. Wet road handling is virtually the same as dry road performance! No hydroplaning at highway speeds and no tire spin under hard wet road acceleration. Have been unable to break the tires loose in hard wet OR dry cornering. They simply grab the road under all conditions. Night and day improvement over the mediocre Goodyear LS2's that came with the vehicle. The ABS and StabiliTrak systems have not kicked in with these tires. Totally satisfied!
