Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position
Initial Review: 15,000 miles on tires
April 14, 2012

Bought this tire to replace the stock Bridgestones that came with my car. Though the tires are marketed as all-season tires, these have not held up well for me in the snow conditions, with the car sliding everytime i braked in snowy conditions. Apart from this, the dry/wet performance of these tires and the grip in the dry and wet is very good. Hydroplaning resistance in heavy rain conditions has been very good and there is a good level of assurance in the rain with these tires. The tires are fairly quiet and the ride confort is good as well. Treadwear has been good and i have about 8/32 left after 15K miles. I will recommend these tires to anyone who wants good tires for dry and wet conditions, but not the snow.
