Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position
Initial Review: 1,000 miles on tires

Definitely like these tires so far. They replaced a set of Michelin Pilot Sport A/S and have way more grip in the dry and wet. These are all season tires and for these tires the compromise is grip in snow. The R is big and heavy and these tires don't do much to help it stop and turn in the snow (it accelerates fine due to the AWD). I definitely knew this before purchasing this tire as the car is not driven in the snow often, and I prefer the dry/wet grip for spirited driving.
