Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position
Initial Review: 44,000 miles on tires
April 02, 2014

I have a toyota x-runner and I drive the chit out of that truck. owner of a start-up I have to be around a lot. I clocked on about 44000 miles in less than 10 months of having the tires, and i am definitely at the wear bars. I would say the tires will last that 40k they put on the warranty. I am a pretty spirited driver, when it comes to getting in the hills and enjoying a few turns.. I have my truck set up specifically for cornering, and capable of pulling over .9 in the turns now. While these tires cannot hold that type of force, I am impressed with what they can hold. They are great to have fun in, and they give you the milage you need.
I didn't mention anything about the noise, cause my engine I have set up as well, and can hear it over the tires at all times. So it wasn't a priority when i made my initial decision.
Drive hard drive safe.
