Bridgestone Potenza RE97AS
Initial Review: 270 miles on tires
April 04, 2013

An extremely comfortable V rated tire that is quiet and handles wet to dry asphalt without issues. Rolling resistance is excellent,not much pedal needed to get car going. Was going over 2 inch pot holes with NO drifting into the other lanes. Solid as expected but the sidewalls could be a tad tighter for unexpected corners. Overall I turned down the Avid s4 due to comfort, Michelin pilot sport no low profile on this heavy car and the michelin primacy MXV4 was not in the price these were for the same performance. The Bridgestone RE97AS is exactly what I was looking for in a Cross Touring tire. Will buy again in 2-3 years since they are priced extremely well.
