Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position
Initial Review: 15,000 miles on tires
February 06, 2014

I've had these tires for a bit over 15K miles and am nothing but pleased with them. They do everything I expected them to do, and do it very well. The biggest surprise/bonus has been the wet weather performance. I drove them through so VERY heavy rain storms over the summer, and I never once hydroplaned or felt unstable. And the grip in the wet was great. In the dry they also perform very well. I save the aggressive driving for the track (dedicated track car), but having fun on some on/off ramps and some back roads really shows how well these tires grip in the dry. The only downside I've had was that they were pretty loud when new. Louder than I expected, but quieted down after about 1K miles. They're still slightly on the loud side, but nothing extreme or bothersome. Overall, a great tire for the price and would definitely recommend and buy again.
