Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position
Follow-Up Review: 4,000 miles on tires

Slightly better now but still not as good as the stock Conti's performed. I have noticed tread wear is becoming noticeable. The tires look to have about half of what I started with. I won't purchase this tire again. Keep in mind that I don't drift around every turn or burn out of every light but at 80 mph, but I don't want the rear end responding long after I turn the wheel. The tires were installed on the rear only.

Same thoughts so far. Not as good as I had hoped. Very soft sidewall/tread. Feels like the rear reacts much later than the front. In defense of the Bridgestone tires (different model) on my other cars (Mercs & BMWs), once they were half way thru their treadlife, they performed well. May do the RE 11 on the front due to other owners posts but getting burned on Bridgestone.
