Never written a review on a tire before. But I am compelled to write this one to caution other drivers on how bad this tire is. Ratings reflect my opinion. Even going on a small bump on a road in DRY conditions, one can feel the vehicle move from side to side!! I have never had that before. I kept looking at the trees to see if it was windy (it wasn't).

I purchased these tires because they had good reviews and they were all season tires. However as I have learned in December as the snow started to fall here in Colorado there tires are FAR from all season and are actually dangerous in the snow and ice. I have never felt so unsafe driving in winter conditions as I have with these tires on. Despite being and seasoned winter driver and driving conservatively I have gone off the road and slid into intersections several times with these tires. I am currently at a tire store getting snow tires on so that I can feel safe and secure getting back into my car. Having recently purchased new tires This summer I did not expect to spend another $500+ On new tires yet here I am because the Bridgestone potenza "all-season" tires have been so unsafe in the snow. I have never purchased snow tires previously as I have always felt safe and had stability with previous all season tires. I always take other reviews with a grain of salt but please reconsider buying these tires if you expect even one snow flake to fly where you live. Hopefully the company will reconsider labeling these all season tires as they clearly are not! Also of note I submitted this review directly to the bridgestone website but they returned it to me stating that it did not meet their "guidelines". Maybe they just do not want this review published?

Brought these tires back in July. Was a little skeptical at first because I'm a Michelin man and I've never brought Bridgestone before. I replaced a set of Michelin primacy with these and I don't regret it. These tires are absolutely wonderful! They are very quiet cruising around town and out on the highway. The handling is amazing. They corner very well giving you added confidence in curves. Wet traction is very impressive as I have yet to feel any slippage in heavy rain or slick roads. Can't rate tread wear as of yet cause it's too early to tell or snow handling cause I haven't driven it any yet. Overall so far a great tire!!!! I've always been a Michelin man and probably always will be but I would recommend and buy these tires again. The michelins may be a tad bit quieter than these but not by much! But the overall performance, handling, comfort and response on these wins out!....FYI I run 35psi in the front and 32 in the rear. That gave me the best ride feel.
