Normally I always go with michelin and in this case it would have been the pilot super sports, but i wanted to do something different and i like the look of the s-04's better. BIG mistake umbres. Although they do everything the review say they do (second place to the michelin supersports being #1) i am throughly disappointed in the tire. Why? ?The treat life is the worst of any tire I have ever owned. I do not drift them/brake burn or otherwise abuse them..have put 6000 km on them and they have lost 20% of the tread. No lie. Makes me sick thinking that i could have had the michelin pilot supersports for extra 100. Never again am i venturing away from Michelin. Period.

I recently replaced the factory Potenza's with these. I have always had separate Winter Tires (Dunlop SP Wintersport 3), and I never looked forward to switching back to the original factory all weather tires. I finally wore them out and got the the new Pole Positions after much research. The car just doesn't move at all around hard turns. I was really surprised by how smooth and quiet they rode for a performance tire even at a little higher inflation (I'm keeping them inflated at 38psi front and 36psi rear). I tried a few different combos of inflation and they drove best a little stiffer. They are very low profile. So far wet driving has been excellent. Love these. The review screen required me to rate treadwear and snow. Since it's a summer tire, I do not drive these in the snow. I have not had them long enough to rate treadware accurately.

I used these tires for occasional canyon runs and daily driving though Los Angeles. These tires once warm handled great and super responsive, though they were a little unpredictable when it came to oversteer. The tires have a very sturdy sidewall so it also important to keep an eye on your air pressure as well. Wet grip is a little disappointing, though it is still there and has capabilities, the limits are easily pushed. Noise is not bad, but could be a little quieter, no complaints. Though the huge negative is tread-wear!!! These tires lasted me about 7,500 miles. Which I am pretty ticked off about. Especially knowing that Nitto Motivos have a 30,000 mileage warranty for staggered fitment through Americas Tires. Giving me a guarantee of at least 3 times the life. Overall...A good sport tire, but not for the daily driven car.

Not as good as I had hoped. Had Bridgestone on other cars and hoped these would be different because of low profile but no so. Put these on the rear. They were typical of all the others. Very soft so the rear end is mushy in quick, sharp moves in traffic. Feels like the rear follows much later than the front and the Boxster is known for perfect balance in steering response. In defense of the Bridgestone on my other cars, once they wore down sufficiently, they performed well. I am hoping the same happens but who wants to wait 5k miles for them to perform?
