    Original equipment on many high-performance vehicles, the Potenza RE050 is built for the pleasure of driving. This tire comes loaded with race-proven technology: UNI-T for outstanding wet and dry traction, a tread pattern that promotes rapid water evacuation, variable dimensions in the tread blocks, and the smoother shape to reduce road noise. An asymmetrical pattern in the RE050A tread increases surface contact to enhance acceleration and cornering. Put this Potenza through its paces and discover what ultra-high performance really means.

    Opel Insignia Turbo 245/45R 18 sticks like glue on dry roads, had also no problems on wet roads be careful only in heavy rain where the water is building up to fast. Its a summer tire so stay away from snow. I usually go 130-160km/h and they lasted for 43200km

    These tires handle great, but the tread life is pathetic. I don't drive aggressively, mostly highway. The tires are at their wear bars at 17,500 miles.

    My rear 275/35R19's lasted 48,500kms on my 6-series BMW, cutting out on the inner edge, due to the sports camber BMW designed into the car. They would have had at least another 5,000km had this not been the case. Excellent for a tyre with such grip.

    Running 245 35 20 on Pontiac G8 GT. Tyre pressures 38 - 40 psi. These are not ice/snow winter tyres so should not be rated for severe winter conditions for which they were not designed. These are a performance tyre with a softish compound , not an endurance tyre , so you are not going to get high mileage from them. However running them at the wrong tyre pressure (as I am sure many do) will significantly increase wear. From past experience I expect to get approx 24000 miles from the tyres before they need replacing which is quite acceptable/good for a performance tyre. So far I have found them quiet and sticky in dry , damp/slick and very wet road conditions. All tyres will become more slippery in the wet with age and once the tread wears down to 15% or so. Various Bridgestone performance tyres I have used in the past are no different. Overall these are very good tyres and are well built unlike many lesser tyres where quality controls can be average to poor. I have never had any kind of issue with any Bridgestone tyres and I am on my 8th set of this brand. The only downside with these tyres is the price. But with tyres you usually get what you pay for.
