while driving a
(195/55 R15 W) on
I use these tyres on my Accent MC, on some 6.5J wheels. Mounted on two months ago. I had Falkens ZIEX ZE-912 before.
Dry grip is excellent, sometimes they surprise me in a very good way. Sticky, confident grip, very nice. I didn't have the chance of forcing them on wet, just drove in a regular manner and it's very good. Much better than the Falkens.
They are progressive, I can safely throw them into corners and tight maneuvers. They are pretty comfortable even if I don't care much. But the reason they feel good and soft on bad and bumpy roads is that I feel them soft on the sidewalls. The previous Falkens were a little more sharp and aggressive, with stronger sidewalls, even if the Bridges felt stronger when I inspected them by pulling the sidewalls with my hands. They feel a little bit laggy, winter tyre like, the car tends "to settle" progressively during an aggressive turn and at the end also. Don't get me wrong: they are very precise and nice to drive, but I wish they had a little more harder sidewalls. I will enjoy them no matter what. I don't go to trackdays, my car has a 1.4 litre 95hp engine and H&R springs, so for this combo, the Bridges are great. I would by again a tyre with this amount of grip, but the soft sidewall is not a thing I like, even if it's something very minor. Sorry for my english, not my native language. :)
