Top 3 Bridgestone Potenza RE 71RS Reviews

Given 89% while driving a Toyota GR Yaris (255/35 R18) on track for 800 spirited miles
I bought these tyres as my go to track tyre (Yokohama AO52) was out of stock and at least 6 weeks away and I needed a track tyre for my new GR Yaris. I have had these tyres on for a year now and have done 4 track days and around 7000km with the tyres still ok. They maybe have a couple of track days left. I will be buying these again as I find them much better than the Yokohama in the wet and the.perormamce on track is just as good with good wear characteristics. On track they get up to speed very quickly and I find they last for longer stints than the Yokohama as well. A lit bit noisy on rough or course chip bitumen and being a track focused tyre not the most comfortable but still ok for daily driving. Highly recommended.

Given 77% while driving a Skoda (235/40 R18) on a combination of roads for 18,600 spirited miles
Dry grip is one of the best available. Stiff sidewalls make corners a breeze and on point. Soft compound makes the tyre very easy to pick up nails so patching the tyre was a frequent affair. The surprise was it's wet grip. No aquaplanning at all over standing water. Grips the same up to about 100kmh. Only downside of this tyre is it's wear. Tyres lasted 30000km. Would have gotten this again if the prices for this tyre didn't soar so much

Given 74% while driving a Mercedes Benz A45 (245/35 R19) on a combination of roads for 10,000 spirited miles
This tyre is like a RE11 with a firmware update. Was on PS4S for years but after changing to RE71RS, i knew the tyre is way better than the former.

And although the wear on the RE71rs was really bad, i will purchase this again. Only complain is the price increment.
