    Questions and Answers for the Bridgestone Potenza Race

    2022-06-13 - The tyre fitted to the vehicle has an additional longitudinal groove in the outer part of the tread. This is not shown in the other images. Was this hand cut?

    It's not unusual for different tyre widths to have extra grooves, so it's likely your Bridgestone Potenza Race is just a different width from the stock images.

    Given 84% while driving a BMW 3 series (255/35 R18) on a combination of roads for 3,000 spirited miles
    Extremely good competitor of the Michelin cup 2 connect ! Daily usable like the cup but more grip and precision. Grips like a trofeo r, but has a harder sidewall In wet conditions it’s like the Cup 2 which is very good for that amount of grip.

    I really enjoy the Potenza Race on my GR86. As you say, great reactive steering, not too noisy and they go around the track very well! I was going to use the OEM PS4 for street use but I hate how soft they feel so I run the Potenza Race on street too and they work great. Of course in the winter I will switch to proper winter tires. I have not driven extensively in rain but the rain I've driven in didn't cause any issues or felt unsafe.
    I do have some wear on the outer shoulders from running on the track, but it might be because I'm running a moderate amount of camber for track use (slightly less than -3 degrees. On a McPherson strut I probably need closer to 4 degrees. But since its mixed usage I think it's going to even out over the life of the tires.)
