Re: bridgestone

A friend of mine had these tyres on his Integra Type R standard tyre for these aswell from factory the grip is v good dry and wet but you dont get great wear out of them he only got 7,500miles when he swapped the front to back as it FWD and thats no track and spirited driving now and again and not very cheap to start with its a shame they just dont last as long as they should

Have used these, they were fitted to my 04 Impreza... they were good all rounders...but better in the wet than dry compared with Pirelli P6000

Also the Potenza's did not last anwhere near as long as my Pirelli's

I also used Toyo's Proxes (OLD VERSION) during the ownership of this car... they were brilliant in the wet... but did not last very long... and a bit on the soft side... the newer versions are stiffer.

Good luck...

Re: bridgestone

Had Potenzas on my RA and didn't like them to be honest. Made the car very skittish in the wet and the dry grip was good but not great. Dunlops I have on now are far better in all conditions.
