Bridgestone Tyres

Hi,
My mark one STI is currently on Potenza RE01 tyres which need replacing.I was going to stay with Potenzas but not sure which is the best or perhaps there is something better.
Any suggestions welcome-well about tyres anyway
Cheers

Toyos i would recommend - built for the job in hand my opinion. Great set of tyres and kept me on the road on a few occasions

my '99 classic turbo came with potenza s02 which were great... replaced them with pirelli p zero assymetrico and they were only average... ok in the dry but very ropey in the wet understeering like mad... managed to get a set of potenza re010 from a mate who took them off his new car and kept them aside and very impressed although i think potenza so2 were better in the wet... might try goodyear eagle f1 next as they were brilliant on my cosworth... poor wear rate though... still better to stay between the hedge

Tried Pzero's & Bridgestone's now, not that impressed with either. Although, if I had to choose I'd take the Pzero's anyday!

Now on Hankook's on the front as recommended on the RB5 Owners Club, these are better than the other two!
