Given 70% while driving a BMW E90 330d (245/35 R19 W) on a combination of roads for 15,000 average miles
Bought the car with these on it. I have my car remapped so its putting down loads of torque out the rears. Good tyre i have to say. Dry grip has not let me down yet then can take it when i ask them to. Wet grip, not sure because of the rear wheel drive i take it easy, but so far no problems. as for progressiveness, when i really fire it round a roundabout the front sticks fine but you only get a low rumble from the tyres as the only indacation they are working, either they are not good at letting you know they are about to give or im not pushing them enough and if thats the case my god what grip! Feedback is hard to judge as the BMW is quite dead at the steering wheel anyways. Wear, so far so good, approx 7k so far, plenty left (for a high performance tyre) Comfort is good, for such a low profile tyre they suck up the road good. Buy again, i would if i didnt want to try the new goodyear f1 asy's

Given 89% while driving a Nissan 350z (245/45 R18 W) on a combination of roads for 16,000 spirited miles
These replaced a set of S03s on my 350z. Not to be mistaken with the RE050 or even the RE050A, these RE050 Pole Positions are simply mind blowing.

Quiter than the S03s and the RE040s, MUCH better in the wet than the RE040s and in the dry they just keep on gripping.

When they start to run out of grip (which is rare) you hear it a long time before you feel it, and even as it's breaking away it's progressive and controllable.

Didn't wear too bad but they're quite a soft compound so don't expect them to last forever.

Would recommend to anyone.
