Top Bridgestone Potenza RE050A Run Flat Review

Given 20% while driving a BMW E93 330i (225/35 R19) on a combination of roads for 3,000 average miles
Very dangerous tyre. These tyres should be taken off the market. I refer only to the low profile tyres (30 or 35) on a BMW 19" wheels. Totally unforgiving tyre which will crack your wheels and give awful handling and appalling ride quality. I've never had a car that is legally unsafe to drive on the road. On the plus side, they got me home when i lost pressure in the rear tyre - however it wasn't a puncture but a cracked alloy. New wheel and new tyre £850 ouch! then discovered the other wheel is also cracked.

Car jumps in a turn with bad road surface.

Initially I hated these tires . Been using them from 2006 and still using them at present.Many failures in the first two years due to poor quality control . Zero assistance from Bridgestone.Theteafter the problems seems to have diminished. Good Tyre I would recommend them

What's better in the snow, a 4x4 or winter tyres? Watch the video to find out!
Given 40% while driving a BMW 1 series (225/45 R17) on mostly country roads for 600 spirited miles
OEM tyres on dealer approved used BMW F20 bought one month ago.
Terrible grip in wet or dry. If you want to drift or power slide, these are for you. If you want to drive on Devon country lanes or even dual carriageway without tramlininig, skittering, vibrating to death or cracking a rim, DO NOT get these.
Without doubt the worst tyre ride I have ever experienced.
They are trying to kill me!!!!
Going tomoz.

dear oh fecking dear ...these are truly the worst tyre I have ever came across in nearly 30 years driving ....harsh , smashes over small bumps and uneven surfaces , I'm waiting for the windscreen to crack , grip in the dry is only just there , in the wet there is nothing ... just vagueness and nothing .... no grip , no feedback , nothing , It feels like the tyres are made of hard plastic like you get on a kids toy .dangerous too , over bumps and potholes makes the whole car skip sideways , or worse on a big roundabout with expansion gaps .. the car skids a foot sideways everytime you drive over a gap .... never , ever , ever ever , never , ever again ............never
