Top Bridgestone Potenza RE71R Review

Given 74% while driving a Subaru Impreza WRX STI (225/45 R17) on mostly country roads for 20,000 spirited miles
Easily outperforms my previous tyres (ad08r and hankook rs3) in terms of outright grip. A tad noisy on the highway due to thread pattern. Has constant performance throughout the life of the tyres unlike the ad08r which was great for the first 30% and the rest felt like skating on ice. Great wet weather performance and can effectively cut through small standing puddles but gets sketchy with deep puddles. Lasted me about 20000 miles, only 3 track days but incredibly aggressive daily driving. Will definitely buy again.

Given 73% while driving a Hyundai Genesis Coupe V6 (255/40 R18) on track for 5,000 spirited miles
These are the ultimate autocross/time trial tire in the 200tw or higher category. They wear more like 150tw however. I always say they are made of "black magic and mozzarella cheese". The tires provide all the grip you want short of mounting hoosiers to the car. You will have to spray the tires to keep them cool on hot summer autocross days. They do not talk when on limit like a normal street tire, instead they grip quietly until they break free, making an awful groaning noise when they do, not the typical high pitched screeching. Also, they sound like a winter tire driving down the road. 10/10 will buy again.

Very agressive on the dry, very good handling
I've used it on 4 track days

Good on the road but quiet noisy

I recommend it and I will buy it again

These are the best tyres in the world. Watch now!
Given 78% while driving a Mazda MX5 2.0 SE (ND 2015 onwards) (205/50 R16) on mostly town for 2,000 spirited miles
Very aggressive tyre!
Performance on dry road tops the DOT tyres like M PCS2 and P TR.
Haven't really push in the wet so no comment on that.
A bit pricy though.
