Top Bridgestone Potenza S02A Review

Given 71% while driving a Porsche 986 Boxster S (255/40 R17) on a combination of roads for 6,000 average miles
Bought a 986 Boxster S with these already fitted - took a note of current wear (7mm front & 2mm rear) and then used the car. 5mths and nearly 6k miles of normal use later, wear update - front 6mm & 1.8mm rear, so they're hard wearing. There's plenty of grip when tyres are up to temperature but they're rubbish cold.

Given 76% while driving a Porsche BOXSTER 2.7 (255/40 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 30,000 average miles
Just about to renew all 4 tyres after 30 months & 30,000 miles. Driven daily in all weathers, I found they performed very well, dry grip & road holding I couldn't fault, wet grip & road holding couldn't fault either even now as I'm about to replace them & they at the limit of their wear. Good grip & road holding in the snow to, although they wear a little skittish in the last snow (march 2018) but not surprising given they are at end of their life. These tyres wear very well compared to the Pirelli PZero Rosso that were on before with18,000 miles driven on them before needing to replace them. Only fault these tyres have is in the cold weather when both comfort & grip suffer a little until they warm up but on really cold days they need to be driven
a little more cautiously. I drive steadily generally but do some spirited driving reasonably often as well. I would have no hesitation in reccomending these tyres to a fellow Boxster owner.
