Top Bridgestone Potenza RE720 Review

Given 93% while driving a BMW Z3 roadster (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 20,000 spirited miles
I think this is the best tire ever created! ...and the most misunderstood.
Especially the one that was produced in Japan. Simply an amazing tire!
Phenomenal dry grip with excellent progressiveness and amazing performance
in wet roads. Never aquaplaned at any speeds! Even when the car started
to drift, it returned back very controllably. Cornering was like a train on
rails. Very stiff side-walls that translated into instant direction turning
and steer responsiveness. All this of course translates to fast tire wear.
They managed to create a stiff and at the same time fast wearing tire that
did not loose its elasticity!

Having said that, I think that Bridgestone made the biggest mistake when
they stopped producing the RE720. I have done more than 500.000 miles
with several tires and brands and I cannot find yet one that comes even
close to this tire. Some of them work ok in the beginning but their
performance deteriorates fast.

Now this tire is very much misunderstood by many people because they
were using it on lightweight cars and without proper warming up.

I have now ordered the Potenza Adrenalin RE002.
Lets hope its performance is similar to the RE720.

Given 41% while driving a Mazda 3 2.0 DISI (215/45 R18) on mostly town for 7,000 average miles
Sorry to say that it was a bad experience. I had a Toyo tyre that came with my Mazda and those lasted more than a pair of brand new Bridgestone Potenzas. Seriously not even lasted a year, I had to fix them at least 3 or four times. Now I have to look for new tyres as these are unusable for going to the highway.
