Default Re: NASIOC specific tire review (please respond)

#1.) what tire are you offering for review (please include size)

Bridgestone Potenza RE 040 205/50/16

#2.) what is your geographic location


#3.) what types of driving events if any (i.e. track, AutoX, RallyX)

No track - just road use.

#4.) percent of highway vs. city driving

70% City, 30% Highway

#5.) your review and personal comments

Dry grip = good.
Wet grip = mediocre. Quite skatey.
Noise = Just OK: they "roar" on coarse-chip bitumin.
Comfort = Acceptible, but a little hard for my liking.
Responsiveness = Poor steering response (too light and indirect, not enough feedback); OK initial turn-in; quite responsive mid-corner; Directional stability = truly awful, they tramline all over the place after the initial wear-in and it gets worse as they wear. I wouldn't buy these again in a fit.
