I Expected Better


I bought 2 of these tyres for the front (235/40/18), a little more road noise than I would have liked but it wasn't loud at all. They were good for a few weeks (maybe 2000kms) gripped good in wet and dry like you were glued to the road, even at speeds. After that the performance dropped, every time I went around a corner or a roundabout it felt like the tyres slip a little before they start gripping, you can even hear it rubbing on the road (not like a tyre squeal though). Don't get me wrong, its still a good tyre and handles ok but for the price of them I expected them to be better. I've had them on for about 10,000kms now and still plenty of tread left and the handling hasn't changed since then.

Deadly in the wet, do not buy. Ok in the Dry


These tyres are the worst tyres I have ever driven on in the wet, they are fine in the Dry. Car drifts sideways going up the Freeway in the wet under medium to slow acceleration. I can't keep up with other cars accelerating from the lights normally in the wet without the wheels spinning. They are shocking and dangerous. That's on a rear wheel drive commodore that is great with other tyres on it. They are brand new and I'm thinking about disposing of them.

Not for use in Wet


These tires perform very poorley in the wet.
The Mazda 6 is front wheel drive and the tyres skid all over the place in the rain, be it starting from lights, on a roundabout or cornering.
Whilst they perform ok in the dry, they are boarderline dangerous in the rain.

Not as good as it's cracked up to be


205 55 R16 91V - Slippery when wet. VERY! The advertising says better performance in the wet. My view on that is be careful in the wet or you may die. It's probably OK for the passive driver, but you buy a performance tyre because you like going round corners quickly, and you may need to stop quickly. Right? It's actually scary in the wet. The car wants to go sideways around corners, or slip to a stop, even under steady braking - not even pushing it. It's even slippery in the dry on the hot bitumen of Darwin.

Not Bad, but not all that good either, especially in the wet, on roundabouts they would lose grip regularly, and there was also a lot of road noise from them, sadly no where as good as the MY-01 I had previously on the car which were excellent

Great dry grip. No wet grip


Had these on a Toyota Corolla. 195/50/15s. Very good dry grip. Would hold on around corners but when the rain came it was terrible. If you drove the car like an old granny you would be ok but anything more than that you were safer to get out and walk.

I took them off with more than 50% grip left. What good is a tire that you can't trust in thew most dangerous road condition. Spend a little extra money on Michelin Pilot Sport 3 instead.

Adequate in the dry, deadly in the wet.


Purchased for a 2013 Polo Gti. They are ok for the first few thousand K's then they start to reveal why they're so cheap. Dry grip remains adequate but nothing to write home about. However wet grip is equivalent to driving on ice. 40kph on a large highway roundabout (Cairns Captain Cook Highway) and it's 4 wheel drifting to your hearts content. It's fun at first until you realise if you're ever in an emergency you'll probably die. If you're very keen on these I'd suggest getting them only on the back of a car, then at least you can Tokyo Drift easily.

Economic Tyre at a Good Price - Some Problematic Traction

CarVW Jetta FSI; Mercedes A170

Great Tyres


I have had these on for a few months now and can't fault them. On my mazda Eunos they look sporty and are quiet on the road.
The boys at Bridgestone Tyres Upper Coomera were fantastic and really looked after me. I have bought tyres there for both of my cars and I have been really happy each time. They offer free wheel balance and rotate at 3months and ring me to remind me to book it in. Excellent tyres, excellent service. Highly recommend these tyres and Bridgstone Upper Coomera.

Poor wet performance but OK in dry


Got these for 4 for price of 3 for my xr6t sedan not modified. When new they we're OK in wet...still lost traction but now that they have a few ks on them I'm always losing traction in wet. In dry they fine.....also have a fair bit of road noise now after 8 000ks.

Would not buy again though

Good Tyres


Had them on my civic and impressed with the grip and very low noise at road. A bit expensive than achilles 123s but still a good tyre. Handling improves a lot, steering is very responsive. Had them bought 3+1 promo of Bridgstone. Excellent breaking power and acceleration. Nice tyre for a low profile car.

Not recommended for a Volvo S40 T4


205/50/16, bought them for $125 each but did less then 15,000km before started losing grip. After 20,000km I'm about to replace them. I check the tyre pressure at least monthly, always on 32-34. Considering my driving conditions, consisting of 60% highway and 40% suburban traffic all on good roads, this the worst wearing tyre I had in 160,000km I owned my Volvo. Definitely not recommended.

I love these things


I just got a full set put on my 8th gen civic hatchback, love the grip in the dry, grip in wet is very good, steering is now quite responsive.
I did a spirited drive on a country road, I can take corners at least 20km/h faster with them and they are not squealing which means i can push them even more if i wanted to.
At $140 a tire for 225/45R17 which is a good price
I love them

Good in dry, horrible wet grip


I replaced my Potenza tyres with these on my Accord Euro and there is a huge difference in wet grip- almost feels like driving on ice when it rains, especially when cornering and taking off from stationary. They are smooth, good in the dry, and noise levels excellent but I would not buy them again (at least until I'm 80)

Just put them on and very Impressed


I was at the point I needed to replace the tyres on my Monaro CV8. I have not done much milage on then yet, but so far I am very impressed. They are quiet and I am very fussy about tyre noise. When I had them put on the car it was raining. May I say the grip was excellent. I drove the car in the wet with great confidence. Pushing the car a little in the wet and it responded excellent.
In some dry driving weather I was also impressed. For $165 a tyre the price is reasonable to. I am more than satisfied the advice that was given to me by the lads at Bob Jane T Mart. Well done guys......
Great grip in the wet and quiet. Price was great to.
None so far

Not Bad.


Brought these because they are bridgestone brand and price was very attractive.
I have these on my modified Subaru WRX AWD 215 45 17. compare to my old tyres kumho ku31
the MY02
Noise level: Very Low
In Dry: Very good

With the price i paid im happy with what i get,
Low noise level. good grip in dry
in Wet: not impressive enter a turn at 50KM+ will lose grip of your car



Fits well for what you paid for!


I brought 4 of these and couldn't be anymore happier, specially for what I paid for! I have a 2008 Saab 93 1.9TID its a FWD.

Driven 7000km on them. Sticky enough in the dry and gripy enough in the wet. Very quiet and good amount of comfort.

Only thing I didn't like about it, was that I had Conti SportsContact 4, the fuel usage was 6.5L - 6.8L and with the Bridgestone it's at 7.0L - 7.3L
Relible Bridgestone name, inexpensive and looks great!
Uses a little more fuel

Questions & Answers



How much wear did you get out of these tyres before you had to change them?

1 answer

So far about 30000, but tyres looking like they'll be needing replacing soon, so a bit unhappy about durability.
