Comment:
These are great performance tires (on my BMW M6). Fantastic traction in the rain and great around corners. I do not know why CR did not rate them high in this category. Tires lasted about 26,000 miles which is very good for high performance tires. I bought another set even though a newer design had just come out.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

On good smooth pavement, very good. On fresh Asphalt, AMAZING! On uneven or rough pavement-Scary! Is Much better than expected in wet conditions, better than the symetrical tires I've had.

Comment:
Replaced Goodyear Eagle F1 AS, Potenzas are MUCH quieter & less expensive (though not AS, but I live in So Cal, so it's never cold), though don't look as wide or sporty even though the same sizes. Installed on a 2003 BMW 330Ci running different sizes front and rear, so appreciate that tires aren't directional and can be rotated side-to-side. Haven't had long enough to evaluate treadwear, but have had around 6 months and no noticible wear or noise. Be wary of curbs, wheel protection ridge is not very big, you'll mar expensive rims if you're not careful. A good alternative to crazy-expensive ultra-high-performance tires.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
