The final tire I tested was the Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport. The Potenza RE760 Sport is an ultra high performance tire engineered for grip and stability in both wet and dry conditions. The RE760 handled the track with excellent traction and control. Even with my over steering and other questionable driving maneuvers, the RE760 allowed me to stay within the cones. I’d say the RE760 managed to meet or exceeded all my performance expectations. Although both the Potenza RE760 Sport and the Potenza RE960AS Pole Position delivered similar performance, the RE760 was clearly the best performing tire on the track.
The third tire I tested was the Bridgestone Potenza RE960AS Pole Position. The Potenza RE960AS Pole Position is a performance tire with a sporty look and year round traction. The RE960 performed really well on the track. As advertised, the RE960 delivered impressive wet grip and handling. In places on the track where I’d struggled with the G019 Grid and the Insignia SE200, the RE960 performed well. The RE960 isn’t the best performance tire on the market, but if you are looking for a performance tire with all season capabilities, the RE960 is a great option.
The second tire I tested was the Bridgestone Potenza G019 Grid. The Potenza G019 Grid is an affordable performance tire designed for all season traction and comfort. The tire handled the track pretty well. There were a few times when I over-steered and the tire struggled with high-speed turning, but overall I’d say it did a good job. The Potenza G019 Grid is certainly a step up in performance from the Insignia SE200.
