Customer Comments

Liked : Decent quality tyres and at a reasonable price. Good rim protector for protecting expensive alloys.

Disliked : Tread compound is a little bit hard for ultimate performance. Steering feel is not as good as it was with previous Continental tyres.

Liked : Considering my car is big, heavy and quattro, the tyres perform well. I wanted a good quality tyre with winter approaching and so far they're great.

Disliked : Not the best looking tyre on the market but performance is more important than cosmetics. If they keep me stuck to the road I'm happy.

Liked : Find tyres give me more comfort in different road conditions along with the puncture guarantee I have used this make of tyre a few times on different vehicles except for the last time where I fitted another prominent make but didn't give me mileage before needing replaced

Liked : Brilliant tyres for grip and handling, espcially in this profile and weight rating. A firm ride, which I prefer to a soft one, but they always feel positive and able to cope with all weather and speed conditions. best tyres I've ever had.

Liked : Very happy with the Bridgestones. Much better grip than the Pirelli PZeros that I used before. Will probably stick with the brand now. They were fitted by National Tyres in Slough (Bath Road).

Liked : i replaced like for like ...bridgestone potenzas where fitted at the factory and i have kept with bridgestones .....will admit that if you had a rating for grip in the snow ,they would get a 1...i do realise that as a low profile tyre grip in the snow will never be good .... having purchased at least 4 bridgestones from yourself ..i have found that your delivery can vary wildly from the delivery day given
