Latest Bridgestone Potenza RE 71RS Reviews

Given 77% while driving a Skoda (235/40 R18) on a combination of roads for 18,600 spirited miles
Dry grip is one of the best available. Stiff sidewalls make corners a breeze and on point. Soft compound makes the tire very easy to pick up nails so patching the tire was a frequent affair. The surprise was it's wet grip. No aquaplanning at all over standing water. Grips the same up to about 100kmh. Only downside of this tire is it's wear. Tires lasted 30000km. Would have gotten this again if the prices for this tire didn't soar so much

Given 89% while driving a Toyota GR Yaris (255/35 R18) on track for 800 spirited miles
I bought these tires as my go to track tire (Yokohama AO52) was out of stock and at least 6 weeks away and I needed a track tire for my new GR Yaris. I have had these tires on for a year now and have done 4 track days and around 7000km with the tires still ok. They maybe have a couple of track days left. I will be buying these again as I find them much better than the Yokohama in the wet and the.perormamce on track is just as good with good wear characteristics. On track they get up to speed very quickly and I find they last for longer stints than the Yokohama as well. A lit bit noisy on rough or course chip bitumen and being a track focused tire not the most comfortable but still ok for daily driving. Highly recommended.
