Features:

The Bridgestone Potenza S001 tyre offers ultra-high performance. Bridgestone S001 tyres ensure excellent safety and comfort levels to heavier ultra-high performance saloons, sports cars and supercars.

Fantastic grip levels: The Bridgestone S001 tyres exhibit an asymmetric tread pattern to deliver the perfect balance between dry handling and wet grip. The interlocking tread blocks on the outer tyre shoulder grip well on dry roads and allow for maximum handling characteristics. The continuous central circumferential rib contributes to precise steering responsiveness and heightened cornering response.
Extra driving stability: The Bridgestone S001 tyres internal structure consists of twin steel belts with nylon wrapping, which ensures high speed stability. This feature also reduces the rolling resistance, which makes fuel consumption more efficient, reducing the overall fuel costs.
Robust tyre sidewall: Active rubber inserts in the sidewall reinforces sidewall stiffness, which improves ride quality and offers greater grip when cornering. This also contributes towards increasing traction on both wet and dry surfaces, leading to greater braking responsiveness.
Protection against aquaplaning: The risk of skidding or losing control in wet weather conditions has been greatly reduced. The lateral grooves within the tread pattern help channel water away from the contact area to ensure a comfortable and stable drive.

Preferred the COntinentals I had previously, but these do look good and feel right.

A great tyre overall - a smoother ride than Michelins and better-wearing than Pirellis in my experience. The Michelins have the edge in wet conditions but I think the Bridgestones are the best value-for-money overall. Will definitely buy again if I can get them at the same price
