    They were perfect when they were new. I felt like driving in train. My car sticked to the road it didnt matter if it was a corner or straight road. Efficient behaviour on wet surface as well as in puddles. I was crossing 1.5 - 2.0 cm puddles without notice. At high speeds and corners full of water you will be able to turn on every single tracking system. Over 100mph very loud.You can notice the sound just while driving 25mph.The maximum speed that i drove was 136mph. It grips very well. No slipping in corners. No squeaking. And now the biggest disadvantage: after 21k mi they feathered.

    I admit that I dont know what to say about these tyres. They seem to grip well on dry road and they are not bad on wet road as well. On the other hand there are plenty of better alternatives for Bridgestone RE050. These tyres are loud and that fact can be annoying when driving on highway. If they are a bit used they dont behave well anymore. I put 2 new tyres on my front axle and on my rear axle I had them with 4mm tread - they lose grip very easily in tight corners.

    Great tyre especialy on dry road. On wet road safe as wel but when moving off too fast wheels can wobble. A small disadvantege is their agressive tread which forces you to fight with the steering wheel while accelerating. Over 180km/h a bit noisy (much more noisy than Michelin Primacy - which I had before). Overall, awesome tyres.A bit expensive but they are worth their price if oyu like fast driving.

    I used a lot of different tyres. I have BMW 528 194BHP and Bridgestone RE050 behaves good on dry road. No noticeable noice. People complain that these tyres are loud... maybe they have poor vehicles. In my BMW i cannot hear anything. Attriction is low as well. I just worn my set and now I'm buying them again. If somebody wants to slip I advise them to buy Pirelli's.

    First Bridgestones in my life and last for sure. I dont care that they grip on wet and dry road and that they look nice. I dont care that they rub off not so fast but its just a nightmare after driving 10000km because of the noise. It feels like you have totaly damaged bearings. I dont recommend!

  • F
  • C
  • 71 dB
F C 71 dB

Fuel efficiency (rolling distance)

Fuel efficiency is rated from A to G on a colour-coded scale. The highest fuel efficiency rating is A (green; the lowest rolling resistance), while the lowest fuel efficiency rating is G (red; the highest rolling resistance). Rolling resistance influences fuel consumption and vehicle emissions; the lower the resistance, the lower the fuel consumption and exhaust fume emissions.

Wet grip

Wet grip is the tyre's ability to adhere to the road surface in wet conditions. The EU rating focuses only on the wet braking performance of the tyre. Wet grip is rated from A to G, where A represents the best braking performance and G represents the worst. It is one of the most crucial safety parameters.

Noise

Tyres contribute to the amount of noise a vehicle generates. Choosing a tyre with a good noise rating will lower the impact of your driving on the surrounding environment.
