Very poor performance

Purchased 4 new Potenza tyres for my LEXUS IS250C in Feb 2020, from Bridgestone Select, Castlehill. Those tyres didnt last for 3.5 yrs & or 15,000km.Mostly during Covid, not much of running.This time when taken for Rego inspect,I was told I needed to replace tyres.I normally do 35-40K on my previous vehicles.
I have switched to Michallin tyres now Show details

Fantastic

This tire is perfect for driving at high speeds compared to Michelin Primacy LC. The price is very good. I highly recommend to everyone. Show details

Excellent tire

Have had a set of these tires on my 06 Lancer 2.4 that is a workhorse car. Well maintained too I might add. 15,000ks on them so far and going strong, never let me down. They are just as good as the day they went on. Show details

A very below average tyre from Bridgestone

Had a pair of these Bridgestone Potenza Adrenalins fitted to the front wheels of my Toyota Aurion in early December 2020 including a full front & rear wheel alignment. After just under 2 years & 27,000km both are well on the way out with poor tyre wear on a FWD vehicle. A very below average tyre from Bridgestone. Its back to the Michelins or Pirelli's for me in the future. Show details

Best bang for buck tyre

I fitted a set of these (215/50/18) to my 2017 BN Mazda 3 around 12 months ago now. They absolute transformed the cars grip levels for a more than reasonable price. Seeing that I love a great handling car, I also tweaked the Mazda 3 by lowering 30mm on sports suspension, and dialled in some extra front negative camber via camber bolts . These mods then sent this humble car with the RE003’s as well into a complete next level of grip, handling and driving fun on the twisties. The tyres are wearing well, not noisy, and have a great tread pattern. Probably not for the track, but near perfect for the road. Will definitely buy again, and strongly recommend.

It is everything as advertised and beyond

Tyres are very grippy in all conditions at least on the right car, we have it on my mrs’ IS300H which is probably the right weight of a car for these tyres. Rear wheel drive as well considering in wet corners we do get to spin if the tyres aren’t good. So these ones pass the test!
The compound is definitely softer and we don’t expect to get more than 30,000km. We don’t have any shoes last that long so are also happy to get new ones for the car.
Cannot stress enough about the right tyres for the right car, these tyres are not for lighter vehicles, you just can’t get the best out of them. Show details

These tyres are fantastic

Have these tyres fitted to my ba falcon. Nice soft road feel, quiet and holds the cars line. Easy driving and cornering. Unbelievable performance in the wet, I have even pushed the turn to see how far they would go and no spin out or loss of grip. I got 90,000 km before replacement. Other tyres I have used only 40 to 50,000 know. Great tyre! Show details

Poor quality, horrible control in wet, low durability

I bought a full set of them for my Lexus IS350 Fsport, 2016 from Bridgestone Hornsby in 2020 at the beginning of COVID-19.
So we haven't used the car much, after 10k we noticed loosing the grip on the wet conditions.
Manufacturer's Warranty, Road Hazard Warranty and Wear Life Guarantee are not true and they asked me to pay $ 330 to change 2 out of 4 faulty products. Very disappointing. Show details

225/45R 18 95W XL BS RE003 Always have bought these for my Mazda 6. 34000 kilometres this set

Tyres perform pretty good in both wet and dry.
You get fair bit of road noise.
Durability my opinion is poor. Really think 34k is pretty low for easy driving
Worse since they left Australia.
I wouldn’t recommend buying these. I’m a slow learner lol Show details

Whats the correct tyre pressure for Potenza Adrenalin E 003 225/55R17/97w

Details

The Potenza Adrenalin RE003 has raised the bar even higher for sports performance tyres. It features cutting-edge technology in its unique tread pattern and tyre composition which creates an incredible driving experience for sports car drivers and enthusiasts.

The RE003 is set to build on the strong reputation of its predecessors, boasting improvements across the board, particularly in dry conditions.

The RE003 tread grooves quicken initial steering response with the wide centre rib providing precise handling and cornering performance. The main groove uses a wave like design for better drainage and anti hydroplaning performance. The driving experience is further enhanced with the silica based compound to improve wet performance while maintaining exceptional dry handling.

Features

Connection block: Increased handling stability provides powerful traction in dry conditions.

Wide centre rib and curved groove wall: Strengthens lateral rigidity for precise cornering performance.

Pulse groove and deflectors: Provides better drainage and anti-hydroplaning performance.

Silica tread compound: Improved fuel efficiency and wet traction.

3 and a half grooves: Optimises overall rigidity and quickens initial steering response.

What reviewers thought

Reviewers felt that these affordable tyres provided excellent grip and made sharp turns. They perform well in both wet and dry conditions. They can be on the noisy side, however, and a few reviewers had an issue with the tyres not lasting long before they needed to be replaced.
