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

Personally I've found these tyres amazing, not sure about the people saying they flat spotted from sitting over a weekend, I would say that is a you and a tyre pressure problem. Properly inflated tires won't do that.
I've had the RE003 twice, first time on a FWD Saab 9-5 aero wagon, they were mental, transformed the car, gripped amazing in wet and dry. My previous tires would wheel spin when the turbo kicked in on traffic light drags, these just hooked up. Sold car before tires worn so don't know tire life.
A few years have passed, a few cars,

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

I purchased the re003 tyres and used them on the front of a lotus Esprit Amazing grip in dry. And a also great in the wet. Have recommended to other club members.

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.

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.

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.

Came with my car. Have since driven 5000km's in the few months on a mix of roads, including urban, highways, gravel and rough roads, with plenty of tread left.
When I first bought and drove in the car I felt the steering was a bit stiffer than my previous car (possibly because it was heavier) but after a while I didn't feel it was stiff anymore and was very fluid. Maybe I got used to it or it was the tyres doing something.
Really grippy in dry and wet. I'm not sure why reviews say that it sucks, because I haven't noticed anything off.
Takes corners with ease.
Very responsive handling (very fluid) and comfortable to ride in, with not much road noise.

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!

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.

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

These are bad, won’t buy them again.
These tyres were great, great grip, excellent handling but only a 1000 k’s, tyres developed run out and high shoulders as if they were over inflated but tyres were only inflated as directed by every tyre shop.
Tyres before they went airy were great but once they started doing their own thing, run out and high shoulders, my car started tracking badly, developed vibration in steering which resulted in me taking them back to Bridgestone Select Caloundra.
They tried faulting my rims but couldn’t find anything wrong with them.
They’ve replaced them

These tyres are terrible
I bought a set of 4 245/35/r19’s on the 27/5/21, I’ve only driven 1600 k’s on them and they have started distorting. They were great when I first got them and was the first time I forked out and bought decent tyres, should have stuck with cheap ones.
My car started tracking badly and noticed that the centre of the tyres started sagging as if they had been over inflated, I’ve always put 38 to 40 psi in them as recommended to me by nearly every tyre shop. All four tyres sagged in the guts and tracking bad on the road and then they have started to

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.
