First of all, many thanks mods for adding tyres onto this sub forum!

So my Audi S1 currently has Michelin Pilot Super Sports, always found them to be a great tyre, however the tech must be quite old now these now. I noticed Bridgestone released their new Potenza Sport tyre in the same size 225/35/18. Does anyone have any opinions on the new Bridgestone Sport or should I stick with what I know? Official ratings are the same.

Thanks
G

Thanks for replies. Anyone fitted these to their car recently? I had the old Potenza S001 when I purchased the car, which were OEM fitment, they were total garbage..wondering if these are as good as Pilot Sport, given much newer.

I believe the only concern from Jon (TyreReviews) was the low starting tread depth and the possible high wear rate...so you may save 20% on purchase, but replace them twice as often.

If it's not a matter of cost, then I'd go for either the Michelin PS4S (now available in some 18" sizes) or the equally excellent Goodyear F1 Supersport.

Thanks, PS4S only come with a 40 profile on 18” (need 35) otherwise I would have fitted these, as they are excellent tyres.. F1 supersport is a good shout..
