Tire: Potenza S-04 Pole Position
Category: Max Performance Summer
UTQG (treadwear): 280 AA A

The Potenza S-04 Pole Position is definitely one of the top three tires for this performance category. This tire was developed for super high performance sports cars and sedans, but it will feel equally at home on cars with less power. If you enjoy driving your car on the edge, yet still want a tire that will last a long time, then I think this might be the tire for you. Since this is a summer tire, it is not recommended to be used in snow/ice, or at near freezing temperatures.

If you are a fan of tire technology, then you'll love what this tire has to offer. It offers a lightweight asymmetric tread design with huge interlocking tread blocks. It also employs an angular tread to enhance sidewall stiffness (increasing stability) and widely spaced lateral grooves to improve wet weather performance. Just take a look at a picture of the tire, you can clearly tell Bridgestone took a lot of design time to make sure this tire will handle wet weather. Expect to get over 40,000 miles under normal use, which seems like a lot for its treadwear rating, but thats the reason why so many people like this tire. Most drivers note that this is a pretty quite tire too, which is unusual for a tire with such good grip. While this tire is definitely not the cheapest, it is likely one of the few that is actually worth the money.
