Bridgestone Expedia S-01 Tire Review

The Bridgestone Expedia S-01 tire combines a Z speed rating to go with awesome handling and cornering abilities to produce an ultra high performance summer driving tire. How good is this tire? The fact that it is original equipment on the Ferrari F348 pretty much sums it all up.

The aggressive tread design provides incredible dry road performance. Cornering power is among the best tires in its class, while wet pavement stability is also way above average.

Prices on Bridgestone Expedia tires range from a low of around $215 for the 17″ series, to above $300 on the 18″ models.
