Bridgestone Potenza RE960AS Pole Position Tire Review

The Bridgestone Potenza RE960AS Pole Position tire is Bridgestones ultra high performance all season radial that offers race car like handling with all season traction. UNI-T AQII technology and a Silica compound in the tread combine to give this tire excellent wet and dry performance.

One of the best benefits that drivers often mention, other than the high performance driving characteristics, is how well the tire handles on wet roads.

A unique dual layer tread to go with aqua tread grooves work together to channel water out from under the tire, giving you added confidence when the weather turns to rain, slush or light snow.
