Bridgestone 980AS

So I got the new Bridgestone Potenza 980AS installed on my car today and here are my very early impressions from driving around town:

Noticeably sharper turn in. I didn't get to take any high speed corners but the car feels more like my BMW coupe that is running on Michelins.

Much stiffer sidewall on these tires. You can tell they don't flex nearly as much as the Conti DWS06 I removed when you go over speed bumps.

Totally silent. The Conti's were starting to make noise with any speed and these are completely silent when new.

I will try to remember to update this review as I get a few miles and drive a few more roads. I put on a square set of 245/40-19s.

Well, it has been raining non-stop today and I can report that performance in the wet is excellent. Hydroplaning resistance is extremely good--which you would expect from a brand new tire--but also grip in the wet is very good.

I will report in more detail on handling if it ever stops raining....
