    Good tyres for my Camry?

    • +17 votes

      overkill for a camry but yes. be aware these tires will not last as long due to them being a performance tire but they will still last a fair amount of km's

      •  

        OK thanks, maybe I'll look for less performance and more longevity.

        • +12 votes

          i run re003s on my cars but i take public transport during the week so i drive less than 5k kms every year but they have saved me from a few idiots on the road cutting me off or slamming their brakes before indicating they are turning. insane amount of grip and worth the money over thousands in crash repairs.

          • +15 votes

            @HKS: Do bear in mind that tyres degrade over time too. At 5k kms a year a tyre will still have plenty of tread left in 5-6 years time, but the tyre compound would have degraded giving poorer grip and increased risk of delamination.

            and worth the money over thousands in crash repairs.

            The idiot's insurance company (or yours) would pay for it anyway. :)

            @HKS: Funny, I run pretty average joe tyres and do 2-3x the number of km's per year. And fortunatley havent been in a situation where "performance" tyres have been the deciding factor between a smash or not.

            Maybe:

            "those 5k km's is me beating the piss out of them so they dont last 5-6 years lol"

            Has something to do with it

          Serenity Plus or Ecopia would be better for Camry.

          •  

            @ShortyX: Good day ShortyX, I drive a Ford Falcon. Would Ecopia or Potenza Adrenalin be better for a Ford Falcon pls? And the reasons please. Thank you for your advice.

            • +2 votes

              @Apsley: I’m definitely not an expert but if you want better fuel efficiency and mileage, my suggestion would be the Ecopias (or Turanza Serenity Plus). Potenza are more suited for performance. We put Ecopias on our Sorento (previously Hankooks from factory) and we’re happy with them so far.

          •  

            @ShortyX:

            • 1 for the serenity plus. I bought mine a while ago with the same buy 3 get 1 free deal. Done around 55 000 kms on them and looks like I'll get at least another 7000 kms out of them on my VW Jetta. Much quieter and longer lasting ( 50 000 km ) than the Pirelli P7s that I had beforehand .
        •  

          I've had a set on my SV6 ute four years, still not worn to indicators and I've got 60,000km out of them.

    •  

      Try the Continental Ultra Contact 6, I put that on Honda Accord as I had RE003 before which was overkill for my car. RE003 were not good grip wise after they were close to 45k, that's what they lasted me. Try to look for a tyre that is OE (original equipment) recommended by your car manufacturer and you are all good.

      I got 4 x UC6 215/R16/60 for $533 including alignment, got Mycar (former kmart tyres) to match Tyroola's 15% Mother's day sale.

      Hope this helps you.

      •  

        Got the UC6 on my Tiguan a few months ago - love them. Very quiet on normal roads but noisier on coarse chip ones.

        Great grip so far, no issues at all!

        •  

          Noise on coarse roads is moderate where as on smooth tarmac's it's super quiet for me. Love the grips on wet and dry roads. The rolling resistance is quite low too.

          I would say I like them more than RE003.

          •  

            @powerful9990: Is there a metric/measurement that is advertised on tyres for riling resistance? And if so is it possible to compare different brands by it?

      •  

        When you get the price match what’s the scene with fitting and shipping price?

        •  

          I have to include the fitting cost, so I found the cheapest fitting cost and told them over the phone and they matched it. You need to call the store though, if you go through their online tyre bookings like then they don't.

      •  

        Some cars come with bad OE tyres so it's not always a good measure. E.g. my Toyota 86 came with same tyres they put on a Prius. It spun wheels easily in 2nd gear. Got the re003s and it never unsticks now

        •  

          Sounds like you need more power 😊

    •  

      I'm thinking of putting them on my Aurion

    Leaning towards these tyres because the PS4 is just too expensive.

    • +14 votes

      the PS5 is already out

      • +39 votes

        the PS5 is already sold out

    • +1 vote

      I was choosing between the PS4 and RE003 but eventually settled for the PS4 due to the $100 cash back offer. It worked out to be $1,000 for a set of 4 whereas RE003 is $867. Considering the PS4 lasts longer they are pretty much equivalent.

      • +6 votes

        The PS4 is widely regarded as the better tyre if performance is in mind.

      •  

        Been running these RE003s for the last 40k kms on an accord euro since 2018. They’re good for road cars on all kinds of road surfaces. Grip is still good, compound is soft and soaks up road bumps. For the $850 odd I spent back then it works well. I’ll replace them at 50k.

        However just bought PS4 like you for our other RWD European car. PS4 is on a different league - well worth the price difference. The grip, the steering response, the low noise, the comfort, the confident handling - its all just subjectively one level above the RE003s.

        If you’re happy with your budget, you’ve made the right choice with PS4. If I was buying for the accord though, I’d probably go for the RE003 deal as the PS4 would be overkill on a grocery getter.

      • +3 votes

        PS4 and Re003 aren't competing against each other.

        RE003 is a budget performance tyre, whereas PS4 is an Ultra High Performance Tyre, competing against - Pirelli P Zero, Goodyear eagle f1 etc. I think Bridgestones offering is a Potenza Sport.

        • +1 vote

          Most are stating PS4, however the real guru is PS4s.

          I have both in different cars (PS4s & RE003) unless you track, the RE003 is tops tyre when on sale.

        •  

          I am not saying they are competing against each other. Personally, I did a lot of research and came up with both PS4 and RE003 for my car. I preferred the PS4 but it depended on how much more it costs.

          Interestingly the RE003 RRP($289) is more expensive than the PS4 RRP($275) for my tyre size. It would have been an easy choice had it not for the RE003 buy 3 get 1 free deal and the PS4 $100 cash back offer.

    •  

      The PS4 wont roll as well as these do… Fitment on rims can be a bitch too

      Roughly every 2-4 months

    Why do they stop running promotion on the more durable Turanza tyres since Dec 2019?

    • +2 votes

      Subjective. Turanza and Potenza are two different levels of tires. Performance vs Fuel Efficiency

      •  

        How is it subjective?
        Durability = last longer = more mileage
        I believe mileage is an objective data

        • +1 vote

          Mileage/durability is yes but the choice between the two is subjective.
          People will choose the different tyres based on their different needs. Not everyone wants a longer lasting tyre over a better performing one and vice versa.

          Can't tell you why they regularly run the promo on performance tyres and not longer lasting ones though. Maybe the Turanza's sell themselves?

          •  

            @whitelie: I agree with you, but I've never questioned other's preference and I have never say Potenza is worse than Turanza
            I am just asking for a promotion on Turanza lol

            I've been waiting for 12+ months now
            My Turanza is now on 65,000+kms

            •  

              @TanedaR: Fair call.
              What is a set of 4 worth? Best they can do is $50-100 off a set, which if you're only paying $150/tyre for a smaller diameter, it could be 10-20% off. Given this promo is effectively 25% off, that's not a bad deal for something that lasts 3 times as long?

              •  

                @whitelie: Potenza lasts for 30,000km and Turanza lasts for 60,000km
                They are pretty much the same price for my vehicle, maybe a $10/$15 difference per tyre
                It's just a sedan for daily use, ie grandpa grandma, picking up kids etc.
                Doesn't make sense if I get a set of performance tyres for a pair of 75+ years old, haha

                •  

                  @TanedaR: It's could also be a safety vs cost decision, if you can afford a set of tires with a better grip may be worth buying it even for everyday sedan use.

          • +1 vote

            @whitelie: They used to run a promotion on Turanza at the same frequency as Potenza back in 2018/2019.
            Not sure why they stopped :(

            •  

              @TanedaR: Can you use Ecopia's?
              Tyre sales are running the same 4 for 3 promo. Only a few hours left though

        • +1 vote

          Yeah well I prefer performance, handling and responsiveness.
          The tread and compound is made differently on the Potenza. It is a softer compound that grips better and provides a more responsive steering at the cost of mileage.

          It's a waste to buy a high performance car and throw Prius grade tyres on. I'd rather Potenza's that last me only 20,000kms rather than getting 40,000 out of Turanza's

          Again it's all up to personal preference.

    Anyone know how these would go on a FWD Turbo car, particularly a 2016 Hyundai Veloster turbo?
    My current bridgestone supercat tyres suck and rob me of traction off the line and perform bad in the rain (these tyres came with the car when i bought it recently).

    • +3 votes

      Better than Supercat so you'll like that. Otherwise, this is a pretty good tyre. Not PS4, but good.

      •  

        Thanks, I was booked in at Jax for a set of Pirelli DragonSport tyres, would these Potenza RE003's be the better option?
        Bit of a noob when it comes to tyres haha.

        • +1 vote

          Having tried Dragon Sports, RE003 are a better tyre. In the wet is similar but handling and responsiveness is better on the RE003.

          •  

            @tempestswitch: Yeah have just been doing some research since making that comment too, seems like universally RE003's are the better choice, will cancel the appt for the Dragonsports, thanks.

              @Samowol: For a FWD hot hatch like the Veloster Turbo, you'll really enjoy a set of RE003's. I had them on my Focus ST and WRX and they were superb!

      I ran these on an i30n. They provide very predictable grip and handling

      Youre gonna wheel spin with these for sure

    •  

      I ended up getting Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5’s on my GTI, got 4 for 3 from Beaurepaires to price beat tyresales. Much better grip dry and wet coming from OE Bridgestone S001’s. Asymm 5 seem to be well regarded and much better value than other options I was considering (S007A, PS4, PS4S).

    • +1 vote

      If you can afford it, I'd go for the Pilot Sport 4/4S. I found the RE003's to be very poor as far as wet traction goes and louder (+ won't last as long). Love the Michelins on my GTI (stage 1, so obviously still get a lot of wheelspin but I can drive the tyres pretty hard in the wet).

  •  

    What Bridgestone tyre should I be looking at if I want good safety and wet weather grip for my 2019 corolla?

    • +3 votes

      Turanza is your choice

    •  

      What @SnoozeAndLose said. I have the Turanza Serenity Plus fitted to my 2011 Corolla (and have done almost 50K km in it so far, so probably due for a new set over the next year)

    •  

      Serenity Plus or Ecopia

  • +15 votes

    FYI some Bridgestone stores will let you buy and they’ll hold them for you for a period of time, or if you buy the tyres and have somewhere to store them you can just take them back for fitting when ready. Be aware though, tyres will degrade with age so dont plan on keeping them on the shelf for years….

    That said they do run promos every 6 months or so….

    I am surprised how cheap good quality tyres are these days… I just put a set of the RE003s on my commodore (245/35/R19) for $690… I remember about 12 years ago paying $450 per tyre for 235/40/R18s of the old RE040s. So these new tyres are significantly better quality, a larger tyre and rim but are 60% cheaper.

    Honestly I don’t know why people would ever run cheap quality tyres, the grip and stopping distance difference is staggering (I used to be a defensive driving instructor and we often had the chance to do brake tests between the same model of cars just with different tyres and stopping from 60kph would sometimes see 6-10m difference (which is a LOT at such a slow speed).

    Anyway if you need new tyres I’d recommend them. Just ring around dealers as prices do vary. In south east Melbourne I use Donnellans in Blackburn, they were $100 cheaper for the set compared to all the other Bridgestone dealers I rang in the area. On a $690 a $100 saving is pretty significant.

    Cheers

      Honestly I don’t know why people would ever run cheap quality tyres

      playing devils advocate here, I will try to answer why, although really you haven't defined cheap quality tyres, and in fact that could be read as quality tyres that are cheap, I will give some reasons that you may wish to give an opinion on

      1. Because typically you can get perfectly decent Korean tyres for under 100 bucks without waiting for a sale

      2. It everyone is a hoon or even drives fast, to the point that as a defensive driver they won't be in a position to really test the tyres beyond any decent pair (e.g hancooks or kumho)

      3. Some people (e.g John Cadogan for one) says that for general driving any main brand tyre is going to perform within an acceptable margin of any other branded tyre (IIRC)

      4. For some people, 600 or 800 is significantly more than 400 or less, that 2-400 bucks, especially if you are driving an older car, 800 could be 1/4 the price of a cheap reliable run about

      • +2 votes

        Valid points…

        I guess my main point was some people just buy the cheapest tyre possible tyre they can find and honestly the cheap Chinese tyres are truely rubbish. And if you have a normal sized tyre (say a 17 or 18” rim) then a set of potenzas are probably going to be in the $450-600 mark. Whereas a cheap Chinese tyre might be say $250-400 depending on the size…

        I just think that the vast majority of people should be able to afford the additional $200 to run quality tyres.

        Thing is, regardless of how good a driver you are there are always idiots on the road doing stupid things. Having the ability to stop and turn faster is a very useful safety feature in just such a scenario… and even if they don’t fully prevent an accident every 1kph of speed they can reduce results in less impact forces to the passengers.

        I just find it silly when friends who own fairly expensive cars ($25k plus) still insist on running super cheap tyres to save a few bucks.

        Edit - and to clarify my post was mostly directed at the no named Chinese tyres you see advertised on Facebook and gumtree…. while I still personally advise buying a more premium tyre, the mainstream tyres may be suitable for most drivers. But yeah, saving $100 a set by going Chinese is just a really bad idea.

        •  

          Agreed almost all the news about Chinese tyres is that they are not only worse by a margin but they aren't that economical either. Maybe someone who buys these tyres can comment and confirm? (at least on the longevity, as the performance might be more subjective)

    •  

      Honestly I don’t know why people would ever run cheap quality tyres, the grip and stopping distance difference is staggering (I used to be a defensive driving instructor and we often had the chance to do brake tests between the same model of cars just with different tyres and stopping from 60kph would sometimes see 6-10m difference (which is a LOT at such a slow speed).

      Totally agree. Your comment reminds me of this - I had a set of Maxxis MA-Z1s on my Magna about a decade ago, which had tremendous grip wet and dry. I did a defensive driving course with them on, and being FWD, the instructors came with us on the wet skidpan to yank the handbrake to get the car to lose traction. It took the instructor a few goes to get a good break in traction, and he commented on how hard it was to break traction.

      I wouldn't buy those tyres again (super stiff sidewall and very loud are not characteristics you want in a tyre on a daily driver), but it goes to show the difference a good tyre can make, even if you aren't driving like a hoon.

    any good on the Yaris GR? I'm thinking of increasing its ride comfort further as the current one i've heard rides a lot worse than PS4S standard on the Rallye. Unfortunately PS4S is still pretty scarce and rare, plus its also super expensive

      Not to mention PS4S is only available in 19 inch or above in Australia.

      the GR yaris comes with rubbish tires from factory so anything would be better and the re003s are very good for the money. ps4's are usually double the price from my experience

        read a few reviews online, they said that it's noisy. If it's noisier than the stock dunlops i don't think it would be worth it for me to swap them

      but Costco doesn't offer wheel alignment :(

      •  

        but that doesn't matter because your local tyre place will sell you a wheel alignment if you decide that the state of your existing tyres indicates that you need one.

        Costco offer free puncture repairs and 10K rotation for the life of the tyres 👍

    •  

      I think this deal is only through Bridgestone tyre shops

      •  

        Nah it's through all Bridgestone resellers. So Costco, BobJane, Jax, etc are running the promo too. Tempe Tyres do not participate in any of these promos.

  •  

    Great tyres along with the Michelin PS4. These RE003 are cheaper during the buy 3 get 1 free deals than the PS4 during their $100 cash back. However, the PS4 are much more durable.

    my car came with Potenza RE050A and cant see those with the offer, could Potenza Adrenalin RE003 be a good replacement ?

    •  

      What are you using the car for?

      If running a performance car then I would recommend sticking with the Potenza RE003 or RE050A or an alternative performance tyres.
      From my understanding the RE050A are OEM (never on special) but the RE003 are after market and do go on special.

      I used to run RE003 on my Integra Type R.

      The best advice I can give you is never run cheap tyres on a performance car and then expect to drive it as a performance car. Always get a performance tyre from a well known brand.

      •  

        Thanks pandadude, I've got RE050A on Commodore SV6 that came with factory upgrade to 20" wheels.

    •  

      My car came with those and the RE003s felt like a huge upgrade. Much better through corners in particular.

      I also like how Bridgestone outlets offer free rotation and send email reminders. Provided you don't get gouged on the initial purchase price, it's a nice point of difference.

    •  

      Runflats?

    •  

      I also have RE050A's. I was surprised that the "better" RE003 tyres have a lower retail price. In 275/35R19 it's $455 vs $377 before any discounts. If you do buy the RE003 I'd be keen to hear how they fair up

      •  

        I’ve had both back to back, and the RE003s are a better tyre in terms of grip, noise and price. However, and this is very subjective… the RE050s seem to last a little longer. I don’t have any “proof” or evidence, just that the RE003s seem to be a softer compound.

        I would strongly suggest buying the RE003s as the price difference alone makes it worth it. (Just confirm with Bridgestone that the load and speed rating is suitable, which I know it is for specific sizes but not sure for every size).

  •  

    I do have these on my sonata. They are very good during the rain and you feel tyres are sticking to the road. However, they don't perform very well during initial acceleration since my car is FWD and too much torque. Pilot sport is better in that case.

  •  

    Too many stock to clear for RE004?

    •  

      Lol no
