Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport Tire Review & Rating

Designed for high performance sports cars and sedans, the Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport ultra-high performance tire is built for drivers looking for excellent handling and cornering power, as well as a more comfortable ride on the highway.

Bridgestone uses the latest in tread compound technology with the RE760 Sport. The tread sports an asymmetric design and a 3D center block that increases contact with the road surface. Inside Offset Twin Ribs and a stiffer sidewall provide enhanced steering response and stability. Cornering grip is increased through a Semi-Slick Shoulder design, which this case and is often mentioned a strong point in other driver reviews.

Bridgestone RE760 Sport

Better traction on wet pavement is improved by wide straight grooves that evacuate more water from under the tread and aid in hydroplane control. The tread pattern has also been optimized to reduce outside road noise and provide a more enjoyable overall driving experience.

Inside the tread are two belts made of high-tensile steel and wrapped with nylon. This results in enhanced handling and stability at higher speeds, while also giving a smoother overall ride. Bridgestone has a wide array of 16-20 inch sizes available, and all sizes come with a W-speed rating.

Pros

  • Excellent dry surface traction and cornering   
  • Wet road grip is very good   
  • Tire rides comfortably and road noise is low   

Cons

  • Not for use when weather turns cold and snowy   

Overall Thoughts

The Potenza RE760 Sport does what it says it will do; provide excellent wet or dry grip and handling. Steering response, braking and acceleration are all very good, and despite the lower profile of the tires, they ride comfortably and quietly. Tread wear has been an issue for some, but others say to expect 30K miles or more. We have not seen this to be a big issue at all.

Overall this model from Bridgestone is near the top in the high performance summer tire category. Note: the RE760 is a summer tire and not designed to be driven in winter weather conditions.
