I've had lots of S02 Potenzas - they were superb, wet and dry in everything from hot Imprezas to Porsches. Loved 'em.
And when the Michelins on my E36 Evo wore out (after 20K miles of hard pushing...not bad), I jumped on a pair of the Potenzas.
And, even after 500 miles to bed in....
...they're bleeding awful. They slide at the slightest provocation, especially laterally. I had a nasty moment changing down mid corner, when the back locked and let go - I was only doing 25mph...Admittedly, I did it on purpose tho'...
Now, tyre pressures are around 33psi, suspension is starting to go, and one of the rear shocks could do with replacing, but that shouldn't affect grip quite
as much as it does....IT's pretty wet and horrid around here, true, but they're simply not as good as the baldasfeck Mich pilots they replaced, which can't be right.
And I'm pretty sure it's not me being totally hamfisted...I have a shiny national race license (and a garage full of pots) that says it's not.
So, my question - is it just me, or are these tyres a) Not nearly as good as their predecessor, and B) Crap in the cold/damp?
