Securing the fourth spot out of seven competitors, the Bridgestone Potenza Sport garnered a commendable rating of 'Good'.

The Bridgestone Potenza Sport ranked 6th out of 11 competitors in a comprehensive evaluation and was awarded a final rating of "Very good." This performance tire excelled in its sharp handling and high lateral support on wet surfaces, alongside secure and engaging handling when driving on dry roads.

Ranked #2 of 9
Finishing 2nd out of 9 competitors, the Bridgestone Potenza Sport distinguished itself with an excellent performance, securing the title of Test Winner. It showcased an exceptional capability on wet roads, with immaculate driving properties that contributed to faster lap times compared to its closest competitor, despite an increased tyre wear attributed to its high grip level. It also demonstrated superior performance in dry conditions, impressively achieving top marks in braking, handling, and safety, responding promptly and predictably to limit changes but requiring active corrections. Its grip, dynamics, and safety on wet surfaces were notably highlighted, showcasing how much is achievable in these areas.

This tire was celebrated for its exceptional cornering grip on both wet and dry surfaces, alongside precise handling characteristics that underscore its sporty nature.
