  • Affordable Performance Tires

    Oct 31, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Quiet, comfortable, firm handling with performance-rated tires
    Cons: Make thumps over tar strips

    Summary: The Bridgestone Potenza RE92 has been a good value in a performance tire for several years. I now have two different sizes of this tire on two different cars -- both Subarus -- and I also had this tire on my old Audi 5000. Bridgestone fell onto ... read more

  • Potenza Re92 as a Rain tire.

    May 2, 2010 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Cost! Best Wet tire I have ever run on a Motorcycle. Does not Grove Track.
    Cons: Hard to mount on Motorcycle rims, all Car tires are. Softer sidewall would help.

    Summary: I live in the Pacific Northwet, you know, that place that is green all year. Anyway I shop for tires by their wet grip more often than their dry. I have tried most of the all-season tires out there. I currently have Firestone Firehawk Indy 500's on the ... read more

  • Bridgestone Potenza RE92 tire review

    Dec 19, 2009 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: good performance in all categories
    Cons: no cons in particular

    Summary: I recently replaced the Bridgestone Potenza RE92 tires in size 195/65/14 on my 1996 Honda Civic. I bought the car with these tires on them (about a year old) and was very satisfied with the tires over the 3 and a half years and 45,000 miles despite the ... read more

  • OEM = overly economized mess

    Jan 12, 2008 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Smooth ride
    Cons: Poor wear, weak sidewalls, low reliability

    Summary: It is nothing short of a crime for Firestone (Bridgestone) to manufacture a tire with such weak sidewalls. While Firestone claims that they are good tires, it seems almost impossible to find them since they are only OEM's. If they were a decent tire, ... read more

  • The price of OEM, say it isn't so.

    Jul 16, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Smooth , quiet ride.
    Cons: Traction in wet, nail attracting tires.

    Summary: Ok.... Leased a 2007 AWD Subaru Impreza and they stick OEM Bridgestone Potenzas on here. Ouch.... Not the Good Potenzas either like on the Sti. We get the OEM RE92A versions. 205/55/16 V89 - 200 wear rating I believe. You can look it up on ... read more

  • Almost totalled my car twice because of these

    Jul 9, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: low price, decent looking
    Cons: high road noise, bad wet weather and HORRIBLE snow traction

    Summary: These came with my 2001 Toyota Solara. They had only 10k miles on them, so why not squeeze another season out of them. First thing I noticed was these are a bit loud. I could hear the tires running rough even on fresh new pavement. Thennnn it ... read more

  • Wet Weather Handling

    Nov 16, 2005 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Good dry grip and handling, only moderate noise. Wet weather handling is standard.
    Cons: Substandard wear resistance (dependent on tire rating).

    Summary: I notice many reviews slam the Bridgestone Potenza RE92's wet weather handling and traction. I have a 2003 Subaru Impreza WRX with these tires. I've experienced no outstanding problems with these tires in wet weather that I would not experience with ... read more

  • Ditch these tires ASAP

    Mar 15, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Relatively low tire noise, Decent ride quality
    Cons: Horrid wet weather traction, soft sidewalls, abysmal snow traction

    Summary: As I stated in my review of the 2002 Maxima, one of the weakest links to these cars is the tires. The Bridgestone Potenza RE92 has been standard on A33 Maxima SEs with the 17" wheels since 2000. The size is 225/50/17 which happens to be a unique size. ... read more

    Rated Show
    Pros: On this car: quiet, good handling, good traction, reliable.
    Cons: Price too high for 65,000 mile tires.  (actual miles not rated)

    Summary: These tires were OE equipment on this brand new car when purchased.  The car has slightly over 65,000 miles. The tires have performed well.  I have noticed no noise on black asphalt roads. They were rotated at 5,000 miles and twice more ... read more

    Rated Show
    Pros: Great tire, good traction in wet and dry.
    Cons: None ... maybe the price, but then again look how long they last.

    Summary: Very nice tire. Have 111,780 miles on these tires and I have some tread left. these tires are the ones that were on the car when I bought the car in Mar/2004. Just had a flat last week, so decided to get 4 new tires. I've had RE92 on my last 3 Subarus, ... read more

  • Origional on My Subaru

    Jul 30, 2007 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Great Learning-to-Rally Tire
    Cons: Could be dangerous in an "open road" setting

    Summary: The Subaru Outback XT is a great car, and these are great tires to learn to drive it with. You can drift corners at extremely low speed. I feel that this is an important safety feature. With good tires, you would have to go fast to drift corners in a ... read more

  • Not in a league with the best Potenzas

    Jan 30, 2006 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: -Nice looks -Good dry traction
    Cons: -Poor wear for a tire with this level of traction -Wet performance -Handling

    Summary: Be careful when purchasing tires. A name like "Potenza" or "Energy" or "Eagle" is applied to many models of tire, often with very different characteristics. This tire, the RE92, is original equipment on many cars and is offered at some major club stores ... read more

  • To the Trash Heap After 22,000 Miles

    Jun 22, 2005 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Came "free" with my new car.
    Cons: Needed replacement after 22k miles, bad traction in wet weather.

    Summary: These tires came with my new 2003 Toyota Camry. My mechanic friend verbally trashed them immediately, then literally trashed them two years and 22,000 miles later. A nail in a bad spot which was pulled and plugged forced the issue. While replacing ... read more

    Rated Show
    Pros: Not much
    Cons: dangerous, extremely bad in water during mild rain. Would not buy.

    Summary: I have a 2005 Subaru Impreza with Bridgeston Potenza RE92, 16 inches and they will get me killed. On rainy day, way below speed limit, I am all over the place when I drive. Today, I ended up in the opposite lane and had to work hard to regain control ... read more

  • Poor OEM compromise

    Nov 2, 2004 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: dry grip and low noise
    Cons: awful winter traction and so-so tread wear

    Summary: I got these as original tires on a Subaru WRX. Handled well in the dry for an all season tire. At highway speeds in the rain the tires felt vague and disconnected, but never did anything to surprise me. However, in the snow they were just terrible. They ... read more
