Hey - The tires are Bridgestone Potenza RE05A in the rear and Bridgestone Potenza S-03 in the front. They came on the wheels. Accordingly they are maximum performance summer tires. They are said to have very stiff sidewalls. I slid the rear a little on a turn and they gave a nice smooth feel. Similar to the pirelli pzero's I had before. In comparison, my BFG KDW2s on the oem 18 wheels are not that smooth on a slide and feels like harder compound although the 18s ride softer overall.

At any rate, this all is good to me so I can save the wheels. This one primary reason I went away from 20s. Also, the 19s are lighter than OEM so it seems like not much difference in MPG vs. the 18 instead of a noticeable decrease with the 20s.

Now I need to make sure they are balanced and then cleaned

Regards,
Loay
