    Thats the general consensus!

    We are going to be stocking small numbers in the common sizes, but a back order is recommended to make sure you dont miss out on stock or your size!

    the pilot super sport competes with the re050A & s001

    to be fair, michelin doesn't have a competitor for the RE-11, in regards to performance

    the pilot sport cup & cup+ competes with the potenza RE-11S & RE55S

    ^ Dedicated for circuit use only. Looking at the threads, I would assume it could be awesome on the track but on normal roads, definitely not especially when wet.

    all tyres mentioned so far in this thread are street legal, though like all track orientated tyres, the re-11, re-11a, re-11s & re55s obviously have less aquaplaning resistance

    having said that, the re-11 and re-11a are more like road tyres with much better dry handling characteristics but still capable of water drainage, as they have two wide circumferential grooves (unlike the heavily motorsport orientated re-11s and re55s)

    Well I ran these on my 135i previously for about 2 years through all seasons and had no issues even with circa 300kw.
    The KU36 previously were awful unless hot but the RE11 i found were actually quite usable tyres all year round.

    Great tyre go for it!

    "The Bridgestone Potenza RE-11 is Bridgestone’s premium performance tyre strictly for circuit use. One of the major features this tyre provides is the compatibility with dry grip and drainage performance by embracing seamless stealth pattern design".
