Joshua Knutson says:

These are rebranded Bridgestone RE003 from europe

ItAintGaY says:

Grip is good? From stand still acceleration?

Jamal Morris says:

Should I try them on my 16 charger v6

Jose Martinez says:

what rim/tire size set up do you have?

2wrdr says:

Yeah….But do you like the tires? 🙂

Tommy Judkins says:

After almost two months, are you still loving these tires?

Mark Carruthers says:

Bridgestone RE003 for the US.

J M says:

what are you smoking in the video

agnar150 says:

This guy is a danger to everyone on the street. He drives with the traction control off, Trumptard alert.

Thomas Kong says:

how are these versus something like the michelin pilot super sports?


I got these put on my 6 series. Man they grip like crazy.

btownballer27 says:

I will be picking up a set tomorrow. I hope they are as good as they are rated to be. I like the design (not necessary) and they are 81.70 a tire for my car. super affordable for my rice burner! I will be testing them at an autocross event at the end of the month, I may also do a follow up on their performance!

Dougomite says:

Haha, what if the kid was a ghost?

Tyler Nelson says:

I have these tires on my 15GT performance pack and I love them. They are good blend of everything

Cha Due says:

Love to see someone love their car and all the cools things on it!!!  Great Video!!

Dylan Knight says:

I have a set of these coming in in a week. Itll be nice if they do grip that well in a straight line!

Mike Hundredson says:

Meh I’ll stick to my RE-11

bryan MP says:

got these bitches on my 5.0 too. awesome tires, far better than my falkens.

Matthew Ahmadi says:

How much horsepower does your Mustang have? I have a GT500 and was thinking of getting these tires, but I’m unsure if they’ll hook up with 700hp. Thoughts on that much hp with these tires?

pugzmccormick says:

just bought a set today after your review I can wait to slap them on
01 volkswagen mk4 GTI

Tom Kubik says:

firestone/ Bridgestone   always make  great tires…..     top ratings  at tire rack…    been on them for years   ride nice tons of grip…. great in the rain and  last to0 …they  always keep there pressure  and stay in balance ..  you’ll get 35.000  to 40.000  if your in there ever 5000 miles   for service    that’s the key….

Red Man says:

I used to run summer tires until I got some Mickey Thompson ET Street SS on the back, and now I’ll never run anything but a drag radial.

Jason M says:

So you are not breaking the tires loose on the 2/3 up shift?

Fire Ball says:

What psi you run them on ?

kameenadesi says:

hey man which indy 500? is this the oval? have you tried the other?

Phillip Pagel says:

Another Hill Billy review.

Mark Oltjenbruns says:

Doc,thanks for the info on the tires.Just put the m on my GT 500 with 631 HP and they hook. The original Good Year F1 were like ice !

Gilberto Morales says:
