Default 2004 Acura TL Bridgestone Potenzas?


Having read many horror stories about the Turanza EL42s, I noticed that
the Acura website specifies that a $200 option is "P235/45R17 93W High
Performance Bridgestone Potenza."

I haven't read any comments about these. Does anyone have any
experience with them on a 2004 TL? If so, do you know which ones they
actually are? TireRack shows RE05A, S-03 Pole Position, RE030, RE750,
RE020, G009, and RE950 models!

Actually, I just realized that information came from cars.com. However,
the Acura website says the A-Spec tires are 235/40VR18 95W Yokohamas.

I was just curious if people are having the same problems with the
Potenzas as with the Turanzas. I buy a set of winter tires on steel
rims from Tire Rack for the snow season anyway.

I have RE 750s on a Prelude. While they are generally an improvement over
the stock OEM R92, I cannot get them balanced properly. Two different shops
say they are balanced and this is the nature of the tire -- an intermittant
vibration in my seat between 70 - 82. I go to Michelin next and soon.

Yeah but the tires don't need insurance or gas like a cheap SUV does...
