    hey guys, i need a new set of tyres on my car (scrap the 18's they can wait). anyone got the bridgestone potenza gIII's on their car? i'd just like to know what they're like. they're expensive, and i just wanna know if they're really that good.

    Thanks guys.

    I've had some experience with them. They are good in wet and dry and look great from behind (treat pattern) and they're sticky as and have lips to protect your rims for guttering BUT they don't last as long as some of the harder compound ones. For 18s they are good if your gonna be driving your car lightly and do no towing. Great wet performance.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Have them on the 33.
    Great tyres wet or dry, but I don't trust the rim width specs.
    I had 225/45 R17's on the front with 8" rims. They were too small for that rim and looked stretched, so I fitted 255/40 R17's and they look perfect.
    Shame they don't offer any larger widths in 17's.

    The 33 only does 10k max per year.
    Tyres will probably perish before they wear out.
