New Tires for MY99 C4 Cab Tiptronic (US)

Recommended Posts

I just purchased a MY99 C4 Tiptronic with 38,000 miles. It currently has the OEM Pirellis. I am trying to decide between the Bridgestone Potenza RE050A Pole Positions and the Bridgestone S-02 that some members of RennTech have made good comments about. The S-02s are $75 per tire more, and they have the Porsche approved "N" designation. The RE050A tires don't have the N designation. The car is out of warranty so I'm not concerned about warranty issues if non "N" tires are used. I don't track the car and simply enjoy driving winding mountain roads as I visit some of the great wineries in the Northern CA area. Are the RE050A tires good enough, given I drive in dry conditions and don't really care to push the car to its ultimate limits?

:lol: The $75 is for them to stamp the "N" designation on the tire.

I use Bridgestone Potenza S-03 Pole Positions and I like them a lot. The Bridgestone Potenza RE050A Pole Position is the new replacement for the S-03's. From what I have heard they are even better. I personally would go with the RE050A.

Thanks, Loren! You are very helpful and provided a fast response. I'll be buying the RE050A.
