Auto Bild Sportcars: Semi-Slick Summer Tire Test R19

The German auto magazine Auto Bild Sportcars tested semi-slick sports tires from four brands, including the recently presented Bridgestone Potenza Race, which was chosen as the OE for the Lamborghini Huracan STO. The new model was rivaled by the Goodyear Eagle F1 Supersport R, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 Connect, and Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R bearing an N0 sign, which indicates that this tire was homologated for Porsche.

    Verdict:

    Near-perfect handling performance (almost on a level with race car slicks). High-precision steering response, excellent lateral stability, and well-balanced dry performance. Insufficient grip on wet pavement. High wear. Exemplary.
