Default Bridgestone Potenza's

Has anyone tried the bridgestone potenza's on a camaro? I'm goin for nice tread life but miore traction and grip than anything and i'm not willing to go nitto 555r's yet. Also should i go bigger than my 275's? I was thinking 295 or maybe even 315's? Help?

I think "Firenza" is a different brand of tires. Did you mean Bridgestone Potenzas? Those, I've had...they were great on the street, but had a little more road noise than average. Don't go to 295 or 315 unless you have 10"+ wide rims...
Good luck...

I believe those are what I had on my z06 wheels on my 02 Z. Been a few years, but I remember they were Bridgestones. 295's on 10.5" wheels. They hooked good after 1st gear.

**** lol i meant potenza, but yeah. It looked like they were a bit better than my Fuzion's that i have on now, a little bit more money but looked like it was worth it.

I would get the Firestone Wideoval. Almost the same tire as the Potenza RE750 for less money.

About the same traction? Has anyone had the Fuzion's and then switched to the Wideoval or the Potenza?

Switched 2 sets of fuzions to wideoval. Both guys were happy with the performance of the wideovals. The fuzions just dont seem to last very long.
