Top Bridgestone Adrenalin RE003 Review

Given 87% while driving a Subaru Forester (215/60 R16) on mostly country roads for 10,000 spirited miles
Fitted to my wife's Forester (which I drive occasionally). So, a sporty tyre in a mostly non-sporty context. I'm interested in tyres & when I've driven the Forester I've had a bit of an exploratory "go" on familiar twisty roads in dry & wet conditions. Conclusions?

Dynamically, it's a very talkative & responsive tyre that operates at low slip angles yet is not snappy when at the limit of its adhesion. Further, recovery of grip in that transition stage is easy to modulate. So, a nicely behaving tyre for both the enthusiast who can "play" it & the non-enthusiast who won't be caught out by untoward behaviour on the tyres' part in, say, an emergency avoidance manoeuvre (which I've simulated).

As for absolute grip levels, my impression is that it is way good indeed in dry condition, streaming wet "tread pattern" conditions & merely slick "compound" conditions. Buy with confidence.

Not that it is of any interest to me but the tyres didn't seem to me to be noticeably uncomfortable or noisy (my wife certainly has not complained & she is more concerned about these things than me). As for longevity, I think that, on current indications, they will be faster wearing than most competitors but that bothers me not at all as it's often the trade-off for a wet-grippy compound.

Given 94% while driving a Mercedes Benz E550, 4matic, airmatic (245/40 R18) on mostly motorways for 0 spirited miles
I love these tyres. I have bought RE001's, RE002's and now RE003's on our vehicles and I have never had a problem with any of them. As Bridgestone have stopped making the size for the rear of the Merc we now have S007A which are nowhere near as good. I really struggle to get the power down, even a bit of a push to get into traffic in the dry will make it light up the rear wheels and have the traction control kicking in.Bring back the RE003's!

Ford Falcon XR6 Ute (245/40 R18 R) on a combination of roads for 500 average miles
After 6 months and 20,000 kilometres my sport cup 2s were dead. Interesting that all four pretty much wore out about the same, without rotation. Fuel consumption increased by 10%.

Went with RE003 this time round after listening to what my daughter had to say running them in her Merc C300.

First impressions are the RE003 is a quieter tire and has similar grip to the sport cup 2 driving the same roads I always drive on. No hesitation with these, they feel good and might feel a bit more trusting in the wet.

Need to now monitor wear and fuel consumption.

I have used RE003 for a 5 years and already buy it again for second time. Handling is good. If I use high speed on a curve or lane change, I can feel and predict easily when it will become under or oversteer. For overall I'm happy to use it.
