Bridgestone Potenza G019 Grid Tire
Bridgestone likes to emphasize the sporty nature of the Potenza G 019 Grid. It’s not all hype however, since this tire features handling characteristics befitting of this category. The tread design allows traction in all weather (save for glare ice and heavy snow). Three circumferential grooves as well as lateral cutouts allow hydroplaning resistance in wet weather. The lateral sipes give this tire some traction on light snow, though nowhere near what a dedicated winter tire offers. The focus here is sporty handling with all-weather capability, and the Potenza G 019 Grid delivers. On top of that, this tire delivers commendable tread life – good for those who prefer the fewest amount of tire replacements.
