BRIDGESTONE POTENZA RE050A II

Some 330 base models have BRIDGESTONE POTENZA RE050A II ( 225-45-17 )

Other cars have Continental Tires, it is luck to have a car with good tires.

I have seen the Pirelli and they look very nice, does your car handle very bad?

Bad isn't a fair description, but they squeal like a pig when pushed and don't seem to have as much grip as other tires I've had in the past. It's still better than most cars on the road, I'm just not used to tires that you can get to make a steady pitched howl all the way around a corner or on/off ramp.

I can't wait for them to wear out
