I had actually planned to run another set of Q3s, but my vacation snuck up on me and I had to slap on tires we had on hand. (Sometimes the calendar does that to me.) But running the Bridgestones was certainly no hardship; they’re sticky and reasonably long wearing as these things go. By the end of my September vacation (plus a lot of commuting and a quick up-and-back to Big Sur, California), the S20s were totally done after 2,882 miles. Actually, the front was fine, but the rear was already beyond the wear bars. Comparisons? A little hard to make without a true back-to-back ride, but my sense is that the Bridgestones are a bit stiffer, giving the BMW a firmer ride, and that their profiles slow steering a very small amount. It’s unlikely you’d notice either characteristic unless you went looking. After the Bridgestones were done, I went back on a Q3s, though we’re being told that this winter will be a soggy one in California, so it’s very likely that I’ll return to sport-touring rubber for improved wet grip.
