Bridgestone RE980AS

Have any 3rd gen owners tried the new Bridgestone RE980AS tires? Costco has a sale on them where you can get the 225/55/r17(Sport size) out the door for $427! Only thing I see bad on the Tire Rack reviews is some have gas mileage drop of 10-15%, which really seems crazy high, when you are driving a car that gets 40 mpg on the highway.

That's a good price, but they aren't that great in terms of tires. You will find the Michelin AS/3+ destroying the Bstone in real world performance, mileage warranty, noise, and pretty much any metric OTHER than cost.

9 cars and 2 parking spots, this doesn't make any sense.

With that kind of mileage drop, it must have some high rolling resistance. Didn't look bad by the specs.

Well they’ve been good so far except I ended up with a nail in the back tire that had to be patched ☹️
