Yup, the gang was talking about it that day. Still will be a dry tyre. Resemble the RE-11 shoulder pattern but much more mild. RE-11 the zig zag groove much larger.....:driver:

Wow!! i hope this re000003 price will be competitive.. but knowing bridgestone.. haih :banghead:
Should not be that bad nowadays if not mistaken. I know when RE-001 came out, they even warn the tyre shop on selling cheap. I did not use because of it. Then I got one set for my friend, tyre shop bill full price less trade in even though no tyres traded in, just to come to lower price :smokin:.....hahhahahhahaha :biggrin:

Hello, please read carefully. Go and google RE-001 picture. This model was sold before your RE-002 replaced it....:banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead: :banghead: :banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead: :banghead:

As for RE-11, there may be some around brought in by parallel importer or race enthusiast. Like Hankook RS3 I could not find them, but my race kakis say some race organizers brought them in and only sell to those registered for their races.....:biggrin:

Yeah I know Re001 was before re002. Just a thought though.

As for the RE-11, have to look around harder.

Aggressive looking tire, must be more for dry grip but hopefully not too bad in the wet too. Hope it has the sizes I need and not at high prices BS used to sell (but I doubt both!). What are the tread wear and traction rating of this?

from japan's website, rolling resistance is C, and wet is B.. same as S001.. don't know what rating is this, definitely not UTQG..

got a report that size 195/55R15 is made in indonesia, so expect price to be not too expensive?

Just checked. Is it a predecessor of RE-001?

B and C? That doesn't look well somehow. Unless the Japs have a higher requirement for their tire ratings?
