The Bridgestone RE-11 Tires arrive at Apollo Performance

We received an email from our generous sponsor, Rod from Bridgestone, notifying us that our 16 tires were ready to be picked up… WHAT?!?! 16?!?!?! Initially we requested for a set for each WRX but since it was a longer weekend of Time Attack, we were ready to pick up the super sticky RE-11 tires.

Here’s Yukio’s 245-40-18 Bridgestone RE-11 tires were quite beefy when they came in. Their contact patch was quite noticeable and the 245 width seems a tad wider than the standard 245. The rubber was soft to the touch which will aid us in some great gripping.

Gino’s RE-11’s where the beefier (and maximum width allowed for Street All Wheel Drive) 255-35-18 tires. They were very wide. In fact, when Danny measured them, the contact patch was close to 10 inches! This will be a great tire.

We would like to thank Bridgestone Tires for their generous support and we hope really use these tires to their potential at Redline Time Attack Round 1 in Buttonwillow!
