Much, much better than the terrible Bridgestone Potenza's fitted to my GTI.

Most performance Golfs built for the UK market are supplied with Bridgestone Potenza S001 for 18" and Pirelli P Zero for 19" Santiagos wheels.

What's so bad about Potenza's? I was under the impression they were decent. Clearly I'm sorely mistaken

After about 5K they started to loos contact on wet and started to make lot's of noise
Grip under dry was ok but when comparing them to the PSS it's far above them

I've got S001's on my current Mondeo ST, and I've been very happy with them?

Mine came with hankook. I feel the ride is rough at highway speeds and at times I may feel slight vibrations. I took the car in but they told me it was fine, I have a feeling these tires aren't too smooth. Unsure if it's just me or anyone else out there having similar tires having similar experiences. I'm not comparing the car to a Cadillac or anything but at times it doesn't feel smooth rolling at highway speeds.
