I just got a set of Bridgestone RE71R tires in 245/40-17 for Autocross for my Focus ST. Earlier this year I had a set of BFG rivals but they decided to crack on the seam so tire rack warrantied them for me and I went with these! First event with them is on Saturday, these are supposed to be the tires to get. First two pics are the BFG with a crack(tread splicing issue) last two pics are the new RE71r.
