I liked the RE050A RFT better in the dry and also lasted very long (30000+ miles on a 335i) and I sold them in ok condition for $200
), but the ride comfort is not the best. RE050A has amazing dry grip, better than S001.
I guess I'm the opposite. I feel like the S001s are a bit grippier in the dry than my old RE050As. Both pale in comparison to my old RE-11s though. I don't understand the criticism of Bridgestone. They consistently make some of the best tires on the market.
