Bridgestone Potenza RE050
This model is an ultra-high performance summer tire from Bridgestone designed especially for drivers of all types of sports cars, coupes, and premium sedans. It comes with a unique high grip tread compound, molded into a directional tread pattern to boost acceleration, braking, and cornering performance.
The continuous center rib and larger tread blocks have a role to ensure steering response and tire stability on the road. Due to circumferential grooves, along with lateral grooves, the aquaplaning resistance becomes lower by better water evacuation under the footprint for increased wet traction.
This tire has a special internal structure with twin steel belt construction reinforced by a spirally-wrapped nylon belt. The Bridgestone engineers are focused on low rolling resistance to deliver long life and efficient fuel consumption.
The Potenza RE050 is available from 17 to 19-inches with speed ratings of W and Y. This tire is also available with a built-in rim guard.
