This model is a great summer tire designed especially to deliver maximum summer performance in terms of acceleration, braking, and handling. It comes to satisfy the needs of drivers of all models of sports cars, coupes, and sedans who are looking for an unforgettable driving experience.

The RE050A has a high-performance tread compound that features L.L.Carbon to reduce wear resistance, to provide uniform wear and improved wet handling capabilities. This compound is molded into an asymmetric tread pattern and larger tread blocks designed to boost dry traction and cornering stability.

For safety reasons the Bridgestone uses a wide circumferential and numerous lateral grooves around the tread to reduce aquaplaning resistance and to provide the best traction and handling response at the same time.
