Potenza RE050 A is a high performance summer tire from Bridgestone. The technical design of the tire meets the expectation of the most demanding drivers of sports cars, coupes and sedans. Potenza RE050 A is optimized to perform well on both dry and wet roads. But it is not meant for snow driving. The tire slips out of control when driven on near freezing temperatures. The asymmetric tread pattern of this Bridgestone is designed from the ultra-grip tread compound. The continuous centre rib provides balanced and responsive driving. Providing quiet and comfortable driving experience, the lateral grooves protect the vehicle from the risk of aquaplaning. To stabilize the tread area, Potenza RE050 A is designed with twin steel belts reinforced by spiral-wrapped nylon. Finally, the fabric cord body helps in maintaining cornering stability.
