Bridgestone Potenza RE-01R

The Potenza RE-01R (with the "R" signifying Revolutionary) is the Extreme Performance Summer tire member of Bridgestone's global family of Potenza performance tires developed for enthusiastic sports car, sports coupe & performance sedan drivers. The Potenza RE-01R is designed to provide high levels of traction, responsive handling & driving control in dry & wet road conditions. The Potenza RE-01R is not intended to be driven in near-freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice.



The Potenza RE-01R molds a soft tread compound featuring a superior wear resistance polymer to improve both wet & dry grip while contributing to wear & durability. Semi-Slick shoulder blocks & a wide center rib enhance initial responsiveness, provide more surface contact & fortify lateral stiffness to reduce the irregular wear that can occur during hard cornering. Two wide, straight circumferential grooves with Hydro Evacuation Surface (H.E.S.) walls & multiple directionally aligned lateral grooves increase water evacuation to resist hydroplaning & enhance wet traction while Bridgestone's Racing Slit Technology born from F1 wet tire development, improves surface contact in wet conditions. The tire's structure includes two wide steel belts reinforced by spirally wound nylon to provide strength & uniform ride quality & high-speed capability while the sidewalls are reinforced by steel cord that helps resist lateral deflection providing responsive handling & cornering stability.
