Bridgestone Potenza RE040

The Potenza RE040 is an Ultra High Performance Summer Original Equipment tire designed to complement the performance of sports coupes & sports cars including the Acura NSX, Audi TT, BMW 3-Series, Lexus SC430, Nissan 350Z & Toyota MR2. The Potenza RE040 was developed to provide good traction along with responsive & predictable dry & wet road handling. It is not intended to be driven in the snow.
On the outside, the Potenza RE040 features a high grip tread compound molded into a subtly directional tread design. A continuous center rib & large rectangular tread blocks provide responsive handling, high-speed stability & traction on dry roads, while circumferential & lateral tread grooves are aimed to pump water out from under the tire's footprint to minimize hydroplaning & aid wet traction. Internally, the Potenza RE040 features twin steel belts reinforced by spiral wrapped nylon to stabilize the tread area & enhance handling, high-speed capability & ride quality while minimizing weight. The fabric cord body & hard rubber sidewall filler helps blend uniform ride quality with steering response & lateral stability.
Bridgestone Potenza RE040 tires feature black sidewall styling with subtle black letters. They are V-, Z, W- & Y-speed rated depending upon their application & available in 55-, 50-, 45- & 40-series sizes for 15" through 18" wheel diameters.
