Bridgestone Potenza RE050A

The Potenza RE050A is a Max Performance Summer tire designed to complement the performance of sports cars, sports coupes & sport sedans. While the Potenza RE050 is used as Original Equipment on the supercharged Mercedes-Benz S55 AMG sedan, a Potenza RE050A Scuderia version is used on the 12-cylinder Enzo Ferrari supercar, & a Run Flat version is used on the BMW Z4 sports cars & 5-Series sedans. The Potenza RE050A 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 RE050A features a high grip tread compound molded into an asymmetric tread design. A continuous center rib, large tread blocks & stable shoulder elements 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 RE050A 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 help blend uniform ride quality with steering response & lateral stability.
Bridgestone Potenza RE050A tires feature black sidewall styling with subtle black letters. They are V-, Z, W- & Y-speed rated depending upon their application & available in selected 50-, 45-, 40-, & 35-series sizes for 16" through 19" wheel diameters.
