The Bridgestone Potenza RE050A is a high performance tyre, used as original equipment on a number of high end vehicles.

Bridgestone developed Potenza RE050A on the back of their race proven technology - making use of their UNI-T technology, noted for its reliable wet and dry traction.

To tackled the unique challenges of driving in wet conditions, Bridgestone have designed the Potenza RE050A's tread pattern with a asymmetric tread pattern that effectively removes water from the tyre's contact patch - reducing the risk of aquaplaning. The tyre features a continuous central rib throughout the tyre and large tread blocks to deliver accurate handling feedback and a stable performance - even at high speeds.

Inside the carcass of the tyre, Bridgestone have made use of twin steel belts to reinforce the tread area for enhanced performance at top speeds.

Potenza RE050A Reviews

I did 57,000 KM (35,500 miles) on a set of these tyres before they were due to be replaced. My car is a heavy car (nearly 2 tonnes) and was advised to expect 20,000 to 25,000 KM from them. At 30,000 KM they were still going strong. I had them rotated and balanced every 5,000 KM since day 1 which i think made a huge difference to their longevity. Tyre pressure was a constant 37psi for the whole of this time and the tyres were filled with nitrogen gas from day 1. These tyres did the job. Not the best I have ever had, but with a bit of care they were made to work. The car is capable to doing 0 to 100 KPH (60 MPH) in 5.2 seconds and i did not always take it easy with the driving. Tyre wear was even on all 4 wheels.
i had it oem on my insegnia 2014 , made 85000km and can do more maybe 120000km as my tread still around 6mm depth ..it was great for the first 20k then it became noisy and lost grip .. i wanted to change it but some way i didn`t .. after about 40k dry grip and handling improved and noise became some what less .. wet grip is not what i expected as it has gone early about 20k .. but for me it was not a problem i live in a hot country .. it was not great tyre but it was doing suffecient enough not to replace it , but now after 85k ... i just sais enough. for buying decision there is better choice for less money as mechline primacy4 or continental sportcontact 5.
I have put these on now a second time as I liked them enough to do so. Very robust tyres, wear evenly and in the dry give confidence especially under heavy braking. Also, I've gone over some very bad roads and some of these roads had huge potholes and these never punctured. Good pattern for water displacement but I would say the grip levels in the wet aren't what you might get from a uniroyal. Noise levels reduced with the re050 compared to a budget tyre fitted by previous owner. My car is quite heavy, not that powerful and has sport suspension and I have to try quite hard to break traction in the dry.
