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.
