The Bridgestone Potenza RE050A1 is a tyre designed for sporty demanding drivers who are looking for a slick, high performance from their tyres and is suitable for a wide range of car models - from the Enzo Ferrari to the new VW Golf.
The Potenza RE050A1 features a new tread compound which provides very strong levels of grip. The tyre's shoulder design and intermediate blocks provide responsive handling and reliable stability when travelling at high speeds.
Aquaplaning is less likely thanks to circumferential tread grooves which disperse surface water from the path of the tyre.
