The Bridgestone Potenza S001 is an ultra-high performance tyre featuring an asymmetric tread pattern and innovative construction.

To meet the high demands of top of the range sports and luxury vehicles, Bridgestone have designed the Potenza S001 with stiff shoulder blocks to deliver fantastic grip when tackling corners. This shoulder block design is also instrumental in delivering the traction required for reliable and quick braking.

An off-centre straight rib has been used on the Potenza S001 to provide motorists with responsive and precise handling - whilst also ensuring the tyre's performance remains stable at high speeds.

To reduce the risk of aquaplaning when out driving in wet road conditions, Bridgestone have used a high angle and wide groove pattern in the tread. The channels created from this design work to collect and remove surface water from the contact path of the tyre.

Customer Comments

  • Grippy in both wet and dry, say no more!

  • I simply replaced the slashed tyre with a tyre of the same make and model to ensure the car handled as the factory intended. Black Circles website is very good, and the dealer was quick and courteous.

  • I changed from Goodyear runflats to Bridgestones a couple of years ago as the Goodyears were continually getting punctures which are not repairable on Rft. Bridgestones offer at least as good grip in all conditions and this is the second set I've bought, I actually managed to wear a set out

  • Very good tyre for the price. The tyre is brilliant in the wet. I'm running over 300bhp and they settle the power down really well. Very responsive and comfortable. They have really found the fine line between too hard and too soft. The side walls don't flex too much under heavy braking or corners. They really inspire confidence, you can trust you will stop in an emergency. Wear seems very fair too. Had them a few years ago on my 4 motion Golf and they were pretty decent in the rain, ice and snow. I could climb hills so easily and even stop well.

  • Much better than I expected. 1st time I've ever had Bridgestone tyres and Im very impressed so far. Would highly recommend.
