Original equipment on many high-performance vehicles, the Potenza RE050 is built with the pleasure of driving in mind. This tyre comes loaded with race-proven technology: UNI-T for outstanding wet and dry traction. With circumferential and lateral tread grooves, the tyre swiftly removes water from under the tyre's contact patch and helps minimise the risk of hydroplaning.
I already have these fitted on on the front of my civic type R and find that a 215 are a better suited tyre for the car and give longer life to the Tyre. would by again over a 205 45 17 RE040
Bridgestone Potenza's RE050's amazing
Very happy with the tyres, less tyre noise than with the RE040. Fast delivery very impressed.
have replaced my Pirelli's with these bridgestones, and the drive and grip are a lot better. My wheels were prone to spinning for the slightest reason before but with these Bridgestones the ride is a hell of lot better. Highly recommended over Pirelli's that degrade/wear out too quickly.
A hard tyre giving a harsh ride over some surfaces, but giving good cornering and straight line grip.
