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.


Customer Comments

  • They seem to performing as we expected

  • Car feels like new again, very quiet, great in cornering, braking and acceleration without slipping. Great tyres and a great service.

  • Good deal on some very good tyres. Happy customer!

  • was very annoyed when these bridgestone run flats picked up a nail right on the edge. so had to order the same again for my rear wheel. i rate bridgestone over pirelli because the rubber compond wears slower than pirelli and so last longer.

  • Great grip, great mileage. Expensive.
