Product description & features for Bridgestone Potenza RE050A1

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.

They are good. I understand I can get similar tyres with better fuel efficiency and noise ratings though.

Very well. It would be a bit unfair to compare them to the old ones as they were quite worn but grip, noise, handling, everything is much improved

Ok, haven’t used the car much. The purchase was to ensure I had a good set of tyres for the winter. Previous set still had plenty of mileage left with over 4mm tread

I have noticed a significant better ride quality and wet performance since changing from my worn tyres. I'm overall very happy.

Haven’t fitted them yet but I’m sure they will be fine.

I had the geometry of the car checked and re-aligned at the same time as replacing all four tyres. The difference in handling and overall competence of the car is very noticeable. I think I will have to pay more attention to the battering the suspension and tyres are taking from the potholed roads and get things checked more frequently. The car feels quieter, smoother and much more responsive. The dangerous tram-lining that was happening all the time before has gone. Very happy to recommend the tyres, Black Circles and their fitters. Do include a geometry check in the mix if you are replacing more than one tyre.
