Ultra-high performance from Bridgestone POTENZA RE050


8

Bridgestone RE050 tyres are high performance tyres from Bridgestone Tyres for high performance sports cars, executive saloons and super-sport models. The tyres have been specially developed to support your demanding requirements on such cars with adequate performance and safety levels. The Bridgestone RE050 tyres are original equipment on some of the world’s leading performance oriented cars such as the Mercedes Benz S55AMG and the Ferrari Enzo super car. The tyres hardly need any further proof for their performance, do they? The Bridgestone RE050 tyres are equipped with a number of racing track technologies (suitably modified for on road usage) to deliver maximum performance in areas of corner handling, safety and control on wet and ride comfort.

Handling characteristics: The Bridgestone RE050 tyres exhibit a directional tread pattern, with large rectangular shoulder blocks. These blocks confer responsive handling on dry roads with exceptional high speed stability, particularly during cornering.
Wet safety and control: The Bridgestone RE050 tyres tread patterns consists of circumferential and lateral tread grooves that serve as excellent water evacuation channels. As a result, the contact patch is enhanced, reducing the risk of aquaplaning and providing good traction and control on wet roads. In fact, the Bridgestone RE050 tyres use Bridgestone’s innovative UNI-T racing technology that ensures superior traction on wet and dry surface and provides superb control and superior braking responsiveness.
Ride comfort: The Bridgestone RE050 tyres tread is optimised to minimise tyre noise levels, resulting in a quiet ride that contributes to the ride comfort. Another component of ride comfort is the smoothness of the ride. In the Bridgestone RE050 tyres, this comes from Bridgestone’s proprietary DONUTS technology that comprises an innovative O-bead roundness. This basically ensures that there is snug fit between the tyre and rim eliminating vibrations that may occur with other tyres at high speeds.

Additionally, the tyres use CTDM (Comprehensive Tyre Design Method) technology that essentially uses computer software to arrive at the ideal combination of various tyre elements such as tread design, compound, construction and structure casing shape etc to perfectly suit the end user’s requirements.

This pattern may have options that are suited for Audi, Bentley, Ferrari, Chrysler, Porsche, Jaguar, Mercedes-Benz or BMW vehicles. This pattern may have extra-load capabilities or be available as a Run Flat. Please check for the appropriate symbols in the tyre search results.

I had no puncture after 5000 miles.

Bridgestone tyres are known and good brands .i usually using Dunlop brand but this time I found bridgston in a fair price to compare somewhere else ,after placing my online order the tyres did not arrive on time and in two different weeks the national branch offered me a pair is ready come to pick up and second pair is coming .i did not accept and after some days up and down I asked for same patterns of four tyres and when I picked up them ,just noticed the three are made in poland and the solo tyre is made in Japan. I compare the price with other dealers and found out the Japanese one are more expensive than Poland,however both are from Bridgestone manufacturers. In total not happy with my shopping but try next time find the right ones.
