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.
