Original equipment on many high-performance vehicles, the
Bridgestone Potenza RE050 is built for the pleasure of driving. This tire comes loaded with race-proven technology: UNI-T for outstanding wet and dry traction, a tread pattern that promotes rapid water evacuation, variable dimensions in the tread blocks, and the smoother shape to reduce road noise. Put this Potenza through its paces and discover what ultra-high performance really means.
Run flat tires
The run flat property is given by a reinforced side wall that preserves the shape of the tire in case of pressure loss, thus preventing the tire from falling off the rim. That means that in case of a flat tire, it is possible to drive another 250 km running at 80 km/h. All run-flat tires have the RSC-symbol (Run Flat System Component) on the sidewall. Run-flat tires don't need any special rims, but are only functionable with cars that are equipped with a functioning air pressure control system.
