The Bridgestone Potenza RE050 is a high-end summer tire designed specifically for sports cars. Its Computer Optimized Component System technology maximizes performance by precisely balancing a number of attributes while its O-Bead design ensures improved uniformity and comfort. Additionally, the Potenza RE050's Long Link Carbon structure makes it more resistant to cracking and wear.
