BRIDGESTONE 255/40R17 94V RE050A RUNFLAT

The Potenza RE050A RFT (Run-Flat Tire) is Bridgestone’s Max Performance Summer run-flat tire developed exclusively for selected BMW Z4 vehicles, as well as 3 Series cabriolets, coupes and sedans equipped with BMW’s sport package. The Potenza RE050A RFT is designed to provide temporary extended mobility for a distance of 50 miles at up to 50 mph even after a puncture has allowed complete air pressure loss. The Potenza RE050A RFT is also designed to combine responsive and predictable handling with good traction on dry and wet roads. It is not intended to be driven in near-freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice.

The Potenza RE050A RFT features a high-grip tread compound molded into an asymmetric tread design. Stable outboard shoulder elements, intermediate tread blocks and a continuous center rib provide responsive handling, high-speed stability and traction on dry roads, while circumferential and lateral tread grooves pump water out from under the tire's footprint to minimize hydroplaning and aid wet traction. A continuous rib adjacent to the inboard shoulder promotes even wear and resists inside wear generated by suspensions that specify negative camber alignment settings.

The tire's internal structure includes twin steel belts reinforced by spiral-wrapped nylon to stabilize the tread area and enhance handling, high-speed capability and ride quality. The structure of the Potenza RE050A RFT also features Bridgestone Side Support Run-Flat technology reinforced sidewalls to support the vehicle after a puncture causes a loss of air pressure.

Tyres stick like glue to the road, BUT the tread wear is absolutely terrible for a tyre at this price. (Posted on 24/09/2013)

I have never had any kind of issue with any Bridgestone tyres and I am on my 8th set of this brand. The only downside with these tyres is the price. But with tyres you usually get what you pay for. (Posted on 24/09/2013)

Apart from being a touch noisy, the ride and grip in all conditions has been excellent. I have looked at other brands but will stay with these tyres as I know exactly what I am getting. (Posted on 24/09/2013)
