Original equipment on many high-performance vehicles, the Potenza RE050A is built for the pleasure of driving. This tire comes loaded with race-proven technology: a tread pattern that promotes rapid water evacuation, variable dimensions in the tread blocks, and a smoother shape to reduce road noise. An asymmetrical tread pattern in the RE050A tread increases surface contact to enhance acceleration and cornering. Put this Potenza through its paces and discover what ultra-high performance really means.
