Tire Performances: UHP
Original equipment on many high-performance vehicles, the Potenza RE050A RFT 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 RFT tread increases surface contact to enhance acceleration and cornering. Run-Flat technology allows the Potenza RE050A RFT to continue to operate safely at a speed of up to 50 mph for a distance of up to 50 miles under normal driving conditions with zero inflation pressure. Put this Potenza through its paces and discover what ultra-high performance really means.

Features and Benefits
- Circumferential tread grooves - Evacuates and channels water efficiently to help reduce hydroplaning and to improve wet traction - L.L. Carbon (Long Link) - Helps improve tread wear and resist cracking, chipping and tearing through the use of a special long length carbon structure - Summer Tread Design - Offers tenacious grip and superior handling on wet or dry roads for driving enthusiasts. - Reinforced Sidewall - Support the weight of the vehicle and passenger even with a loss of air pressure with thicker sidewall, generally designed for RFT tires, made of special heat-resistant rubber - Spiral Wrap - Encircles the whole tire with a continuous nylon wrap , helping the tire hold its original shape to improve high speed capability. - Steel belt construction - Adds durability and resists punctures - Lateral Grooves - Efficient evacuation and channeling of water that helps reduce hydroplaning and improves wet traction - O-Bead - Improves uniformity and ride comfort through use of a single continuous strand of cable in the bead construction - CO-CS (Computer Optimized Component System) - Maximizes tire performance by optimizing the appropriate combination of tread design, casing shape, materials, and construction. - Asymmetrical tread pattern - Features large tread block elements on the outside shoulder features for dry performance, while the inner shoulder is comprised of a greater number of smaller tread elements to improve wet weather and snow traction without significantly sacrificing dry performance.
