Tire Performances: UHP
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.

Features and Benefits
- O-Bead - Improves uniformity and ride comfort through use of a single continuous strand of cable in the bead construction - Block and Slick Combination - Improves traction and braking - Steel belt construction - Adds durability and resists punctures - Continuous Center Rib - Helps reduce noise while providing constant road contact to enhance straight-line stability. Enhance responsiveness, as well as wet and dry traction when accelerating or braking. - Circumferential Grooves And Special 3D Block - Help channel water out of the footprint area to improve resistance to hydroplaning - Spiral Wrap - Encircles the whole tire with a continuous nylon wrap , helping the tire hold its original shape to improve high speed capability. - 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. - Summer Tread Design - Offers tenacious grip and superior handling on wet or dry roads for driving enthusiasts. - 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 - Solid Circumferential Center Rib - Enhances response and straight line stability. - Large Stiff Outside Shoulder Blocks - Helps improve steering response - CO-CS (Computer Optimized Component System) - Maximizes tire performance by optimizing the appropriate combination of tread design, casing shape, materials, and construction.
