    I bought this tire because it is Bridgestone and I knew that the tire will be PREMIUM. I am very happy, the tire is perfectly quiet, at a speed of 140km / h you can normally talk in the car. As for combustion, it seems to me that about 0.5l / 100km is less. And riding in the rain is just a fairy tale, the car sticks to it, like stuck to the road. The tires are of very good quality rubber, guarantee good grip, and do not make the suspension stiff. I recommend highly.

    To be honest I have acquired those tyres by accident, before I had Good Year Eagle F1. Both tyres stick on dry asphalt after warming but on the wet roads Bridgestone Potenza S001 has many more advantages. The tyre has a very strong, rigid sides. In turning the tyres hold very well and they’re easy to balance. In cold weather they act any normal tyre but in higher temperature they are way better. As for comfort, it is higher than GY F1. As for noise I do not pay attention to that during driving. The tyres are excellent whether the asphalt is dry or wet. When it comes to abrasion, I ride aggressively especially while taking corners, sometimes a drift happens but the tyre appears to be resistant to it. Overall I would recommend Bridgestone Potenza S001 for those who are looking for good traction and comfort during driving.

    I bought the tyre only a month ago. It was recommended to me by friend who has them. He praised it for strength and running and he was not mistaken. I do not regret that I listened to him. I drove the 3 thousand km, but I can say that it’s a very good tyre, holding to the road, taking the corners without any slip on them, car goes like clockwork. The tyre wear so far is because only 3 thousand. I drove quite aggressively. I really recommend Bridgestone Potenza S001. Someone who likes to ride definitely tougher will not be disappointed. I RECOMMEND!

    Very cool tires. I compare them to the Pirelli P Zero Nero in the same size. Generally they are very similar - that is very good. Bridgestone Potenza S001 are more predictable and give more warning signs. At the same rim Bridgestone tyres are clearly wider. Tyres allow a lot, both on dry and wet roads, except that they are always predictable. Potenza has less rolling resistance - parking maneuvers also noticeably easier, the wheel is not spinning too much.

    Tyres used in everyday driving middle-class premium car with a powerful diesel engine. Tyres act exactly as a premium class tyres should. Bridgestone Potenza S001 are fairly quiet, provide good contact and adhesion to the substrate. They have a wide margin of safety. Despite the large tyre size and their relatively low profile, they are not particularly susceptible to damage and provide decent comfort.

Product description

Bridgestone Potenza S001 245/40 R20 99 W XL, FR, BMW I8

Bridgestone Potenza S001 is a tyre of the highest class, which guarantees top-level performance. The asymmetric tread model has been precisely developed. Its design was inspired by the experience gained while working on RE050A model. The tyre is ideal for strong sporty cars.

Safety always comes first though. Bridgestone Potenza S001 maintains full grip on dry and wet surfaces, even when driving at higher speeds. An optimally designed system of cuts in the tread stiffens the tyre, increasing the contact area between the tread and the road. This design improves manoeuvring and cornering, facilitating dynamic driving. The grooves in the inner part of the tread quickly evacuate water outside of the tire to protect it against dangerous aquaplaning. On the other hand, solid blocks on the outer part help to maintain stability on dry roads.

Bridgestone Potenza S001 has a structure that reduces noise and vibration, ensuring high travelling comfort.. Its silica rubber compound not only improves grip on wet roads, but also protects the tyre against rapid wear and reduces fuel consumption (low rolling resistance).

Bridgestone Potenza S001 was chosen to be fitted as standard on many stylish cars, including the Ferrari F458 Italia, Porsche Panamera and Audi RS5.

Fuel efficiency (rolling distance)

Fuel efficiency is rated from A to G on a colour-coded scale. The highest fuel efficiency rating is A (green; the lowest rolling resistance), while the lowest fuel efficiency rating is G (red; the highest rolling resistance). Rolling resistance influences fuel consumption and vehicle emissions; the lower the resistance, the lower the fuel consumption and exhaust fume emissions.

Wet grip

Wet grip is the tyre's ability to adhere to the road surface in wet conditions. The EU rating focuses only on the wet braking performance of the tyre. Wet grip is rated from A to G, where A represents the best braking performance and G represents the worst. It is one of the most crucial safety parameters.


Tyres contribute to the amount of noise a vehicle generates. Choosing a tyre with a good noise rating will lower the impact of your driving on the surrounding environment.
