    Tire in time matched to the car. No defects not discovered, but I have no comparison with others in the car.

    End of discussion which tyres to choose for cars with multi-wishbone suspension, where the rumbles by slight usage can occur. It’s the best tyre in the world. It’s the opposite of summer Michelline tyre. The Michellines are built to win the tests. They are quiet, the resistance of trundling is small, the car consumes less fuel, but the Michellin is a tyre for grandpas – after driving 9400 miles it’s not possible to drive on wet surface with Michellin Primacy! On the other hand, BRIDGESTONE is awesome! Even after driving almost 19 000 miles the tyre is good during the rainfall, even though the usage is visible. The car consumes 0,5l more fuel, accelerates worse, max speed is also worse, but safety, but holding in the turns and during the rainfalls – great! Besides, it fits to every car. You can mount these tyres to Porsche, best BMW’s and Subaru in stock, so the 050A has got quite a recommendation! It’s funny for me, how the opinions on this portal differentiate. To everyone – it depends on how you drive! You can wear out the tyres in two days driving aggressively on the tour in a car with a power over 500 HP and also you can drive for 3 seasons 15 000 miles each.

Product description

Bridgestone Potenza RE050A 205/45 R17 88 W XL, FR

Bridgestone RE050A is summer-season tyre which has been optimized for regular passenger cars. The responsiveness and handling on dry roads is superb, and so is the grip and traction on wet roads too. In wet conditions, circumferential grooves quickly remove excess water, so the tyre has better tread-to-road contact and this reduces aquaplaning risks. A strong modern-day mix is used, and this repels mechanical damage, whilst also reducing rolling resistance, and carbon emissions and boosting fuel-efficiency.

Benefits of the Bridgestone RE050A:

  • Fuel-efficiency.

  • Reduces aquaplaning.

  • Excellent traction.





This tyre is produced by Bridgestone, which are one of the biggest tyre manufacturers in the world.

Label

The Bridgestone Potenza RE050A tyre in size 205/45 R17 88 W, according to the manufacturer's information, has the following drivability qualities:

  • F
  • B
  • 72 dB
F B 72 dB

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.

Noise

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.
