    Tires exercise is great only downside is the noise, but it is not bothersome for me personally so do not judge this somehow negatively. When it comes to handling this judge them for 6 due to the fact that the tire in my case is hard (ROS) goes so very well in the corners. As for braking on wet and dry conditions also excel really well. Personally, I recommend these tires to people who appreciate good driveability more than comfortable luxury travel. The tire is tough and so it should be. I am with my hand, I can say that I bought the second set, and probably buy 3 and 4, etc..

    The Bridgestone Potenza RE050A1 is a tyre close to perfect. On dry surface I didn't notice practically any work of ABS systems. It grips perfectly when starting. What's more, it's quiet in every speed range. If greatly absorbs small bumps and cracks in the pavement. It also gives great grip on wet surface. Longitudinal aquaplaning is something this tyre doesn't know, and even if it goes into a slide, it does it in a smooth way, giving you the time to react. Overall, Bridgestone Potenza RE050A1 is a tyre I can definitely recommend.

    Bridgestone Potenza RE050A1 are very good tyres great handling on dry pavement (also on motorways, at speeds above 130 MPH) and quite good on wet. Very good grip in the corners. Virtually no rolling resistance. Tread wear is on an acceptable level (the car is quite powerful, and the tyres are insrtalled on the rear axle). Their hardness is such as in RunFlats - I'm not complaining. I find Bridgestone Potenza RE050A1 much better than the ones I had before, and I had Pirelli tyres.

  • E
  • 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.
