    Opinion from outside the UK

    Looking for a solution between price and quality ... I really recommend it, I have already ridden POTENZA once and will definitely come back to them again ... If you are looking for sports road tyres for 250km and more, I really recommend ... Great traction, the car lowered on 225x40 and 255x35 tyres runs like on rails! Read more Collapse

    They are loud & hard. You feel every inch of the bumpy road. But they are grippy for the first 10,000 miles. Then get they get a bit slippy. I have them on my BMW 125D M Sport Read more Collapse

Scale of scores: Highest lowest

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.
