    I am disappointed. On dry Bridgestones Re050 are fantastic... unfortunately on wet road f.e in puddles they are a total disaster. The attriction is too high. after driving 14.000km there was 4mm of the tread left. These tyres are a total misunderstanding.

    They were perfect when they were new. I felt like driving in train. My car sticked to the road it didnt matter if it was a corner or straight road. Efficient behaviour on wet surface as well as in puddles. I was crossing 1.5 - 2.0 cm puddles without notice. At high speeds and corners full of water you will be able to turn on every single tracking system. Over 100mph very loud.You can notice the sound just while driving 25mph.The maximum speed that i drove was 136mph. It grips very well. No slipping in corners. No squeaking. And now the biggest disadvantage: after 21k mi they feathered.

    I admit that I dont know what to say about these tyres. They seem to grip well on dry road and they are not bad on wet road as well. On the other hand there are plenty of better alternatives for Bridgestone RE050. These tyres are loud and that fact can be annoying when driving on highway. If they are a bit used they dont behave well anymore. I put 2 new tyres on my front axle and on my rear axle I had them with 4mm tread - they lose grip very easily in tight corners.

  • C
  • 70 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.
