Original equipment on many high-performance vehicles, the Potenza RE050 is built for the pleasure of driving. This tire comes loaded with race-proven technology: UNI-T for outstanding wet and dry traction, a tread pattern that promotes rapid water evacuation, variable dimensions in the tread blocks, and the smoother shape to reduce road noise. An asymmetrical pattern in the RE050A tread increases surface contact to enhance acceleration and cornering. Put this Potenza through its paces and discover what ultra-high performance really means.

Very fast tire wear and won't last too long less than 30000 km with just two summer use. Might be the BMW camber problem.. Too expensive as well

This tire is phenomenal !!!!! I run 225 45 17" on a modified 1995 BMW DINAN 3 with track suspension and plenty engine modifications. You get what you pay for so don't whine about wear..... This is a track tire disguised for the street. Great grip, great response and quick wear. These will NOT last more than the recommended service life. THEY ARE STICKY when heated, that's what they are. If you want an all around tire BUY SOMETHING ELSE. If you want performance that can be used on a race track.... these are for you. Some events do not allow rookies to use these on the track.....need I say more. If you have the money they are an excellent choice, but will wear quickly when driven aggressively.

Get ready to spend some money replacing these. Over and over and over. I purchased an aftermarket road hazard plan and it was the best money I've ever spent. Fortunately for me, mine manages to get a screw in them before the tire tread is gone. Which can't be repaired so they replace them at no cost. But as soon as my warranty is out I will be replacing them with something that will last longer than 15K miles.

Great for warm, dry weather. I have them on a Peugeot 207 RC (180hp) and it corners and breaks great with 175/45/17". Good enough for rainy weather. I considered larger tyres but the grip is just great. They have 35.000km and I estimate they will last at least till 50.000km with normal city usage and the ocasional sporty ride. They are horrible with negative temperatures, ice is a problem and for snow they are a source of panic. Very reduced grip and difficult control even at very low speeds. For a decent sport summer tyre I will for sure keep using my 050. But in the winter it's time for Bridgestone Blizzak.
