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.

OEM on my 2011 Miata. A wonderful tire for this rear-wheel drive car. Dry weather performance in the mountains of Pennsylvania and curves and switchbacks in the western states is superb and astounding (Mountain View Road - near Manchester California and Naciamento-Ferguson highway California - please drive these roads!!). These tires are champs. Drove a very long hard rain in mountainous roads west of Tyrone Pennsylvania and I was totally surprised with the lack of skidding. Got 30,000 miles to the wear bars. Very happy. Colder (under 50F) the grip feels different. Snow...slip and slide...careful!!

It's down right awful in rain. Almost crashed with light rain due to lack of traction. In the rain, I can get wheel spin when the turbo kicks in in 4th gear. Have never driven in snow. (it's the Fiesta ST with a couple mods)
