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.

Two summer seasons mostly on highway plus 6 lapping days. Total driven: ~16,000 km. The result: 1) extremely short lifespan - the thread is gone on all 4 tires, hate them for that; 2) both rears were flat (one last summer - fixed, one couple weeks ago - couldn't be fixed), could be just a lot of construction going on in Vancouver BC; 3) sticky tires dry and wet, beating any rear wheel car in the corners, love them for that; 4) noise: I don't care about that; if I wanted a nice 'noise' I would get a large sedan and listen to music while driving; 5) would not buy them again: a) because they are too heavy due to being a RFT, and b) because of short lifespan which combined with highest price makes them non desirable and c) there are other non RFT as good or better tires out there for the similar price.
