Potenza RE050A RFT

Original equipment on many high-performance vehicles, the Potenza RE050A RFT is built for the pleasure of driving. This tire comes loaded with race-proven technology: a tread pattern that promotes rapid water evacuation, variable dimensions in the tread blocks, and a smoother shape to reduce road noise. An asymmetrical tread pattern in the RE050A RFT tread increases surface contact to enhance acceleration and cornering. Run-Flat technology allows the Potenza RE050A RFT to continue to operate safely at a speed of up to 50 mph for a distance of up to 50 miles under normal driving conditions with zero inflation pressure. Put this Potenza through its paces and discover what ultra-high performance really means.
