Bridgestone Potenza RE050A Scuderia was developed to provide excellent traction along with responsive and predictable handling on dry and wet roads. It is not intended to be driven in near-freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice. The Potenza RE050A Scuderia features a high-grip tread compound molded into an asymmetric tread design. Stable outboard shoulder elements, intermediate tread blocks and a continuous center rib provide responsive handling, high-speed stability and traction on dry roads, while circumferential and lateral tread grooves pump water out from under the tire's footprint to minimize hydroplaning and aid wet traction. A continuous rib adjacent to the inboard shoulder blocks promotes even wear and resists inside wear generated by suspensions that specify negative camber alignment settings. The tire's internal structure includes twin steel belts reinforced by spiral-wrapped nylon to stabilize the tread area and enhance handling as well as high-speed capability.
