The Bridgestone Potenza S001 RFT is a high performance summer run flat tire made for passenger vehicles. The tire offers great summer weather traction and it grips the road well in dry and wet weather. The tread grooves resist hydroplaning by eliminating water from the tire footprint. In case of air pressure loss, the tire withstands the weight of the vehicle for 50 miles up to 50 mph. The steering responsiveness and handling were improved by the tread design, while and braking distance was also shortened with the tread. The Potenza S001 RFT provides a comfortable driving experience.
The tread pattern featuring the slanted-slug tread block sipes increases the summer weather traction.
