Bridgestone Potenza RE050A Pole Position RFT. FEATURES AND BENEFITS: Run flat tire Summer weather traction Hydroplaning resistance Longer lasting tread Comfortable driving experience High speed capability. OVERVIEW: The Bridgestone Potenza RE050A Pole Position RFT is a high performance summer tire manufactured for passenger vehicles.This tire is a run flat model, which was constructed with reinforced sidewalls. The strengthened sidewalls of the tire are capable to support the weight of the vehicle even after the loss of air pressure. These tires are manufactured for vehicles that have no space for a spare tire and, due to their heavier construction, they cannot be matched with regular tires. Run flat tires offer a temporary restricted movement after the loss of air pressure, which means that the tire can be driven on for 50 miles and up to the speed of 50 mph. This allows the driver to safely arrive at their destination to change or repair the damaged tire.The tire has great summer traction and it grips the road well in dry and wet road conditions. The tire is not recommended to be used in winter conditions, as the compound loses its great traction in the colder weather. The asymmetrical tread pattern helps evacuate water from beneath the footprint for a better grip in wet weather conditions, while also resisting dangerous hydroplaning situations.The L. L. Carbon used in the manufacture of this tire extends the treads life, as it strengthens the compounds structure, resists damage and provides even wear. On the molecular level the L. L. Carbon, or Long Link Carbon, creates a long chain along the tread which distributes the driving pressure equally across it. The spread out driving force makes sure that the tires tread wear is even throughout the tread surface. The stronger compound also slows down the tread wear rate, making sure the tire lasts longer, and it makes the tire resistant to damages, such as punctures, cracking, chipping or tearing.The tires high speed performance is guaranteed by the O-Bead structure. The tires bead construction contains a single continuous strand of cable that helps maintain the tires shape. As the tire does not deform under the high speed driving pressure, its full high speed potential is brought forward. The O-Bead design also provides extra comfort as it reduces the road vibrations felt by the passengers. The tread pattern further enhances the tires high speed capability. The center circumferential rib in the design enhanced the tires steering capability and precision, making its handling effortless.The Potenza RE050A Pole Position RFT offers a quiet and comfortable driving experience. The continuous center rib in the asymmetrical tread pattern reduces the road noise heard in the cabin of the vehicle by channeling the soundwaves through the tires footprint. This specific tire is marked with OE as it is the original equipment of vehicles. Below is a list of some popular vehicles that 275/35R18 tires may fit depending on Year & Option. However the list does not cover all vehicle's that these tires can fit: Chevrolet Corvette 427 Limited Edition Z06 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Carbon Dodge Viper ACR Dodge Viper GTS Dodge Viper R/T-10 Dodge Viper SRT-10
