New Bridgestone Potenza RE-11

Bridgestone Potenza RE-11 Performance Tire

Bridgestone Potenza RE-11 Performance Tire

The newly announced Bridgestone Potenza RE-11 performance tire is the latest in a series of innovative street/track hybrid radials released by major tire manufacturers. The new Potenza model features “stealth” block technology originally developed for Formula One rain tires. The blocks are specially engineered to improve water evacuation and handling on wet surfaces. The tire also features special grooves cut around the circumference of the tire which help drivers avoid hydroplaning in poor weather.

The Bridgestone Potenza RE-11 is aimed at sports cars such as the Nissan 350Z and BMW 3-series, though it will come in 31 different sizes. For more information on available sizing, check with your local tire distributor.

“The RE-11 offers consumers a product that will perform well both on the street and on the track,” says Phil Pacsi, vice president, consumer marketing, U.S. and Canada Consumer Tire Sales Division, BATO.
