The Bridgestone Summer Range 2020 Augmented with Two Potenza Models

In February 2020, Bridgestone Tire launches two new developments meant to be operated in the summer weather conditions: Bridgestone Potenza Adrenalin RE004 will be available in 40 sizes with a fitting diameter from 14 to 20 inches, while the range of Bridgestone Potenza RE-71RS will include 63 sizes with fitting diameters from 13 to 19 inches.

The Potenza sports tire line, which appeared as far back as in 1979, instantaneously got recognized in the world of high-performance cars. Remarkable is the fact that today it still scores impressive results in the world of motor racing.

The new Bridgestone Potenza Adrenalin RE004 model is characterized not only by stable handling response on dry pavement, inherent to all Potenza tires, but also by great stability in the wet, coupled with high hydroplaning resistance.

In addition, thanks to the use of the improved tread compound, the new tire RE004 has a reduced rolling resistance, which increases its fuel-saving properties as compared to its predecessor, Potenza Adrenalin RE003.

Designed to be chiefly used on race tracks, the UHP tire Bridgestone Potenza RE-71RS can also be legally operated on public highways; at the same time, the tire maker positions it as the fastest tire in history.

Potenza RE-71RS is coming to replace Potenza RE-71R in the company’s model range; compared to its predecessor, the new model got a few improvements for more confident dry handling. The designers also improved the tire’s resistance to wear, which increased its treadlife by 5%.
