5.) Bridgestone Potenza RE050A
Developed through Bridgestone’s partnership with Formula One, the Potenza RE050A is the most luxurious tire in the Potenza range. A true summer tire, the Bridgestone Potenza RE050A’s perform decently at the track and great on the road but you will need to change over to winter tires when temperatures get close to freezing.
These tires are great for beginners due to their habit of making up for many imprecise driver mistakes. This is due to their soft nature and their ability to handle wet conditions incredibly well. Bridgestone designed the Potenza RE050A’s tread pattern with a tread pattern that effectively removes water from the tire’s contact patch, therefore, reducing the risk of aquaplaning.
These threads come stock on some BMWs and Benzes so it makes sense that they have been engineered for a broad spectrum of drivers. The Potenza’s will last around 50k miles, and if you are switching them out during the winter months, depending on how much you drive and how hard you drive, that’s quite a bit of road time.
