Questions and Answers for the Bridgestone Potenza S001

2016-03-29 - Is the SO01 a run flat tyre

The Bridgestone Potenza S001 is available in both runflat and non-runflat versions. The Bridgestone designation for runflat tyres is "RFT", so look out for this on a listing.


2017-03-07 - Good afternoon i have a ford fiesta st with bridgestone potenza 2054017 RE050A tires and i need to replace 2 of my tires, unfortunately all stores do not stock these tires anymore. Could i please find out which bridgestone tires to get as the ideal alternative to the RE050A

The Bridgestone Potenza S001 replaced the RE050A, so would be the logical tyre to fit.


2018-08-21 - I have the RE050s on my Alfa and they have been shockingly noisy since 10,000kms in. Will these do the same?

It depends on the cause of the wear. If the wear is due to poor alignment resulting in cupping or uneven wear on the tyres there's a chance any tyre will become noisy.

Volkswagen Golf 7 GTI PP DSG (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 6,000 average miles
Original equipment but in my view a poor choice. Some of the poorest wet weather performance I have experienced in 47 years of driving

What's better in the snow, a 4x4 or winter tyres? Watch the video to find out!
Given 84% while driving a Alfa Romeo Giulietta (225/40 R18 W) on a combination of roads for 29,000 spirited miles
Outstanding rigidity and dry grip. Very good wet grip and road feedback. The Durability of this tyre is marvelous as well.

Given 79% while driving a Volkswagen Golf GTI MK7 (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 11 spirited miles
Spin during 1st and 2nd gear but overall an okay tyre, wouldn't choose this tyre but it was on my MK7 Golf GTI as standard so kept them but now moving on Michelin Pilot Sport 4.
