Bridgestone developed the Potenza S007 especially for high speed super sports vehicles, requiring extreme levels of lateral force due to their sporty setup. The innovative pattern features rigid pattern blocks for outstanding response and unleashed grip on dry surfaces. The wide outside tread in combination with specially tuned carcass construction provide maximum cornering grip, even under most severe load conditions.

Run Flat Technology
Run flat tyres for safer driving.
With regular tyres, a puncture generally means you lose steering control. It also puts you in added danger while changing the tyre on the roadside. With run flat tyres,* if your tyre gets punctured, there’s no sudden deflation – meaning you can continue driving safely.
This is because the tyre’s thicker sidewall is significantly reinforced and made from heat resistant rubber. It can safely carry the weight of your car for a short period, despite a total loss of air pressure.
Even at a moderately high speed and over a long distance – typically 80 km/h for up to 80 km – your vehicle will remain stable and you’ll stay in control. So, you should make it to the next service station without needing to change the tyre. Another advantage is that there’s no need to carry a spare tyre – meaning less weight and more storage space.
While this is an important advance in safety, Bridgestone’s commitment to continuous improvement has now produced the next generation in run flat tyres. With a thinner side wall plus two new heat suppressing technologies that limit tyre distortion – Nano Pro-Tech™ compound and cooling fins – the result is significantly better ride comfort and safety.
Carry on driving after a puncture
With a reinforced, thicker sidewall, Bridgestone RFTs can safely carry the weight of a car for a short period. Meaning no loss of driving control or subsequent roadside tyre changes.
Discover the next generation in RFTs
The reinforced sidewall is engineered using Bridgestone’s new Nano Pro-Tech™ compound. This revolutionary rubber compound optimises the distribution of carbon molecules to minimise the friction between them. This means significantly less heat is generated, helping the tyre to hold its shape, even with a new thinner sidewall.
Stay cool and in control
Bridgestone’s next generation RFTs feature another significant improvement. To suppress heat generation on the outside of the tyre, cooling fins have been added. They disrupt the airflow and direct cool air downwards onto the towards the tyre’s surface. Again, this means less heat and a tyre that holds its shape when it has lost all air pressure.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm. This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow. Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.

11.07.2020 from Pat Much better in the wet than Dunlop tyres that were on the car.
24.03.2020 from Smiffy OEM tyre for car. Provide amazing grip in a 4 wheel drive lightweight sports car. Cornering at speed is amazing, braking too.
30.11.2019 from Mr Brew Having tried various makes & sizes since buying the car from new,which came with Bridgestones. I changed back to bridgestones and realised what a great tyre i had missed using. Quite,great grip in the wet,which was one fault the tyre had when you pulled away from stationary.You had to be easy on the throttle in the wet with the power this gives out, now it is more controllable, love them.
19.05.2019 from Patrick Mckenna Very reliable and comfortable driving experience
