Congratulations to Bridgestone tyres for bagging ‘very recommendable’ ratings for its ultra-high performance Potenza S001 in two influential German motoring magazines.
It received the accolade for the second consecutive year in Autozeitung magazine’s annual tyres test which inspected 14 leading summer tyre brands on an Audi A3 Sportsback in size 225/45 R17 Y.
Autozeitung concluded that Potenza S001 is “very recommendable”. It commented: “The sportiest tyre in this test is the Bridgestone; it shows a very high level of grip and is very agile and stable.”
The tyre was given a second stamp of high approval by Auto Motor Sport magazine which tested a 225/45 R17 Y on a VW Golf GTD.
It evaluated 11 leading tyre brands on the full range of wet and dry criteria and concluded that the
Potenza S001 is “very recommendable.
Auto Motor Sport observed: “Very good driving and braking performance on dry; good driving performance on wet […] . The Bridgestone Potenza shines due to excellent braking and driving behaviour on dry; and also on wet it scores a lot of points due to its easy control up to the limit.”
Bridgestone developed the Potenza S001 for the world’s most powerful sports cars.
The asymmetric design features stiff ‘high grip’ shoulder blocks, enhanced by a lightweight active insert in the bead area, delivering quick-fire response and remarkable precision.
The inner pattern area is tuned for safety with Bridgestone’s premium wet technology, while the lighter belt construction and lower rolling resistance than previous Potenza generations boost fuel efficiency.
