Grand Touring All-Season
The Potenza RE97AS is Bridgestone's Grand Touring All-Season tyre developed for the drivers of luxury coupes, touring sedans and sporty crossover vehicles looking for a bit more performance from their all-season touring tyres. Designed to provide a blend of both tyre categories, the Potenza RE97AS combines touring tyre fundamentals with the enhanced steering feel of performance tyres, as well as all-season traction, even in occasional light snow.
Potenza RE97AS tyres feature a high-grip, high-silica content compound molded into a symmetric tread design to blend long wear with all-season traction. The footprint is optimized to promote even contact pressure to enhance wear and traction while stiffened shoulder blocks backed by a continuous rib enhance steering response and cornering capability. Independent intermediate and center ribs are separated by circumferential grooves to improve water flow through the footprint to help resist hydroplaning while lateral grooves, notches and sipes create biting edges that increase traction in light snow.
The tyre's internal structure includes twin steel belts reinforced by spirally wrapped nylon to enhance durability while reducing tyre weight and rolling resistance.
