I Don’t Think You’re Ready for This Tread: Bridgestone’s New Release is A/S and UHP

How often do we get to witness the flawless union of Ultra High-Performance tires and unparalleled all-season capability? The answer is not often, since finding tires that expertly merge these two qualities are few and far between. Not since this past April were there many noteworthy candidates in this category.

Just before we entered the month of May, Bridgestone unveiled their latest product – a tire model that swept us off our feet and immediately made us envision how a new, gleaming set of 4 would look parked in our own driveways. Just see for yourself.

While these tires may sit pretty, the Potenza RE980AS tires are meant for much more than show. Ultra-High-Performance, all-season capability, and superior handling through wet and dry conditions are just a few of the incredible performance attributes this tire has to offer. But what makes it so different from others on the market?

The Tread Secret

Bridgestone’s trade secret is all in the tread. The key to its Potenza Tire’s unmatched driving performance is the uniquely redesigned tread featuring more grip, better overall wet and dry braking, and smoother handling. The tread design is asymmetric, complete with 3D full depth sipes and new compounds to increase the rubber’s flexibility in cold temps.

Another unique feature is how they fare in wet and snowy conditions. The tread design allows the tire to expel water on contact and grip tightly to snow-covered roads, which greatly reduces the risk of hydroplaning.

Made with You in Mind

Not meant for the faint of heart, these tires were designed with YOU in mind. Lovers of speed, high performance, accuracy, and a little bit of luxury will be the first to snag a set of Bridgestone’s latest masterpiece.

Turning around tight corners and winding roads will be a new experience with a set of Potenza RE980AS tires. Not to mention, it is a quiet and comfortable ride, despite its reputation for sportiness.

Numbers Don’t Lie

Here’s a quick snapshot of what you’ll get when you purchase a set of Potenza RE980AS tires:

  • 50% more grip in snow conditions
  • 25% longer tread life than previous models
  • 50,000-mile limited treadwear warranty
  • 35 sizes available ranging from 16-20”
  • 18 additional sizes coming soon!

Engineered for quality, all season durability, and expert handling, the Potenza RE980AS is clearly a cut above the rest when it comes to ultra high performance tires. These wheels are in a class all their own and a driving force to be reckoned with.
