Bridgestone Potenza S-02 A is a high performance summer tire designed for sports cars. It has Bridgestone's UNI-T (Ultimate Network if Intelligent Tire Technology) that utilizes design, construction and tread compound features for an enhanced tire performance. Its high-grip tread compound molded into a directional tread design with stable shoulders notched intermediate ribs and continuous center provides responsive dry-road handling, high-speed stability and traction. Its lateral tread help pump water from under the tire's footprint into circumferential grooves to resist hydroplaning and improve wet traction. Its internal structures with twin steel belts supported by a spirally wrapped cap ply and belt edge strips minimizes weight while stabilizing the tread area and enhancing handling and high-speed capability. Moreover, its polyester or rayon cord body has a wire-reinforced hard rubber sidewall filler to help achieve ride quality with handling stability.
