Used Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R Tires


If it looks like a track tire with grooves, it may be a Potenza RE-71R. That R is for "racing," which this tire can do when it’s not on the street, where it’s DOT legal. This is an extreme performance summer tire. Tires in this line are rated for speeds to 149 (15- and 16-inch sizes) or 168 miles per hour (17-, 18- and 19-inch sizes). Their biggest appeal may be their handling and cornering power, a reason they spend a lot of time on the track. Dry grip is superb, and the grooves help to maintain wet grip. This tire should never be driven in near-freezing temperatures, in snow, or on ice, and it may be challenged by heavy rain.

The directional tread has three ribs — a central rib and two extra-wide shoulders. The central rib is straight and solid for advanced response and handling. It is flanked by two straight, wide circumferential rain channels, which help to discourage hydroplaning. The shoulders have notches that form a "V" pattern. The biggest of the notches extend to the outer edges of the shoulders, where they direct some water from the contact patch. The vast amount of rubber placed on the road — or track — by this tread is what gives the line its advanced cornering power and straight-line stability at speed.
