Bridgestone begins supplying Potenza RE050 for Ferrari F430
Tokyo, Japan – Bridgestone Corporation has announced that it has begun supplying Potenza RE050 tires for factory installation as standard equipment on the new Ferrari F430, the successor to the company’s 360 Modena.
The 19-inch tires feature an asymmetrical, non-directional tread pattern. The inner portion of the tread has been optimized for wet-weather driving, especially important in Europe, and the outer portion for dry surfaces. Bridgestone supplies similar Potenza tires for the Enzo Ferrari, Superamerica and 612 Scaglietti.
