Bridgestone Potenza S007 RFT
Bridgestone developed the Potenza S007 especially for high speed super sports vehicles, requiring extreme levels of lateral force due to their sporty setup. The innovative pattern features rigid pattern blocks for outstanding response and unleashed grip on dry surfaces. The wide outside tread in combination with specially tuned carcass construction provide maximum cornering grip, even under most severe load conditions.

Run Flat Technology
Run flat tyres for safer driving.
With regular tyres, a puncture generally means you lose steering control. It also puts you in added danger while changing the tyre on the roadside. With run flat tyres,* if your tyre gets punctured, there’s no sudden deflation – meaning you can continue driving safely.
This is because the tyre’s thicker sidewall is significantly reinforced and made from heat resistant rubber. It can safely carry the weight of your car for a short period, despite a total loss of air pressure.
Even at a moderately high speed and over a long distance – typically 80 km/h for up to 80 km – your vehicle will remain stable and you’ll stay in control. So, you should make it to the next service station without needing to change the tyre. Another advantage is that there’s no need to carry a spare tyre – meaning less weight and more storage space.
While this is an important advance in safety, Bridgestone’s commitment to continuous improvement has now produced the next generation in run flat tyres. With a thinner side wall plus two new heat suppressing technologies that limit tyre distortion – Nano Pro-Tech™ compound and cooling fins – the result is significantly better ride comfort and safety.
Carry on driving after a puncture
With a reinforced, thicker sidewall, Bridgestone RFTs can safely carry the weight of a car for a short period. Meaning no loss of driving control or subsequent roadside tyre changes.
Discover the next generation in RFTs
The reinforced sidewall is engineered using Bridgestone’s new Nano Pro-Tech™ compound. This revolutionary rubber compound optimises the distribution of carbon molecules to minimise the friction between them. This means significantly less heat is generated, helping the tyre to hold its shape, even with a new thinner sidewall.
Stay cool and in control
Bridgestone’s next generation RFTs feature another significant improvement. To suppress heat generation on the outside of the tyre, cooling fins have been added. They disrupt the airflow and direct cool air downwards onto the towards the tyre’s surface. Again, this means less heat and a tyre that holds its shape when it has lost all air pressure.
