Bridgestone POTENZA S-02A
Bridgestone Summer tyre for Ultra High Performance cars.
The Potenza S-02 is a performance tyre designed for the Porsche 993, 996 and the Aston Martin DB7.The Bridgestone Potenza S-02A is an original equipment tyre choice for Ferrari's 360 Modena, which is the new model for the 21st century. Supplied in 215/45ZR18 (front) and 275/40ZR18 (rear) sizes, the Potenza S-02A has been selected for fitment on the mid-engined successor to the F355. The ultra high performance tyre incorporates a uni-directional tread pattern, giving enhanced wet performance and lower noise. Even contact pressure distribution is achieved through a new design concept for the crown area, while stiffer pattern blocks improve handling. An optimised slot angle adds to controllability, grip and durability
Key goals in the selection of wheels and tyres were to reduce aquaplaning and increase driving fun. Extensive testing demonstrated that the use of smaller front and larger rear tyres, respectively mounted on 7.5- and 10-inch rims, also gives considerable improvements in handling, grip and uniformity of wear.
