The Bridgestone Potenza RE980AS is a high performance, all season tire manufactured for passenger vehicles and SUVs. Bridgestone offers a 50,000 mile treadwear warranty with this model.
The tire guarantees a first-rate all weather performance. The asymmetric tread pattern with the full 3D siping pattern and the all season tire compound improve the dry, wet and winter weather road gripping ability. The tread elements increase the grip the tire has on the road surface throughout the year, especially as the 3D full depth siping detail provides additional biting edges. The compound keeps its traction and flexibility in different weather conditions, to ensure the tire’s performing capability. The circumferential grooves prevent hydroplaning by dispersing water and slush from below the tire’s footprint. As a result, the tire upgrades the year round performing ability.
The model’s controllability is ensured all year. The asymmetric tread’s continuous ribs keep the tire’s contact with the road surface throughout its performance, which significantly improves the steering responsiveness and precision and stabilized optimal structure. The wider shoulder tread block placement helps boost the cornering capability. They upgrade the cornering and maneuvering power by heightening the number of biting edges gripping the road surface. The 3D full depth siping detail boosts the braking ability. They manage to create friction between the tire and the road surface at the moment of braking, which greatly shortens the braking distance and promotes a secure high speed performance.
The Potenza RE980AS offers an extended tread life. The durable tire compound and the full 3D siping detail increase the length of the tire’s usability. The compound is wear-resistant which decreases the tread wear rate during the tire’s performance. The tread design with the 3D siping pattern maintains the tire’s optimal road contact, enabling the tire to evenly distribute the driving pressure along the tread area. The equal circulation of the driving forces avoids irregular tread wear formations, which upgrades the length of the tread life.
