Bridgestone Introduces Potenza Sport AS Tire

The Potenza Sport AS is the company’s first ultra-high performance all-season tire to feature Bridgestone Enliten technology.

Bridgestone Americas (Bridgestone) announced the expansion of its Potenza line-up with the new Bridgestone Potenza Sport AS tire. Bridgestone said this latest ultra-high performance all-season product includes confident handling and responsive grip, paired with wet performance and improved winter capabilities to provide a sporty driving experience in all weather. The Potenza Sport AS is the company’s first ultra-high performance all-season tire to feature Bridgestone Enliten technology, engineered to help optimize all-season performance and provide longer wear life, the company said.

The Potenza Sport AS is also the first ultra-high performance tire to incorporate PeakLife, a polymer technology that enhances tread resistance to wear, aiding in extended tire life, Bridgestone said. Both the new compound and polymer were developed by Bridgestone engineers and scientists at the company’s Americas Technology Center in Akron, Ohio. The Bridgestone Potenza Sport AS tire is offered in a Y-speed rating on select models, marking the first time its Americas Technology Center developed Y-speed ratings for consumer replacement tires.
