April 20, 2005

Bridgestone Corp. has announced it has begun supplying Potenza RE050 tires for factory installation as standard equipment on the Ferrari F430. They are Potenza RE050 tires in size 225/35ZR19 84Y for the front wheels and 285/35ZR19 99Y for the rear wheels.

The 430, an ultra-high performance model powered with a 4.3-liter eight-cylinder engine, is the successor to Ferrari’s 360 Modena.

The Potenza RE050 tires have an asymmetrical, nondirectional tread pattern and offer dry- and wet-weather performance along with a quiet, comfortable ride for touring.

Bridgestone supplies similar Potenza RE050 to Enzo Ferrari, Superamerica and 612 Scaglietti.
