As the new performance benchmark from Bridgestone, Potenza S007A brings better responsiveness, new levels of stability for everyday driving as well as high speed applications, heightened grip and cornering ability, improved braking capabilities and significantly improved wear life compared to previous generation products.
Engineered to last
S007A is a performance tyre engineered to last. With three-dimensional M shaped sipes reinforcing tread block stiffness, three wide ribs and an optimised crown shape, S007A maintains uniform contact and pressure with the road to maximise the life of the tyre.
Improved braking performance in the wet
With its rounded tread blocks, S007A allows higher contact pressure in order to handle the forces of braking to give enhanced levels of grip, particularly in the wet. Chamfering of the blocks also prevents deformation of the tyre under load by providing a flatter contact area.
Enhanced handling capabilities
The central rib of the S007A has been stiffened for greater stability and increased responsiveness in all conditions. Low angled sipes on the tread face offer heightened control for cornering, while the S007A’s sidewall features a Kevlar flipper* to increase rigidity and prevent excessive movement for exceptional high‑speed grip.
195 indicates the section width of a tyre in millimetres.
65 is a tyre’s aspect ratio which is its height from the base of the tread to the rim. This number represents a percentage of the tread width. For example, the height of this tyre is 65% of its width. Low profile tyres have smaller aspect ratio percentages.
R means that the tyre has radial ply construction, meaning the way in which it has been constructed. Most passenger tyres are constructed this way so you will rarely find a car tyre without an R.
15 indicates the diameter of the wheel rim. So if you are buying wheels for existing tyres, this is the size in inches you will require.
Load & Speed
91 V is a symbol that indicates the maximum load capacity and speed at which a tyre can be safely operated, subject to the tyre being in sound condition, correctly fitted and with the recommended inflation pressure.

Bridgestone Run-Flat Technology (RFT)
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. Tyres with Run Flat Technology should only be fitted to vehicles that are equipped with a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS).
