High grip shoulder blocks - produce outstanding grip through corners.
Longitudinal stiffness generates the high braking force required.
Off-center straight rib - a very good steering response and precision for an exciting sporty feel.
High angle lug grooves - aid to improve drainage of excess water from the rib area into the main grooves for hydroplaning resistance.
Wide groove design - provides rapid water evacuation.

- September 11th, 2016I replaced the RE050A that came on my BMW with the S001. I am glad I did it, because the S001 is leaps and bounds ahead of the RE050As performance. It is quieter although it does like to squeal the moment it starts losing any traction. They have a stiff and strong sidewall, which helps in providing feedback and makes it feel like a sportier and more responsive tyre. I havenât done enough mileage on the S001s yet to determine how quickly itâs chewing up the tread. Definitely a worthwhile upgrade from the RE050A.
