The inner tread is designed to facilitate water evacuation and reduce aquaplaning.  Its asymmetric tread design and innovative construction offer interesting handling and performances on dry and wet surfaces.

The Potenza S001 is standard on the Aston Martin Rapide, the RS5 and the Ferrari 458 Italia, it is also available on the European market since January 2010.

The Potenza S001 is available in 19 sizes, for rim diameters between 18 and 20 inches.
