Recently, Bridgestone unveiled their third generation all-season, run-flat tire, the Potenza RE960AS Pole Position RFT. A set of Bridgestone Potenza tires in the RE960AS Pole Position RFT model are made specifically in sizes that fit the C6.
Many Corvette customers are concerned about ride quality, treadlife and the lack of all-season traction they get from their O.E. tires and have switched to non-run-flat and/or all-season tires.
However, Bridgestone has done a great job addressing these concerns by developing this third generation RFT. It's engineered to offer the same ride comfort as a conventional tire, while still giving you the peace of mind that comes with a run-flat tire. Having personally driven on these high performance tires myself, I can positively say Bridgestone has done a fantastic job improving the ride. Additionally, it features an all-season tread design, which gives owners another great reason to consider the Pole Position RFT as their next set of Corvette tires.
