FS: 18" Bridgestone Potenza RE050A RFTs Tires

BIMMERPOST / Classifieds
Asking Price:
None
Item Interest
I have a slightly used set of 18" Bridgestone Potenza RE050A RFTs Tires that came off of the 189s that I purchased over the summer. I just swapped them out so these are now available. This would be a great set of tires for someone that needs to return their leased vehicles but need tires that have decent tread on them, replace damaged RFTs or anyone who just needs to replace their tires because they are worn out and don't want to spend an arm and a leg on new RFTs.

Here are some marketing info from Bridgestone on these tires:

The Potenza RE050A RFT is a Max Performance Summer run-flat tire developed exclusively for specific BMW, Ferrari, Mazda and MINI vehicles. The Potenza RE050A RFT is designed to provide temporary extended mobility for a distance of 50 miles at up to 50 mph even after a puncture has allowed complete air pressure loss. The Potenza RE050A RFT was developed to provide good traction along with responsive and predictable dry and wet road handling. It is not intended to be driven in near-freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice.

The Potenza RE050A RFT features a high-grip tread compound molded into an asymmetric tread design. Stable outboard shoulder elements, intermediate tread blocks and a continuous center rib provide responsive handling, high-speed stability and traction on dry roads, while circumferential and lateral tread grooves pump water out from under the tire's footprint to minimize hydroplaning and aid wet traction. A continuous rib adjacent to the inboard shoulder promotes even wear and resists inside wear generated by suspensions that specify negative camber alignment settings. The tire's internal structure includes twin steel belts reinforced by spiral-wrapped nylon to stabilize the tread area and enhance handling, high-speed capability and ride quality.

The structure of the Potenza RE050A RFT also features Bridgestone Side Support Run-Flat technology reinforced sidewalls to support the vehicle after a puncture causes a loss of air pressure.


Here are some pics of the wheels and the tread depth. As you can see, these may be staggered but they all have 10/32 left of tread still...and that is the tread depth that they come in brand new!









Now for what you all have been waiting for...the price. I took a look at what TireRack sells these for brand new and it comes out to $1,368 for the staggered setup (shipping not included). I am willing to let these go for $800 shipped or $750 picked up in the Boston, MA area. I am not in a rush to sell these but figured someone could use these and again so if you can't afford the total $800 I would entertain reasonable offers plus possible items to add to straight up cash...these are basically brand new people.

Let me know if anyone is interested.

My understanding is that the previous owner had just purchased their car and it came with it so not completely sure on how many miles he had on them but he purchased CSL Replicas right afterwards. I only drove on them for 4 days total I think because when I purchased them, it was Spring time and I had my summers on already. I purchased them as my winter set but dumb me assumed that the RFTs were like my stock 17s that had all season RFTs and not summer RFTs like these 18s.

There should be very little miles on them because like I said, it's still got pretty much 10/32 left in the tread and the tires come new with 10/32. Honestly...it's a great deal.

Not at this time, but if I end up finding someone who needs fronts only then I will consider it.
