Bridgestone introduces street legal track-spec Potenza RE-71RS tyre range

Bridgestone’s new Potenza RE-71RS tyre has gone on sale in Australia, positioned as an entry-level motorsport offering within Bridgestone’s high performance range. Stepping in for the previous RE-71R, the new RE71-RS fills the range between the high performance road-focussed RE003 and S007A, and the track-only RE-11S. According to Bridgestone, the RE-71RS delivers a five per cent increase in wear life over the tyre it replaces, while also boasting lower noise during road use.

Michelin wants to 3D print your new tyres

Michelin is working on technology that could see the end of 'new tyres' as we know them today, by instead using 3D printers to bring worn-out rubber back to life. The idea forms part of the company's holistic 'Visionary Concept' with several innovative technologies including an airless wheel/tyre package, tyres made of wood, and 3D printing.
