Default Bridgestone Re050/Re050A

Does any one know the difference between a 215/45/17 RE050 and a RE050A.

I think the std fit on my newage is the 050 but will an 050A be ok ???

Thanks for that I think they will fit too but can anyone confirm what the difference is between the 2 ??

They both have the same load rating BTW.

the 050 tyre is symetrical across the centre line of the tread pattern and hence has a direction of travel.

But the 050A is a a-symetric tyre which has a inside and a outside. and is no-directional.

Thanks for replies guys.

I have done some more investigation & as said RE050A's are asymmetric whilst the RE050's are directional.

The have the same load rating 87w as the std RE050 GZ fitted on my car from new in 215/45/17 unless you get the XL (xtra load) 91w ones. All the dimensions etc are the same also so I am sure they they will be fine on my car.
