These are great tyres the Bridgestone Blizzak winter tyres
Why not consider Bridgestone blizzak winter tyres
I must admit that out of all the leading makes of tyres that are developed for winter use, then Bridgestone are not amongst them. I am not sure why this is, because Bridgestone are by sales volume, the largest tyre company in the world. However, we do not see that, in the volume of their Bridgestone Blizzak tyre sales, at least not here in Yorkshire UK.
Ever since I became a manager for one of the large tyre retailers here in the UK, I have made an effort to inform my customers about the safety features of this product. I really mean that from the bottom of my heart, it is not just to sell them something , but to me it is the safety issues. When a customer comes in to buy summers in say November, then I will make a huge effort to try selling the customer onto winters .
I will try to convince them to fit their winters for the whole winter period. Most drivers still do not know that when the temperature drops to below 7*C, that the tyres rubber will become harder and much less flexible, than the winter tyres, primarily because modern winter season tyres have special chemicals added to the compound, including “silica”.
Less flexible side walls make the summer ones much stiffer and this makes your car harder to handle in cold weather steering and cornering, as well as braking can become very difficult. Winters retain their flexibility in the cold climate and also give the driver more confidence, when they realise that the car handles much better in the snow and ice.
Bridgestone Blizzak winter tyres come into this bracket.
Bridgestone Blizzak will perform in all the bad weather that is thrown at you. They are specially engineered with deeper tread depth and a unique tread pattern to cope with the snow and ice. When Bridgestone blizzac winter, come across any snow, slush and ice, they have a Multi-Cell compound that removes a thin layer water from the treads surface which improves the grip using millions of microscopic pores.
This special compound also allows the tyre to stay flexible in icy and freezing temperatures, making sure that the car sticks to the road. Also there are a large number of sipes in the Bridgestone Blizzak tread which is also another property of the tyre to retain the grip in winter conditions. of our snow tyres improves traction in the wet, snow, and ice by increasing the number of biting edges.
This is the time of year, just before winter bites to think about a new set of winters for your car. One of the tyre products that comes highly recommended is the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70. I must admit that it was not familiar with me until I have read some good revues about the winters in some of the press and skiing blogs.
The manufacturer, claim that new technology has gone into their compound, that includes silica and an enhanced system of microscopic tubes and cells that are covering the normal tread compound which helps the tyre to grip better, even when the tyre wears down . These so called “Nano-tubes”, help the tyre grip into the ice and snow, making this tyre very efficient in all kinds of winter driving conditions.
Bridgestone Blizzac sales increase here in the UK.
I am pleased to say that the Bridgestone Blizzak has become very popular in the UK this winter and we at Pellon tyres have experienced an increase in the new tyres sales. Bridge-stone are the World leader and we at Pellon are very proud to be a stockists in Halifax the UK.
For a further review…
“The Bridgestone Blizzak line of winter tires has a long-established and well-deserved reputation for reliability and grip in all winter conditions, and the WS70 is no exception. The successor to the highly regarded Bridgestone Blizzak WS60, the WS70 is clearly an improvement. Although opinions vary somewhat as to its exact placement, the Blizzac WS70 definitely earns a place among the top tier of tires, although the dry-road performance does leave something to be desired”… http://tires.about.com/od/Tire_Reviews/fr/Review-Bridgestone-Blizzak-Ws-70.htm
