It’s time for another TTAC Giveaway! This time, with winter fast approaching, it’s time to once again work with Bridgestone to provide a lucky winner with a set of winter rubber, just in time for the snow to fly.
In this case, the winner gets a set of WeatherPeak tires. These all-season tourings give a strong grip in the wet and dry and also offer a quiet and comfortable ride.
Yes, all-season tires and winter tires are usually different, but these all-seasons are meant to tackle winter weather, thanks in part to sipes that evolve as the tire wears out. An open shoulder slot design moves water out of the tire’s footprint. Full-depth 3D sipes offer “strong wear performance” and grip on snow-covered roads. The 3-Peak Mountain Snowflake-certified tires have ridges in the groove channel that compact snow and flow water away quickly. This improves traction and shortens stopping distances.
“The Bridgestone WeatherPeak tire leverages our latest technology innovations to push the all-season category to new heights,” said Ian McKenney, Senior Product Manager, Consumer Replacement Tire Sales and Marketing, Bridgestone Americas. “Drivers are increasingly looking for safe, yet practical tires that provide confident control for any season, weather or journey. The Bridgestone WeatherPeak tire provides a superior design to meet that demand and help drivers stay in control no matter the condition of the road.”
These tires stop 5 percent better than a top competitor, the Michelin CrossClimate 2, in the wet and 4 percent better in the dry, according to Bridgestone internal testing. These tires also stop 14 feet sooner in the snow than the Michelins and 30 feet sooner in the snow than Michelin Primacy Tour A/S all-seasons.
Bridgestone offers WeatherPeaks in 56 sizes that cover 87 percent of sedans, crossovers, and minivans on the market. Major models that can be fitted with these tires include the Audi Q5, BMW 3-Series, Honda Accord, Honda Odyssey, Jeep Cherokee, Toyota RAV4, and Volkswagen Golf.
The tires have a 70,000-mile limited warranty.
