Bridgestone has presented a second-generation all-season tire Bridgestone Weather Control A005 Evo, which is coming to replace Weather Control A005, the touring model that was launched on the European market as recently as in 2018.
Due to an optimized carcass construction and optimized contact pressure distribution, the new tire is capable of handling everyday driving challenges across all four seasons without compromising on wear performance. Due to the use of the new NanoPro-tech mixing technology that improves its silica dispersion, the tire developers were able to give the A005 EVO excellent fuel efficiency and enhance its overall snow potential.
The Bridgestone Weather Control A005 EVO delivers a snow traction force that is 3% improved on its predecessor, a snow braking distance that is also 3% improved, and a slalom acceleration that is 4% improved. The tire also conforms to the applying tire standards, which is certified by the renowned 3 Peak Mountain Snowflake (3PMSF) marking on the sidewalls.
The Bridgestone Weather Control A005 EVO achieves the EU label A-grade in wet grip, the highest-ranking label, to ensure outstanding control in the wet. The tire also comes with an EU label B/C-grade in rolling resistance.
Developed and manufactured in Europe, the Bridgestone Weather Control A005 EVO will be available as of July 2020 in 94 sizes from 15"-21" to accommodate most passenger cars and SUVs. This includes eight popular sizes offered with Bridgestone’s DriveGuard Run-Flat Technology (RFT).
