Bridgestone Rolls Out Next-Gen DriveGuard Plus Touring Tire
Bridgestone Americas Inc. has unveiled its new Bridgestone DriveGuard Plus premium touring tire, which targets popular sedans and CUVs and is available in both the United States and Canada.
"When we were designing the next generation of the Bridgestone DriveGuard tire, our goal was to produce a run-flat tire that significantly reduces the trade-offs that consumers may expect," says Mirelli Ciello, president, consumer replacement tire sales and marketing, Bridgestone.
"The DriveGuard Plus is an important step toward providing more drivers with extended mobility to help improve their journey."
The tire features Bridgestone run-flat technology that "ensures vehicles can continue up to 50 miles at up to 50 miles per hour after a puncture," according to Bridgestone officials.
It also contains 3D full-depth sipe technology for year-round performance, an asymmetric tread pattern and inboard rib design for optimal handling and a quiet ride and more.
