Bridgestone WeatherPeak Joins All-Weather Category

June 14, 2022

The Bridgestone WeatherPeak is the first all-weather, touring tire in the brand's lineup. Bridgestone Americas Inc. says it is available in 56 sizes.

Bridgestone says internal testing shows the Bridgestone WeatherPeak offers better acceleration and grip than a competing tire in both wet and dry conditions.

“The Bridgestone WeatherPeak tire leverages our latest technology innovations to push the all-season category to new heights,” says  Ian McKenney, senior product manager in consumer replacement tire sales and marketing for 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.”

The tire is backed by a 70,000-mile limited warranty. Its siping is designed to evolve as the tire wears, and the open shoulder slot design helps evacuate water from the tire's footprint in wet conditions. Plus, full depth 3D sipes provide grip and performance in snow.

The tire is 3-Peak Mountain Snowflake certified, and the ridges within the groove channel compact snow and help water flow for improved winter traction and braking in winter conditions.

Bridgestone says its internal testing also shows the WeatherPeak better wet and dry acceleration than a top competitor, and shorter stopping distances in snow than an all-weather competitor.

The tire's 56 sizes fit 87% of the sedans, minivans and crossovers on the road today, Bridgestone says, including key replacement fitments on the Audi Q5, BMW 3 Series, Honda Accord, Honda Odyssey, Jeep Cherokee, Toyota RAV4 and Volkswagen Golf.
