Bridgestone Blizzak WS-70: A winter tyre for Nordic countries

New tyres Published the 25/10/2011 by Jack

The Bridgestone Blizzak WS70, the latest tyre in the Blizzak range, is designed for the winter roads of northern Europe. Using Bridgestone’s best technology (Tube Multicell compound, NanoPro Tech, 3D sipes, etc.), this tyre offers high level performances even in the toughest conditions. The proposed sizes cover the compact car and family saloon segment.

Bridgestone chose the Frankfurt Motor show to present the successor of the Blizzak Nordic, now winding down.

The Bridgestone Blizzak WS-70 has been specially developed for northern European countries, which experience harsh winters.  It reaches its full potential in extreme winter conditions (low temperatures, compact and frozen snow, ice, etc.) while providing, according to Bridgestone, a good level of safety on dry and wet road surfaces.

Required performances depending on the surfaces:
• Ice: Braking and traction
• Snow: Braking and traction
• Slush: traction
• Wet surfaces: Braking and traction

Here’s the proof in pictures with a test conducted by Bridgestone on the snow-covered roads of Vidsel, Sweden.
