Bridgestone Blizzak WS70 205/55 R16 Review

For driver of passenger cars, it is very important to be equipped with a high performing winter tire so as to avoid road difficulties. With a speed index of 118 mph, maximum load of 1356 lbs, and weight of 22 lbs., it is perfect for most passenger vehicles.

 

Like other winter tires of Bridgestone, the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70 205/55 R16 was able to meet the service requirements for severe snow conditions set by the Rubber Manufacturers Association and Rubber Association of Canada. The mountain and snowflake symbol gives consumers the assurance of superior reliability and safety under the most difficult road conditions due to sudden change to cold weather. Like other winter tires from the same brand, the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70 205/55 R16’s internal structure was built with utmost care and heavy consideration. The compounds are evenly distributed and layered correctly. The correct formation of compounds and other microscopic units make way for a good contact between the tire and surface covered with thick snow. Consequently, there is a perfect traction using this tire.

 

Various internal features are carefully connected to each other to improve dry road performance, while keeping the traction stable and fully functional. Water dispersal mechanism is well constructed to enhance hydroplaning resistance and improve braking force. Furthermore, for increased level of durability, the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70 205/55 R16 maximizes Bridgestone's unique UNI-T Technology along with a pair of steel belts. To aid the driver during icy road conditions and prevent possible road problems, the tires have a warning feature regarding wearing out. This is also because the key flaw of this tire is that it wears out quite faster than its competitors; hence it becomes pricier to most drivers.

 

Like other winter tires, it is best to use the Blizzak WS70 205/55 R16 only in sets of four. Mixing them with other types may cause irregularities due to differences in design and construction. This could mean risk as well. This tire set has an excellent grip on icy road, making it one of the best choices in the market. However, its soft rubber compound makes it a little loose on the road, and easier to wear out. It becomes saddening therefore when it starts to look a lot like the regular tire one uses during summer. For its price, the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70 205/55 R16 is good value for money. It has almost the same features as any winter tire from Bridgestone, and with no exceptional features, but it follows the brand’s image of well trusted tires for severe road conditions.

  • The Good :
    Excellent Snow Performance, Extraordinary Grip On Ice, Good Wet Road Handling
  • The Bad :
    Very Loose Dry-road Performance, High Treadwear, ‘Squishy’ Handling
Our score:
4 / 5
