Bridgestone Weather Control A005

Another product of Bridgestone’s extensive driver-consultation process, the A005 has a modern look to its results. While conventional all-season tyres vary little from their winter siblings, the latest designs have moved the focus from snow grip to the wet and dry conditions more likely to be experienced. The firm seems to have made the same move, but at a lower performance level. While others have sacrificed a little snow grip to enhance other areas, Bridgestone finished last by some margin in Finland. 

It was much more effective in the wet, with decent aquaplaning resistance and a win in braking. It was runner-up in dry braking, but economy is a concern. A move in the right direction, but needs better execution.

We say: fuel economy is a concern and needs a more balanced performance overall

Blackcircles.com says: This has become a popular tyre with customers. Positive reviews focus on its wet-weather performance and aquaplaning resistance. Over 380 reviews have produced a 4.6/5 score.
