Choosing Bridgestone Winter Tires

Shopping for winter tires can be a little overwhelming. With so many brands and so many models, it’s hard to know which one is right for your vehicle, driving needs and weather conditions. Going with Bridgestone for your winter tires is a great start. On this page, we’ve given you detailed information on two of their more popular models the Blizzak WS90 and the Blizzak LT.

Blizzak WS90

Calgarians looking for winter tires for their sedans, coupes, minivans and crossovers that are made to handle Calgary winters can’t go wrong with the Bridgestone Blizzak WS90. It meets industry standards for winter performance and comes with the three-peak mountain snowflake stamp of approval.

The Blizzak WS90 is manufactured using Bridgestone’s Multi-Cell compound with bite particles, enabling the tire to remove the thin layer of water that forms between the tread and icy surfaces, allowing the tire to aggressively dig into the ice. Blizzak WS90s also use added silica in the tread compound for even more traction on ice and snow. To let drivers know how much Multi-Cell compound is still left on the tire’s surface, the Blizzak WS90 has a snow-platform indicator that wears down as the compound does. The tire is still effective after the Multi-Cell compound has worn off as Bridgestone’s silica-based compound is one of the best for bad weather conditions.

The tread features an asymmetric pattern that provides a greater contact surface and stiffened blocks to enhance driver control and increase the tire’s lifespan. For comparison, the Blizzak WS90 has a bigger contact area and 15% more block edges than the previous version. It’s made with Bridgestone’s Edge Performance Technology Package which includes full-depth, interlocking sipes that optimize the tire’s performance as it wears down.

Blizzak LT

If you’re driving a commercial light truck or van during Calgary’s winter months, Bridgestone’s Blizzak LT could be your answer for safely hauling heavy loads in extreme weather conditions. They are certified by the industry as meeting the criteria for winter tires and bear the three-peak mountain symbol.

Inside the Blizzak LT are sturdy, two-ply polyester cords casing and two durable steel belts that are reinforced by a nylon casing ply. These reinforcements help the Blizzak LT maintain its optimal tire shape under heavy loads.

The tire itself is made with Bridgestone’s Rugged LT compound to keep it flexible and responsive in freezing temperatures. This compound is molded into a deep tread with independent tread blocks and a high sipe density, for grip and traction on icy, slushy and snow-covered surfaces. The tread also has straight, wide circumferential grooves and a zig-zag center groove to push out water and slush and help you avoid hydroplaning. The zig-zag center groove also adds more traction assistance on snow and ice.

The Blizzak LT’s tread features tie bars in the shoulders that stabilize the tread blocks while in motion to keep the tire from flexing and ensure level contact with the road. This distributes acceleration, cornering and braking forces evenly for uniform tread wear and a longer tire life.

Bridgestone Winter Tires: Review

To sum up, Calgarians driving sedans, coupes, minivans and crossovers in the winter months can stay safe while getting great performance with the Blizzak WS90.

Commercial and light truck drivers who need a work tire that can handle the pressure of heavy loads and severe weather should look no further than the Blizzak LT.
