Full Tyre Description

Bridgestone's second-generation all-season touring tyre, the Weather Control A005 Evo is built using Bridgestone’s advanced, high silica NanoPro-tech compound technology. This allows the A005 Evo to offer enhanced fuel efficiency alongside improved winter performance. Like its predecessor, the Weather Control A005, the new EVO delivers year-round control, safety and convenience. The tyre has optimised carcass construction and contact pressure distribution. Bridgestone says the tyre offers similar mileage performance to its premium summer tyres, subject to driving style and maintenance. The Weather Control A005 Evo features a V-shaped tread with Z-shaped sipes - small slits in the tread blocks. These deliver better traction, braking, and acceleration on snow. Before beginning the design, Bridgestone questioned 15,000 European drivers about their day-to-day driving challenges. Bridgestone found that safety in wet conditions was one of the biggest concerns and that drivers wanted to be confident that their tyres were capable of handling different kinds of weather conditions. In addition to its A-grade wet grip on the European tyre label, the A005 EVO has B/C-grade fuel efficiency. DriveGuard runflat versions of the tyre are graded E in this category.
