Bridgestone Blizzak WS80 215/50 R17 95 H XL, FR
The presented tyre is marked with 3PMSF symbol (Three Peak Mountain Snow Flake). It means that the tyre meets the EU requirements for winter tyres. The symbol is awarded after thorough tests of a tyre model in terms of snow grip.
The Blizzak WS80, a premium winter tyre developed by Bridgestone, is designed for passenger cars.
The model is more technically advanced than Blizzak WS70. Compared to the previous model, Blizzak WS80 is reinforced on the sides to minimise the risk of damage and to help stop the vehicle almost immediately, even in the most unfavourable conditions.
The tread features a pattern that supports the drainage of water or slush when driving on wet surfaces. One innovation is the tiny sticks located on the tyre, which act as needles. They stick into snow and ice, thus ensuring a comfortable drive.
With its modern compound, the product does not lose its properties, even at low temperatures. The tyre is flexible and adheres very well to the roadway, as a result it wears evenly and ensures maximum control of the vehicle.
