    After a long search, I chose Driveguards. My car has a sport suspension - I have a feeling that after installing Bridgestone, the car seemed to drive more efficiently – it’s especially visible at higher speeds. The only downside is that it takes slightly more fuel.

    I was apprehensive about these tyres, because at the end of the day, they are a novelty on the market and I’ve never had runflats mounted before. Despite my doubts, the tyres proved to be 100% and I’ve noticed the fuel consumption somehow has not increased too much. I expected that, on straight roads the ride will be comfortable, but the grip on cornering has completely surprised me. I would recommend these 100%

    I traveled on them 8000 km in 3 months. No problems so far. In August I traveled from Ireland to Poland. At speeds around 200 per hour for 300 km, the tyres were not even warm. If you drive 120 km/h, you will start to hear them, but it depends on the surface.

    The best RF I have ever had. I have swapped to these tyres from the Dunlop Sport 01 RFT. On my new rubbers, I feel a better grip and shorter braking on wet roads. My fuel intake hasn’t changed

    Unfortunately, I had to check the strength of Runflats after about 2000 miles. I damaged a tyre on a journey (thrust screw), but I easily got to the vulcaniser 60km away. Still i recommend

Product description

Bridgestone DriveGuard 215/55 R16 97 W RUN ON FLAT XL

Bridgestone DriveGuard is a premium summer tyre that uses RunFlat technology but it’s not a regular RunFlat tyre. Our model is a unique product that may be installed on any car with tyre pressure sensors.

Bridgestone DriveGuard does not require special adjustment of the suspension system or calibration of the driving assistance system, making the benefits of RunFlat technology available to wider group of drivers.

Bridgestone DriveGuard always get you to your destination. Tyres get punctured in the least expected situations. Often, there is no chance for a quick tyre change or visiting a service station. This tyre won't let you down in the middle of a forest. You’ll always reach your destination on time, e.g., an important meeting.

DriveGuard is also unique in terms of its design and structure. Like any other RunFlat tyre, it has reinforced side walls, but in this case we selected materials similar to those used in traditional tyres. This solution ensures better travel comfort than classic RunFlat tyres .

Bridgestone DriveGuard not only provides comfortable driving after a puncture (for 80 km at speeds up to 80 km/h) but also a high level of performance in terms of safety and cost efficiency.

The model has an asymmetric tread, suitable for summer conditions. The outer part of the tread maintains adequate grip when cornering and during dynamic manoeuvres. The inner part in turn, is responsible for water evacuation. Sudden downpours or sizzling asphalt are not real challenges for this tyre.

Bridgestone DriveGuard gets Class A in the wet braking category and C Class in fuel economy.
