Want to enjoy the peace of mind that comes with a runflat tire without sacrificing ride quality or noise levels?
The Bridgestone Driveguard is a tire aimed at the safety-minded driver, rather than the hardcore spirited driving fanatic.
Because runflat tires have a strengthened sidewall which adds weight and stiffness. This generally means ride comfort is sacrificed and as a result the overall ride quality suffers.
However, runflat tire promises to change the game by delivering ride quality that is just as good as non-runflat tires. The ride is smooth, comfortable and responsive.
On dry roads and highways, the Bridgestone Driveguard delivers sure-footed traction and predictable handling at all speeds, and provides competent grip and stability when cornering. Any breakaway from Driveguard is smooth and easily controlled.
You’ll appreciate the extra level of safety and security the Driveguard provides in the event of a puncture. To help temporarily support the vehicle after a puncture causes a loss of air pressure, inside the tire are two steel belts which are reinforced with spirally wrapped nylon on top of a nylon cord casing.
Even if the tire suffers a complete loss of air pressure, the Bridgestone Driveguard will allow you to continue driving at speeds of over 50 miles per hour for up to 50 miles, so a puncture doesn’t mean you’ll have to change a tire on a busy highway or the middle of nowhere on a country backroad
The Driveguard performs extremely well in the rain so wet weather is no issue. They’re very predictable and give you extra grip when needed in an emergency braking situation. But as you’d expect from an all-season tire, deep snow and ice will give the Driveguard fits, however they handle light snow with surprising confidence, with braking performance being particularly impressive.
Bridgestone has set a new standard for run flat tires with the Driveguard. Road noise is minimal and the ride is very comfortable and responsive. You’d probably never know that Driveguard was a run flat tire by ride quality alone.
It is available in a range of 15 to 19 inch sizes. Bridgestone stands behind the Driveguard with a 30 day trial period. To sweeten the deal, if it isn’t repairable due to a flat within the first year or 12,000 miles, you’ll get a brand new one. If you don’t want to end up stranded on the side of the road, pick up a set of Bridgestone Driveguard Runflats.
