<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Then Bridgestone introduced a new type of winter tire which in addition to its exceptional snow traction could even come close to equaling the ice traction of studded tires ... without the studs. And by establishing a higher benchmark for dedicated winter tires, the Blizzak's exceptional snow and ice traction revealed the inherent compromises of all-season tires. Today, the Blizzak WS-50 represents the second generation of Bridgestone's WinterBiter tires. So if you want to maximize all of your vehicle's winter capabilities, the Bridgestone Blizzak WS-50 will help provide the snow and ice traction you need.
The Blizzak WS-50 features a symmetric tread design with flow-through grooves to help maintain good traction on wet and slush covered roads while its zig-zag sipes and independent tread blocks provide the edges to help bite through snow. It also features Bridgestone's latest Tube Multicell Compound which helps disperse water to reduce the risk of slipping on the thin surface film of water that makes ice so dangerous.
NOTE: The first 55% of the Blizzak WS-50 tread depth features the Link Multicell Compound while the remaining 45% features a standard winter tire compound.
The Blizzak WS-50 meets the industry's severe snow service requirements and is branded with the snowflake-on-the-mountain symbol. It features blackwall styling and is available in 80-, 75-, 70-, 65 and 60-series, Q-speed rated sizes for 13" to 16" wheel diameters.
Bridgestone's Ultimate Network of Intelligent Tire Technology (UNI-T) brings advanced tire technologies together, taking tire performance to a new level. This combination of innovative tire design, roundness and tread compound maximize the tire's performance, ride quality and wear.
Blizzaks on all wheels - Due to the revolutionary traction capabilities of the Blizzak, Bridgestone recommends using Blizzaks only in sets of four to provide the best handling characteristics and tire performance.
