We Compare Bridgestone Tires on the Ice

Tuesday, September 27, 2011 by Tire Rack Team
Do all-season tires on a front-wheel drive vehicle perform the same as a set of performance winter tires? To find out, we compared a set of Bridgestone Turanza EL400-02 (Standard Touring All-Season) tires with the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70 (Studless Ice and Snow) tires on one of the American market's most popular front-wheel drive cars, the 2012 Honda Civic.

As previous tests we performed on rear- and all-wheel drive vehicles have shown, the Blizzak winter tires performed better in the acceleration, braking and cornering tests. They were able to accelerate 1.5 seconds faster, stop 18.5 feet sooner and take corners faster than the all-season tire challenger.

Take a look at "Are Front-Wheel Drive and All-Season Tires Enough for Winter Driving?" for the full test results and to watch the video. We think the results will encourage even the hard-core skeptics among us to buy winter tires for their improved traction on hard-packed snow and ice.
