Bridgestone Americas launches Firestone WeatherGrip, the first all-weather touring tire in the U.S. and Canada.

Engineered to go beyond traditional all-season performance, the Firestone WeatherGrip tire is Three-Peak Mountain Snowflake certified and specially designed for control in wet and snowy conditions.

“Drivers today are looking for durable, dependable tires that work hard and keep them in control in every driving season,” said Erik Seidel, president, consumer replacement tire sales, U.S. and Canada, Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations. “This is why we built the Firestone WeatherGrip tire to provide enhanced grip in wet and winter conditions, so drivers can confidently take on any forecast.”

The Firestone WeatherGrip tire utilizes a tread pattern designed with full-depth grooves and open shoulder slots for enhanced water evacuation. The all-weather tire is also engineered with a rounded footprint where the rubber meets the road, allowing it to cut through water to help reduce the risk of hydroplaning.

The Firestone WeatherGrip tire also features TractionTech, a new technology package exclusive to Firestone. TractionTech leverages a full-depth tread design and interlocking sipes to ensure the tire maintains its wet and snow performance over its 65,000-mile (105,000 kilometre) limited warranty.

The Firestone WeatherGrip tire is available in 33 sizes that fit more than 60% of the most popular cars and crossovers on the road today.
