Bridgestone Tire – The Largest Rubber and Tire Company in the World
The Bridgestone Tire group works with a lot of automobile manufacturers in Japan, Europe and across the Americas to develop tires that will be used as original equipment on new cars. Some vehicles that come with Bridgestone tires as original equipment are: Toyota Prius, Honda Civic, Accord and Fit, Toyota Yaris and Prius, Subaru Impreza and Outback, Nissan Sentra and Maxima, Pontiac Vibe, Acura TL and many others.

The Ecopia series enables reduced fuel consumption and has a longer-lasting durability.
Bridgestone Winter Tires
Bridgestone Tire released the Blizzak WS 70, a winter tire that offers excellent and good traction on ice and snow, respectively. Similarly to the previous model (Blizzak WS 60), the Blizzak WS 70 suits cars and SUVs of some sizes. The Blizzak DMV1 and Blizzak W965 from Bridgestone are designed for vans, pick-up trucks, 4x4s and jeeps and offer a good alternative for traction on snow.
LT and A/T tires will be accepted in Quebec during winter until 2014. Therefore, all Bridgestone Dueler A/T tires are allowed for jeeps, pick-up trucks and 4x4s during winter.
Some information on Blizzak
Bridgestone Blizzak is a studless winter tire originally developed for Japan during the 1980s in order to answer growing environmental concerns over studded tires. Most Bridgestone Blizzak tires use a double composite—Multicell and winter composites. Multicell is composed of thousands of microscopic cells, much like pores which remind the texture of Swiss cheese when observed through a microscope, thus creating thousands of gripping particles that cling to the road.
