Competitors

The Bridgestone Weather Control A005 has received mixed reviews in various tests. It has been praised for its excellent performance on both dry and wet roads, with organizations such as ADAC and autobild noting its sporty, dynamic handling in these conditions. It also boasts precise steering, short braking distances, and low rolling resistance. Furthermore, TyreReviews.com highlights its high levels of comfort and low noise.

However, this tire's performance on snow appears to be its most significant drawback. ADAC and autobild describe its snow capabilities as weak, with poor grip and traction, as well as average aquaplaning resistance. TyreReviews.com reiterates the limited grip in snow too.

In summary, the Bridgestone Weather Control A005 is a solid choice for those living in regions with predominantly dry and wet conditions, offering great performance and comfort. However, for areas with heavy snowfall, this tire may not be the best option due to its snow performance limitations.

Sizes

Bridgestone Weather Control A005 is made in 87 sizes, starting from 175/65 R15 up to 245/45 R20.

Ranked #10 of 14
The Bridgestone Weather Control A005 emerged victorious in a competitive field, securing the top spot among 14 contenders. It distinguished itself with sports-like dynamic handling on both wet and dry surfaces, featuring short braking distances in those conditions and precise steering response. An added advantage was its low rolling resistance. However, it didn't perform as well in terms of lateral grip and traction on snow, with its durability receiving a moderate rating. Notable strengths of this tyre included leading the pack in dry handling, exterior noise, rolling resistance, and wet braking, showcasing its versatility and performance across various aspects, despite the mentioned weaknesses.

poor
Ranked #7 of 7
Finishing 7th out of 7 competitors, the Bridgestone Weather Control A005 did not impress in this particular evaluation, being branded with a final rating of 'Poor'. While it excelled, achieving the best scores in several key disciplines such as dry braking, dry driving behavior, safety, ice braking, ice lateral guidance, wet braking, wet circle cornering, and wet handling, its performance was severely compromised by its very weak performance on snow. This significant shortfall overshadowed its top-notch results on dry and wet surfaces, underscoring a critical limitation in its all-round capabilities.
