Would'nt wish for Bridgestones if I were you. The B390-s that came with my 6 were the worst tires I've ever had - really noisy and no grip whatsoever on wet road. Moreover, because of my lazyness I ended up driving around with them in a snow for a couple of days before getting tires changed - the scariest experience of my life (replaced with studded Nokians for winter - I never ever use studless, ever).Originally posted by hieppo
I was really hoping to get Bridgestone like what someone else mentioned on another thread.[/b]
If you just had the Nokia Q (studdless winter tyres); it is way better for wintery conditions (like ice) than others... On snow the studdless ones are more or less equal. But I guess the Nokia tyres production is so small that it doesn't sell much outside Finland?Originally posted by hieppo
That is why the Blizzak are the best choice I can think of for non-studded.[/b]
It depends how it is tested, what things are more important and gives more scores in the test like usually (also when we talk about car tests). Here is braking distances and acceleration times between Nokia Q and Bridgestone Blizzak WS-50 (both tested with same Saab 9-5 and 195/65R15 tyre size):Originally posted by Steve 6er
But Blizzak is indeed better according to tests. I have those, and they work great for me. I've had such ones for four years now. They are better than studded ones too (because I include comfort in the equation).
And I drive a LOT on winter roads with lots of snow and ice...[/b]
