SimpleTire Review: Bridgestone Blizzak WS70


Bridgestone’s Blizzak WS70 is a strong selling winter tire, and for good reason. The Blizzak WS70 is actually the fourth generation of Bridgestone Winter Biter tires, with plenty of technological and design advances to reflect that evolution.

The Blizzak WS70’s tread compound is designed with Bridgestone’s NanoPro-Tech silica-enhanced Tube Multicell formulation on top of their standard winter compound. Tube Multicell technology is designed with thousands of microscopic tubes and cells incorporated into the rubber, helping to wick water away from the tire’s contact patch; as the tire’s tread wears, new pores and tubes are continuously exposed. The compound is also designed for flexibility at freezing te ...[more]

Throwback Thursday: 1948 Tucker Torpedo


The Tucker Torpedo could have been a legendary American success story, if the stars had lined up and things had worked out differently. The car was truly ahead of its time for the late 1940s, with many innovative design and safety features . Such as:

·       A third headlight at the center, which would follow the car’s steering mechanism and light the car’s way around corners

·       Rear engine and rear wheel drive, with a subframe that would allow for easy service, lowering the entire engine from the car in minutes

·       Perimeter frame for stability and crash protection, with a roll bar built into the roof

Simple Tire Roundup: Performance Winter Tires


Winter tires have changed and evolved a lot in the last couple of decades…the days of heavy-treaded, noisy “snow tires” (or as your dad might have called them, “mud grips”) are pretty much over with, and many states don’t allow metal-stud tires on pavement. So in winter, you have to cope with glare ice, deep snow, slushy roads and packed snow…but you still want a winter tire that’s quiet and presents decent handling, ride and road manners on dry, clear pavement. So let’s have a look at some of our choices:

Throwback Thursday: 1953 Chevrolet Corvette


The Corvette is one of the most iconic names in American sports cars, but the introductory 1953 model wasn’t exactly a barn-burner. It was released late in the model year, and was derived from a show car design;  the show car at the ’53 Motorama display at the New York Auto Show was a hot enough item to spike Chevrolet’s interest in putting together a production version to sell to the public. GM management wanted to keep production costs down, so the Corvette was based on the mechanicals of the stodgy 1952 Chevy sedan, albeit with the rakish two-seater fiberglass body. Interestingly, the Corvette’s iconic fiberglass design was also a cost-cutting measure, holding down the production costs involved in developing the tooling for an all-sheet metal body.

The ’53 Corvette didn’t even have a V8 engine – Chevro ...[more]

Nokian Hakkapelitta 5 

Designed for SUV’s, the Nokian Hakkapelitta 5 is a winter tire that provides excellent, stable handling and first-rate surface grip.

Simple Tire Review: Hankook Winter iPike W409


Perfect for smaller sedans and crossovers, the Hankook Winter iPike W409 is an affordable winter tire that excels in snow and slush conditions. The Winter iPike W409 uses a winter tread formulation that’s compounded to stay flexible in subfreezing temperatures, for great traction. A wider footprint ensures a smoother ride and more stable handling and cornering on wet or dry pavement, with a dense pattern of sipes at the center tread for improved traction in nasty weather. A unique V-shaped tread pattern helps move water away from the contact patch to fight hydroplaning; the Winter iPike W409 can also be set up with six rows of studs for extreme conditions (where legal).

The Winter iPike W409 is a little noisier than many winter tires, ...[more]
