DriveGuard 195/55RF16

The DriveGuard is Bridgestone™s Grand Touring All-Season self-supporting replacement run-flat tire designed to satisfy drivers looking for a longer wearing, better riding option to replace Original Equipment run-flat tires, as well as safety-minded drivers whose cars* were not originally available with run-flat tires.

Features & Benefits

  • Featuring Bridgestone™s latest run-flat technology, DriveGuard tires are designed to offer almost the same riding comfort as conventional tires while providing temporary extended mobility for a distance of 50 miles at up to 50 mph even after a puncture has allowed complete air pressure loss. DriveGuard tires can help drivers better manage their busy schedules by avoiding becoming stranded in a rural area, on a crowded expressway or in inclement weather because of a flat tire.
  • DriveGuard tires are also designed to provide year-round driving flexibility by offering predictable handling, traction and control on dry and wet roads, as well as in light snow.
  • DriveGuard tires mold a silica-enhanced all-season tread compound into an asymmetric tread design that blends predictable handling and cornering stability with long wear and all-season traction. Circumferential and cross grooves help evacuate water to resist hydroplaning while engineered sipes increase the number of biting edges to enhance wet road and wintertime traction.
  • The tire's internal structure includes twin steel belts reinforced by spirally wrapped nylon on top of a rayon cord casing that features reinforced sidewalls to temporarily support the vehicle after a puncture causes a loss of air pressure. Bridgestone's NanoPro-Tech Sidewall reinforced rubber compound is molded into sidewalls that feature a sophisticated Cooling Fin Design to blend run-flat performance with a lighter-weight construction that doesn't sacrifice as much ride comfort.

Dry Wet Snow Comfort Noise Treadwear
On Bridgestone DriveGuard Tires
I researched run flat tires for months as we do not have a spare due to a third seat in our Rogue. I finally decided on these Bridgestones and got a few local quotes. I then found Simple Tire. I saved around $250 including installation (which was cheaper than quoted on the site). Free shipping was a bonus. The site recommendation of NTB for installation was perfect. They were terrific. Got an engine service as well. It was just "Simple".

Dry Wet Snow Comfort Noise Treadwear
On Bridgestone DriveGuard Tires
I haven't been able to put these tires through the full range of tests as it is not winter here yet and it hasn't been very wet either. I drive a 2012 BMW 550 xDrive and had to deal with the Goodyear stock run-flats. They were noisy, harsh riding and expensive to replace. IMO not a good tire, terrible wet traction, loud and made the ride too heavy and clunky. The Bridgestone's are an improvement in the ride quality and noise levels. I immediately noticed the difference. They are also a little "softer" in that they do not immediately handle as well as the Goodyear's, they are a little "floatier" in tight maneuvers. This did improve as i "scuffed" them up with a few miles. Still the turn in and hold comes in a little slower. They do hold as well, they simply do not enter the move as aggressively. I would still purchase these over the Goodyear's as the handling is not compromised, it is simply delivered a bit differently. As for wear, its too early to tell. I strongly recommend this tire over the stock Goodyear's run-flats for any BMW owner and other "stuck" in run-flat land.
