Overview

DriveGuard 245/45R18

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.

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".

On Bridgestone DriveGuard Tires
Comments:
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.
