Bridgestone Launches DriveGuard Plus Next-Gen Touring Tire

The run-flat technology allows drivers to continue their journey up to 50 miles at up to 50 mph following a puncture.

Bridgestone Americas (Bridgestone) announced the launch of its all-new Bridgestone DriveGuard Plus premium touring tire, which it says is designed to deliver a comfortable ride backed by the security of an extended mobility promise. In addition to best-in-class run-flat technology, the DriveGuard Plus offers improvements in wet and winter performance for all-season reliability.

“When we were designing the next generation of the Bridgestone DriveGuard tire, our goal was to produce a run-flat tire that significantly reduces the trade-offs that consumers may expect,” said Mirella Cielo, president, consumer replacement tire sales and marketing, Bridgestone Americas. “The DriveGuard Plus is an important step toward providing more drivers with extended mobility to help improve their journey.”

Bridgestone says its DriveGuard Plus tire is backed by a 65,000-mile limited warranty1, and its run-flat technology ensures vehicles can continue up to 50 miles at up to 50 mph after a puncture.2 Featuring 3D full-depth sipe technology, the DriveGuard Plus tire is engineered to perform year-round with improved performance in wet and winter conditions.
