The tyres will have a rating for fuel efficiency from A – G; A-rated tyres being the most fuel efficient and G-rated tyres being the least fuel efficient.
Choosing more fuel efficient tyres not only lowers the cost of driving as you use less fuel, but also reduces Carbon Dioxide emissions which in turn helps the environment.
By choosing to fit A-rated tyres over G-rated tyres, you will save an average of 7.5% in fuel a year. (Please note D ratings are not used).
The second area rated by the new tyre label is wet braking distances e.g. how long it takes a tyre to stop when braking in wet weather. Tyres are rated from A – F (D and G ratings are not used).
Choosing A-rated tyres over F-rated tyres could reduce wet braking distances by up to 18 metres.
The final rating is external noise emissions. This is not the noise heard by the driver, but external noise made by the tyre.
This is measured in decibels (dB) and is indicated by one, two or three black waves on the label; with one wave being the quietest to three waves being the loudest. So the more black waves, the louder the tyre.
The Bridgestone B250 tyres are premium tyres suited for small and medium vehicles. Known for their innovation, Bridgestone has incorporated unique technology into the tyre to offer the best combination of ride comfort, performance and safety.
Superb levels of control: The tyre tread comprises of large tread blocks on the shoulders, which maximise the handling characteristics on dry and wet surfaces. The tyres respond almost instantaneously to steering commands, enhancing your control particularly during tricky turns. Superb control naturally improves driver confidence.
Superior safety on wet roads: The tread pattern contains large grooves with multiple sipes. The grooves deflect water away from the contact patch and reduce risk of aquaplaning. The sipes break up the film of water and improve traction and braking responsiveness on wet surfaces. Wet cornering characteristics are improved due to the superior traction.
Quiet driving experience: Tyre noise is generated as a result of the tread pattern's interaction with air and other external factors. Using high end computer technology, the Bridgestone B250 tyre tread pattern is optimised to minimise the tyre noise. You can be assured of a peaceful and quiet ride.
Outstanding value for money proposition: The tread compound used and the large tread blocks are more resistant to irregular tread wear. As a result, the tyres last long, obviating the need for frequent tyre replacements that can be quite expensive in the long run.
