The Bridgestone Weather Control A005 EVO has received mixed reviews in various tests, with some highlighting its good performance on wet and dry roads, while others noting its shortcomings in handling snow.
In tests conducted by AUTO-Strassenverkehr, the tire exhibited well-balanced performance on snow, good grip on wet surfaces, and relatively precise handling in dry conditions. However, it also showed a comparably narrower limit on snow, earlier aquaplaning in heavy rain, and weakly audible rolling noise at low speeds.
Autobild's tests showcased the tire as an all-rounder, with excellent driving characteristics on wet and dry tracks, good winter qualities, and fuel-saving rolling resistance. Nevertheless, the tire performed poorly on snow and ice, with delayed steering response and understeering snow handling. Another test by Autobild revealed great traction and short braking distances on snow, precise handling, and good safety margins in wet conditions, but with longer dry braking distances.
TyreReviews.com praised the tire's excellent grip in wet and dry conditions, good aquaplaning resistance, short dry braking, and low rolling resistance. However, its snow performance was extremely limited, with the longest braking distances, lowest traction, and most challenging snow handling lap. The tire also had the highest internal noise in this test.
In summary, the Bridgestone Weather Control A005 EVO offers good performance on wet and dry roads, with certain tests highlighting its fuel-saving rolling resistance and precise handling. However, its snow handling capabilities are inconsistent and it may not be the best choice for drivers who frequently encounter snowy conditions.
