Bridgestone America engineering manager Kurt Berger shares some high- (and low-)tech tire advice.
“Just place a penny upside down in your tread. If any part of the queen’s crown is covered by the tread, you’re good to go. If
not, it’s time for new tires.”
“Tires are kind of like shoes. Snow boots are best for winter, while a pair of tennis shoes is perfect for a typical day of walking. You have to find the right tire for your
vehicle and your driving style.” “Driveguard tires from Bridgestone have ‘run-flat’ technology that enables you to keep driving for up to 80 kilometres, at up to 80 kilometres per hour, on a flat.” (From
