    Bridgestone is the world’s most trusted tyre brand. We invest $800 million in research and development annually and test 10,000 tyres each day at one of our 10 proving grounds around the globe. It’s this commitment to quality and safety that sits at the heart of everything we do. When you buy Bridgestone tyres, you buy peace of mind. With Bridgestone, you’re in safe hands. Find out more about Bridgestone tyres.


    Bridgestone follows the recommendations of the industry associations regarding tyre life and inspection guidelines. We recommend that, in addition to regular tyre inspections, customers have their tyres inspected by a qualified tyre service person after three (3) years of use to determine if the tyres can continue in service. It is recommended that spare tyres be inspected at the same time. Further, even when tyres appear to be usable from their external appearance or the tread depth may have not reached the minimum wear out depth, it is recommended that all tyres (including spare tyres) that were manufactured more than five (5) years previous be replaced with new tyres.
    Original Equipment tyres are engineered to meet specific requirements set by the car maker. Replacement tyres are designed to provide the performance and treadwear most drivers expect for a particular type of tyre.
    You can purchase our on-site fitting service at the same time as buying your tyres, or even afterwards. You can also bring tyres purchased through our website to any of our outlets for free fitting and wheel balancing. Finally, you can have your tyres fitted from within our authorised dealer network, who will mount and balance most passenger and light truck tyres for a small fee.
    How do I identify directional vs non-directional tyres? Directional tyres have an arrow symbol on their sidewall to indicate the direction they should roll. Non-directional tyres do not. To learn more, visit

    The tyres on your car are best replaced with the size nominated on the vehicle tyre placard. Changing the tyre size away from the vehicle manufacturer’s standard size could make that vehicle un-roadworthy, which in turn could render it ‘un-insured’. Read our tyre size guide to find the right tyre size for your vehicle.
    The UTQG is a global standard that helps customers compare tyre performance in terms of tread, traction and temperature. Every tyre manufacturer is required to independently test and brand these ratings on tyres released to the market. While the standards are a good indicator, it is important to keep in mind that tyre performance will vary depending on road conditions and use.
    Tread, traction and temperature ratings are known as the Universal Tire Quality Grading (UTQG) standard. Every tyre manufacturer is required to independently test and brand these ratings on tyres released to the market.
    It is important to keep in mind that the ratings are determined by each manufacturer and while they are a great tool for comparing similar tyres from the same manufacturer, results when comparing tyres from different manufacturers may be inconsistent.
    Real life tyre performance is also dependent on road conditions, the type of vehicles and how your vehicle is driven. These variables may not be accounted for in a controlled testing environment.
    Let’s take a closer look at the ratings: Treadwear is the wear rate of a tyre. The higher the number, the better the treadwear. For example, the wear rate of the Bridgestone Potenza RE003 is 220.
    The traction rating represents a tyre's ability to stop on wet pavement. This rating carries a code of, "A," "B," or "C", with "A" signifying the highest traction efficient.
    The temperature rating indicates a tyre’s resistance to heat generation. A tyre’s heat resistance is determined by its ability to dissipate heat. This rating carries a code of "A," "B," or "C," with "A" signifying the highest level of heat dissipation.
    Tyres must be replaced when the tyre tread wears level with the Tread-wear Indicators (TWI’s) which are positioned in the main tyre tread grooves of all road-going tyres.
    The tread-wear indicator is designed to appear when 1.5mm of tread is remaining in the groove containing the TWI.

    If a tyre is known to be older than 5 years (from date of manufacture) it is advisable to replace it due to potential age degradation. Find out how to check your tyre tread depth.
    You can tell the age of a tyre from the serial number on the sidewall. Find out more on tyre age.
    Tyre life can be maximised by correct and regular tyre and vehicle maintenance (correct tyre pressure, regular tyre rotation and regular wheel alignment). Find out more information from about caring for your tyres.
    It is recommended that tyres be inflated to the pressure shown on the Vehicle Tyre Placard located in your car. The tyre placard will show the minimum inflation pressure recommended for city and/or highway (or heavily loaded) use. Find out about tyre inflation pressure.
    The rolling resistance of a tyre is the power needed to roll that tyre along the road.
    A ‘low rolling resistance’ tyre will require less power to roll along the road, so has the potential to provide better fuel-economy for your car.
    There are three primary factors that impact on tyre life, type of tyre, driving conditions, driving style and level of tyre maintenance. We recommend a good level of tyre maintenance on all tyres to include tyre pressure checks, regular tyre rotations and vehicle wheel-alignments. Correct maintenance will always allow your tyres to last as long as possible. Find out more about tyre care and maintenance.
    The sidewall of your tyre is the part between the edge of the wheel and the tread. If you look closely at the sidewall, you will notice a series of numbers that give you important information about your tyre’s specifications.
    • Width
    • Aspect
    • Rim Size
    • Load
    • Speed

    A code indicating the speed at which your tyre can be safely operated. Again, this is subject to your tyre being in sound condition, correctly fitted and inflated at the recommended pressure.

    Run-flat tyres are designed to be capable of operating at lower speed and for a limited distance without air, in the case of a puncture. If a puncture occurs, run flat tyres allow you to keep driving for a limited amount of time. In normal operation RFT tyres still require inflation to the pressure shown on the vehicle tyre placard.
    Not all vehicles can be fitted with Run Flat Tyres. You can find out more about Bridgestone Run-Flat technology Clcik Here
    Bridgestone brand Run-Flat Tyres are marked on the sidewalls, near the wheel, with the RFT logo.
    Follow your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendation for inflation pressure settings as indicated on the vehicle tyre information placard and/or in the vehicle owner’s manual. Like other tyres, RFT tyres need proper inflation pressure maintenance for safe operation and to achieve maximum tyre life and performance. Check inflation pressures monthly and before long trips or carrying extra weight. Use an accurate tyre gauge and check pressures when the tyres are cold. Tyres are considered “cold” when the vehicle has been parked for three hours or more, or if the vehicle has been driven less than 1.6 km at moderate speed.
    Do not replace or mix RFT with conventional tyres, unless on an emergency/temporary basis. Conventional tyres do not have run-flat capability and the handling characteristics of the vehicle with these tyres may be different. If a conventional tyre is used on an emergency/temporary basis, verify that its size, load capacity, inflation pressure, and speed rating specifications meet the requirements of the vehicle. Replace any conventional tyre with the proper RFT as soon as possible.
    functioning Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) must be used with your RFT. Because these tyres ride so well even without inflation pressure, the TPMS may be necessary to alert you of an inflation pressure loss condition. When alerted, follow the instructions in your vehicle owner’s manual.
    Your RFT will be marked on the sidewall with run-flat or low tyre pressure operating speed of 80 km/h. If the sidewall indicates a distance limitation, do not exceed that number. If the sidewall does not specify a distance limitation, consult your vehicle owner’s manual as run-flat or low tyre pressure operating limitations vary by tyre design and vehicle applications. Note: Maximum distance values are determined under controlled conditions, which may vary in actual use. Your distance capability may be less, or more, depending on your specific operating conditions. If in doubt, do not exceed the 80 km limitation. Seek tyre service as soon as possible to minimize tyre damage.
    No tyre, regardless of its design or quality, is indestructible. RFT can be rendered unusable due to a puncture or other road hazard as well as from improper tyre pressure maintenance. Some punctures may be repaired under certain restrictions and prescribed procedures. In addition to low pressure, the factors affecting ability to repair an RFT include: vehicle speed, load, and manoeuvring; the amount of inflation pressure loss; and ambient temperature. In any situation, the extent and location of a puncturing object or other road hazard are also critical factors. Run-Flat Certified Retailers will fully inspect your tyre, inside and out, to determine if the tyre can be repaired. Tyre damage is not always visible from the outside and the tyre must be removed from the wheel for a complete inspection. Note: Some vehicle manufacturers do not recommend using repaired tyres. Consult your vehicle owner’s manual or contact the vehicle manufacturer before operating a vehicle that has a repaired tyre.


    Check the air pressure in your tyres (including spares) monthly and before long trips or carrying extra weight. Be sure to use an accurate pressure gauge. Check inflation pressure when the tyres are “cold.” Tyres are considered “cold” when the vehicle has been parked for three hours or more, or if the vehicle has been driven less 1.6 km at moderate speed.
    Always keep the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended inflation pressure in your tyres, including the spare. Check the pressure in your tyres monthly and before long trips or carrying extra weight.
    A tyre bearing a letter “speed rating” indicates the tyre’s speed capability according to standardised lab tests. The speed rating system is intended to permit comparison of the speed capabilities of different tyres. When replacing your tyres, consult your vehicle owner’s manual and tyre information placard for recommendations, if any, concerning the use of speed rated tyres
    If you see damage or an unusual condition, have your tyre inspected by a qualified tyre service professional. It may be necessary to have it removed from the wheel for a complete inspection.
    Removing and replacing tyres on wheels can be dangerous. Attempting to mount tyres with improper tools or procedures may result in a tyre explosion causing serious personal injury or death. This is only a job for a qualified tyre service professional. Never perform tyre service procedures without proper training, tools, and equipment. For a qualified tyre service professional, please visit us in-store.


    Nitrogen molecules are larger than oxygen molecules, which means nitrogen escapes more slowly through the inner liner membrane used to retain air. The process of air escaping is known as permeability. This can mean tyres maintain their correct pressure longer with nitrogen. Nitrogen's dryness makes it more stable than standard compressed air. In contrast, the compressed air in your tyres contains water vapor. This water vapor might promote corrosion in some wheels (and tyre pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) if your vehicle is equipped with one), and water vapor pressure fluctuates with temperature changes. This means tyre pressures may vary more as ambient temperatures rise and fall than they would with nitrogen-filled tyres.
    If your tyres are already filled with nitrogen and their pressure is low, topping them off with air is acceptable. However, if you visit us, we will top them up with Nitrogen for free.
    Whether you choose to fill your tyres with nitrogen or compressed air, the most important aspect of tyre maintenance is maintaining the correct tyre pressure. Properly inflated tyres wear more evenly, stop and handle better, improve your vehicle’s fuel economy and last much longer. Note: whether your tyres are filled with nitrogen or air, it is still important to check tyre pressure monthly. Air can be lost through more than just the inner liner – the valve, wheel or a small puncture could allow a drop in pressure – so skipping those monthly checks is never a good idea.
