Bridgestone Corporation announced the launch of the all-new Bridgestone Alenza AS Ultra tire. Delivering an exceptional balance of wet, winter and wear performance, the Bridgestone Alenza AS Ultra tire is the company's most premium highway touring option for drivers looking for a luxury driving experience and year-round control from their SUV, CUV or truck. The Bridgestone Alenza AS Ultra tire is backed by an 80,000-mile limited warranty the longest offered within the Bridgestone tire portfolio and the SUV, CUV and truck tire market giving drivers more premium performance and life from their tires. Featuring a next-generation, high-silica tread compound that contributes to improved wet and winter performance, the Bridgestone Alenza AS Ultra is engineered for controlled handling year-round. The proprietary tread design also includes snow vices for additional grip on snowy roads and Bridgestone QuietTrack technology, small strategically placed serrations that break up tread pattern noise, for a quiet and comfortable ride. As the first product in the all-new Bridgestone Alenza line focused on replacement luxury highway touring tires, the Alenza AS Ultra tire builds on the success of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus, offering a 13% improved acceleration in wet conditions, 14% improved braking on dry roads, and 10% improved braking in snow.2 The new tire also boasts a category-leading 7% advantage in acceleration on dry roads.
