WHY CHOOSE BRIDGESTONE TYRES

There are all kinds of reasons why you might be calling etyres.ng for help. You may have run over a nail and popped a tyre. You may have had a run-in with an especially viscous pothole. However, there’s a pretty good chance that you have not been paying enough attention to your tyres. Maybe they’ve never been rotated. Maybe you bought the cheapest brand you could find. Maybe they’re old and worn out.

If you’ve got good, well maintained tyres and you’ve just had some bad luck, then you’ll probably be replacing your damaged tyre with one that’s the same brand as the rest. However, if poor tyre quality or all-around wear was a factor in your blow-out, then you may be replacing all your tyres. You won’t want to call us three more times, as the others fail one by one. If you’re going for a full new set of tyres, then you should be thinking about what brand to buy this time. One excellent choice is Bridgestone.

AN ICONIC BRAND

Bridgestone is a Japanese company that started up back in 1931 in Kurume, Fukuoka. Shojiro Ishibashi was the founder and his name, Ishibashi, means “stone bridge” when translated into English. That makes a great name for a tyre company, doesn’t it? Bridgestone has plants all around the world, so you can get some of their products in different countries like Australia & Thailand.

Bridgestone owns Firestone in the U.S., and they also have a large European operation. In fact, they are the world’s largest tyre manufacturer. In 2010, they pulled in $35.3 billion worth of revenue.

BRIDGESTONE IS KNOWN FOR HIGH QUALITY

Well, large companies in the automotive industry are deeply invested in creating high quality, consistent products using the most efficient methods they can develop. Bridgestone is a large, well established multinational corporation, you know that they have a huge stake in process management and quality control and indeed, their website has detailed information on their quality control philosophy. They monitor quality, they ask their customers for feedback, and they have systems in place for continuous improvement.

BRIDGESTONE’S LARGE SELECTION OF TYRES SETS THEM APART

Bridgestone has a very wide range of products. You can select one of the top-rated premium Bridgestone tyre ranges: Potenza, Turanza, Dueler or Ecopia. Potenza tyres are race car-tested and performance oriented; they give you total control. Turanza are Birdgestone’s premium luxury tyre, for the very smoothest, safest ride. Duelers are specially designed for 4x4s, and Ecopia tyres are engineered for maximum fuel efficiency. Alternatively, you can choose affordable Bridgestone classics for your passenger car, light truck or 4×4.

You may be able to avoid further visits from etyres.ng by choosing Bridgestone Runflat tyres or RFTs. RFTs don’t go flat. Even when they’re deflated, they keep enough of their shape to get you home, or at least to the next service station. There’s only one catch. In order to use RFTs, your car must be equipped with an on-board tyre pressure monitoring system, or TPMS. If you call or e-mail, we can give you the details.

You can trust the quality of Bridgestone tyres. Both their premium and standard ranges are a good choice for all kinds of cars and trucks.

TOP 4 REASONS TO BUY PREMIUM TYRES

People often see cheaper tyres as an easy fix to tyres that are coming to an end of their lifespan. However, in the long run premium tyres can actually turn out to be a cheaper alternative whilst increasing safety and performance.

Here are the top 5 reasons to purchase premium tyres:

1. SAVE MONEY ON FUEL

Premium tyres tend to have a much better fuel efficiency rating than budget tyres. To simplify the explanation these premium tyres are designed to reduce the resistance of your vehicle and the road. The less resistance there is between the car and the road the less energy the engine outputs. So having a less resistance tyre means you save fuel on the energy outputted.

2. PREMIUM TYRES ARE LONGER LASTING

Much like handbags or watches it is usually the more expensive brands that last longer and have a longer life. The premium tyre brands are made out of higher quality material and can last longer to wear down over budget brands, meaning you are actually spending less for the days you have used the tyres compared to budget.

3. SHORTER DISTANCES TO STOP

Thanks to Nigerian weather conditions we all know that it can be sunny in one moment but a torrential downpour the next. In this wet weather the premium tyres really stand out. Stopping distances in wet weather conditions can be the difference between a minor prang and major collision. As mentioned in a previous blog, the difference in tyre ratings can mean as much as 15 metres difference when coming to a stop on wet roads.

4. MORE TRACTION ON THE ROAD AND BETTER HANDLING

Premium brand tyres are built to last and millions of dollars have gone into developing them to be the best they can be. They cost the amount they do because of this.
