The Bridgestone Weather Control A005 EVO clinched the top spot, finishing 1st among 15 competitors in an extensive evaluation. This performance was distinguished by its excellent wet braking and wet circle cornering capabilities, truly setting it apart in these disciplines. However, the tyre did face some criticism, notably for its only satisfactory driving qualities on snow and ice. Additionally, concerns were raised regarding its delayed steering response and understeering in snowy conditions, along with an average mileage performance. Despite these critiques, its short braking distances on wet surfaces combined with a low rolling resistance underscored its strengths in crucial areas of performance.
