About The New WS90

The Blizzak WS9bridgestone blizzak winter tire0 is an improved version and a successor to the previous WS80.

The former WS80 is a very good winter tire that does give a great performance on winter surfaces.

However, the new WS90 has a few additions and improvements in comparison to its predecessor.

Its tread compound through the multicell technology attracts water and then clears it from its surface for better grip and by so doing, has given the tire a 14% improvement in its stopping distance on ice compared to other leading competitors.

Also, it features nano pro-tech for better flexibility in cold weather conditions as it is well-known that rubber starts to get stiff at low temperatures.

Its tread design improves drainage which is very useful on a wet surface to avoid hydroplaning.

It has lasting tread than the WS80, so consumers can get two winter seasons out of this tire before its tread wear out completely.

As stated by Bridgestone, most of the new innovations and the improvement in the WS90 are based on customers’ and dealers’ feedback.

Just like the WS80, this tire is already set up to be a winner on winter driving surfaces.

The Blizzak WS90 is designed for drivers of coupes, minivans, crossovers, and sedans that want the best performance from their tires, even in the worst winter driving conditions.

They are considered ideal for those drivers that desire control, confidence, and secure handling in this driving condition.

The WS90 is made to replace the former WS80, which is not a bad idea as it is capable of delivering the best performance, just like the WS80 and even more.


The WS90 is advised by Bridgestone to be installed in sets of all four without mixing with another tire if you wish them to deliver the best performance, great handling and for its traction abilities to be at its best when driving through winter conditions.

  1. I was a big fan of the Blizzak WS80, having these on multiple vehicles. It was fun to go for rides in the snow and be completely confident in the traction those tires afforded. So I had high hopes for the new WS90s. Wow… what a letdown! I went out for a ride through the countryside in approximately 4″ of snow and the car was a handful, having little traction going uphills and having to slow WAAAY down to tip-toe around corners. The vehicle traction-control system never had such a workout! I might end up just leaving them on for the summer and using them up, then get something else for next winter. They do handle very well for a snow tire, though… on DRY roads.
