Bridgestone B290 Tyre Overview

The Japanese tyre giant Bridgestone Tyres has been ruling the Indian tyre industry for more than 20 years. In the past two decades, the tyre maker has introduced a wide range of tyres in the domestic tyre market and has given a tough competition to the likes of MRF, CEAT, Apollo, Michelin and Goodyear. Although Bridgestone’s portfolio houses different products for different passenger car segments, but the B290 has turned out to be the flagship tyre for the tyre maker due to its extensive fitment possibilities. Bridgestone B290 is available for cars ranging from Tata Nano to Audi A4 in 25 popular tyre sizes; fits in 12 to 16 inches wheels.

Termed as the successor of Bridgestone B250 tyre, the B290 is made to tackle the challenging road conditions. It comes with the modest features and capabilities such as Flat contact patch design for better handling, 3D Tread grooves for better grip, 5 different sized tread blocks to reduce noise, 2 ply sidewall construction, 10 percent better performance in the wet and dry conditions than the elder sibling B250 and much more.

Bridgestone B290 Tyre Compound

Bridgestone B290 Tyre

Bridgestone B290 tyre shares the MY-02 tyre styling and gets flexible rubber compound that doesn’t let it loose control on wet and dry conditions. There is an ultimate combination of flexibility and hardness on the outer surface. The base outside is flexible, however, the tread blocks are kept hard enough to offer superior handling. Besides, the B290 tyre gets a continuous nylon wrap under its skin that provides a higher level of uniformity and helps it to hold its original shape and deliver enhanced performance on roads.

Bridgestone B290 Tyre Construction Type

Bridgestone B290 gets a 2-ply sidewall construction along with a square profile, basically, a Flat Contact Patch (FCP) to the traditional rounded outer sidewall. Unlike the standard tyres, the Flat Contact Patch allows a larger tread area to come in contact with the road. Added to this, the ultra-efficient tread design of Bridgestone B290 tyre gets rows of low and high angle winding grooves that disperse more water through the tread channels. Furthermore, this tyre also has other remarkable benefits such as minimised shoulder wear and rarer tyre deformations.

Bridgestone B290 Tyre Performance

As far as the performance under practical conditions is concerned, the B290 wouldn’t disappoint at all. It is a great performer in wet and dry conditions and has superior handling and braking characteristics. Low noise levels while driving is another great advantage of Bridgestone B290 tyre. To reduce the tyre noise, Bridgestone has carved five different-sized tread blocks on the tyre profile. Added to this, from the point of safety and comfort too, the B290 is a great choice; credits flexible construction.

Bridgestone B290 Tyre Fuel Efficiency Factor

The state-of-the-art, Bridgestone B290 is an exemplary product from Bridgestone. The cutting-edge Japanese engineering enables this tyre to generate better traction on roads and reduce the rolling resistance thereby cutting the fuel consumption by a huge margin. For the mileage conscious Indian car owners, the B290 is a right fit.

Bridgestone B290 Warranty

Bridgestone B290 comes with a 3 years standard warranty. This warranty is applicable from the date purchase to either up to 3 years or till the exposure of tread wear indicators, whichever is earlier irrespective of kilometres covered.

Bridgestone B290 Tyre Speed Rating

Bridgestone B290 gets speed rating “T” which means that this tyre can bear sprint up to 190 km/h. For the entry level or mid-segment cars, touching 190 km/h is rarely a case, therefore this tyre is a good choice to go with. However, for the high-end cars like Audi A4, Volkswagen Jetta, BMW 1 Series etc. installing this tyre might turn out to be a speed barrier as these vehicles can clock over 190 km/h on the highways. The fact is that the B290 becomes unsafe over 190 km/h and restricts the speed potential of the cars with larger mills.

Bridgestone B290 is fitted in multiple car segments and therefore, it competes with a high number of rivals in the Indian tyre market. To mention, the B290 competitors are CEAT Milaze, JK Ultima NXT, Jk Tornado, JK UX Royale, Apollo Amazer 3G, Apollo Alnac, MRF ZEC, MRF ZVTS, MRF ZVT, Goodyear GP S2, Goodyear Ducaro Hi-Miler, the siblings Bridgestone B250, Bridgestone Turanza, Bridgestone Ecopia & Bridgestone S322, Yokohama Earth 1, Michelin XM2, Michelin Primacy, Continental CONTI MAX CONTACT MC5 and Pirelli P7.

Verdict

Price-wise, Bridgestone B290 is quite a reasonable tyre and it also secures high numbers for its impeccable performance under practical conditions. Both on wet and dry roads, it runs glued to the surface and disperses the water effectively through the five different sized tread blocks thereby ensuring more traction. It also deserves appreciation for its premium durability standards. Furthermore, from the point fuel efficiency too, the B290 is a value for money fitment option for cars. The only drawback is its compatibility with the premium cars as there are the likes of Michelin Primacy, Pirelli P7, Continental CONTI MC5 and Goodyear Eagle that have better speed rating.

  • Hello..T.M…team…
    I own Maruti Zen estilo vxi 2009 model.
    Kindly request you to suggest best tyre for my vehicle.
    My usage of vehicle is occassional and off the roads like city having very bad roads.
    My existing MRF zvts got cut in very short span after earlier replacement.
    OEM had fitted with JK Tornado but it feels hard.
    Long distance drive very occassional.
    So looking for durable, comfort , not so hard, not so soft considering road conditions in my area etc., Not so very costly, not very cheap etc. Plz Suggest.
    What is Unconditional Warranty ? And does it really helps in Claim. Or should go for regular warranty.
    So considering all above plz suggest not more than 2-3 brands n variants to avoid further confusion and dillema.
    Hope you understand my concern.
    I also have made my few choices which I will share u after your reply.
