Bridgestone B381 review
What is it?
The Bridgestone B381 is a passenger all season tire designed for small family sedans, and aims to increase efficiency and fuel economy for small family sedans.
Strengths and weaknesses?
Given tire pressure monitoring and a casual driving style, the B381 can provide some serious treadlife. As in, 100,000 miles on a set. It also does accomplish increased fuel economy according user feedback.
The B381 reportedly struggles in the snow and winter conditions. Not surprising considering this is an all season Bridgestone...
How does the B381 compare?
Folks who buy this tire tend to put heavy priority on fuel economy, and on that front the B381 delivers. Limited winter weather capability means this tire can't stand up to the leaders in the passenger all season category in terms of pure performance.
Anything else to know?
Some users report dry rotting with the B381. Look for little cracks running throughout the sidewalls.
If you're a hypermiler this may be your tire. Limited sizes available. For everyone else something like the Goodyear Assurance TripleTred All-Season is a better idea.
