Do You Need Winter Tires?

Performance Tires
As an additional test, Bridgestone fitted the AWD Camry with its latest all-season performance tire, the Potenza Sport AS. We tested this tire on a wet track last year and were impressed with its impressive performance and grip. This tire is not built specifically to handle winter weather; however, it performed admirably on the packed snow. The grip was not even close to the experience with the Blizzak, but acceleration and braking were better than expected, with a consistent response. While there was some loss of traction when moving quickly through a curve in the track, traction let go linearly, making it predictable and easy to control for a smooth, safe drive.
