Somewhere in the Chihuahuan Desert, halfway between El Paso and San Antonio, Texas is a remarkable place where the rubber literally meets the road in terms of tire safety, durability, and legendary Bridgestone quality. At the Bridgestone Texas Proving Grounds (TPG), we take all our tires to their limits in a variety of conditions all year long. We use special test courses to make certain our tires meet not only our demands but also the demands of our customers.
On our exciting test courses, hydroplaning is standard behavior and potholes are tended to like flowerbeds. This is the place where the highway, gravel and city streets all meet, ensuring our tires are tested in nearly every real-world condition.
