Bridgestone has been building some of the best winter tires in the world for many years. In 2008 and 2009 Bridgestone has introduced several new models of the classic Blizzak. Through the use of new advances in tread compound and design they've improved the winter performance of their line-up. Here's a breakdown of the new additions to the Blizzak lineup.
Bridgestone Blizzak WS-60
Since it's debut last winter, the WS-60 has proven to offer the best snow and ice traction on the market. It achieves this amazing grip without the use of metal studs; instead using it's directional tread design and advanced multicell tread compound. This studless ice and snow tire is recommended for those seeking to get the absolute best snow and ice traction available for their car.
Bridgestone Blizzak DMV1
Brand new this season, the Blizzak DMV1 is Bridgestone's light truck and SUV version of the WS-60. While the tread pattern is not exactly the same, it does feature a directional pattern with a multicell compound. These offer the best snow and ice traction on the market for your light truck and SUV.
Bridgestone Blizzak LM-60
This is Bridgestone's performance winter / snow tire for sports cars. The LM-60 uses the same aggressive tread design seen on the Blizzak WS-60 but offers better dry road handling and grip for the clear days. The LM-60 has firmer sidewalls to improve steering response while offering some of the best snow and ice traction available in a performance winter / snow tire.
