Winter is Coming Part 2: Performance Winter / Snow Tires

Performance Winter / Snow tire consumers generally live in areas that receive little or no snow accumulation, but experience freezing or near-freezing temperatures. The benefits using these tires are twofold. First, drivers get an increase in snow and ice traction, but unlike a Studless Ice & Snow tire, where you are keenly aware you are driving on a winter...  Read More

Introducing Bridgestone's Blizzak DM-V2: The Tire to Beat for Winter 2015?

For the past several years the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1 has been our highest consumer rated tire among a strong field of competitors in the Studless Ice & Snow (Light Truck) market. While it seems illogical to discontinue such a well liked product, history has proved that the Blizzak line of tires seem to evolve and rarely, if ever, take a step back....  Read More

These tires are the best winter tires I ever purchased after four winters in Quebec and two winters in New England.   Read More

This is an awesome tire...I live in Northern Maine where it's inclement weather all the time and this has made such a difference in my vehicle. Performance is A+++ in all areas...I highly recommend these tires!! They are even better than the studded snow tires I had!!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

Fantastic tires. Much quieter than I would have guessed. Made an immediate impact to traction on icy side streets and allets. What surprised me most was the road feel--they feel better and quieter than my all season tires from the factory. Less tire slap over things like potholes and expansion joints. Car feels new again! Love these tires and can't wait to...  Read More

Put these on a little bit to early in the season, however having no traction control, ABS or any of those things and a manuel gear box the ammount of hook in the wet was un real. I never could move in first or second however, these tires I can run through the gears with almost all traction and control. Less understeer in corners and if any, a slight back off...  Read More

So my wife any I were just about ready to get rid of our Mazda 5 because of how bad it is in the winter; we ----ed it up and spend $800 for tires and rims from Tire Rack - INCREDIBLE!!! We were told 6-8 days and they came in 2 DAYS, mounted, balanced, and even had stickers saying what side to put the tires on. I am a decent mechanic and I think those silly...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

I just purchased my second set of WS70's. I had WS60's previously which were also a very good tire, but I noticed that the new WS70's are much quieter than the 60's and they handle better. We just had a sleet/snow storm here in Louisville, Kentucky so I took the car out for a ride on the backroads to get a feel for acceleration and braking traction and found...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

These tires rock! Buy them! Steering is softer, handling is softer, and tire noise is louder. The tires provide excellent feel even in the dry. Tire noise on the highway just means I have to turn the radio up! These are amazing tires in wet/snow/ice.   Read More

Didn't rate any 10s - but the tires are way better than the OEM that came on the car from the factory in snow.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS60

My actual vehicle is a AMC Eagle but it was not listed. I plow snow with this car as well as use it to commute to work. My first set of winter tires were Blizzak WS15s ( I was able to get 25000 winter miles out of them ) and as good as they were the Winter Duelers are that much better. I can drive 15-20 mph faster on snow and packed snow then my summer tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

The greatest upgrade for a car in winter, period. For the longest time I swore by ultra high performance all-season tires, and simply accepted the sliding, and fishtailing as part of normal operation in winter. I was convinced I needed an AWD vehicle to brave the heavier snow. Getting these tires however has completely changed my opinion on it however.The...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak LM-60

I have this tire for only 600 miles. However, I live in Colorado, so we get different weather now in November. When I installed this tire temperature was in 60's. There is no doubt this tire is made for strictly winter conditions. It is soft on dry, steering response is much worse then with all-season tires, not to mention Michelin PSS I put in garage until...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

Excellent winter tire; probably the best you can get in the price range. Worked very well in Germany, we'll see how they handle a Colorado winter   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

Last winter I was using Bridgestone Insignia 200 all-season tires. They were OK with 150# ballast in the trunk but ice was still very difficult to manage.I decided to try the Blazzak this season since the all-seasons were about half worn down. On snow pack roads these tires feel as if I am on a dirt road in summer! On ice, well that's ice but you do have...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

We got the Bridgestone DMV1 tires installed yesterday. We live on a gravel road. It's a mile and half to our home from the highway. It was snow packed on the way home yesterday we took our Astro out for a test drive on the snow pack and down some six inch deep snow so we could test them out. My 11 yr old son exclaimed These tires are awesome! I couldn't...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak W965

Best winter tires apart from studded. I live in Michigan and drove home to New Brunswick Canada (20 hours) every holiday season so there is loads of snow to get through and these allow my little car to get there safely and comfortably.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

Two New England winter storms thus far on these tires. No issues, I've made it to work and home (+) to do usual errands without any loss of traction or lack of confidence with grip. The true confidence (to me) is that I can usually get when I want to go, but with snow and ice on the road having the confidence with STOPPING is the thing. I travel mostly...  Read More
