Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I drove from Durham NH back to central Maine during the snowstorm last wed afternoon and had no problems with loss of traction on either interstate or secondary roads. I purchased the Tirerack recommended tire/wheel package and am completely satisfied. I had to pass many vehicles which came to complete stops on small hills(about 0.5mi long),probably using...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I bought these tires for my 2005 Ford Crown Victoria after several winters of getting stuck on a level surface with one inch on snow on it. This car is probably the worst possible vehicle to drive in winter conditions, so I thought it would be a good test vehicle for these tires. So far here in cleveland we have had rain, snow, ice, and slush. These tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Carving Edge

I can't contest for the mileage yet as I just purchased these less than 1000 miles ago. As for every other aspect of this tire,,,,,, WOW, I've owned winter specific tires in the past (Bridgestone's WS60, Firestone's and Dunlop's)The Bridgestone's were hands down a superior tire over the Dunlop's and Firestone's. But these Pirelli's have changed my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

I put these on just before the snow started,and have driven dry,wet,standing water,slush,warm snow packed,cold snow packed and icy. We made 6 200 mile trips in 10 days and they worked great in all of the conditions, except for the warm snow packed, about the only thing that would work in those conditions would be studs. As far as highway noise they are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

Switched from OE non-run-flat tire to the DriveGuard tire within the first 3,000 miles on vehicle in order to add the benefit of a run-flat capable tire. I did not notice any difference in ride, handling, traction or noise levels. It did add peace of mind while driving knowing that, in most instances of a flat tire, I would not have to worry about pulling...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

These tires are awesome! Like having 4 wheel drive. Last two winters were a nightmare with the factory tires. Upgraded to these with a set of rims on recommendation from a friend with a 3 Series, he loves 'em. Have driven in snow and in icy conditions, tried to make them lose traction, had to push it real hard to break them loose. He said they do wear very...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

Put these run flats on after I had put about 36000 on my OEM Continental tires that came with the car. Road noise was much better and handling was improved quite a bit. I do like the way my BMW rides on these. I would recommend getting a set!!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

10k on these tires and very happy. Quiet, smooth and MPG's improve over Bridgestone Serenity that were on car. This tire does display just a little groove following on local fwy but most tires do! sharp impacts seem a bit harsh but it may be the car. Buy these tires!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS60

This is my first set of snow tires. I've always used all season tires, but never again. I put them on in November. I was a little worried that they would be rough or loud on dry pavement, but they are nice and quiet. Of course handling isn't as good as normal summer tires on dry pavement, but the compromise is acceptable. Snow is where these tires are worth...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

The tires are truly a very good tire. That was one of the biggest reasons that I got the Blizzak WS70 and the price was extremely affordable. The reviews compared to other tires were not even close to these brand for the winter. And other people and reviews I read I really didn't hear anything bad about them except for that I would be extremely happy with...  Read More
