Bridgestone Run-Flat Winter Tires Designed for Specific Vehicles

Monday, August 23, 2010 by Chad Hocker
Many of the run-flat tires on cars today are summer-only tires that are not designed for cold climate use (an area that sees consistent temperatures below 40 degrees).

The solution to the summer run-flat tire is simply...a winter run-flat tire.
  • Bridgestone Blizzak LM-50 RFT  (exclusively designed for Toyota Seinna with 225/60R17 run-flat tires)
  • Bridgestone Blizzak MZ-03 RFT (exclusively designed for Lexus SC430 with 245/40R18 run-flat tires)
  • Bridgestone Blizzak LM-25 RFT (exclusively designed for BMW 6 Series with 245/50R17 run-flat tires, BMW 6 Series with 245/24R18 run-flat tires, Mazda MX-5 Miata with 205/45R17 run-flat tires)
  • Bridgestone Blizzak LM-60 RFT (exclusively designed for MINI Cooper with 195/55R16 run-flat tires, Mazda MX-5 Miata with 205/45R17 run-flat tires, Lexus IS with 225/40R18 (front) and 255/40R18 (rear) run-flat tires, BMW X5 & X6 with 225/55R18 run-flat tires)
  • Bridgestone Blizzak LM-25 4X4 RFT (exclusively designed for BMW X5 with 255/55R18 or 255/50R19 run-flat tires, Mercedes-Benz ML or R with 255/50R19 run-flat tires, Toyota RAV4 with 235/55R18 run-flat tires)

The LM-25 4x4 RFT from Bridgestone is absolutely the best winter tire I have ever driven on. Exceptional ice and snow traction and great cold weather bare pavement performance. Made the mistake of trying Pirelli Scorpion Ice and Snow last winter. They weren't exactly confidence inspiring. The Bridgestone's on my X5 are awesome. My X5 drives better in snow than my Land Rover with A/T tires w/ the snowflake rating.

Looking for winter tires for my 2003 lexus sc430 ... I have rims from my old snow tires.

Laura,
Two very popular options have been the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4 and the Dunlop Winter Sport.
