This consumer review stood out to me this week. The writer made a good decision last year and bought the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1 just in time for one of the worst winters in recent years.
"I bought these tires right before the winter and I am glad I did. We had a record breaking snow and my street does not get plowed until everyone else is already plowed. This is my first time owning a 4wd vehicle, so I can't speak from too much experience in that area. But my buddy couldn't get off of his street with his Dodge Ram 4wd after the second big storm. I got out with no problems at all with about 4 feet of snow on the ground. Once I got out of my driveway, the truck was unstoppable. I stopped on my street and opened my door and the snow fell into the truck. So it was above the rockers and I had no trouble getting out."

It's pretty remarkable how Bridgestone's Multicell Z compound and 3D Wash Board Z sipe technologies increase dry and snow performance on their latest Light Truck/SUV Studless Ice and Snow tire. Learn more about the Blizzak DM-V1.
