Initial Review, 30,000 Miles on Tires
February 01, 2013

I running the Blizzak DM-V1 on a 2011 AWD V6 Toyota Highlander and have for four years, same set of tires (about 3,500 miles a season). They have been and continue to be unbelieve in snow, ice, slush and wet payment and perform well even when -15 degrees. Case in point, 13" snowfall in St. Paul on 12/9/2012. Out running errand and came upon a Ford Superduty snowplow stuck in a business parking lot. I offer to pull him out...he was skecptical and didn't even get out of the truck to hook up. I eased off the brake and applied a little power and pulled him out. He then jumped out of the cab and ran back to ask my about my Highlander...I gave 90% credit to the Blizzaks. Yes, they are a little noisy, but when the going gets slick, these things stick!
