I recently switched from my Kumho summer tires to my Blizzaks on my 2008 BMW M3. I could not be more impressed by the performance of these tires! It took my m3 from a helpless baby to what could be mistaken as an AWD to unknowing spectators. Takes on steep, snowy driveways like nobodies business. Thoroughly enjoy having my parking spot at the TOP of the driveway back again. Also, with these tires this car is unbelievably fun to whip nuts in parking lots with! People think I'm crazy for driving my car in the winter, but with the fun these tires let me have I wouldn't have it any other way. Thank you Bridgestone, you truly improved my winter by 100%.
