Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2

bought these tires for my daughters car and couldn't be happier they are not like the old blizzaks they are very stable no mush and I feel confident that she can get out of just about anything a new York winter can throw at her.   Read More

Best snow tires for winter driving : Bridgestone versus Michelin.

The Winter of 2017/2018 has been one for the record books.  Much of the country has had to deal with severe cold temperatures and record breaking snowfalls.   Some of the sub-zero cold temperatures that much of the country experienced were the coldest recorded in over a decade.  Not long before I wrote this blog, I awoke to a morning of negative 14 degrees...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2

I have used Blizzak¿s for years on a variety of vehicles. These tires on my 2008 Volvo XC90 V8 Sport are outstanding. I live in upstate NY and we get hit hard with lake effect snow. I can drive through 6¿ or more of snow with no problem. It turns the Volvo into a tank that feels like it can go through anything. I also have used Blizzaks on my BMW 3 series,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

Excellent winter tires with less noise than the GY F1 A/S that came withe the car.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2

I bought these tires 5 years ago and I just bought them again. They have been the champions of 4 winters on my 2010 Honda CRV. I have been through lots of light and medium snow and some deep snow. When I'm driving through a few inches of snow with these, it feels like I'm driving on pavement. They handle ice ok but not great. But no tires handle ice great. I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG20

Good value for the price, but I have been a little under-whelmed by the traction on wet and dry roads in the cold without actual snow coverage. On previous cars I have used Michelin X-Ice and Bridgestone Blizzak winter tires, which cost a little more than these Yokos, but do seem to deliver a bit better performance in those conditions.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak LM-80

These Blizzaks are the third set I have owned for my SUV¿s. I like driving on the spirited side since I like buying sporty vehicles. My first set was for my 2010 Acura MDX. The traction on ice and snow was amazing. I ran these for 4 years without an issue. Lots of tread left when I sold them. Currently I am impressed with the performance of these tires on my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

Living in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia and driving over the mountain daily can provide dramatic and sudden changes in road conditions. Rain to ice to snow and back again within a mile as you top the mountain. Purchased for wife's car in Jan. Very impressed with ability in snow and rain. No good test on ice yet. Leaving on year round so will be able to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2

Without these tires, my SRT8 Grand Cherokee would be nearly worthless to drive in the winter here near Reno, where I live in the mountains between Reno and Lake Tahoe. We have lots of ice and heavy wet snow at 6000' of elevation, which makes for interesting driving conditions at times. These tires really work with 90% horsepower to the rear tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

I purchased this tire after the previous Kumho tires had worn completely and had caused ride comfort to be something to be desired for after switching from a soft winter tire set. To be fair the Kumho had lasted about 40k miles.Initial thoughts about the Pirelli All Season Plus is that they ride comfortably, are quiet, provide adequate traction, do not...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

The pros : great for traction in deep snow, light snow, slushy roads The Cons : Lacks traction when turning corners, Traction on icy roads was just ok, Tread wears down faster then competitor winter tires, Price is highThe Outcome : Overall its a great winter tire. It has pros and con just like all tires. I have used the Toyo GSi 5 , Continental extreme...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak LM001

I drive frequently from the NYC area to northern VT in the winter, often in snowstorms. That sometimes means going 150 miles in the rain, 100 miles on black ice and 100 miles in snow. These tires are great in each condition. I drive a 2011 WRX and with these tires and AWD, I can confidently pass when the left lane is super sketchy, zoom up hills on mountain...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L 422 Ecopia

I have never been a fan of Bridgestone tires. They Chop up all the time and never provided the best wear like Michelin, Pirelli and Dunlop. My Brother works for Bridgestone and I decided to try them out on my X5. I immediately noticed how smooth and quiet they are on my BMW X5 3.0l X-drive with adaptive drive, rear damper load level suspension and active...  Read More

You Can Run But You Can't Hide From Mother Nature

Do you need to run winter / snow tires? If you're in a region that normally averages over a foot of snow or your vehicle comes equipped with summer tires from the factory, you should strongly consider installing winter tires. Dedicated snow tires will enhance an all-wheel drive vehicle's winter capability, make an intrinsically "bad-in-snow" car better and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS60

I had high hopes and I'm very disappointed.They are pretty good in light snow, I have not had the occasion to try on deep snow or ice. They are ok on dry road but they are DANGEROUS on wet road. I have had several close calls on wet roads because they won't break, lock and slide (I don't have ABS). I drive with Goodyear GT Eagle the rest of the year which...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

These are summer tires, replacing original Conti ProContact (42K mi). At half the price of Conti/Michelin, etc etc, I must say I am extremely pleased with their performance. I had also considered the BFG g-Force A/S but after talking to Bart at TireRack, he said that he felt the non-directional tread pattern enabled diagonal rotation, whereas the BFG would...  Read More
