Bridgestone Blizzak LM-60
Follow-Up Review: 10,000 miles on tires

This is my second snow season on these tires, and am happy with them regarding a performance winter tire. I estimate I'll get another 2 seasons out of them, with about 7500 mi to 8500 per season. I've had a chance to use them in a variety of winter conditions. I do think the LMs have better snow and slush traction than the previous M3s I had, but they are a little softer in the handling department than the Dunlops. Since I was looking for better snow traction, without stepping up to a studless snow, the LMs work well.

I just had a chance to test the tire in winter conditions given the mid atlantic blizzard we just experienced. Traction in snow and slush is very good. Ice traction is not as good, but this is to be expected with a performance winter tire. Driving around in the worst of the conditions was not a problem, but as the snow piles up ground clearance becomes the issue. Performance in the dry and wet is average for a performance winter. My previous tires were Dunlop Wintersport M3s, and the LM 60s are comparable in performance, with a slight dry handling and steering responsiveness going to the M3s.

Overall, if the majority of your winter driving is on cold dry and cold wet roads, but you want additional traction over an all season in snow/slush, the LM 60s are a very good choice.
