Bridgestone Blizzak WS60
Follow-Up Review: 2,120 miles on tires
February 25, 2010
Came home today in 6+ of wet snow. Again these tires are amazing plowed through the heavy snow like a little tank on tracks. The stopping was excellent and climbed up a fairly steep paved street where others where stuck and I just drove right on by them all.
Initial Review: 800 miles on tires

These tires are AMAZING. I got caught in an ice storm the road was a sheet of ice, uphill rain coming down and freezing on the roadway. Cars off the road, others stuck on the hill. I walked right up that hill around a Esclade that was sideways on the hill. Without spinning a wheel. Last night I got stuck in a heavy snow storm Christmas night over the RT 52 mountain from Ellenville NY. About 4 of fresh snow on top of freezing rain. The Blizzak's performance is amazing. There was no one on the road. I stopped in the middle of the steepest part of the mountain and the car started without even spinning a wheel. When I came down the other side the car traced perfectly no sliding or slipping at all. I hard braked it from about 35 MPH, the anti-locks kicked in and came to a perfect straight stop. The tires are perfect for my car. I can not make any comments as to tire wear as I only have about 800 miles on this set of tire. I researched a bunch of tires here and made an educated decision base on the previous reviews of this tire. It is like being able to test drive the tires before you buy them. Thanks again Tirerack for a great price and the research area on this website.
