Bridgestone Blizzak tires are amazing! If you are in a snowy area and are looking for some good snow tires, look no further. My last few winters were spent in Alaska, and those years we had the snowiest winter on record and the longest winter on record, which meant I got some great use from these tires! We put them on both our Chevy Malibu and our Toyota Corolla and both cars performed extremely well. These tires have a different type of tread and are manufactured differently than other tires, so they actually grip the road, even when it is covered with snow and ice. You can actually feel it gripping as you are driving sometimes. We lived around some big hills, and there were some areas where we had to stop for a stop sign at a bad spot, making it almost impossible to get your car to grip the snow and actually be able to turn up the hill. I saw many cars stuck in this location, and without our blizzaks, we struggled too. But once those tires were on, we made it without issue. With all snow tires, you still need to drive carefully, but with these, even at times we did slide, it was a small slide and we were able to quickly correct it and keep moving forward. The downside of these tires is that they don't do well in warm weather. So, if you are in an area with a little snow, then it warms up to 50, then snows a little more, these probably aren't the tires for you. The tread gets more worn from the heat. But, they do last well. Ours have been used for over 12 months during their life, and still have another few winters left in them!
