Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1 review
What is it?
The Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1 is a winter/snow tire developed for pickups, crossovers and SUV's The Blizzak DM-V1 is designed with a focus on snow and ice traction and braking, as well as wet road handling and hydroplaning resistance.
Strengths and weaknesses?
Typically awesome Blizzak performance in snow, ice, and wet conditions. Deep and light snow traction in particular is impeccable.
No weaknesses for the intended application.
How does the Blizzak DM-V1 compare?
According to users, the Blizzak DM-V1 is the top ranked tire in the SUV/Truck Winter/Snow tire category. Excellent wintertime capability, strong comfort characteristics, no weaknesses.
Anything else to know?
The Blizzak DM-V1 is the premier, and most tried and tested winter/snow tire in the category. Highly recommended.
The Bridgestone Blizzak W965, and Firestone Winterforce LT (a studdable snow tire) are worth considering as well. The newer Michelin Latitude X-Ice Xi2 is also a fair fight against the Blizzak, and may be the most well-rounded studless ice & snow tire for SUV's, crossovers, and light trucks.
Install in sets of four only, or you'll be dealing with a potentially hazardous handling imbalance.
