Strengths and weaknesses?
Excellent, Blizzak-quality winter, snow and ice traction.
May be a slightly harsher tire than alternatives within the SUV/Truck Winter/Snow tire category. Ride quality and road noise, for example, are reportedly less ideal with the Blizzak W965 than the
Blizzak DM-V1. No surprise there given the Blizzak W965 load carrying capacity. We think that's a small, acceptable trade-off for the unique capability (within the snow/winter tire arena).
How does the Blizzak W965 compare?
Despite the slightly lesser comfort characteristics, the Blizzak W965 still slots in just behind the Blizzak DM-V1 according to user feedback.
Among the snow tire brands and options, the Bridgestone Blizzak line is perhaps the most accomplished, most proven, and most trusted. All Blizzak tire models provide unimpeachable snow/winter performance, and the Blizzak W965 is no exception.
Anything else to know?
Need winter capabilty and load carrying capacity? Can't beat the Blizzak W965. Somewhat limited 16" and 17" sizes are available.
Install in sets of four only, or you'll be dealing with a potentially hazardous handling imbalance.
