This is the only Blizzak tire I haven't liked. Poor traction in slush and snow! I live on a hill and we get stuck in 1" of fresh snow. The traction is excellent on hard packed snow though. My main concern is on dry pavement as these are very UNSAFE a with my van. There is significant overstever which makes the van hard to control at times. I have owned 4 or 5 sets of Blizzaks and purchased another set for my new 2015 Traverse that have all been excellent. Avoid these tires

Decent all round winter tire. Your options for a LOAD E rated tires are limited. My only complaint is they are terrible in muddy conditions. Where I live it can go from 20cm of snow one week to rain and mud the next. I regularly cut wood and that requires me to go off road, they turn into slicks in muddy conditions.

I purchased a set of blizzak w965 studless winter tires (LT 235-85-16) for my 1997 chevy k2500, for snow plowing. I have used them for two years. They are excellent on dry, or wet pavement, as they hug the road nicely, in a predictable manner. For snow, they are good mostly on packed, not heavy fresh snow, as the blocks are too close to each other. On shear ice they perform honestly, for a non studed tire. On gravel, they handle very well, even at higher speeds, but as other reviewers mentio, they pickup every little rock they can, and hold them pretty good! On mud, they are very poor, slippery and clug up right away. Not a deep bush tire. Finally, on rough ice, found on country roads, they are not inspiring any confidence after you slip in curve and hit the ditch with no warning. I do not reccomend this tire if you are about to hit the high way on a snow storm. The tread pattern does not allow for enough traction, and will mostly float. Excellent for all around use in the city. Overall very quiet for a winter tire. I have to mention that the size I purchased is not the good one for this truck. Iy should be LT245-75-16. I found out that instead of getting better mileage, the actually cost at least 30 per cent more! My next set of winter tires will be the BF Goodrich Commercial Traction TA, LT rated as well.

I've never posted to any board before. After spending this winter on my new Blizzaks mounted on a 4cyl 2006 Honda Accord, I just had to write. THESE ARE TERRIFIC TIRES!.. I just could not believe how great they were on ice and snow in Boulder Colorado
