Does This Tire Fit?

The Blizzak DM-V2 is Bridgestone's Light Truck/SUV Studless Ice & Snow winter tire developed for the drivers of pickup, crossover and sport utility vehicles looking for enhanced grip in slush, snow and on ice. Designed with a focus on ice traction and braking, as well as wet road handling and hydroplaning resistance, the Blizzak DM-V2 offers wintertime driving competence.

Blizzak DM-V2 tires use Bridgestone's adaptive NanoPro Tech Multicell compound that features a water-loving hydrophilic coating and microscopic bite particles. The Multicell compound remains flexible in below-freezing conditions, wicks water off packed snow and ice while the bite particles deliver more grip and improve braking on glare ice. This compound is molded into a directional tread design featuring 15% more block edges (than the Blizzak DM-V1 it replaces) where circumferential and lateral grooves help channel water, slush and snow away from the contact area for added traction while 3D zigzag sipes increase the number of snow biting edges.

The Blizzak DM-V2 radial meets the industry's severe snow service requirements and is branded with the mountain/snowflake symbol.

NOTE:The first 55% of the Blizzak DM-V2's tread depth features the NanoPro Tech Multicell Compound while the remaining 45% features a standard winter tire compound. When the Blizzak DM-V2 is approximately 50 percent worn, a depth indicator molded into the tread design lets the driver know that the remaining tread is reaching the end of its ability to provide beneficial snow traction.

Install Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2 tires in sets of four only.

Due to the revolutionary traction capabilities of the Blizzak, Bridgestone recommends using them only in sets of four to provide the best handling characteristics and tire performance.

These are the best tires out there for winter driving. For drivers that drive sane that is. These tires will not handle great if you think bombing down the road 10 over the speed limit in the snow or rain at night is smart. Most of the reviews dissing these tires seem to be from drivers that think they are smarter than everyone and thus have no need to slow down for conditions. Cars can kill you and idiots that drive fast for conditions regardless of tires kill other people and themselves. Slow down in the rain. Slow down in the snow. Slow down at night. Use the best tires possible and you will get where you are going. To get the best out of these tires especially when new, air down the front 5 psi below the back. Or air up the back 5psi high. This works very well for minimizing that wishy washy feeling at higher speeds. These tires should only be used with lightweight vehicles too. For SUV's you really should be using the w965's a load E rated tire. For instance I would not use these on my suburban but would on my 1997 blazer and they work great.

I agree with some other reviewers who have stated that these tires do not perform well. The tires feel soft and do not inspire confidence in any driving situation. I wish that I had read more reviews before deciding to buy these tires based on their reputation alone. Worst winter tires I have ever owned and will be looking to sell these and purchase a different brand before the snow flies this coming winter.
