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.

Drove from Montreal to Florida and back with the DM-V2. Straight and true on the highway even for a high profile tire. Noise was minimal, wear as well even in high Florida temperature. Confident in snow. OK in slush but as good as any other tires. Like them better than my x-ice xi2. Recommend.

These are great winter tires for an SUV. The ride and handling are great. Of course, being a winter tire, they are a bit louder than a summer. Compared to other winter tires, these are on the quieter side. Great tire overall! I cant comment to much on treadwear as they are still fairly new.

Blizzaks are this Alaskan's favorite tire. I've driver 42 winters here and these are the best for ice, snow, slush, wet and dry winter roads. Better performance than studs, better than the French tire. They wear somewhat faster than summer/all season tires but I get about 50,000 miles from them by running them through the summer after the winter gripping compound has worn down. The pavement does not get hot here in summer so I get an extra 10,000 miles from them before getting to the 3/32nds "time to replace" wear bars.
