Latest Tyre Test Results

2023 Studless Friction Winter Tyre Test - 5th of 8 tyres

  • Overall - The Japanese Bridgestone is one of the few winter tires with an asymmetric pattern, marked with an inside/outside instead of rolling direction. This favors cornering but results in poorer water properties.

    The Blizzak Ice is also one of the softest tires (the rubber's "Shore value" is a low 49). This provides good cornering grip on snow and ice, but it is not as easily controlled at the grip limit on snow as the best ones. Its braking performance on winter surfaces is average.

    The soft rubber bites well when braking on dry asphalt and has low road noise. However, it lacks stability in evasive maneuvers on dry roads, and its wet grip is one of the worst in the group.

    Without a clear area of expertise, Bridgestone places a bit behind the top contenders.

Top 3 Bridgestone Blizzak Ice Reviews

Given 88% while driving a BMW 120d (205/55 R16) on mostly country roads for 25,000 average miles
I live in the Baltic state. And we have snowy and icy winters. If you drive carefully, the tyres are very good for and RWD car and you don’t get stuck on snow or ice. Sometimes they feel a little soft and you have to correct your driving direction on the motorways. But not a big issue. They are nordic winter tyres after all. Would recommend, especially for a rear wheel drive cars in countries with lots of snow and ice. And the wear of the tyre is normal.

Some of the best Bridgestone Blizzak Ice winter tires, like many of the Blizzak VRX series. Very strong sidewall. Tread 8.5 mm. They behave very confidently on ice.
