Bridgestone’s Blizzak Winter Tyre Bags Multiple Awards In Europe

Bridgestone’s Blizzak LM005, the company’s flagship winter tyre, has emerged as the winner in multiple European winter tyre tests.

Among the awards received, German publications Auto Motor Sport and Auto-Zeitung, and UK-based magazine Auto Express have recognised the Bridgestone Blizzak LM005 for its efficiency on snow and wet conditions.

The Bridgestone Blizzak LM005 sized 195/55 R16 87H emerged at the top of the scoreboards in Auto Motor Sport’s tests ahead of nine other winter tyres. The ‘very safe all-rounder in winter’, as the publication mentioned, was given an overall rating of ‘very good’.

 The Bridgestone Blizzak LM005 sized 235/55R18 was also named the winner ahead of 10 other brands in Auto-Zeitung’s winter test. The tyre secured top ratings in ‘wet’ and clinched the top two positions in ‘dry’.

 The tyre sized 225/45R17 dominated seven of 11 performance tests at the Auto Express competition. Securing the ‘best’ ranking for snow-braking, wet-braking, wet-handling, lateral grip wet, dry-braking, dry-handling and rolling resistance, the Bridgestone Blizzak LM005 was labelled as the clear choice for dark days in winter.

 Steven De Bock, VP Consumer Replacement and OE at Bridgestone, EMIA, said,  “It’s fantastic to once again receive great recognition for the Bridgestone Blizzak LM005; we launched the tyre in 2019 and it continues to be best-in-class for Europe’s leading testers. My Bridgestone colleagues created a tyre that time and time again has been proven to deliver exceptional control, safety and peace of mind in the wet, snow and ice.” (TT)
