Review on Bridgestone Blizzak Spike-02 SUV 225/60 R18 104T winter by Ingrid Jarunkova ᠌

Revainrating 3 out of 5

Not exactly what I wanted, but basically everything is fine.

Dunlops were not available in the necessary sizes despite being tested for six winters (perhaps due to geopolitics). The lack of height and tread density on the breeches does not bode well, but we shall see.

  • Made in Japan, so maybe the tires will last more than a year without splitting like haka. Wear resistance is another area in which Bridgestone excels. Unlike mud bighorns, they don't make a lot of noise.
  • When put next to the original Dunlop winter ices, blizzaks are nothing more than slicks on the road. Zero elevation and zero tread sparsity. From what I can see, though, that is now the standard for "suv" tires.
