Not the best quality, but generally not bad.

These Bridgestone Blizzak got me completely. You leave the tire shop in these slippers and swam down the road. 205/55 R16 sold on ebay, because they did not fit in size due to the square profile and did not even think about buying the same ones anymore.

  • After 7 years of using Bridgestone Blizzak VRX, first to Focus 185/70 R14, and then to Lada Vesta 205/55 R16, I am changing my opinion on these tires. The only advantage: quiet.
  • And yet, these are not winter tires, but such solid slippers that you wear only in winter and you don’t go anywhere in them. Riding on these tires is good only in sub-zero temperatures in Hong Kong on asphalt. The tires are "square", i. E. they do not have rounded edges. In any rut, the tire does not have full contact with the road. And the most annoying thing about these tires: they roll on the road. It's so infuriating that you just can't drive smoothly on the road. The car shakes all the time. If the temperature approaches 0, then you ride like chewing gum. And if it's 10 or more, then that's it - taxi constantly and catch the car. When advancing trucks, the car winds along all lanes. I don’t know for which Japanese these slippers are expensively designed, but I personally tied up with Bridgestone. As if for 7 years of use, it's enough for me. These slippers are bought for wide cars, some BMW, in size 225 and wider, and ride around Hong Kong. On ice, these tires do not slow down. Ice on the road. You are at a traffic light. You start moving along with everyone, but there will always be an eccentric who decides to let someone pass a non-left turn, and everyone starts to stop, but . you can’t stop even at the speed of a pedestrian, the car rolls on. (Once near the house I almost caught up with the Mercedes S-class, there was very little left to the bumper. ) Basically no wear resistance. If you drive very, very carefully, then everything seems to be fine. But even with such a ride, the rubber manages to wear out always and everywhere. If you drive it actively, then the wear of the lamellas is immediately noticeable. You don’t even notice the wear of these, you feel it every time you press the gas pedal. With any acceleration, you understand that this rubber is erased. It's just annoying.

I have been buying this tire model for many years from the date of the first release and I am not going to change to another model. Sufficiently balanced properties when driving on snow, on ice, and in winter water-snow porridge. You feel confident behind the wheel, in general, you can predict behavior on any surface in advance. I advise you to buy. Although if you want even quieter tires, you can choose the next generation of the same tires called Blizzak Ice, which have even better consumer…

  • One of the really sticky studless tires. Bridgestone is the inventor of Velcro winter tires and invests heavily in the development of new tires.
  • Well, not exactly quiet, but compared to studded tires it will be quieter. Made in 2022. But Japanese ones can hardly be bought on the 2022 market, at best Slovakia.

Excellent quality, absolutely not expected for such a price.

I took a bu with a balance of 70%. Rolled it out for 2 seasons, driving 20-25tk. Rubber is good, the first experience on the clutch. She's downright soft. More for careful drivers

  • Stable behavior, good water evacuation, cornering confidence
  • Not a great resource

A valuable purchase, some advantages!

Has pros: It rows well in snow, slush. There were no problems on the track at speeds of 160+. Not helpless on ice (for Velcro). Its cons: Like any Bridge, it is harsh, but for my taste it is better than soft, like Michelin jelly.

Great product, best quality.

The first clutches, before that all the spikes. And I think that I will no longer have spikes, the impressions of the friction clutch are very positive. Very quiet, like summer, soft, on rolled snow, ice - it behaves no worse than spikes. Highway every weekend, city every day. Region - Hong Kong, winter is mild.

A valuable purchase, some advantages!

I bought in the amount of 195 \ 65 \ 15r for 124mers. Ride 2 seasons from Hong Kong to St. Petersburg. Happy with the rubber. There's also a third season. There are no bumps or hernias. Rubber class! Pros below: Soft but quite durable. With snow rolling and fresh snow behaves confidently. Not noisy. When thawed, it does not melt before our eyes. Got cons: On ice, there is a long braking distance, but for rubber without spikes, this is normal and the car is not easy!

Here comes my fourth winter with them. They are great in the snow and very good on dry cold roads. The level of wear is excellent - to be honest, I expect to ride them next winter. This tire model is very quiet, with low rolling resistance and very good handling. Bridgestone's biggest advantage is durability, and I've seen that before.

Disgusting quality, impossible to use.

Concluded dear friends! That these tires are suitable for dry, snowless roads. And God forbid on the road wakes sleet or even better ICE! Got pros: The brand, maybe the price, it's so soft in dry weather. I was satisfied and also bought a kit for my father's car Some cons: It snowed in Hong Kong. I left the yard and I skidded in earnest! I thought I hadn't woken up yet! Then a few more times!

I am delighted, the product is really worthy.

Try it, it's up to you. I won’t buy rubber with nails anymore, I drive a torsen all-wheel drive, so it’s hard to judge a mono-drive in terms of control and acceleration. Braking, in my opinion, is the same as with bolts, although I didn’t stop on an ice floe, but you can do something wrong with a fool. Good luck and follow the speed limit.

As such, there are no disadvantages, it is convenient to use.

If you want to drive quietly, quickly and confidently in winter, this is your choice. As for me, I will change them for others. It's hard to change tires so often. Got pros: Excellent drzhit road, perfectly rowing in deep snow. In extreme situations copes with 5+ With its cons: From the side of the car, it looks like a deflated one (pot-bellied side). Enough for 2.5 seasons. Half the season already dokatat cautiously.

Everything in the purchase suits, a very necessary product.

What you need for hassle-free travel in the cold weather. While I wouldn't count on non-studding to solve all of urban winter's woes, the VRH makes it through with minimal stress. I feel safe and secure riding my BMW over fresh snow, on ice, and on asphalt with puddles. The wheels are a perfect fit, and the car looks hot. Even though the path to spring is beginning to resemble a washboard, the cabin provides a quiet and comfortable trip.

The price/quality ratio is great, I will buy again.

Different pros: Excellent paddling in the snow On asphalt, directional stability is very even Predictably rides in a box on ice, rolled snow Cons: Rather nitpicking: thin bead without cord, not worth cutting through, expensive to repair If it is clogged with snow, then it does not slow down on ice at all, but this is not a spike; )

Not perfect quality, there is a small defect.

On the past cars were vrx made in Japan, now 2022, to be honest, heaven and earth. After two winters, I dismantled the wheel, inside the top layer of rubber turned out to be all cracked, I didn’t drive on flat ones, storage on disks. The last time I bought a 2022 g. O

A good product, I advise you to try it.

I have been operating since the beginning of November in the city. Completely satisfied. Regarding the softness of the composition of the rubber - I ran the sidewall onto the end of the curb (did not calculate the turning radius), the disk slightly shook - the rubber is alive and well. Another small note. Compared to the spikes, there is a complete lack of worries about the fate of the spikes)) you can safely press the slipper to the floor until the anti-bux is activated)) and also turn the…

  • Compared to noisy spikes, it's just a song. Any surface is held with dignity. I drove on snow and on ice and on asphalt. On ice, of course, it breaks into axle boxes if you press the gas or brake uncontrollably, but everything is expected and predictable.

A good product, but having its own defects.

I gave my last money. I don't regret it. Price quality. Before that, there was a Nokia hakapelita - spike 14 "175/65 and even earlier Yokohama - Velcro 14" 175/65. In my opinion, on spikes, the braking distance is long - this is on wet pavement, and shorter on Velcro. I bought Velcro breeches because I rarely have to leave the city. Pros below: 175/65, 14" I give a description bought on 12/13/2022. We had rain slowly turning into snow. About 0 C, +/-1 C. On the morning of 12/14/2022 there was…
