Bridgestone Blizzak LM-80 EVO235/55R17
The Blizzak LM-80 EVO is Bridgestone’s Light Truck/SUV Performance Winter / Snow tire developed for crossover and SUV drivers that want to retain their vehicle’s sporty appearance, even through winter. Available in low profile tire sizes appropriate for large diameter wheels, Blizzak LM-80 EVO tires are designed to provide wintertime traction on cold, dry, wet and snow-covered roads.
Blizzak LM-80 EVO tires feature an advanced winter tread compound that remains pliable in cold temperatures to enhance traction in snow and on ice. This compound is molded into a directional tread design featuring firm shoulder blocks flanking independent intermediate blocks and a continuous central rib to aid steering response and straight-line stability. High volume circumferential and transverse grooves permit water and slush to flow from under the contact patch, as well as enhance grip on loose snow. Blizzak LM-80 EVO tires feature the Lamellen “edge effect” where multiple designs of thinner, stiffer multidirectional sipes in the tread blocks provide biting edges to help grip snow and enhance winter traction.
The tire’s internal structure includes twin steel belts reinforced by spirally wrapped nylon to blend high-speed durability with uniform ride quality. Blizzak LM-80 EVO winter / snow tires meet the industry’s severe snow service requirements and are branded with the three-peak mountain snowflake symbol (3PMSF).
