Bridgestone Blizzak LM-80 RFT225/65RF17
The Blizzak LM-80 RFT is Bridgestone’s Light Truck/SUV Performance Winter / Snow run-flat tire designed to provide temporary self-supporting run-flat mobility for the 2014 Nissan Rogue for a distance of 50 miles at up to 50 mph even after a puncture has allowed complete air pressure loss. Featuring Bridgestone 3G RFT Technology that offers almost the same riding comfort as conventional tires, Blizzak LM-80 RFT tires are designed to allow drivers to maintain their vehicle’s sporty appearance while providing wintertime traction on cold, dry, wet and snow-covered roads.

Blizzak LM-80 RFT tires feature a tread compound that remains pliable in cold temperatures to combine winter traction with run-flat durability. 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 grooves remove slush and water from the contact patch as well as enhance grip on loose snow. Blizzak LM-80 RFT tires feature the Lamellen “edge effect” where 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. The Blizzak LM-80 RFT’s structure has been specifically tuned for its intended vehicle and features Bridgestone Side Support Run-Flat technology reinforced sidewalls to support the vehicle after a puncture causes loss of air pressure.
Blizzak LM-80 RFT winter / snow tires meet the industry’s severe snow service requirements and are branded with the three-peak mountain snowflake symbol (3PMSF).
