The Bridgestone Blizzak LM-18 tire is a performance winter tire that combines good snow and ice traction with winter performance handling for high speeds. The Blizzak LM-18 features a high silica content tread compound molded into a directional tread design to enhance hydroplaning resistance on wet and slush-covered roads.
The Bridgestone Blizzak LM-18 tire features Bridgestone's patented “edge effect” (multiple biting edges in the tread blocks to help grip snow and ice) which enhances winter traction. The Blizzak LM-18 winter tire’s overall combination of capabilities is made possible by Bridgestone’s UNI-T technology. According to Bridgestone, UNI-T combines innovative tire design, construction and tread compounds to help maximize the tire’s performance, ride quality and wear while providing traction in winter. The Blizzak LM-18 winter tire meets the industry’s severe snow service requirements and has the mountain snowflake symbol on the sidewall.
