BFNT adds to Blizzak winter tire line

Oct. 27, 2004

Bridgestone Firestone North American Tire LLC´s (BFNT) newest members of the Bridgestone brand line of Blizzak winter tires are the Blizzak DM-Z3 and the Blizzak LM-25.

The Bridgestone Blizzak DM-Z3 handles ice and snow conditions thanks to the company´s Tube Multicell compound that cuts through thin layers of surface water. The 3D sipes enhance dry performance, while UNI-T technology combined with Silica helps keep traction strong in wet conditions.

The Bridgestone Blizzak LM-25, a directional, studless H- and V-speed rated winter tire, delivers snow and ice traction for high-performance vehicles. With its 3D sipes, the LM-25 provides dry performance, and the UNI-T technology provides well-balanced performance in wet conditions. Silica added to the tread further enhances winter and wet traction.

The Blizzak DM-Z3 is available in 13 sizes from 15 to 18 inches, and the Blizzak LM-25 is available now in 13 16- to 18-inch sizes, with two 19-inch sizes becoming available in November.
