The Bridgestone Blizzak LM001-EVO winter tyre is a new, improved version of the well-known and well appreciated Blizzak LM001 model. The prototype has become very popular because its excellent performance parameters, confirmed by the results of tests carried out by independent automotive magazines.
The Bridgestone Blizzak LM001-EVO offers even better performance, with significantly improved safety and driving comfort. Directional tread is the most popular solution used on winter models because it helps to efficiently remove water from the front of tyres.
To increase driving stability and grip, the tread of the LM001-EVO has been bolstered with optimised transverse channels that facilitate driving on roads covered with snow and water. This is especially important during the autumn and winter, when the weather changes rapidly and drivers must be prepared for different situations. The wide grooves that evacuate water also reduce the risk of aquaplaning, protecting the driver against losing control over the vehicle.
The design of the tyre rib has also been improved in order to enhance manoeuvrability and to increase the contact area of the tyre, which directly reduces braking distances. The rubber compound used in this model consists of high quality compounds which not only extend the life of the product, but also ensure stable performance in all weather conditions, even at very low temperatures.
