The brand new Blizzak LM001 combines new innovations in tread and materials technology to deliver the safety and performance you need in today’s increasingly unpredictable world. Confidently hit the road in any winter weather: from sunny to snowy to everything in between.
BRAKING AND HANDLING ON SNOW 3D sipe application with new pattern design balance pattern stiffness without reducing sipe flexibility. High-volume slanted grooves create high snow-to-snow shear force for outstanding traction on snow-covered surfaces.
HANDLING, STABILITY AND CONTROL IN WET Rounded corner junctions improve flow of water and slush. Tapered horn lugs clear the patch area quickly, increasing road contact and control even further.
EXCELLENT WEAR RESISTANCE AND DURABLE PERFORMANCE NanoPro-Tech polymers assure an optimal silica distribution resulting in a flexible compound also in cold weather conditions, maintaining the best grip and contact with road over a wider range of temperatures.
The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.
Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.
The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.
With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.
Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.
Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.

16.05.2023fromRacer 1974 I went for the BMW approved (star marked) Blizzak and I’m very happy with the tyres. I’ve had Conti Winter Contact on previous cars and in regular use I would say the Blizzak is very comparable. The car retains decent steering feel and traction on wet and dry roads plus offers a far greater level of grip on snow/slush over a regular tyre. Ride comfort seems pretty much unchanged, as always with winters there is a little more noise but it’s slight and after 5 minutes you don’t notice! Fuel consumption does increase very slightly over the summer tyres BUT that could be down to the cold weather as much as the tyres!
11.05.2023fromSam Summers I bought these so that I wouldn't have any mishaps during the winter in my beloved car. I was worried that it would be a nightmare to drive in the snow due to being rear wheel drive and its power. I put these tyres on the front and different winter tyres on the rear and never had any problems at all - very surprised and impressed!
16.07.2022fromDonald Mitchell Fantastically reassuring tires in winter on wet roads, standing water, ice and snow. Really pleased with them
