Competitors

The Bridgestone Blizzak LM-005 has garnered notable recognition for its performance across multiple tests, presenting a mixed yet overall compelling case for its selection as a winter tyre. On the positive front, its prowess on wet surfaces is universally acclaimed; consistently offering short braking distances and high aquaplaning resistance, culminating in an excellent handling experience that sets it apart in wet conditions. Furthermore, it is praised for its fuel-efficient rolling resistance and low noise levels, aspects that contribute to an overall efficient and comfortable driving experience. The LM-005 also shows commendable performance on snow, being lauded for its agility and control, although its grip may not always match the absolute best in its category.


However, the tyre demonstrates potential drawbacks in certain areas. Its performance on dry roads, while still good, is noted for longer braking distances and less grip compared to some of its competitors. Snow performance, while generally positive, is pointed out to have room for improvement, especially in terms of handling and traction. Additionally, concerns have been raised regarding its durability, with tests indicating lower predicted mileage and higher wear than some rivals, possibly due to its heavier weight and elevated rolling resistance in certain dimensions.


Despite these criticisms, the Bridgestone Blizzak LM-005's stand-out wet performance, coupled with its commendable snow aptitude and low noise, solidify its standing as a strong contender in the winter tyre market. Its issues, notably its performance on dry tarmac and potential longevity concerns, don't overshadow its successes but rather serve as considerations for prospective buyers measuring their specific needs and driving conditions.

Ranked #2 of 7
In a highly competitive lineup, the Bridgestone Blizzak LM-005 achieved an impressive second place out of seven, earning a "Recommended" rating for its overall performance. This tire stood out notably for its exceptional performance in specific areas, including interior noise, snow braking, snow traction, and excelling in wet circle cornering. Since its launch in 2019, the Blizzak LM-005 has consistently remained at the forefront, distinguished as the only tire in its category to receive an A grade for wet grip on debut, a distinction it maintained in this comparison. Particularly dominant in snow conditions, it breezed through both snow tests with a considerable margin. However, it found the wet conditions more challenging, managing a fourth-place in the wet tests, and had some difficulty in deep water situations indicative of aquaplaning scenarios. It also delivered commendable performance in wet handling, offering a secure and safe driving experience. While it didn't match the sharpness of its main rival, the Continental, in dry conditions and was somewhat limited by front grip, it stayed competitive, also showcasing among the best results in fuel economy.
