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.
Bridgestone Run-Flat Technology tyres let you keep on driving for more than 50 miles at 50 mph, in the event of a sudden loss of air pressure, as determined by vehicle test and/or ISO tests. Consult your vehicle owner’s manual for actual running distances for your vehicle.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
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.
