Bridgestone launches next-gen Blizzak DM-V2 winter tire

By ,

Bridgestone today announced the Blizzak DM-V2, the company’s newest winter tire for CUVs, SUVs, and pickup trucks. 

Featuring an all-new tread pattern and a next-generation compound, the Blizzak DM-V2 gives drivers more control when driving in ice, snow, slush, and other winter conditions. 

The list of improvements over the Blizzak DM-V1 include:
 

  • Improved performance on ice: The Blizzak DM-V2 tire is designed with a next-generation Multi-Cell compound that dispels water from the surface of the ice. This combats slippage and improves braking.
  • Increased traction: The tire’s newly designed tread pattern has 15% more block edges, increasing its snow-shearing force and enabling it to grip the road better in snow and slush.
  • Better handling: The enhanced contact patch creates a uniform dispersion of pressure where the tire meets the road. This gives the Blizzak DM-V2 improved grip on ice and better overall stability.

“We’ve taken Bridgestone’s best winter tire and made it even better,” said Justin Hayes, Product Manager, Bridgestone Americas. “Drivers can have peace of mind knowing that the Blizzak DM-V2 tire is engineered with special technology that gives them impressive control when driving in every winter condition.”

The new Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2 will be available for purchase starting in July.
