Bridgestone Blizzak LM-18

The Blizzak LM-18 Performance Winter tire was developed to combine good snow and ice traction with European-style winter performance for drivers who desire winter traction on dry, wet and snow-covered roads. The Blizzak LM-18 is currently only available in 145/65R15 72T and 175/55R15 77T sizes intended for smart fortwo cars.

The Blizzak LM-18 features a high silica content tread compound molded into a directional tread design to enhance hydroplaning resistance on wet and slush-covered roads while rounded tread shoulders enhance dry and wet road handling. The Blizzak LM-18 features an independent block tread design that employs the Lamellen “edge effect” (multiple biting edges in the tread blocks to help grip snow and ice) to enhance winter traction.

The Blizzak LM-18 winter tire’s overall combination of capabilities is made possible by Bridgestone’s UNI-T technology. UNI-T combines innovative tire design, construction and tread compound to help maximize the tire’s performance, ride quality and wear while providing traction in winter.

The Blizzak LM-18 winter tire meets the industry’s severe snow service requirements and is branded with the snowflake-on-the-mountain symbol. It features blackwall styling and is currently only available in the 235/65R17 108H size.

NOTE: Snow platform indicators (the equivalent of snow wear bars) are molded into the Blizzak LM-18’s tread grooves to inform the driver when ice and snow traction will be reduced as the tire’s tread wear reaches the point where the remaining tread depth becomes less effective in deep snow.

Install Blizzak LM-18 tires in sets of four only.

Due to the traction capabilities of the Blizzak LM-18, Bridgestone recommends using Blizzak LM-18 tires only in sets of four to provide the best handling characteristics and tire performance.

UTQG: Uniform Tire Quality Grading does not apply to winter tires.
