Bought from Costco in December 2015 and only on the vehicle for three winter seasons. Tires have approximately 12,000 miles of use.
The Blizzak WS80 is Bridgestone's Studless Ice & Snow winter tire developed for compact, coupe, sedan and minivan drivers looking to power through winter with confident control. When winter driving conditions are at their worst, Bridgestone's Blizzak WS80 winter tires are designed to be at their best.
The Blizzak WS80 uses Bridgestone's next-generation adaptive NanoPro-Tech Multicell compound that features a water-loving hydrophilic coating and microscopic bite particles. This combination allows the Multicell compound to remain flexible in below-freezing conditions, wick water off the road to combat slipping on packed snow and ice while the bite particles act as microscopic studs that deliver more grip and improve braking on glare ice. This compound is molded into a directional tread design featuring 20% more (compared to WS70) block edges where Circumferential and Lateral Grooves help channel water, slush and snow away from the contact area for added control while 3-D Zig-Zag Sipes increase the number of snow biting edges.
Blizzak WS80 tires offer an optimized tire footprint or contact patch with the road, helping to distribute forces evenly and effectively for better stability and control in dry, icy and snowy conditions.
