Top Bridgestone Blizzak LM32 Review

Given 74% while driving a Peugeot 307 (225/45 R17) on mostly motorways for 27,000 average miles
Bought this after good experience with Bridgestone Turanza T001 summer tyre.

As of performance of LM32 tyre, I'm quite statisfied. Very good grip on dry, and satisfying grip in wet conditions. In wet conditions they are not quite as good as summer Turanza tyres in cornering, but nevertheless they felt statisfying and progressive. They had good grip on snow (driven on max. snow dept of cca. 10cm) and did not budge on several hundred kilometers on icy highway when they were on the end of thread life (thread depth cca. 4,5mm)

Good comfort, but after 10 000 miles these tyres got quite noisy. Even changing sound frequency when driving over shallow puddles. Very strange. I had similar experience with noise on my other car with Bridgestone LM30 tyre.
Now the LM32 are so loud (at the end of their life, thread depth 4mm) that they had masked the sound of two bearings starting to fail! Honestly, I would not buy this tyre again just because of this irritating noise.

Given 63% while driving a Mercedes Benz C200 CDI Elegance (195/65 R15 H) on a combination of roads for 9,000 average miles
Bought these two tyres over Bridgestone Blizzak LM25 and put them on the back. Inittialy they weren't my fist choice but I didn't wanted to mix different manufactures.
Dry and snow grip is very good, but wet grip is very poor, especially on a climb (ESP immediately interferes) and on motorways. They didn't offer me that much of a confidence on wet because they start to loose grip very easy. In start they were acceptable quiet but while time was passing by, they started to be more and more nosier. Honestly I was disappointed because I was expecting more from this premium brand. I wouldn't recommend putting these tyres on RWD vheicles. All in all, they are ok tyres if you are looking only snow and dry easy going grip, but very expensive, you can buy better all round winter tyres for less money.

These are the best tyres in the world. Watch now!
Given 68% while driving a Toyota Yaris (185/60 R15 H) on a combination of roads for 20,000 easy going miles
I have ordered a new set of these winter tyres, being excited after seeing some initial encouraging reviews. However, I have been a bit disappointed really. Even more so that they were on a mild going, low-torque 1.33L VVTI gasoline Yaris, which is sprinty but does not have that much torque. These tires lost grip quite quickly when stepping more quickly on the pedal and even more so, they didn't offer that much of a confidence when braking in winter conditions. That is, with cold, wet, melted snow (slur) or even dry fresh snow. On ice it's not even worth mentioning. Really they do not stand up to the level to which Blizzak is advertised.

Given 49% while driving a BMW 330D Touring (245/40 R17 V) on a combination of roads for 8,000 spirited miles
I have these fitted to the back of my BMW and they're ok in the dry, still spin relatively easily when setting off quickly and still easily get 'let off oversteer' and power oversteer is relatively easy to achieve as well.
In the wet I'd say unless driven with caution they're dangerous, spin very easily and slide very easily as well, very unpredictable, breaking away with no prior warning, you definitely need to keep your wits about you if trying to make decent progress. For instance entering a motorway slip road recently, 4th gear at approx 50mph it flicked sideways on 1/2 throttle.
They are surprisingly good in the snow though which I guess is ultimately what I bought them for. Only ever got stuck when the chassis ground out due to the depth of the snow, otherwise I didn't have any problems. Very predictable and stable.
Overall I wouldn't recommend them for any car with reasonable power as they are so easily overwhelmed.
