very good
Ranked #1 of 9
Securing a top position as number 1 out of 9 competitors, the Bridgestone Blizzak LM-005 impressively stood out in a comprehensive evaluation. It was awarded a final rating of 'Very good,' highlighting its exceptional performance across various measures. This tire demonstrated remarkable capabilities, particularly on snow where it was not only fast and agile but also easy to control. It excelled in providing excellent grip on wet surfaces, alongside direct, precise, and neutral handling attributes. However, there was a discernible need for a bit more grip on dry surfaces to reach the pinnacle of performance. Dubbed as the "Wet King" with talents on snow and a low rolling resistance, it showed significant strengths. In particular, the tire was unmatched in disciplines such as Comfort, Rolling Resistance, Snow Braking, Snow Handling - Objective, Wet Braking, Wet Circle Cornering, Wet Handling, and Wet Handling - Objective, establishing its superiority across these critical performance areas.

Ranked #2 of 7
In a highly competitive lineup, the Bridgestone Blizzak LM-005 achieved an impressive second place out of seven, earning a "Recommended" rating for its overall performance. This tire stood out notably for its exceptional performance in specific areas, including interior noise, snow braking, snow traction, and excelling in wet circle cornering. Since its launch in 2019, the Blizzak LM-005 has consistently remained at the forefront, distinguished as the only tire in its category to receive an A grade for wet grip on debut, a distinction it maintained in this comparison. Particularly dominant in snow conditions, it breezed through both snow tests with a considerable margin. However, it found the wet conditions more challenging, managing a fourth-place in the wet tests, and had some difficulty in deep water situations indicative of aquaplaning scenarios. It also delivered commendable performance in wet handling, offering a secure and safe driving experience. While it didn't match the sharpness of its main rival, the Continental, in dry conditions and was somewhat limited by front grip, it stayed competitive, also showcasing among the best results in fuel economy.

Ranked #15 of 16
Finishing 15th out of 16 competitors, the Bridgestone Blizzak LM-005 was given a final rating of "Satisfactory." Testers praised its secure handling on dry roads and marked it as offering the best performance on wet roads among all tested tires, alongside its low fuel consumption. However, its performance fell short on wintry roads with weak traction, and it was criticized for its lower-than-expected tread life and higher-than-average wear. It was additionally noted for its relatively high weight. In terms of environmental impact, despite the low fuel consumption benefiting its efficiency rating, the tire suffered due to its high wear and reduced predictive mileage, ultimately receiving only a satisfactory evaluation. The Blizzak LM-005 shone with exceptional braking distances on wet surfaces, setting a high standard in handling with great aquaplaning characteristics, yet struggled with combining longitudinal and lateral forces on snow-covered roads, showing a tendency for understeering and oversteering with limited reserves which adversely affected its precision through the course.

Ranked #2 of 8
Securing the 2nd place among 8 contenders, the Bridgestone Blizzak LM-005 was distinguished with a "Highly recommended" rating, showcasing its exceptional performance across various conditions. Testers highlighted its unparalleled capabilities on wet surfaces, including the shortest braking distances on wet roads, substantial aquaplaning reserves, and a stable driving behavior during evasive maneuvers, thereby marking it as outstanding in wet conditions. On dry roads, the tyre was praised for requiring only slight steering inputs, enabling high cornering speeds and short braking distances as a result of a rear axle that cooperatively steers, contributing to a safe driving experience. While its performance on snow revealed excellent straight-line traction, a notable challenge was observed during cornering, where early understeer indicated a less effective tread engagement. Notably, the tyre demonstrated superior performance, topping the charts in dry handling, wet braking, wet circle cornering, and wet handling, affirming its robustness and reliability in variable winter conditions.

Ranked #2 of 6
Securing a commendable second place among six contenders, the Bridgestone Blizzak LM-005 stood out for its performance in the fiercely competitive winter tire segment. The fight for the top spot was incredibly close, particularly between the Bridgestone and its primary German competitor, showcasing their dominance over the others. Despite narrowly missing the top position, the Blizzak LM-005 excelled in specific areas, specifically wet braking and wet handling, where it took home wins. Its prowess was evident on the wet track where it outperformed others by maintaining a superior grip and control through turns, and also showed commendable brake performance, although not as dominant as in previous years. However, it faced challenges in dry conditions, trailing behind its main competitor, especially in braking distance and handling time. Moreover, it could not replicate its past fuel efficiency superiority in this test, where it was surpassed not only by its closest rival but also by another competitor. Despite these challenges, the Blizzak LM-005 remains a top choice, showcasing its reliable performance across varied winter conditions.
