It took me forever to find these tires to fit my Jeep. I have a 2002 Grand Cherokee Limited with Quadra-Drive, tire size 235/65-17.The all terrains that were on it were crap, and actually scary to drive in the snow and ice. I had been searching for new tires for a few weeks, and although it was a bit of work, I am very glad I went with these.
I have had Blizzaks before, (I used to live in Summit County, CO and it is almost a necessity) and have never been dissapointed. On my last vehicle I had a set of Goodyear Ultra Grip Ice tires, and they were good, but NOTHING like these Blizzak DM-V1's!
Just had them put on yesterday. It stopped snowing about 2 days ago, and what fell has been packed down with spotty ice patches. When I brought the Jeep into the shop, I gunned it, and could do a 360 easily in the parking lot. Pulled it out with the new Blizzaks on, gunned it, and it was like I was on dry pavement!
It feels like a brand new Jeep. Tires are surprisingly quiet, and the ride is more comfortable and smooth. Even my girlfriend noticed that. Stopping distance has improved dramatically in the snow. Acceleration is fierce. But the best thing is cornering. These tires just grip. Before I had to tiptoe around corners. Not I can drive around like it is summer. I love these tires!
I haven't tested in deep snow yet, so I will give you an update when we get some. I am planning a trip to Colorado in February, and now I won't have to worry about the weather on the way there. Yes, they are that confidence inspiring!
If you live in a area that gets a lot of snow and ice driving conditions, get these. Don't even bother looking at other tires for your Jeep. These are the best out there. I recommend these to anyone!
