View Full Version : Winter Tires for Sale (99% tread left!!!)

10-05-2005, 09:40 AM
As I bought myself a cheap truck for the winter... I'm selling my near new set of Bridgestone LM22 winter tires. Read the reviews.. no need for me to explain how amazing these tires are. Sizes and price at the bottom of this post.

"Blizzak LM-22 studless winter tires were developed to combine excellent snow and ice traction with European high-speed winter driving performance. Available in low profile, H-speed rated sizes; Blizzak LM-22 tires are for the drivers of high performance sport cars, sport coupes and sport sedans who require winter driving traction on dry, wet and snow-covered roads.

Blizzak LM-22 studless winter tires feature a directional tread design to enhance hydroplaning resistance on wet and slush-covered roads with rounded tread shoulders to enhance dry and wet road handling. Their tread compound has a high silica content instead of the Multicell tread compounds used on other Blizzak winter tires. This allows Blizzak LM-22 tires to combine winter traction with H-speed rated durability (current Multicell compounds can not support 130 mph H-speed ratings). The Blizzak LM-22 tires feature an independent block tread design which employs the Lamellen "edge effect" (multiple biting edges in the tread blocks to help grip snow and ice) to enhance winter traction without resorting to traditional metal studs.

The Blizzak LM-22 winter tire’s overall combination of capabilities is made possible by Bridgestone’s UNI-T technology that brings advanced tire technologies together, taking performance to a new level. Innovative tire design, construction and tread compound help maximize the tire’s performance, ride quality and wear while providing traction in winter.

Blizzak LM-22 winter tires meet the industry’s severe snow service requirements and are branded with the snowflake-on-the-mountain symbol."

The set I have for sale have under 900km's of highway driving and are in excellent condition. Sizes are: 225/45/VR17 FRONT 245/40/VR17 REAR.
***These are VR rated, meaning they are capable of 240kph***

The buyer of these tires will absolutely not be disappointed.

The only reason I cannot use them this winter has to do with the suspension I installed on my car earlier this spring. Ground clearance is very limited. I can barely get up my driveway in the summer, let alone with 30cm's of snow on the ground.

If anyone is seriously interested, please let me know before 4pm on Friday. I'll bring them out of storage in London and bring them back with me to Toronto on Monday!

it's going to be tough to sell these as most of us don't run 17" rims in the winter...

Having run 15" winter tires on my old 328is... I quickly realized that the sidewall is much softer... the steering response was nearly dangerous at high way speeds. After purchasing a car with 17" rims... and running 17" low profile snows... it's night and day (both in safety and performance).

By the way, for whomever previously posted a reply and was so amiable in helping me promoting what I have for sale. Those of us who use larger brakes cannot use 15 or 16" wheels. Sometimes low profile - performance - winter tires are the only option. I'm contrite in pleading for your ignorance.

BTW. If anyone has a set of new (or 99% tread remaining - unshaved!!) R compounds, I'll consider trading.

Looking for size:
225(or 235)/45(or 40)/17 Front
245(or 255)/45(or 40)/17 Rear.

Having failed to bring them to Toronto... I finally have a chance to bring them up from London this weekend. Anyone that was previously interested in seeing them please be patient, I'll be in touch soon.
