Bridgestone's Blizzak W965 tire is intended for commercial light trucks and vans and is designed for winter use. Its features include a repeated pattern of tread blocks to grip snow and to provide decent road grip through wet and snowy conditions. Its zig-zag sipe pattern increases the number of leading edges in the footprint to increase traction on snow and ice. Also, the rubber has an added cellular compound (with tiny pores to absorb water) to cut through surface water and achieve traction on solid ice. This tire comes in a moderate range of sizes.
