enter to win a set of bridgestone winter tires

The snow is coming, at least for a good portion of the North American continent. This means that you might want to consider winter tires for your ride, in order to navigate snowy and icy conditions.

Problem is, a set of snowshoes for your car can be expensive.

Well, if you have a tight budget and a few minutes of time, we might be able to help.

TTAC has partnered with Bridgestone to offer up a free set of Bridgestone Blizzak tires.

These tires include circumferential grooves to reduce hydroplaning, silica to improve traction by making the tread compound flexible, interlocking sipes that provide more edges for enhanced snow and wet-weather performance without sacrificing precision handling, Nanopro-Tech that prevents the rubber from stiffening in the cold while also distributing the silica more effectively to improve flexibility and grip contact.

That’s not all! A multi-cell compound removes the thin layer of surface water to improve grip on icy roads, 3D sipes that improve overall performance by enhancing block stiffness and contact area, zig-zagging sipes that increase the number of biting edges to improve traction, and a center multi-z pattern that improves drainage and creates even more biting edges.

Some of you might believe you don’t need winter tires because you have all-season rubber and/or all-wheel drive. But all-wheel drive doesn’t help with stopping distance in the same way as winter tires do, and all-season tires don’t maximize protection in snow and icy conditions the way that winter tires do.

Winter tires are, simply put, a wise investment for our Snow-Belt readers. And we’re here to take some of the sting out of that investment with this promotion.

For the purposes of this promotion, the tires available will be either WS90s (sedan/van) or DMV2s (SUV/trucks). The tires will be shipped to the winner, unmounted, and the winner will need to have them mounted and balanced. The tires can be shipped either to the customer directly or to a nearby store for mounting and balancing.

To participate, please click here. The contest ends on December 20th, so don’t delay!

    I have a 2001 Chevrolet Blazer with only rear wheel drive. With all season tires or terrain style tires it absolutely had no traction in the snow. I would back out of my driveway in the snow then stop to put it in drive. When in drive at an idle both rear tires would spin while barely moving the Blazer ahead and sideways at that. I would then get to the end of my street and apply the brakes it would spin-out. It was totally unsafe in the snow! I decided to buy another set of rims for the winter and had some Bridgestone Blizzacks mounted. The Blazer is now a snow monster. The neighbors now think I have a 4WD as I motor out of the sub-division in the snow.

  • Cprescott Ford killed the TRANSit because it identified itself as a station wagon.
  • Crtfour I live in East Tennessee where most of the time driving is pretty low stress. But for work I have the misfortune of passing through Atlanta every 3-4 months. And passing through downtown you have to change lanes and merge so many times I still can't seem to keep it straight. On my last trip I ended up in an exit only lane ; the lane next to me where I had to get into was stopped so I was blocking the exit lane with this guy behind me blowing his horn and flashing his lights. I finally managed to get over finally allowing this guy to floor it and be on it's way. I consider myself a good driver with the exception of passing through there.
  • Pishta Those 80 B2000's were very Ford Courier like but the 81's had a completely new for Mazda dash. Less pods, more integration in one window. These didn't get the F motor until 84(?) only with the B2200 option. Single wall beds had lost of rust through issues. The 80 Quad headlamp grill was very rare, I dont rememeer seeing but one growing up.
  • FreedMike So it has transited out of existence here...
  • TheEndlessEnigma Self fulfilling prophesy. Ford spends virtually nothing on sales and marketing for the Transit....then scratches their collective heads not understand why it doesn't sell to their assumed objectives. If you do not market the vehicle, it will not sell. Pretty simple to understand really. Ford sure is working hard to make itself a niche automobile company, trucks and SUV's only. But that's OK, Kia/Hyundai/Toyota/Honda and yes even Volkswagen & Nissan are more than happy to sell to those customers Ford is apparently happy to walk away from.
