Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1
 
How accurate are their tires within spec of the advertised tire ratio? I am looking to get two rear tires for that little help in traction on the cold/iced roads here.

My prefer tire and size were Blizzak LM-25 in 305/45/18 or 275/55/18 but could not find any but i am open to other suggestions. Looking for around 285 to 305 width with 29-30" height.

Thanks.

Winter tires in just the back is a bad idea. It will help you go but won't help you stop. You will also get massive understeer.

For a cheap route, there are no other cheaper winter tires than Winterforce by Firestone.

AZ cold is not really cold, cold. If this helps i ran rear DR's and front Toyo Proxes straight through winter last year just fine. Just want to save the tread wear until next Spring.

Looking at this as a "poor man" DR vs what they really are intended for.
Best size for the DM-V1 for me would be 255/55/18. Pretty narrow but the 4/6 should help conceal it.
