    Blizak is a model name.

    Maybe you mean "siped" tires?

    I hear many folks really making a big deal about it, but I couldn't say.
    The BFG All Terrains are siped, but I have ran very few tires other than these over the last 30 years, so ???

    Studs have been illegal here in Ohio for >35 yrs.
    I remember some guys would search out an old set when we were kids and then go fry them off at night.
    I guess it lined their wheel-wells with something other than just rubber?

    Wonderful tyres, I had a Mk 1 Transit 1 ton van ( like this FORD TRANSIT MK 1 - Bing Images | LE FORD TRANSIT MK 1 | Pinterest | Ford transit, Mk1 and Ford) on vegetable and salad farm service work in the late 70's & early 80's it seldom had less than 3/4 ton on board and took some real hammer Magnificent piece of kit.

    With Firestone Town and Country cross ply's (or their closest copy) all round, within reason ??? where that van couldn't get would be easier to list.

    Yes they were noisy, .........and empty or lightly laden, ....shall we say ;- a trifle skittish in the wet?

    Gaak...a derivative of the Austin A3. No room for nought.
    Made good chook sheds though.....

    Worst van I ever drove was a Commer- and it had crossply tires for some reason, even in the mid '90s. Never again.
