    To some people, the model matters.

    e.g.
    The Blizzak WS70 features a softer dual-compound tread with Bridgestone's NanoPro-Tech silica-enhanced Tube Multicell compound layered on top of a standard winter compound. The Tube Multicell compound features thousands of microscopic tubes and cells uniformly distributed throughout the compound (which makes the rubber look like Swiss cheese when examined through a microscope) that wick away the water that often forms between the tire's contact patch and the surface of icy and snow-packed roads. Pores and tubes are constantly exposed around the tread as the tire wears. This flexible rubber compound boosts the tire's grip in cold conditions while the bite particles attached to the tubes scratch at packed snow and icy surfaces for traction.

    The Blizzak LM-60, being a high performance winter / snow tire, is offered in a higher speed rating (H/130 mph). Since the current Multicell tread compounds used on Blizzak WS70 tires are not designed to support H-speed ratings, the Blizzak LM-60 uses a high silica content winter tread compound molded into a directional tread design that features independent tread blocks with 3-D zigzag sipes to disperse water away from the tire's contact patch, further enhancing grip. This combination provides hydroplaning resistance, greater driving and braking force on snow-covered roads.

    How do these differences affect a driver's experience in winter conditions? Simply put, the WS70 has better ice and snow traction, while the LM-60 has better responsiveness and handling on dry pavement.
    edit: those are obviously just two of the models among the plethora that has evolved since the Blizzaks came out. If these are the WS50, I think those have been discontinued. If someone doesn't want two mismatched pairs in the event of a flat, they might want to not purchase these and opt for a more recent/non-discontinued model.

    Yes it matters. I WAS a real buyer. But I don't screw around. The ad didn't communicate what you were selling and if it matched what I needed. No reply. So I moved on. I'm used to people listing ads and then not replying to them

    you obviously dont want to post the model number for a reason. could have been done in any of your last 4 posts instead of trying to ignore the question and hope someone buys them without knowing whats what. like vik said.

    The WS-50's are worth their weight in gold. The finest Blizzak tire ever produced! Ice racers used to literally hoard these tires.
    I wish I had something that I could fit them on. There will never be another WS-50...
