I have searched all over and can't find a master tire size list for Bridgestone Blizzak tires. Especially what is the shortest in height version they sell? I have been all over the Bridgestone sight and can't find a master list.

Last I checked BF Goodrich has an easily found list of all the sizes of the BFG All Terrain T/A tire you can buy. I have owned several sets of them. They are a great tire.

Using the criteria "shortest height" is the problem here. A 215-60-15 will have 215 mm section width, 60% of 215 is the "aspect ratio" and is the distance (more or less) from the ground to the rim. This ratio is measured as a percentage of the width. So...if you are looking for a tire height, there are many variables. Redefine your question...what width tire can your car accept? What size rim? What do you have now (most important), and what is your goal.

I called a dealer. Smallest Blizzak tire is 175-65-14 which is just a hair under 23" tall,,, the same height as the rear tires on many garden tractors. All a person needs is a 14" Ranger wheel and it should bolt up to 5 bolt rear hubs if the offset doesn't make the tire hit anything.

OK, so what is the use for, and why Blizzak?? You can get these, what are are tick smaller, and a little cheaper, IMHO a better all around tire.

I have used these on all my cars, and am sold on them. GREAT ice and snow traction, and after the first few seasons, they loose a little ice grip, but still do well on snow and wear like iron!!! Ive had well over 40k on a set that Ive run all year long.

Blizzaks are better than Winterforce. I have ran both, but if your running it on a tractor, winterforce is what I would run
