Himalaya WS2, Winter Studdable

The Himalaya WS2 is made for the harshest winter weather conditions. A premium traction tire for passenger cars and SUVs designed for use with or without studs, WS2s ride like a tank on icy, snowy and wet roads. The V-shaped groove design provides added rigidity for even tread wear under high loads. The special tread compound uses rubber that remains soft in extreme cold temperatures for pliability and road grip. A zigzag tread pattern increases the contact area and has been computer-tested for best noise reduction.

This is the tire for safety-minded drivers who want the best available traction and steering performance from a winter tire. Owners of the Himalaya WS2 rate it as a standout, with excellent wet, snow and ice traction and ride comfort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Snow tires I love them! They are great for rain and snow. I feel like my car sticks to the road. I used to hdroplane all the time. Ever since I got these new tires it crusies through the ruts in the road like they weren't evin there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome winter tires! I bought these for my daughters car after my boss purchased the same tires for my work van. Absolutely the best snow tires I’ve ever used. Great traction for starting and stopping. The only downside is they grab the freeway ruts because they’re a soft tread.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth ride Extremely satisfied with these tires. I would purchase these again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super grippy, even in very cold weather. These tires are great, and allowed me to travel on ice, hard pack snow, and even through very deep snow in my lowered '94 Accord (probably 18"). My only complaint is on the highway, while noise is very minimal and I don't even hear the studs, they feel a little unsteady when traveling in a straight line, I think just because of their tall, narrow and soft nature..I am used to driving with large wide low profile tires, so probably just me, and likely not be noticeable to others; definitely would buy them again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very grippy in the snow, sloppy on the freeway I am an Uber driver and decided I needed good snow tires for the upcoming winter to make winter driving more safe and reliable. I bought these tires somewhat because they were cheap and in stock. The tread is thick and my car performs awesome on ice, snow, but my car feels like a boat on the freeway at speeds of 50 to 75 mph. My turn radius at speeds over 25 is reduced as the tires have a squishy "give" to them that makes me nervous. on the days that are wet and snowy I drive with confidence while other uber drivers stay home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For the low price this is an excellent tire I have driven in all kinds of weather and these tires have exceeded expectations. We go up to Park City often and they are terrific in snow and ice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tires After purchasing these tires about 2 months ago they have really been great. The highway noise is minimal and traction on snow and or ice have been very good. These tires are the least expensive ones but worth every penny in our opinion. Customer service is obsoletely amazing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice grip Bought these for my wife's Fiesta. The goal was peace of mind during winter commuting and they provide excellent winter traction. They get a little squirrely on the interstate, where they have grooved the road surface. Keeping the speed below 70 is necessary in that circumstance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic service and quality product I bought these tires for my daughter's car, she's thrilled and safe with her new wheels, which makes me a happy mama.
Date published: 2021-01-25
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Always out of balance For some reason Les Schwab can't get these tires balanced to prevent a vibration that starts at 55mph. My summer tires, Toyo's are smooth as silk. No vibration. These, not the case...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quite snow tire This snow tire is very quiet. And it has great traction on snow and ice. Excellent start and stopping traction, these tire also corner very well. I drive over the mountain passes in Colorado with ease.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Snow Tires! I purchased these tires for my 2020 Hyundai Kona to have a little extra traction through the winter. These tires exceeded my expectations. The traction in rain & snow is impressive. The noise isn't nearly what I thought it would be. I am very impressed with these tires & I would recommend them to anyone who owns a crossover SUV.
Date published: 2021-01-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Traction I bought these tires for the winter season because my AS tires were losing traction in the cold weather and I haven’t had that problem once with my winter tires. I still lose traction on ice if I’m not careful because my car is so light, but it’s easy to regain that traction. They’re noisy when turning but other than that they ride just like my all seasons

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for Winter I got these tires to survive an Central Washington winter, and they have done well in rain, snow, slush, and ice. Even as a new driver, and new to such weather conditions, I felt like these do a good job.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Look I purchased tires and wheels, I went back because of a balance issue,,,a ring was installed on the rims,,,,the balance issue remains,,,,,just at a different speed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Snow Tires It is January and so far the tires have worked very well. I am happy that I bought them. If you are thinking about buying tires I think tire should be included in your search.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I’m amazed the amount of traction Having these tires mounted on my front wheel drive car has given me confidence driving on the ice and snow again. Amazing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from tighter road control It's winter with snow. The tires track better in the snow that any previous tires I've had. Better than my 4 wheel truck. Good turning control and stopping.
