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 a great buy! I purchased the tires for my daughter''s car and she feels safe ride on wet, snowy, and icy roads

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked great in snow and ice and rain! Bought these just before a big winter storm. New transplant from a warmer climate so was a little concerned how I and my Elantra would do. Did great! Having driven in the rain with my standard tires, I could definitely tell traction was much better. It became a matter of drifts and clearance rather than tread. Definitely glad the investment was made. Will be going back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! I put these things on my Altima , and more it eats the snow alive. I had my doubts about a studless tire, but these are great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great winter tire without studds, very happy with the winter performance on ice and snow.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No traction Bought these for winter and supposed to have superior cold weather rubber, but traction is non existent. Like driving butter on a hot skillet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Himalaya winter tires I am very pleased with how these tires handle the snow and ice, I have not had any issues getting stuck this winter or not being able to drive on snowy and icy roads.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet and smooth ride I bought them for winter snow tires for a small AWD SUV and am glad I did. Even thought we haven’t had any real depth(greater than 5 “), they have performed without a hitch!! So far, so good!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from holds firm to icy road conditions I am so glad we got good winter tires this year. The icy/snowy road conditions are so much easier to handle with good tire treads.
Date published: 2022-01-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good shoes I've run these tires on my Nissan Juke for a couple of years now. They have proven themselves safe and dependable beyond many other winter tires I've tried over the years. I run them without studs as they handle most winter road conditions well without them, albeit there are some conditions, like black ice, where studs would be a good option (they can be studded if you wish). Beyond that, they meet my performance standards in all types of inclement weather driving. The tread pattern is superior for traction, their stopping capabilities are excellent, and they are not nearly as noisy as some others I have tried or experienced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Winter Tires I have always used Toyo Observe winter tires prior to this year. I decided to try the Federal Himalaya WS2 (non-studded) and they seem to work as well as the Toyos. I'm not a fan of studs, so was a bit hesitant, since the WS2 can be studded. My only minor complaint so far is the rumble, not nearly as quiet as the Toyos.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love 'em so far! I bought these snow tires for my subaru outback. With the winter weather we just went through they performed great. They are also much quieter than my old tires which is an added benefit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great snow tires! This is my first year with these winter tires, and they have been great in heavy rain, and now in snow and ice. Awesome grip...would definitely buy them again.

Date published: 2021-12-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent winter tires I always have a modicum of doubt concerning most things automotive as I've been turning wrenches over 40 years. That said, These are the best winter car tires I've ever owned bar none. Also happy that I declined the offer to have them studded as it's not necessary with these tires.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My opinion of the tires The tires seem to wear normally and have low road noise, no complaints at all.
Date published: 2021-12-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great in the snow! I had never bought winter tires before and wasn't sure how much difference they'd make - but we drove through a snow storm in a little sedan (Ford Focus) with these tires, and the car handled great, never lost traction. Such a good purchase!

Date published: 2021-11-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great handling on our curved, steep roads I have had this same tire before and loved them. Typically a tire has to be good at one thing, traction, or longevity, but these seem to do everything well. There may be quieter all highway treads out there, however these have to be one of the quietest all terrain tires I have ever driven on.
Date published: 2021-09-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best snow tire I have ever used! I’m retired Les Schwab store manager, after using these tires for the last 6 years myself and selling them to my customers; I consider them to be the very best snow and ice tire built today! There are no tie bars at the ends of the sipes, this allows the tread face to be even more pliable. Hands down! Don’t waste your money on the rest which are more expensive anyway, try a set.
