Observe GSi-5, Studless

Considered the best overall studless snow tire available, the Observe GSi-5 delivers a safe, secure ride in challenging conditions, even slushy, snowy, rutted roads. With sizes for passenger cars, light trucks, crossovers and SUVs, this winter tire has a directional tread design for stability and improved traction during braking and acceleration. Large, saw-toothed tread blocks and the ultimate in siping technology ensure maximum grip for cornering and stopping. The specialized rubber contains walnut shell for added snow and ice traction and remains soft in extreme cold. Wide lateral grooves clear slush out of the tread with efficiency for greater control.

Owners of the Observe GSi-5 rate it above other winter tires they’ve tried, and praise its extended tread wear, the way it bulldozes through snow conditions, and the smooth ride. This is a tire for the driver who wants confident winter handling no matter what’s happening with the weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long lasting I have put over 100,000 highway miles on these times. Got them rotated every 5000 miles which means I visit a shop once a month. The staff is very kind no matter which shop I use for the rotation. The tires are still going strong with plenty of tread.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from North Idaho Tires Whether it's road tripping through Montana, Wyoming, Oregon and Idaho or climbing up the pot-holed mountains of North Idaho, these tires have been great. My driveway is a steep gravel hill and these tires never slip. Consitently taking these tires over roads with rocks poking out and never have to worry. I make a lot of trips from Sandpoint to Spokane as well and it's smooth sailing until I hit about 80mph. But what can you expect at that speed with AWD??
