Observe GSi-5, Winter 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 great tires for the northwest All season, studless. Recommended to use only in winter, but drive all year with them. May wear sooner than regular radials, but the traction in the mountains and rain can't be beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No sign of tread wear. Should last long time. Right tire for my type of driving. They will give me confidence for road trips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great in the snow. I bought these tires last winter and a week after I got them, ended up road testing in a blizzard. They handles great. No sliding or slippage. Also great handling in the rain.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality for the value Had them on my 2012 Toyota Corolla S, Does well for the price, can’t complain for quality per value, drive the car all over the state in single digits to mid 70s temps including lots of Uber, very happy with snow performance however per usual with snow tours would not recommend driving then in temps of 65+ as the tire ply is just too soft and not safe to drive so strictly winter use only as I was not comfortable driving then in 70+ degree temps cuz handling gets sketchy and splashy so swap them back for your all season or summer tires ASAP

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top-Notch Winter Tires Due to the COVID outbreak, these winter tires didn't get the rigorous testing they might have otherwise, but they were absolutely great for several trips to the mountain and over the Cascade passes in December, January, and February.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great traction Although our winter turned out to be very mild when there was snow or ice on the that's these tires provided great traction.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Snow Tires Rock Winter Travel Live on Oregon Coast so no longer need the tough tread for winter driving! How ever still have folks in North Idaho. Christmas is still in Winter and they still have lots of snow! Could not even move my Fiesta out of Son's level grounded parking space! Used the kitty litter trick, and white knuckled it to the Priest River Les Schwab! Wanted studs but reluctant because of change over dates! Manager said the walnut tires had never failed him over Snoqualmie and that sold me! They are wonderful tires, excellent grip in snow. And definite difference in slush and ice too. Of course nothing beats actually drivin' safe as well, but you do gave to get out of the parking lot!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good snow tires. I bought these snow tires instead of the studied snow tires. They are very quiet and they performed just as good as the studied tires through the mountain passes. I was happy and There was no Noise driving slow like I had with the old snow studied tires.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good ride The tires performed very well in all types of weather I felt very secure in knowing that they would be safe when we encountered icy conditions

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Observe GSi-5 winter tires perform well The Observe GSi-5 winter tires I purchased in January performed very well on my 2018 Nissan Leaf during a very snowy and wet winter in my SE Alaska community. They were a good purchase. I switched back to the summer tires in April when snow and mud conditions were past. Our roads in this Alaskan bush community are mostly gravel or sand. Winter driving conditions are tough as it is hard to keep roads smooth in winter. It is too early to evaluate tread life, however.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Snow tire I bought these last winter to replace another brand of studless snow tires. These tires performed extremely well. They handled icy conditions particularly well and had no trouble at all in moderate to deep snow. A little bit of road noise but to be expected with a snow tire. Would definitely buy again and as usual excellent Les Schwab service.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great traction but can be a little squirrelly. We snow ski so we need good snow tires. These have great traction and are ok as far as noise level on dry payment. My only complaint is they tend to become a little unstable when you get on the concrete sections of I-84 that have the groves. You are driving straight on dry pavement and suddenly they will cause the car to move very slightly from side to side. It can be a little un-nerving.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Service and friendly staff. The tires I bought were for my daughters car. We continue to run the tires as we rotate wither tires during the winter season. No issues at all with the tires and they are wearing very good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Newtire First,I felt extremely lucky that there was this tire available since I had three others I needed to match and I found out it’s no longer being made. The car is moving smoothly and the tire is working perfectly. I have since taken the car over the Santiam pass in the snow and noted good traction. I felt extremely lucky that there was this tire available since I had three others I needed to match and I found out it’s no longer being made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tires. The tires work very well in snow and ice. Having them on my Subaru, makes getting around much easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy tires! Bought these two years ago: first studless snow tires I’ve owned. I noticed a difference in how my car handled the road as soon as I pulled out on the road after the tires were installed. Handles better then any other tires I’ve ever had! I highly recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tire I used these the last 3 Winters and I will buy them again.
