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 Excellent tires Bought late winter but they performed better than any winter tire I have had

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best dedicated snow tire I've used Use these on all our Subaru's. Winter of 18/19 tried to get out of driveway with original street tires and had to shovel driveway, then shovel street about 50 yards just to get it up the hill. Getting to Les Schwab was an adventure, no control at all in about 5" of NW moist snow. Got the Observes on and motored home like I was driving a snowmobile. Even stopped going up a steep hill to talk to a neighbor and drove away without any slip at all. Like I said, all of our Subaru's and our kids Subaru's have these on from November until April. We used to ski three days a week so we see the value in good snow tires.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome snow and ice tires! Bought back in November when snow was in our forecast, we were now to Central WA and did not know what to expect. I felt an immediate change in my tires the first snow we got. We drove over the mountain passes, ice and slush 6 inches deep, and our new tires never slipped once. Am a happy customer!! Such a better choice than noisy studded tires or putting on chains, no comparison!

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.

Date published: 2020-06-18
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.
