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 grip Bought these about a month before the big ice storm, glad I did. The moment I could get it out of the snow bank, it handled great, minimal slipping

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for normal winter conditions. I bought 4 snow tires early in winter. The weather was clear so they weren't necessary until last month. They performed well in light snow. In 13" of snow I couldn't safely back out of my drive. I do have a slight incline and a second car was beside mine so when I began to fish tail I had to return to the garage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Winter Tires As a singler, older woman, I need to be safe on the road. I travel back and forth between Boise and Portland thru the Gorge to visit family thru the year and that can be treacherous in good weather. With these Winter tires, I felt much safer this year braving the wintery conditions that I am still willing to drive in to see the Grand kids.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not great winter tires at all! I had purchased a brand new car in May but wanted to be as secure as I could for winter so I replaced the the tires with the best winter tires that Les Schwann had to offer. At least that is what they said. I am not sure but what the original tires would have been better. These new tires have little traction even in lite snow!
