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 Getting over the mountain and through the snow! I bought my tires about 3 months ago and they have gotten me over Mt. Hood dozens of times. I don’t have to stop to put chains on, but can get through some of the worst storms this year. Thank you Les Schwab!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Confidence builders I had been driving my front-wheel drive van fairly regularly over a local 5000-foot pass, dealing with chains a few times. I bought these tires to hopefully avoid chains. Came over the pass the other day in "severe weather conditions" - all good going up the pass, and down the other side. Great traction, and great confidence-building.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Leave them on year round. I just went over 130,000 When I bought my car in 05, I couldn’t believe how little traction I had in snow. I believed that a front wheel drive car always had good traction. I immediately went to LesSchwab and they took care of my problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very grippy on ice I have these tires on a subcompact car with front wheel drive. i haven't yet had the chance to drive in snow, but have encountered some ice--and on a twisty, steep road. The tires performed very well. I am so glad they don't make a racket like the kind with metal studs, as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very aggressive looking snow tires. Have not yet driven on snow or ice with these tires but they look like they will be able to handle it just fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good traction Was not a fan of low Profile tires... they take the road bumps hard although these tires do have good traction, would buy again.
Date published: 2021-05-20
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good snow tire for the price Research from various DOTs show that studies winter tires out perform studded tires in all conditions except white ice. I've used several different studless and studded winter tires over the past 30 years and the Observe GSi-5 performs very well in winter weather. Made several trips up into the mountains for winter recreation without an issue.

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
Date published: 2021-03-07
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.
