Notable Features

Firestone Winterforce 2 is a studdable winter tire with a directional tread pattern, designed for safe daily use on SUVs, CUVs, and light pickup trucks. This 2016 tire model is characterized by confident traction on winter surfaces, ride comfort, and short braking distances on slush and snow. As one can easily guess from the tire’s name, the Firestone Winterforce 2 is an upgraded version of the popular Firestone Winterforce model. What makes the new model different is not only its improved performance but also a wider coverage of the CUV, SUV, and pickup truck market (+14%).

The tread design was changed significantly, even though it did retain the traditional directional property, characteristic of winter tires, serving to speed up evacuation of water, slush, and melted snow from the contact area. The dense sipe network on independent tread blocks enhances traction on loose snow. Fitting the tire with anti-skid studs further increases the driving safety on ice and hard-packed snow. The internal structure of Winterforce 2 includes a double steel undertread strip that further improves the tire’s overall performance and extends tread life.

I've used these tires for 3 winters and now they are completely worn down. But their perfomance on snow was great. In the wet weather I've never faced hydroplaning.
What is bad?
A little noisy.
