Maxxis Premitra Ice 5 SUV


The Maxxis Premitra Ice 5 SUV is a studless ice and snow tire specifically designed for light trucks and SUVs. The tire is a part of the Nordic Winter series from Maxxis and replaces the earlier Maxxis Presa SUV SS-01 model.

Features & Benefits

  • Innovative Compound: Made from a new SiRu silica rubber compound, the tire remains flexible even in low temperatures, allowing it to conform to uneven icy surfaces and thereby increasing the contact patch for improved traction and handling.
  • V-Shaped Tread Pattern: Designed to improve vehicular control in various driving conditions, the tread pattern of this tire enhances overall performance.
  • Wave-Shaped Sipes: The tread blocks contain multiple wave-shaped sipes that help improve traction on slippery surfaces. These sipes expand to absorb water from icy surfaces during contact and release the liquid when they leave the contact area.
  • Significant Performance Improvements: According to tests conducted at the UTAC site in Ivalo, Finland, the Premitra Ice 5 SUV outperforms its predecessor in ice performance. Notably, the braking distance when decelerating from 25 to 5 km/h was reduced by more than 3 meters.
  • Noise Reduction: The tire offers quieter performance compared to its predecessor, providing a more comfortable driving experience.
  • Consistent Snow Performance: While ice performance has been notably enhanced, the tire's capabilities on snow have remained consistent with its predecessor.

Year Released

Introduced in 2022, this tire is one of Maxxis' most recent offerings in their winter tire lineup.
