Toyo Observe G3-Ice



Description

  • Environmentally-friendly natural material.

High-Silica Winter Compound:

  • Ensures tread blocks remain flexible in lower temperatures;
  • Enhances wet braking and handling even in lower temperatures.

Optimized Stud Hole Placement:

  • Improves road contact and traction with fewer studs;
  • Reduces noise, resulting in a quieter ride;
  • Able to accept TSMI #11 studs to aid in ice traction.

Large U-Shaped Tread Blocks With Saw-Tooth Edge:

  • Grab onto the snow for better traction and braking.

Gear Edge Design At Stud Hole:

  • Provides better traction during cornering and braking.

High Density 3D Multi-Wave Sipes:

  • Improves traction on ice and compact snow during cornering, braking and acceleration;
  • Increases tread block rigidity.

Best winter tyres I've driven on. They perform great in snow and ice, quiet at highway speeds.

I drive every day and the tires are quite good. They handle well. But I would mention the fact that they are factory studded and at 60-70 mhp there is awful unbearable noise. Would definitely not buy again, but for city or suburban usage only, yes maybe.

I've bought these tires brand new but never had the chance to try them in deep snow because of the warm winter. And finally I had done that. We have very deep snow this winter, the roads are not cleaned at all and these tires perform amazingly! I really didn't expect that! The ride is quiet and handling is well. They are great! Great value for money!

Best winter tyres I've driven on. They perform great in snow and ice, quiet at highway speeds.

I drive every day and the tires are quite good. They handle well. But I would mention the fact that they are factory studded and at 60-70 mhp there is awful unbearable noise. Would definitely not buy again, but for city or suburban usage only, yes maybe.

I've bought these tires brand new but never had the chance to try them in deep snow because of the warm winter. And finally I had done that. We have very deep snow this winter, the roads are not cleaned at all and these tires perform amazingly! I really didn't expect that! The ride is quiet and handling is well. They are great! Great value for money!
