Toyo Observe Gsi-6 HP

Are you looking for a tire that is as efficient on ice and snow as it is on wet or muddy roads? Toyo’s Observe Gsi-6 HP was specially designed for these winter conditions thanks to the Microbit technology (crushed nut shells integrated into the tire tread). Ideal for SUVs and sports cars, this Toyo tire has large blocks inside it connected together in order to increase stability at high speed, as well as cone-shaped evacuation grooves.

Thanks to the biting edges around the blocks, the tire adheres easily to the road in snowy or slushy conditions. Toyo has brought all their technologies together to improve the performance of their tire; the result? A tire that drives better in the snow and on ice, with significant improvement on cold wet roads.

Goodyear Winter Command

Are you looking for a tire that will retain its flexibility, even during the extremely cold temperatures of the Canadian winter, without impacting braking and turning? Go for the Goodyear Winter Command and its excellent quality price ratio for every type of vehicle.

Nails can be added to this unidirectional tire, which makes it efficient in difficult winter conditions. Unidirectional tires have larger grooves which evacuate more water and have better adherence in the snow. Especially made to only drive in one direction, unidirectional tires improve acceleration in straight lines and reduce braking distances.

With its deep zig-zag grooves, it has better traction on wet and snowy roads, even during the tire’s progressive wear. The Winter Command tire also promises to provide rapid acceleration and braking on snowy roads to help keep your peace of mind during your winter drives…
