The Toyo Observe G3-ICE winter tire is designed for tough winter driving conditions, combining excellent winter performance with driving comfort. Equipped with Toyo’s Microbit studless tire technology and an advanced directional tread pattern the Observe G3-ICE is ready to handle snow, ice or slush yet offers superior ride comfort. For areas that experience severe winter condition the Observe G3-ICE has the option of being studded for added traction on ice and compacted snow. The new optimized stud hole placements allow for better traction with less studs. Less studs means improved ride comfort.
