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 and offers superior ride comfort.

  • Improved compound with high levels of silica ensures tread blocks remain flexible at lower temperatures. Silica also helps enhance wet grip and traction.
  • Wide evacuation grooves for efficient evacuation of water, snow or slush.
  • Multi-wave sipes to increase tread block rigidity. Increased sipe density to increase ice traction.
  • Alternating buttress block design helps dig into snow and propel the vehicle through slush or snow rutted roads.
  • V-shaped centre rib with a horizontal Sipe offers stability at higher speeds. V-Shape design improves water or slush drainage. Horizontal sipes improve braking and accelerating.
  • Large u-shaped tread blocks with saw toothed edges designed for added aggressive grip on snow or slush. Saw-toothed edges further improve cornering and braking ability.
  • Gear edge design increases edge effect for better traction during cornering or braking with or without studs installed.
  • Optimized stud hole placement increases scratch effect (road contact) with less studs for better traction and reducing ride noise.
  • Microbit Technology In Compound : Crushed Walnut shells embedded in the tire tread compound dig and bite into the ice surface for improved ice traction.

Fusion AWD SEL installed October 2016. Driven 11,455kms all conditions driven, excellent traction in all conditions. 1/2 city 1/2 Hwy with lots of men pass driving. Last tires Nokian Hakkapelitta. I prefer Toyo for price, service and winter handling only negative is they r a bit noisier on dry/wet pavement. Will buy again and I do suggest G3ice to friends.
