I would rate these Toyo GSI 5 tires as extremely dangerous to drive on ice. I am an experienced winter driver who has safely driven for over 30 years in the Canadian north on many different brands of tires. With that said these tires absolutely scared the heck out of me on ice and with them on my F150 lost control constantly. I have never experienced tires this terrible for winter use before even including regular all season tires. I had to drive extremely defensively using these GSI 5s always being prepared for the truck to kick out and start sliding sideways with no warning..You can’t take your mind off driving for an instant when using these tires or you’ll be in trouble as straight line driving traction is marginal at best and cornering with these is terrible. I used these one winter but will never drive with them again, my life is more than worth throwing these almost new tires away. Seriously I did not realize there could be tires out there.that perform this dangerously on ice. Beware!

I am on my 2nd winter with these tires on my 2017 F150 limited, and I am totally disappointed. My vehicle has 18000 kms, which means these GSi have less than half that (estimate 7500 kms) on them. Tons of tread. Rubber is not old (i checked manu date) and yet, I find that this winter, I lack complete confidence in slippery conditions. The tires lose grip very easily around a corner if a bit a snow or ice. Very poor grip upon take off, tires spin like crazy, often requiring me to engage 4x4 mode just to get moving. What solidified it for me was this week my truck was in the dealer for some work and they gave me an f150 with all season tires and I felt more stable in the same conditions with ALL SEASON tires than my F150 with these WINTER Toyos. Paid good money for these tires and have had Toyos in the past with success. These, however, have been horrible and don't expect them to get better with wear.

I bought them from the dealership as I had a credit on winter tires. I have been told they were their top quality tires. I installed them on a minivan. The grip is terrible. Most of the time I break, the ABS system kicks on. Its the same thing when I accelerate. Most of the time the traction control gets on. I would not recommand them on a minivan van at least.

Terrible - sliding into intersection with little snow on road. ABS and traction control pounding with the slightest touch of the pedals. Only a marginal increase in winter performance over 4 season Cooper TX4. Strangely this tire is quiet on my Xterra. $1200 wasted as I will discard very soon
