16" Toyo Observe G3 ICE
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
Wide groves 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.
