Toyo Observe GSI-5 245/70R-16

The Observe GSI-5 is a studless winter tire that’s designed for sedans, CUVs, SUVS, and light trucks and is Three-Peak Mountain Certified.

Features & Benefits

  • Winter tread design
  • Black Sidewall
  • Three-Peak Mountain Snowflake symbol means that this tire can perform in severe snow conditions
  • Driving in the winter months can be a nerve-racking experience thanks to low temperatures, snow, and ice. Toyo’s Observe GSI-5 is designed to give drivers strong grip on wet roads plus braking and traction in winter’s colder temperatures. A powder created from bamboo within the tire is designed to absorb moisture from the road so that the Observe GSI-5 can have better traction with the road. Ground walnut shells dig into the snow to improve traction for drivers, while wide grooves within the tread move water out of the tire. The Observe GSI-5 features a Three-Peak Mountain Snowflake symbol thanks to its ability to handle winter weather, making it an excellent choice for vehicles such as the Acura RDX, Audi Q7, Ford Edge and Fusion, and Lexus RX 350.

Toyo Observe GSI-5

Dubs Taylor
Purchase these for my wife’s car. And so far she loves them and she’s a very aggressive driver. Didn’t run them in the snow yet since we didn’t have any yet I. Pennsylvania. In all the other fall weather seem to be better then expected. The tires feel in the right place at the right time. Tons of grip in the wet and handles very well on dry roads. Aren’t very noisy. Tires are on a 2017 Subaru Outback 2.5 wagon. Gone from a blizzark Run flats LM-80 to the Toyo GSI. can’t believe a $200 less tire feel even better all around. Love snow tires and would suggest these to anyone who what to add safety and confidence to their winter drive.

Toyo Observe GSI 5 tires are the absolute BEST winter tires ever made I first tried Toyo Observe tires with the microbit (walnut) technology in the winter of 2006. I was working in a 24x7x365 job and needed a set of tires that could handle the snow and ice of a Colorado winter. I had a 1998 Saturn SL2 at the time. The Saturn had no ABS brakes. The night after I bought the tires and had them mounted there was freezing rain that turned to black ice on the roads. Then came a dusting of powder snow making the slickest possible winter conditions. The next morning, my first workday after getting the tires, I drove in to work on that ice with powder snow on top, leaving my house at 0455 a.m. The traction was good, and the handling was great. I thought “so far, so good.” When I got to work, I did a test in the huge parking lot there. I took the car up to about 27 MPH and slammed on the brakes (the car had no ABS brakes). And I mean that I stood on the brakes as hard as I could. The braking response was amazing. I was pleased with how the car braked on the super-slick, ice and snow. I was completely convinced of the value of the Toyo Observe GSI5 from then on. Many times I was the only person who could get in to work when my teammates were snowbound. I often say that the Toyo Observe tires made my Saturn like an all-wheel-drive Jeep. One year, about six years later, I was in Southern Colorado, driving back roads to get to work at a somewhat remote site outside of Colorado Springs. A recent snowfall had left six inches of snow on the road, and the road had not been plowed. I had a set of Toyo Observe GSI5’s on my station wagon and was driving according to conditions around 35 miles per hour on a two-lane back road. Another car came up behind me and thought that I was going too slow so he started to pass me. I knew the road, and knew that there was a dip in the road ahead that could easily hide an oncoming car. Sure enough, there was a car coming straight toward the guy who was trying to pass me. Still going forward at 30 MPH, I pulled toward the right side and was driving half-on, half-off the pavement in six inches of fresh snow. I expected to hear an impact to my left and see flying metal. But no, the guy who had been trying to pass me pulled back behind me. I attest that the superior gripping ability of the Toyo Observes saved my life that day. The Toyo Observe GSI5 series is beyond superb, they are magnificent winter tires. Thank you.

My 16 year old niece is driving for the 1st time on her learner's permit here in Pennsylvania we live on a dirt road we just had our 1st ice storm for the year and we just tried to ease yes I fives on my Dodge ram 1504 by 4 and they did an outstanding job considering what we did to my truck we stopped on ice we started on ice we went on a Hill and stopped going down we went on a Hill going up stopped at 50% of the Hill started and derive would rear wheel and wet to the top then wait turned around and then we did 20 going down and stopped hard and it stopped it did not slide and then we were up the other side of the Hill where we were on ice fine light stopped and in we went on from there and it did not spin at did not fish tail it was an outstanding job for heard the learn how to drive a rear wheel drive vehicle with the right tire so think about when you buy tires tires are not tires it's what you have in your tires that make some work for you and I live in Pennsylvania thank
