I'm a Yooper from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and plow now 13 months of the year. Ok that was a tiny exaggeration, but plowing with my truck I plow on and off road areas. This tire has been the best I've used and has been the only tire that lets me plow during light to moderate snow in 2WD without losing traction, and also on road driving in 2WD without much problem, saving my 4x4 and gas for actual necessity. It has a good, and long tread wear (doesn't melt fast in the summer) if you don't get them changed to summer tires right away, like other "blizcough" tires do. Over all if a tire could receive a perfect score this one would get it. No tire can get everything right but the Winterforce UV nails it pretty darn close.

These tires are AWESOME! These tires have amazing traction in the snowy weather. I never got even close to getting stuck this winter. Stop and go city traffic is easy with no loss of traction starting out or cornering. Going through a couple of inches of snow is no problem at all either. I was very impressed with the traction they get on the highway too. Using caution and driving at an appropriate speed for the bad weather I never felt like I was going to start sliding. I used to have to drive a lot slower in order to not start sliding. Now I can keep up or safely do the passing.

My 2013 Impreza Sport came with 17" V rated tires, which are excellent on dry or wet paved roads, but not great in snow/slush/mud. Since I had an extra set of 16" alloy wheels that fit this vehicle, I chose to purchase 4 Firestone Winterforce tires. I fortunately had them installed on Nov 12, and we had our first early season snow/ice event the morning of November 13th. To say I was stunned by the traction and handling these tires had in that mess is an understatement. Since I do not have the luxury of staying home on a "snow day," these new WINTER tires will make my travels much safer and maybe even a bit of fun now!

I ran this brand of tire five of the six years I had the car. Living in the country you need a good set of tires. Never had a problem driving, tires would dig in and go.

I have owned nothing but these tires on all my cars. They are great in the winters in PA, I never got stuck in them, don't ever stop making them please. Handle great, min road noise, deep tread. I have tried other brands of tires and NOTHING beats these, they are the only tires I would trust with my family in their care.

I chose this design of tire for the winter, because it's all about getting snow off the tires fast when driving and not having it stick to the tires. Winterforce tires clear your path even on 2 feet of snow with a low car, and it's like driving while plowing snow with your tires. It spits the snow off and leaves you a path to drive. Driving through ice is the worst and everyone gets scared, but you can take less caution with the Winterforce and worry less about slipping.

Love these tires. Great winters with low road noise, excellent grip and great responsiveness on snow! Bought them for my Subaru Impreza.

First of all I'm a pizza delivery driver so I drive all the time. At the beginning of this winter I had all seasons on and lost traction on snow and hit a curb. After that, I put 4 of these tires on my car and have been using them through this whole snowy season. I almost never lose traction in the snow with these on and if I do, it regains traction very quickly. I have had no problem climbing steep snowy hills (and passing pick up trucks on the way) so they work very well in snow. They are decent on ice but you still have to be very careful because they will slide sometimes. Any way they got me through this winter with no problems at all and I am very glad I made this purchase.

We really like the tires! They do very well on all different terrains!

We were looking at a harsh winter in a part of the state where the roller coaster roads might not be plowed in time for work, and though the Ranger is hearty, she's only two wheel drive. All season tires are fine to a point, but the roller coaster to work was going to be a challenge. Add studded Firestone Winterforce snow tires, and so far the challenge has been met! The Ranger sticks to the road, and we're sticking with you, Firestone!

I have been really pleased with these. Superb in the snow. No noise increase and no MPG decrease. They have even done well in a recent ice storm even without studs. I feel much safer with the Winterforces on.

Purchased a new 2013 Ford Escape FWD and after the first snowstorm I wanted to sell it. I was all over the road with no control of the vehicle. I only had 6,000 miles on it. I needed to do something. The Escape handled awesome until winter hit. So I decided to put Firestone Winterforce tires on it. It's a completely different vehicle now. I have the confidence to travel almost anywhere with the new tires! Every vehicle should have a set of these on for winter! Don't hesitate... Put these on your vehicle!!!

I have owned approximately 12 sets of these tires in various sizes over the past years. They are a great value and hold up well. I live in a very rural area, and a trip anywhere involves driving several miles on dirt roads that can be fairly good to almost impassible, depending on weather and maintenance. I have had other winter tires suffer tread separations and other problems, but as of yet have not had a Winterforce failure. I put these on all of my kids vehicles each winter, and they tell me they are extremely pleased as well. My daughter was sliding off the dirt and paved roads and getting stuck with her previous tires, but after driving approx 50,000 miles on three different sets of Winterforce, she has not had one problem. I have never been a fan of Firestone tires, but I'm sold on these.

I am driving these full time on my little truck, and they are wearing just dandy. These are nice tires. I would definitely get them again.

These are the best tires I've ever bought and will keep buying the same brand. Awesome tires. Love, love Firestone Winterforce tires!!!!!!!!!!!!

Awesome winter tire!!!! This is a 305 Camaro with an open rear differential and 4 speed auto trans. Handles winters better than my wife's 2004 Grand Prix with new all-seasons on it! No weight in the back. Great while going uphill in deep snow. Doesn't slide while braking normal. Even during panic stops, they dig in very nicely. Handles snow like an all-season tire handles dry pavement. Even took it for a lap around the clay track. Took the corners without even sliding!!!
VERY highly recommend. Didn't even stud them!!

30000 miles and still look new. Quiet, great traction in snow, wet or dry. Best tire for the money even if you don't drive in snow! Nice flat tire profile like a sport tire. Handles great.

Best snow tire out there, period. 3 seasons now and still love them! Better tire than all of the popular choices.

Purchased these with a winter wheel package and have not had any issues at all. Excellent traction in snow, slush, and slick conditions. Tire does well for winter driving on thruway and rural roads. No negative effect on mpg in the Fusion Hybrid with the change from oem tire noticed. I'm buying a new set this winter and the price for what you get is great. I love them.

Bought these for my wife's daily driver, she has a 45 min. to 1 hr drive to work 6 days a week, and I feel better knowing she has good snow tires. Going on the third winter and they look new! Loud on dry pavement but snow and ice traction make it worth it! With these tires on a 4WD CRV with traction control, the little SUV is almost unstoppable. Would highly recommend and will buy again.

Unbelievable difference from OEM (so-called) "all season" tires! If it snows any considerable amount, my neighbors are parking their cars and walking. I climb right up the hill and have no problem getting home. I actually considered trading the car in for a 4x4 and thought I would try the Winterforce tires first and cannot believe the difference these tires have made. Very Impressed! Nice job, Firestone!

Outstanding tire at a great price. They wear well for snow tires. Good predictable grip even on black ice. This is the second car that I have put these tires on and I would buy them again.

If you drive in winter, buy these tires! I have been using them for almost 10 years on every type of vehicle you can imagine. On the vehicles equipped with 4x4, you won't need to engage 4x4 most of the time - just these tires will get you through. I highly recommend these tires!

When you have to go in the snow buy these tires. A quite winter tire that gives good dry and wet road performance. They really shine in the snow.
