Firestone Winterforce Studded Winter Tires
Though known mostly for high-performance summer rubber like the Firehawk, Firestone makes a great studdable winter tire. The tread pattern of the Winterforce may resemble an all-season tire, but upon closer inspection reveals tread blocks packed with sipes to enhance snow traction. The Winterforce accepts TSMI #12 studs for additional traction on ice and slippery roads.
It’s important to remember that dry and wet traction decreases with studded tires, and that driving on dry roads with studded tires can damage the road surface. Keep these restrictions in mind, and the Firestone Winterforce is a great way to get studded winter tires for your car if you’re on a tight budget.
