The Winterforce is Firestone’s Studdable Winter / Snow tire designed for the owners of coupes, sedans and minivans. Available in P-metric and Euro-metric Standard Load or Extra Load sizes, Winterforce tires are for drivers looking for traditional wintertime traction on dry, wet and snow-covered roads.
Firestone Winterforce radials share the tread design, compound, internal construction and dimensions of earlier Winterforce tires. This makes them fully compatible and allows them to be mixed and matched as necessary.
NOTE: Installing less than a complete set of new tires on four-wheel or all-wheel drive vehicles may require that new tire(s) be shaved to the same tread depth as existing tires to minimize driveline wear and/or damage.
Firestone Winterforce winter / snow radials feature a winter tread compound molded into an aggressive directional tread pattern with tread blocks that are siped, stepped and/or can be studded to offer the biting edges necessary to provide traction in snow and on ice. Independent tread blocks feature high-density siping to enhance grip in loose snow while the intermediate and shoulder tread blocks are molded to accept studs that further enhance traction on hard-packed snow and ice. The tire’s internal structure includes twin steel belts on top of a polyester casing to combine strength with ride quality.
Winterforce winter / snow radials meet the industry’s severe snow service requirements and are branded with the three-peak mountain snowflake (3PMSF) symbol.
