Great Winter Tire Value: Yokohama iceGUARD iG52c

If you need excellent ice and snow traction on a budget, take a look at Yokohama's iceGUARD iG52c. This tire is new to our lineup this year and provides a very attractive price-point in the popular Studless Ice & Snow performance category.

Taking the popular 205/55R16 size for example, the class-leading Bridgestone Blizzak WS80 is $126. Compare this to the Yokohama option at $102 per tire and this saves almost $100 on a set. While this tire may not provide the same level of performance as a Blizzak tire, it does well compared to driving in winter conditions on all-season tires. Featuring advanced winter tire technology, the tire is proficient in cold temperatures on dry, wet, slushy and snow-covered roads.

iceGUARD iG52c tires feature Yokohama's BluEarth branding to identify an ecologically friendly series of tires that are designed to deliver environmentally, human and socially friendly solutions. The IG52c is available in a wide range of sizes, and performed very creditably in our ice rink testing this season. If you want the confidence of a true ice and snow tire at an affordable price, they are hard to beat.
