As one of the most economically priced winter tires available on the market, many drivers question if the Firestone Winterforce is a good fit for their vehicle. Does the tire have what it takes to compete with many of the newer generation front-runners?
While the tire isn't as soft as many Studless Ice & Snow tires, and therefore not as well suited for ice, the Winterforce features an aggressive pattern that can move its way through deep snow as well as any other winter tire. While other tires, such as the Bridgestone Blizzak line, offers a more complete package on both snow and ice traction, the Firestone Winterforce is a bargain in most sizes and will blow any all-season out of the water. Along with its slightly harder compound, comes longer treadwear, making the Winterforce a popular choice amongst consumers looking for multiple seasons worth of use.
While not the newest tire available, the Firestone Winterforce still has its place in the market and should be a tire to consider. While class-leading all-stars like the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80 and Michelin X-Ice Xi3. are two of the best tires you can purchase to handle winter conditions, the Firestone Winterforce is a great option and provides a good bang-for-your buck option.
