Toyo Observe GSi-6 tire - picture of all three logos

PREMIUM WINTER TIRE FOR PASSENGER CARS, VANS AND SUVS, LIGHT TRUCKS

The Observe GSi-6 featuring Toyo’s signature studless Microbit Technology™, is designed to handle the harshest Canadian winters.

3 VARIATIONS OF ONE PATTERN!

Toyo wanted to ensure the Observe GSi-6 was engineered to suit the various vehicle segments and applications. To achieve this, slight variations were incorporated into the construction and design to address the unique attributes of passenger cars, CUV’s, SUV’s and light trucks.

ADVANCED COMPOUNDING

High levels of silica along with a new high grip polymer blended in the rubber compound keeps the tire pliable during colder temperatures while also improving wet weather traction.

Improved performance not only in snow and slush, but on ice and cold wet roads as well. How did Toyo Tire accomplish all of this? Traction from advanced technology.

No road hazard protection.

We bought a set of 4 in October of 2022. About two weeks ago, we ran over an object that destroyed the tire. No compensation and full price for a new tire...$250.00 That's not performance. No more Toyo for me.

Sorry you had an accident and damaged one of your tires beyond repair. I have forwarded your concern tot he regional manager to see if there is anything that can be done for your situation. They will reach out to you with the email address supplied. As a recommendation, since this is not a fault of the tire, we do not supply a road hazard, however when shopping around many dealer chains offers this protection a. If you are worried that this will happen again, I suggest that you purchase their protection policy in the future. I do believe however that you find the performance of the Observer GSi-6 to be excellent in all winter conditions.

GSI-5 Owner

Why is it not in the top 10 winter tires 2022 ? no mention of this brand or type. 3 star..I wanted GSI-6 was not available for my car model at the time :( ...otherwise I would give 4 star. can't give 5 star..not in the top 10 **** OK Tire recommended them where I got them. they talked me out of Blizzak. Only used them 2 seasons....so far didn't fail it . Noisy on the road..but a smooth unusual hum.

Achat de 4 pneus GSI-6 LS en novembre 2022 parcouru à ce jour environ 600 km installer sur VUS 2023 ...... très très déçu de ces pneus . En effet après avoir fait à deux endroits different le balancement il y a toujours de la vibration sur le véhicule ce qui n'est pas le cas avec les pneus d'origine et pour le confort de roulement alors très moyen . Alors j'ose espérer que la satisfaction du client est une priorité chez Toyo ..................

Outstanding tires!

We purchased the Observe GSi-6 LS winter tires from our local OK Tire center in Winnipeg this past October 2022 and I must say without a doubt the performance of these tires is outstanding. Driving on the highway, these tires are very quiet with absolutely no road noise at all. Winter traction at icy intersections and in deep snow is first-rate. The best set of tires we have owned and highly recommend them.

Great winter tyre

Put these on my 2020 Grand Cherokee Altitude, only a V6 but I had no issues, got through a white out blizzard in the Trans Canada high way going to Bc and back to Calgary, obviously had to drive to conditions. However I didn’t feel out of control once, felt nice and grounded to the road, even through the worse parts of the highway, Rogers pass, and the Coquihalla. Would recommend these too anyone looking for a reliable winter tyre.

GSI - 6 HP Review is a Smash

The Toyo GSI- 6 HP is a terrific snow tire. The winters in Calgary AB can be harsh and this tire still performs well into the -30*C on ice and snow. Braking is predictable and rapid. Accelleration on an FWD biased AWD system is better than any other snow tire to date on this car (3rd set). The only rating not in top slot would be cornering stability on ice/frozen roads. There is a tedancy to promote drifting more so than other tires on the same vehicle. However, if you're prepared for it, it's not an issue (or if you like to "play").

Mon deuxième ensemble de pneus pneus Toyo Observe. Excellent pneu, silencieux. Le seule pneu que j'aie eu qui fait vraiment une différence sur la glace.

J'ai eu plusieurs marques de pneus d'hiver dans le passé. Définitivement le Toyo Observe est le meilleur sur toute la ligne et spécialement sur la glace. Presqu'aussi bon que des crampons.

Very good winter tires

I have had these Toyo GSI-6 tires on my cars for years now. I have had other winter tires but they do not come anywhere near the performance of Toyo GSI-6 winter tires. I used them on my Ford Escape for a number of years and now on my Ford Edge and Ford Focus. I have noticed that the handling in all types of weather is much better, I feel more secure than other winter tires I have had as they just seem to track and stick to road better. These tires are very quiet as I changed my summer tires on my Ford Focus to my Toyo GSI-6 winters and the Toyo's are quite noticeably quieter. And when I changed my summers to the Toyo's on my Edge they were at about the same level of sound to me but quite quiet. These tires seem to stand up to wear very well. So much so that I have left my Toyo's winters on my Focus all year long because I drive the Focus very little. And I find they have great traction on hot or rainy summer roads. And I have to run my Toyo's longer than my summers on my Edge but I do not see much more wear than my summers. I believe there is no tire that could be created to beat winter driving but I feel these Toyo GSI-6 are at a better level than other winter tires I know of. I would recommend these tires.

Thanks for the review "Alongtheway"! We happy to hear that our Observe GSi-6 provided you with the winter traction that you need while still providing a quiet, comfortable ride

Made it to 10 years!! Great tires!!

I purchased the previous version of these tires almost 10 years ago and mounted them to dedicated winter rims. I have had the tires balanced each year and have driven in some pretty poor weather. Back country roads and drifty roads are no match for these tires and wet and icy conditions are also handled very well. I just ordered the GCI6 (was GCI5) and looking forward to using them for the next 5-10 years too! Recommend to any Canadian driver!

Ces pneus m’ont sûrement sauvé la vie!

Perte de contrôle sur la 137 lors tempête de neige. Je pars vers le fossé je ramène en voyant la neige soufflée par les pneus comme dans les pub et horreur un immense camion de gravier dans le sens inverse devant moi je réussi à ramener la voiture dans la bonne voie! Mon cœur bat j’ai tout de suite compris que mes pneus Toyo Observe m’ont sauvé la vie . Ils m’ont duré 3 ans, cette année je rachète les mêmes. Merci aux gens qui font de si bon pneus!

On se sent en sécurité, malgré un début d'hiver difficile - 2021

Décembre 2021. On y goûte, et pas à peu près...Neige, pluie verglaçante, gadoue. Mon garagiste me conseil les pneus Toyo, et je ne le regrette pas. La sécurité de ma famille passe avant tout, et je me sens très en confiance avec ces nouveaux pneus!

Very impressed. Will buy again.

I bought these tires for my wife’s Rav4. We just had a lot of rain then the temp dropped and changed to snow. Then froze overnight to make very icy roads. She was very impressed with these tires. Having lived in the Cariboo area of British Columbia for 30 years we have had quite a few sets of winter tires on our vehicles. I honestly think these are the best we’ve had. When my current winter tires on my truck need replacement I will get a set for it as well. PS - new to us so treadwear is unknown

Awesome

I put these tires on my SUV and have had 4 whole winters out of them!. They handle great, and I feel like I can drive in any weather ( and Halifax gets lots of freezing rain, slush, and snow). They were awesome and I will buy then again when they wear out!

I live in a snowy mountains area of British Columbia and have driven on Toyo tires for many years. I feel safe and secure on the road and have never had any problems.

I highly recommend Toyota tires to anyone who asks when I drive on.

Excellent tire

I currently have these on my Nissan Armada and really push these tires to their limits on logging roads ice roads and make your own road. They never scared me and they are very predictable in ride comfort and traction. If anything they boost your overall confidence in winter driving conditions. I pull a 27ft trailer and love these tires for harsh canadian winters. My personal downfall is they don't have my exact size in a 275/70/18 in a passenger tire for my truck. I 100 % aprove these. toyo stands by there product and warranty if ever you need there help. Yes i have tried other brands but no other product has ever surpassed Toyo GSI 5 or 6 in my driving career to date.
