OVERVIEW: The Firestone Winterforce 2 UV is a touring winter tire manufactured for crossover vehicles and SUVs. The UV in the model name stands for CUV and SUV.The tire ensures great winter weather traction. It has received the three mountain-peak and snowflake rating for its excellent performing capability even in the harshest winter weather. The directional tread design increases the winter weather road gripping ability, even when driving on ice and snow-covered roads. The cold temperatures compound ensures excellent traction by maintaining its flexibility in all winter conditions. The tire is pinned for studs and #11 studs can be added for additional ice traction. The wide circumferential grooves and open shoulder increase the water and slush eliminating ability to actively resist hydroplaning. The better traction and hydroplaning resistance boost the winter weather performing ability.The model is easily controlled. The continuous center rib keeps the tire’s contact with the road surface at all times. The center rib’s road contact greatly enhances the steering responsiveness and driving stability. The structure is stabilized against the driving pressure and the steering’s response time and accuracy are heightened to ensure a safer drive. The tread design’s high-density siping detail upgrades the braking ability. They increase the number of biting edges that firmly grip the road surface and manage to significantly shorten the braking distance. The upgraded controllability and braking distance improve the model’s winter weather handling.The Winterforce 2 UV features a twin steel belt internal structure that maintains the tire’s optimal shape under the driving pressure affecting it. This enables the tire to safely perform in all winter conditions. It also ensures that the tire closely follows the road surface and absorbs the shock of driving. The better road contact lowers the road vibrations felt in the vehicle’s cabin while the tires are in motion. The reduced road vibrations felt in the vehicle’s cabin guarantee a comfortable driving experience. Manufacturers recommend changing tires every 10 years. As long as tires are properly stored before they are sold, the year of their manufacture will not shorten their service life.
