Firestone Winterforce UV review
What is it?
The Firestone Winterforce UV is a studdable winter/snow tire designed for light duty crossover, sport utility vehicles and pickup trucks. In recent years, the Winterforce UV has become perhaps the most popular studdable winter/snow tire for SUV's and trucks, and for good reason. Its winter performance capabilities are well-established and pretty darn awesome, and the Winterforce UV brings affordability to the table as well.
Strengths and weaknesses?
Like the associated Firestone Winterforce LT, the Winterforce UV delivers superb snow traction in both light and deep snow conditions. The Winterforce UV also provides solid dry and wet road condition performance, and a comfortable ride.
Despite being a dedicated snow/winter tire, the Winterforce UV can handle rainy conditions and dry roads quite well.
It's probably not the absolute quietest studdable winter/snow option available, but the road noise isn't a deal breaker by any means.
How does the Winterforce UV compare?
The Winterforce UV ranks third overall out of four studdable winter/snow tires per Tire Rack user feedback, but the ranking is a bit misleading. There is virtually no performance difference between the Winterforce UV and class-leading Winterforce LT, and user satisfaction is equally high with the Winterforce UV. All in all, the Winterforce UV compares very favorably against any other studdable winter/snow tire in its class.
Anything else to know?
The Firestone Winterforce UV is perhaps the most popular studdable winter/snow tire on the market, and it has garnered numerous repeat and loyal customers.
Simply put, the Winterforce UV is as close as you'll get to snow/winter performance certainty, and at a competitive price. We highly recommend.
Install the Winterforce UV in sets of four only, or you'll be dealing with a potentially hazardous handling imbalance.
