The Yokohama iceGUARD iG52c and Nokian WR G3 are good winter tires, according to Gear Patrol. Other highly rated winter tires include the BFGoodrich All-Terrain A/T KO2, Hankook Winter I*Pike and Bridgestone Blizzak WS80.
The Yokohama iceGUARD iG52c is an affordable winter tire with a tread surface made from silica, carbon and resin-coated shelled micro-bubbles. This tire provides secure traction on icy roads and also performs well in rain and sleet.
Unlike many other winter tires, the Nokian WR G3 is suitable for year-round driving because it resists heat damage. This preserves the integrity of the tread on hot pavement.
