Aimed at light commercial vans, Federal's GLACIER GC01 offers maximum traction on ice and snow. Designed to handle the increased load-carrying capacity, this sturdy winter tire delivers confident ice and snow performance with long tread life, allowing drivers and fleets to tame the extremes of winters with ease. Also, the GLACIER GC01's lower rolling resistance generates substantial fuel savings, bringing fleets the optimum balance of fuel economy, longevity, and reliability.

Featuring unidirectional tread with V-shaped grooves and staggered trapezium sipes, the GLACIER GC01 provides firm and precise winter grip. Built for drivers of heavy-duty vans who require versatile performance in severe winter conditions, the rugged GLACIER GC01 can not only carry high loads of delivery with ease, but also provide durability with a good tread life thanks to its tie bar design in the shoulder area. Collectively, these elements complement each other, resulting in superior acceleration performance than other leading brands by five percent along with outstanding braking performance by 10 percent.

In addition to solid traction and durability, Federal also puts sustainability into its spinning action. Coupling with newly developed tread compounds, fleets can enjoy economical and environmental benefits from their daily dispatch as the GLACIER GC01 grants better mileage and less greenhouse gas emissions, thus achieving a triple win with cost effectiveness, customer satisfaction, and sustainability.
