The reputed Finnish car tyre maker Nokian has earned great respect for its ability to produce some of the most competitive cold weather tyres in the world. Nokian tyres are traditionally developed in Finland and tested beyond the Arctic Circle, on the maker’s famous 700 hectare test facility at Ivalo. The company also conducts research and development at other sites around the world, honing the warm-weather performance of its products.
Unsurprisingly, Nokian winter tyres consistently perform superbly in comparative tests. The Nokian WR D3 has achieved numerous test victories in recent years, greatly increasing the prestige of Nokian tyres. The Nokian WR A3 focuses more strongly on dry and wet grip, which makes it an excellent choice for performance cars. The new Nokian WR D4 has also enjoyed test success, and comes with the distinction of being the world’s first A-rated winter tyre for wet grip.
What is somewhat surprising nowadays is how far Nokian tyres have progressed beyond their traditional Nordic niche. Current Nokian summer tyres perform very convincingly indeed – the remarkable Nokian Line can boast of independent test success to rival its cold-weather stable mates. The sporty Nokian zLine blends the brand’s focus on all-weather safety with great dynamic feel and sharp handling.
Nokian all-season tyres have recently joined the line-up, with impressive results. In 2015, the new Nokian Weatherproof has claimed victory in comparative tyre tests carried out by prestigious magazines such as ‘Auto Express’ and ‘Auto Zeitung’. This adds Nokian tyres to the exclusive list of best choices for year-round usability.
