New Nokian WR D3 winter tyre is „very recommendable“ in the winter tyre tests 2011 of the renowned German car magazines „auto motor und sport“ and „Auto Zeitung“.
The Nokian is the best on snow and in the dry. It clearly wins the driving tests on snow. „Currently best winter properties compared to its competitors, good driving behaviour in the dry“, the judgement of „auto motor und sport“ praises. Maximum score, shortest braking distance, fastest handling time, and strongest traction on snow for the Finn.
Nokian WR D3 is awarded price-performance winner being the most low-priced of the very recommendable premium winter tyres with a price of 112 Euros compared to the others which cost around 133 Euros.
Showing excellent results, it clearly wins the snow tests: 100 points of a possible score of 100 with „auto motor und sport“, 142 of a possible score of 150 with „Auto Zeitung“. „Outstanding properties on snow characterize Nokian WR D3“, „Auto Zeitung“ summarizes. „Brand new Nokian WR D3 is a highlight in this assessment.
”The skill to achieve top scores in the tyre test is to have ideal results on all road conditions,“ „auto motor und sport“ explains. „Or at least to be strongly outstanding in one area so that slight weaknesses can be compensated in the scoring system under certain circumstances.
The best example is given by new Finnish Nokian WR D3 which indeed on wet roads performs relatively poor due to feeble aquaplaning results but clearly sets the benchmark on snow with the shortest braking distance, the best traction and a very well-tempered driving behaviour: 100 points of a possible score of 100 for the Nokian which not only achieves the best lap time on the snowy handling lane but also drives effortless and precise at the same time.“
German automobile association ADAC ascertains the Nokian’s strengths: „Top mark 1,8 in the dry“. Its handling is outstanding, marked 1,6. With the good marks 2,1 on snow and 2,3 on ice it performs well even in other driving disciplines and backs up its high safety. Its eco friendliness is proven by the green marks 2,0 in fuel consumption and wearing. Mark 1 is the best mark and 6 the worst mark in the German mark system.
Durable Nokian WR D3 is tailored for medium-sized and small family cars and drivers who value safe, economic driving. Nokian WR A3, on the other hand, is optimised for larger and more powerful vehicles with a special emphasis placed on the tyre's sensitive driving response even at higher speeds.

Winter tyres are currently not mandatory in Britain. Traditionally, they have been regarded as specialised snow tyres, and snowy winters are less common in the UK than in other parts of Europe. However, most modern products of this class are actually best described as cold weather tyres, and are designed to work effectively in all road conditions at low temperatures.
Numerous tests have been performed by manufacturers and prestigious independent organisations - such as ‘Auto Express’ magazine, one of the biggest supporters of winter tyres in the UK – in cold dry and wet conditions, as well as on ice, slush, and snow. The conclusion is that modern studless winter tyres are far superior to summer tyres even on wet roads when temperatures drop below 7°C.
Also, on snow, ice, or when temperatures are lower than -5°C, these cold weather tyres are clearly superior to all-season rubber of similar quality. Please note, however, that using studded tyres with metal studs on public roads is illegal in Britain – so studless models are probably for you.
TyreSafe, one of the UK’s leading tyre safety organisations, is an active advocate of winter tyres. They point out that, although damp roads may look similar in warm and cold weather, true cold weather tyres perform much better in such conditions at low temperatures. The broad consensus among experts is that winter tyres are the best choice for the cold season, even when snow is not a common issue – and especially when it is!
Cold weather tyre technology has advanced considerably from the times when such products mainly relied on studs for better grip on frozen surfaces. Today’s winter tyres employ advanced rubber compound formulas with higher natural rubber and silica content. These prevent hardening at low temperatures, ensuring superior grip and load management.
A special, more open tread pattern is also important for adequate traction and control on ice, snow, or slush. Winter tyre treads display aggressive-looking arrays of wide grooves, sipes, and micro-sipes that allow them to keep their footing on the snow. The open treads are also effective at resisting aquaplaning, as they can easily move out of the way large quantities of fluid.
