Nokian Weatherproof

Proper winter grip, reliable performance

All-Weather tyres – safe year-round driving comfort

The new high-performance Nokian Weatherproof family of winter tyres will put an end to the tyre change roulette that bothers drivers each spring and autumn. These top examples of Nokian Tyres' revolutionary All-Weather concept combine reliable winter safety with the precise driving stability and firm handling of the Nokian summer tyres. Top-notch innovations from the world's northernmost tyre manufacturer ensure that the Nokian Weatherproof tyre range offers comfortable driving during all seasons.

The multi-talented Nokian Weatherproof product family is designed for drivers who require a safe option for the snow and slush but who also want to drive efficiently and effortlessly in the summer. The Nokian Weatherproof product family offers durable performance for Central European roads and streets, and it offers sizes for modern passenger cars, SUVs and vans alike. All of the sizes have the Snowflake symbol (3PMSF), which indicates that the tyres have been officially approved for winter use.

The comprehensive size selection for passenger cars ranges all the way from 13 inches up to 18 inches. The range that is tailored for heavier SUV use covers sizes from 16 to 18 inches The speed ratings for this modern product family designed for year-round use are T, H and V. A significant portion of the sizes is marked XL for the highest possible load capacity. The range for delivery vehicles and vans covers sizes from 14 to 16 inches (speed index N, R and T). The size selection of this new Nokian Weatherproof C has different tread models for larger vehicles and lighter loads.

The new Nokian Weatherproof family offers one of the most extensive product range on the market for All-Weather segment. The Nokian Weatherproof will be available at tyre retailers in the autumn of 2015. The most important market area for the new products will be Central Europe.

Safe in the winter, precise in the summer

The successful Nokian All-Weather concept from the world's northernmost tyre manufacturer is now being extended into the European market. The core of the concept is to offer a functional solution for drivers who want to say goodbye to the seasonal tyre changes but still want the best possible protection for snowy, slushy and rainy roads on every day of the year.

Nokian Tyres' expertise in tyre structure and rubber compounds can be seen and felt in the new product family. The innovative product development also required thousands of hours of testing at the test track of the world's northernmost tyre manufacturer in Ivalo, north of the Arctic Circle. The excellent summer characteristics received their final form after the Nokian Weatherproof underwent a strict testing programme on the high-speed tracks in Germany and Spain.

The versatile Nokian Weatherproof is a winter tyre with excellent grip characteristics. At the same time, it is also a summer tyre that rolls precisely during hot summer conditions. According to our tests, the Nokian Weatherproof product family is much safer and more versatile than the typical all-season tyres. The snowflake symbol also indicates that the tyre is suitable and officially approved for winter use, says Product Development Manager Olli Seppälä from Nokian Tyres.

Centre Block Channeling - Excellent grip on snow, effective slushplaning prevention

Every millimetre on the aggressive tread pattern of the durable and high-performance Nokian Weatherproof has a specific role. The steep surface geometry of the centre area, with its large tread blocks, has been carefully optimised to ensure excellent grip on snowy and wet roads. The axe-like V-shaped tread blocks firmly grip the snowy road. The heavy siping and the grading of the tread blocks add more gripping edges and further improve grip. The wedge-like rises between the centre and shoulder blocks strengthen the precise steering feel and the thoroughly tested, excellent grip on snow.

The deep and open channels on the centre blocks (Centre Block Channeling) increase grip under extreme winter conditions. The channels also operate at full power under wet conditions. They effectively push slush and water away from between the tyre and the road, which effectively prevents slushplaning and aquaplaning. The excellent aquaplaning properties are rounded off by the stylish polished grooves that accelerate the removal of water and slush.

Driving stability, grip and durability regardless of the temperature

Tests show that the Nokian Weatherproof rolls lightly and precisely even on sun-scorched dry asphalt. The stiff shoulder blocks offer driving stability even at high speeds and ensure, for their part, that the new product will stop easily and quickly even on rain-soaked roads.

The greatest challenge in terms of material development was the extreme temperature variations, from dozens of degrees below zero to scorching heat waves. The tread compound of the Nokian Weatherproof is tailored for varying conditions. It works wonderfully along a wide range of temperatures and can withstand harsh wear even in hot summer weather. Winter grip is excellent at temperatures near zero and slightly below it. The next-generation silica compound also allows for good wet grip and low rolling resistance, which reduces fuel consumption.

New Nokian Weatherproof SUV - tailored stability for SUV use

Several effective innovations support the thread of the sturdy SUV model. A special Stiffness Zone was designed in the shoulder area between the tread blocks in order to stiffen the tyre shoulder. The Stiffness Zone improves precision and calmness especially on dry roads. The new Nokian Weatherproof SUV can carry and manage its high wheel loads surely and firmly on ice, snow, bare roads or even the ever treacherous slush. The tread compound is even stiffer than in the passenger car model, which allows for an especially accurate steering feel.

The carefully selected and tested structural solutions make the Nokian Weatherproof a balanced mover. The tighter wrapping of the nylon belts on the shoulder areas stiffens the steel belt structure and reduces the movement of the tread blocks. This can be felt in the precise steering feel during high-speed cornering or lane changes.

Driving Safety Indicator - Exact information on tyre condition

The location and pressure indicators on the Nokian Weatherproof's sidewall info area improve winter safety and user comfort. The information area allows for recording the correct inflation pressure and installation location during tyre change. Safety is improved further by a new section that can be used to record the tightening torque of the wheel nuts for alloy wheels.

As before, the tread surface has the Driving Safety Indicator (DSI), patented by Nokian Tyres. The numbers on the centre surface of the tyre indicate how much of the main groove depth remains on the tread. The snowflake symbol of the Winter Safety Indicator (WSI) remains visible to a groove depth of four millimetres. Once the snowflake has worn out, the driver should purchase new winter tyres to ensure sufficient safety.

Nokian Weatherproof – Beyond four seasons

Superior on snow, excellent grip even on wet roads

Durable high performance throughout the year

Extremely stable and comfortable driving behaviour

Main innovations:

Tailored centre area. Excellent winter grip. The steep surface geometry of the centre area has been carefully optimised to ensure excellent grip on snowy and wet roads. The axe-like V-shaped tread blocks firmly grip the snowy road. The heavy siping and the grading of the tread blocks add more gripping edges and further improve grip. The wedge-like rises between the centre and shoulder blocks strengthen the precise steering feel and excellent grip on snow.

Centre Block Channeling. Extreme grip, effective slushplaning prevention. The deep and open channels on the centre blocks increase grip under extreme winter conditions. The channels effectively push slush and water away from between the tyre and the road, which effectively prevents slushplaning and aquaplaning.

Nokian Weatherproof rubber compound. Tailored safety and durability. The tread compound is tailored for varying conditions; it works wonderfully along a wide range of temperatures and can withstand harsh wear even in hot summer weather. Winter grip is excellent at temperatures near zero and slightly below it. The next-generation silica compound also allows for good wet grip and low rolling resistance, which reduces fuel consumption.

Stiffness Zone. Balanced and stable driving. A special Stiffness Zone was designed in the shoulder area of the Nokian Weatherproof SUV in order to stiffen the tyre shoulder. The Stiffness Zone improves precision and calmness especially on dry roads.

Polished Grooves. Safety on wet roads. Polished grooves facilitate the removal of snow and slush.

EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes

EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes

The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.

Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.

The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.

With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.

Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.

Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.

Very sure grip especially on roundabouts in wet or icy conditions, excellent on country roads, little bit of road noise on motorways but not so you really notice. All round an excellent tyre in the Wet of dry.Better grip on snow that I thought possible, as live in Scotland it's been tested a few times.
26.02.2021 from Paul hardy
These tyres grip the road like treacle and are forging in any high speed manoeuvre! I have to drive a B road every day for 40 mls per day, which has many sharp bends and wonderful inclines and desents. During the recent-9C and very icy and heavy snow at 5am in the morning, my car still outperformed all other cars for grip including 4x4's ! These tyres are expensive but my life is worth more!
18.02.2021 from Paul
Very impressed with these during the recent cold/snow. No wheel spin at all when moving off and good traction at all times
18.02.2021 from Norman Noy
These tyres were purchased for my wife's car who is an NHS Community Nurse who gets tall over in all weathers, we started using all-season tyres as summer tyres which they seem to fit all new cars are useless in snow and ice, really for safety all-season tyres should be fitted to all new cars as standard, plus the fact we live quite high up and when the snow falls one thing that is conspicuous by its absence is grit lorries since we started using all-season tyres they have been a great asset and these Nokian Weatherproof are proving to be every bit as good if not better than any I have had, on my car I have Michelin cross season tyres the first time I have had them and they seem to be doing okay but they don't get testing the Nokian Weatherproof have had on the wife's car
