Overcome all the surprises that winter has in store
The new Nokian WR SUV 4 winter tyre is a safe and reliable choice for sport utility vehicles and crossover models. It is specially developed for Central European SUV drivers ensuring the best performance on snow, slush and heavy rain offering superb wet grip and precise handling. The robust and durable structure combined with Aramid Sidewalls ensure that the tyre is stable and can withstand the impacts and cuts that may occur while driving.
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.

07.01.2023fromRichard Woosnam Regularly drive in UK and Europe, both South and North, therefore need tyres h that can cope with a wide variety of road and weajther conditions. No practical time to change tyres one day dry roads, next day snow and ice, especially off-road where may go from abrasive tarmac to wet slippery clay slopes.
I expect a 4 x4 to be able to cope with most conditoins and not get stuck, the tyrpes transfer the power and direction to the surface and these tyres are the best I have used for traction, wear, noise overall and dont add to the roll of the vehicle thanks to the wall strength.
I will stick to these tyres all year round.
18.03.2022fromAndrew Barker I've had no problems with these tyres,they have performed perfectly on snow and ice,also wet and dry conditions no problems.they are not to noisy either,I can recommend these for a Land Cruiser
15.02.2022fromBob Ball Not had snow but previous experience with these tyre on Nissan X trail was very good .
I have used Nokian tyres for a number of years on several vehicles and found them to be the best performers I've ever had.
45000 miles on front axle in X trail , fantastic!
