Nokian T428844 WRG3 SUV 225/55R18XL 102H BSW
The Nokian WRG3 SUV tire is an excellent winter all-weather tire. This new category of tires has more handling and ice & snow traction than all-Season tires.
With the Nokian WR G3 SUV tire you get the ride comfort, long-tread-life, dry, wet and cold weather performance of an all-season tire, but with a little more siping and other features to give more snow and ice traction. Nokian's philosophy to making tires is that they should closely match the needs of the driver, vehicle and climate. For this reason, Nokian pioneered the all-weather winter tire category with the WR class of tires. You get longer wear and dry traction than a pure winter tire, but more traction than a four-season tire.
The Nokian WR GS SUV tire specifically has a stronger casing and stiffer sidewall to handle the higher center of gravity and weight typical of SUVs. The Nokian WR GS SUV tire meets the Rubber Manufacturers of America, and the Tire & Rubber Association of Canada's Severe Snow Service requirements, and most sizes are branded with the Industry's mountain/snowflake symbol.
Great all season snow tire
These tires are fantastic for people living in areas that get a decent amount of snow as well as very hot summers each year. Year round dry and wet performance as well as true snow tire capability. Smooth, quiet ride & better than expected off road capability as well. Definitely worth the price.
I have a rear wheel drive truck and traction is good on wet and slippery services. Smooth riding too.
Great ice/snow tires
Two months of Vermont winter have made me LOVE these tires. I rarely put my 4WD on. These tires easily navigate frozen dirt roads, snow, icy roads, rain -- whatever!
First time user of Nokian WRG3 SUV tires on 14 Suburu Outback. First the Cons; There is some hum, not enough to be annoying and I lost about 2-3 mpg to rolling resistance. Overall opinion is the performance of the tire outweighs these two issues. Fabulous traction and handling in snow with very good starting and stopping grip. Gravel dirt un-plowed lane to back out onto and start from dead stop halfway up incline driveway no problem. No comparison to All-season tires. So far not much ice to contend with this winter so cannot rate that. Tire is also very stable through rain and standing water puddles that you haven't noticed until you hit them. Good mileage rating for this type tire. Great feeling of control provides more confidence in winter weather. Also researched the company reputation which helped in direction I wanted to go. Would most certainly consider another set.
