The Nokian Nordman 5 SUV is a winter tire that is especially designed for SUVs that operate more frequently on snow covered roads. Nokian Nordman tires are their best for snow traction. They have plenty of sipes and pliable rubber for grip on ice and dry roads, but the tread pattern is more open. These open grooves make it optimized for deep snow. Snow and slush is evacuated efficiently from the tread for really good traction in conditions that other snow tires could not handle.
When not in deep snow, the Nokian Nordman 5 SUV provides exceptional driving stability for a tire with such an open lug tread pattern. The Nokian Nordman 5 SUV tire is studdable, so while designed for deep snow traction, it has polished main grooves, a highly wear resistant rubber compound and a dual block structure on the shoulders that ensures the tire performs well on bare winter roads as well.
