The Nokian W+ tire is an all-weather winter tire and a good option if you live in a climate with cold winters, but only occasional snowfall. With the Nokian W+ tire you get high performance handling on dry roads, immediate feedback to steering input during evasive driving maneuvers, crisp braking, and long-tread-life. All this, with a little more siping and design elements for snow and ice traction.
Nokian started the all-weather winter tire category with the WR class of tires. The Nokian W+ is one of the original all-weather winter tires. The Nokia W+ features a state of the art Hakasiping technology which increases block rigidity for less tread squirm that can impact handling. This type of sip technology also helps to reduce traction degradation as the tire wears out, and the tread becomes shallower.
This tire works well on dry, cold roads, but has more snow traction and ice traction than four season tires, and longer tread-life than dedicated Winter tires. The best of both worlds for many climates!
