The Nokian WR is a high performance all-weather winter tire and a good option if you live in a climate with cold winters, but only occasional snowfall.
With the Nokian WR 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 WR is the original all-weather tire that meet the Rubber Manufacturers of America, and the Tire & Rubber Association of Canada's Severe Snow Service requirements. Most sizes are branded with the Industry's mountain/snowflake symbol.
