The Nokian WRA3 tire is a high performance all-weather winter tire. This is a new category of tires for more snow traction than All-Season tires. With the Nokian WRA3 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. A good option if you live in a climate with cold winters, want a dedicated winter tire, but you only get occasional snow fall.
Nokian started the all-weather winter tire category with the WR class of tires. The Nokian WRA3 tire has an asymetric tread pattern and traction levels 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.
