The Nokian WRG3 tire is an all-weather winter tire. This is a new category of tires with more snow traction than you get with other Nokian All-Season tires. You get longer wear and dry traction than a pure winter tire, but more traction than a four-season tire. With the Nokian WRG3 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 design elements for 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 tire category with the WR class of tires. The Nokian WRG3 tire comes in sizes for all types of vehicles, and meets 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. A good option to pure snow and ice tire, if you are driving a lot on dry, cold roads.
First time buying these tires. I've gotten some of the best tires out there an they don't come close to these. I put these tires on my 05 Subaru Outback sedan 3.0r. Snow traction is awesome and I've never had better tires for ice except studded. Wet traction is phenomenal and same goes for dry and hot roads. These tires are worth every penny! When it comes to a car I will never buy another tire again. Nokian has there own website so you an do some research yourself. Amazing tires!!!
Good overall tires. Gives me confidence in snow and rain. Firm stopping power. Noise is not so bad. I dont even could tell the difference with my old tores when it comes to road noise. I'd buy again for my wife's car.
