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.
