The Nokian WR G3 SUV tire is an excellent winter all-weather tire. This new category of tires has more handling and ice & snow traction than all-Season tires.
With the Nokian WR G3 SUV 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 other features to give more 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 winter tire category with the WR class of tires. You get longer wear and dry traction than a pure winter tire, but more traction than a four-season tire.
The Nokian WR GS SUV tire specifically has a stronger casing and stiffer sidewall to handle the higher center of gravity and weight typical of SUVs. The Nokian WR GS SUV tire meets the Rubber Manufacturers of America, and the Tire & Rubber Association of Canada's Severe Snow Service requirements, and most sizes are branded with the Industry's mountain/snowflake symbol.
