The Nokian WR D3 is a winter tyre that performs exceptionally well in extreme weather conditions. It has been created by the Finnish company Nokian, which specialises in tyres designed for this time of year. The model features a directional tread pattern with grooves shaped so as to help quickly and effectively disperse water, mud and snow from under the wheels. This all means that driving on Nokian WR D3 tyres is exceptionally safe, whatever the weather.
The model is made from an innovative compound noted for its excellent flexibility at low temperatures. The tyre therefore has an increased contact area with the ground, resulting in better grip. The compound used to make the tyre is also very durable and lighter than traditional compounds. The designers have therefore managed to decrease rolling resistance in the Nokian WR D3, which in turn reduces fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
Reduced fuel consumption and the extended service life of the tyre mean that the Nokian WR D3 is very economical to run. The model also features an optimum distribution of forces within the tyre. This means that the tread wears slowly and drivers can enjoy the full range of performance features of the Nokian WR D3 for its entire lifetime, without having to worry about a gradual loss of grip or a deterioration in performance. The Nokian WR D3 is the ideal solution for drivers who like to feel safe and secure behind the wheel, even in severe winter conditions, and who are looking for an uncompromising performance and short braking distances.
Nokian is an independent Finnish tyre manufacture. The company is particularly renowned for its winter tyres, which perform very well in extreme conditions. It has been designed for the demanding Scandinavian weather, which is why it also handles Polish conditions extremely well. The Nokian production lines produce tyres for passenger cars, agricultural machinery, bicycles, vans, lorries and tyres intended for specialist industrial and forestry machinery. The company's production plants are located in Finland and Russia.

Nokian WR D3 is a brilliant tire, I live in Ireland and having 100 mile round trip on country roads and motorway every now and
then. I first tried Nokian tires on my old Merc 190E, the WRA3 were a super tire even in heavy snow in an old car fitted on the
rear wheels. I also put these on my wife's Citroen C3 HDI, I had a 2005 Subaru Outback that had them as well. The Citroën
really holds the road well in all conditions. We drive on winter tires all year round with both cars, These tyres maintain a
good grip despite heavy raining conditions. In frost and snow tires are superb too. Feeling very secure having them.I feel like
i can literally go anywhere despite the conditions.
Once i bought Hankook Winter I have on my Evo ICEPT Audi A4 TDI130 Before 2002, I could not afford Nokians back then but
looking back, I would have waited and spent extra. € 150 as I 'have little faith in the Hankook, they remain well suited to
heavy rains and when the tempetature in 7deg below, but nothing like the quality of Nokian WR D3. So far, we have made 13.000
miles on our current tires, wear is excellent but maybe I could swap them earlier, since the front are wearing faster than the
rer ones show much more wear than the rear so I. Incidentally summer, I raise the pressure to 42psi to reduce wear, now its
winter I turn to 32psi. I will change my Hankooks in October 2015 for a series of Nokians that I will have more faith in. The
tires can be expensive, but they are the only thing that separates us from the road, i don't think that most people in Ireland
know what are the benefits of winter tyres, but given our low winter weather and heavy rains associated with treated poorly
maintained back roads they make perfect sense.
I got Nokian WR D3 by the size 185/60/14 82T Russian production. In its opinion, I will only refer to other winter tires which
i was using, and were using Goodyear UltraGrip 6, Fulda Kristall Montero, Kleber Krisalp HP and BFGoodrich Winter GForce. I
chose this tire because judging from reviews of the users, the price and the fact that in tests has been assessed as a
versatile tire, made it look very good. Upon delivery their appearence is disappointing. Definitely do not look like the
premium class. There were no problems with balancing. The Nokian WR D3 is rather quiet. more quiet than Goodyear, but louder
than Kleber and BFGoodrich that I have on 2 other cars. Braking, steering, road grip on both wet and dry conditions is very
much in order, and the best of all the tires we had. In this respect. Perhaps in the Continental test it comes out better, but
the tests aren't always objective. In addition, the road is not a test track and the differences of 0.5 or 1 m for the average
user are virtually unnoticeable. Pretty good with suppressing road inequalities. I can safely recommend this tire, even to
those who ride quite aggressively. The tire behaves predictably, and well, you can sense when its grip ends. For the price I am
most pleased. In my opinion, rivaling performance tire Goodyear and Continental tyres for less money, but slightly worse looks.
If someone depends on making the best ratio quality / durability / price it would be a good choice.
I'm giving an opinion on Nokian WR D3 after testing them in typical winter conditions. My rating relates to the size 185/60/14.
Tires have been produced in Russia. On the snow they are cool. Both start-off and braking without any issues. ABS triggers very
rarely. Traction on the slush and the snow also very good. After the intentional introduction of the car into a skid feel that
the tyre slips for just a moment and then firmly grips. Very predictable when it comes to the grip - easy to handle.
Braking on wet roads typically falls slightly worse. On a dry road or unparalleled. Very good with suppressing road
Avarage noise level. Kind of premium class and on the tire looks. I drove once on the German budget brand tires called Platin
and they looked better. But these are traits that do not directly affect the security so you can live with them. When it comes
to driving parameters I think that is a very good tire for a good price. So far I have used the Fulda Kristall Montero winter
tires, Goodyear Ultragrip 7, Kleber Krisalp HP and BF Goodrich Winter GFrorce. Nokian tire is definitely the best of the ones I
mentioned. When installing Nokian WR D3 wthere were no problems with balancing. Weights have max. 10g, so i do not confirm,
alleged Russia Nokian tyres to be having had problems with balancing. I would definitely recommend!
I bought Nokian WR D3 after long deliberation. I have replaced my old GY UG7, used for two years. I have family in central Poland, and often travel the route Szczecin - wiochy near Warsaw, and this year there was no shortage of snow there ;) tires much better than the above mentioned, in the snow fighting bravely and allow you to feel really safe. For wet (rain) conditions provoked lose grip of course, but they do it in a very gentle and predictable manner. There is no question of a sudden (surprising) reaction. Shelf life after such a short period is difficult to assess. I think the noise is normal. I would definitely recommend this gum to anyone who wants to feel safe. Price as most appropriate to the offered parameters. If someone wants to save for your family's safety class is recommended budget :) For next season I changed the tire in the car wife and I already know what I want to buy winter tires. Yours.
I bought a set of these just after they were released, before there were any reviews. I've been very happy with them. My previous set of summer tyres wore out last year so I have been using them all year. They have very soft sidewalls, I am not sure why some people say they are stiff. They are comfortable and reasonably quiet. The wet grip is not particularly great, but I have had far worse tyres in the wet: Michelin Energy on this car. They are far better than Goodyear eagle F1s in the wet below about 7C! The dry grip is reasonable. They work fine in the summer without wearing badly. they are great in the winter. they have surprisingly low rolling resistance, a bit lower than my old Michelin Energies! The treadwear is also very good. I will be using them all year in the UK now, they are OK in the summer, when tyres have much better grip anyway, and very good in the winter when things tend to be more slippery.
