Nokian WR A3 features
The presented tyre is marked with 3PMSF symbol (Three Peak Mountain Snow Flake). It means that the tyre meets the EU requirements for winter tyres. The symbol is awarded after thorough tests of a tyre model in terms of snow grip.
The Nokian WR A3 has 3 main characteristics: excellent grip and steerability in any winter conditions, stability and very good driveability at any temperature and reduced fuel consumption. The model is the ideal choice for drivers of cars with a high performance engine looking for a tyre that offers steering precision, even in difficult conditions and at high speeds. Tests carried out in severe conditions have proved that the Nokian WR A3 easily handles even the most difficult of road conditions found in Europe.
Thanks to its asymmetric tread pattern, the tyre provides excellent grip. The special arrangement of the inner shoulder means that it quickly and effectively disperses water and slush. The product offers excellent performance during sudden manoeuvres, such as lane changes and overtaking, as well as when going round corners.
The tyre is made from a special compound, which combines natural rubber, silica and canola oil. This material ensures good grip (including on wet roads) and high resistance to wear at any temperature, thus making the tyre more environmentally friendly.
The arrangement of the semi-circular recesses on the sides of the longitudinal ribs minimises the heat generated by the tyre, making the tyre safer and more durable, even at high speeds. This solution reduces rolling resistance, resulting in lower fuel consumption. This innovation reduces tyre noise both inside and outside the vehicle. This feature is also down to the tyre's "Quiet Side Wall" solution, which absorbs vibrations from the tyre surface and stops them penetrating the inside of the vehicle.
The Nokian WR A3 features an easy to use tread wear indicator and a snowflake symbol. This allows the driver to control a situation where the tyre is no longer fit for use in winter conditions.
