    Not good i had a garage look at the tyres within a week of fitting them as the traction control kept activating when cornering. It was suggested that a poorly cured rubber may be the problem as there were obvious signs of the tread 'feathering'. It was suggested that this may have caused the traction control to activate as the cars brain would think that the car was skidding when cornering. Now, 9,000 miles in....the wear has shown heavily at the centre and inside edge of the tyre. I check pressures regularly (they are not over inflated) and the tracking has been checked and is fine. Shockingly, today I discovered the tyre wire is now showing, making theatres both illegal and dangerous. Not confidence inspiring for a family car. Very poor quality tyre.....the worst I've had, even when compared to some real budget tyres purchased a few years back.

    Nokian Line was bought and fitted in April 2013. First 300 miles was very unstable and I felt like floating. After beating 300 miles Nokian Line became quite silent and comfortable, but without excitation. Good behaviour on straight and bands on dry and wet. Less stable on bands, efficient on dry. Generally soft and comfortable but without sport character. And now the best part: after making 15000 miles in one season with 70-80 mphs tread at 6mm but in the rear 3.5mm. Nokian Line is a premium class with one season durability. Total failure despite the good things I’ve written at the beginning. I have driven different tyres like: Yokohama, Dunlop, Goodyear and even Fulda on the same car. I guess that the manufacturer mixed up the compounds: he gave winter mixture instead of summer. If you like to buy one season tyre – consider Nokian Line.

    Nokian Line isn’t nor hard nor soft. If it comes for starting, braking and corner taking I see this Nokian Line as a decent one for wet and dry road. When taking bands aggressively Nokian Line bend a Little bit not Losing grip at the same time. Resuming: I’d recommend Nokian Line to drivers with calm driving style. Any case, the ride is pleasant and sure. The best tyres I have been driving in summer season so far. I need to mention that I have reached some advices from Oponeo’s staff. So far in both summer and winter season, they know what they are doing. I highly recommend – I intend to use this shop and their opinion still.

    Nokian Line is sensational, wide grooves make very good drainage, even entering into a puddle. On bands, the car is glued to the asphalt, and there is no question of falling off track or slip, violent bypass obstacles or avoid falling into the hole does not cause major problems and the car is stable, keep track driving in extreme conditions, even in the pouring rain, at the end I will add that I changed to winter tires very late, it happened that I rode on them at 2-3 degrees and did not noticed disturbing to keep the car, greet and recommend this tire

    One of the Best tyres I have used so far. Brand tyres in a decent price with very good road abilities. I’ve noticed that Nokian Line absorbs better than Barum. After beating 1300 miles you will not see the wear on Nokian Line. At the beginning I had some difficulties getting used to silence, as I was using economic class tyres before. I haven’t noticed any worrying behaviours while using Nokian Line in different road conditions. In another words: very good tyres that I recommend to everybody who wants to have a brand product at a low price.

Product description

Nokian Line 195/50 R16 88 V XL

The Nokian Line is a state-of-the-art tyre which makes the perfect choice for even the most demanding of drivers. The central rib of the Nokian Line features Cross-Block Sipes close to the outer shoulder, which work together with the stiffer rib to provide stability. They ensure soft road contact for the outer section while reducing rolling resistance (and therefore fuel consumption) and increasing driving comfort.

To prevent aquaplaning, separate Swoop Grooves are also shaped in the transversal main grooves on the outer shoulder. These elliptical slots store more water, increasing the volume of the grooves. The shape ensures that the firm tyre has excellent wet grip, even when worn.

The carefully chosen compound guarantees vehicle stability at high speeds and in unexpected road situations, as well as reducing fuel consumption by lowering rolling resistance. The Nokian Line features a tread wear indicator.

Fuel efficiency (rolling distance)

Fuel efficiency is rated from A to G on a colour-coded scale. The highest fuel efficiency rating is A (green; the lowest rolling resistance), while the lowest fuel efficiency rating is G (red; the highest rolling resistance). Rolling resistance influences fuel consumption and vehicle emissions; the lower the resistance, the lower the fuel consumption and exhaust fume emissions.

Wet grip

Wet grip is the tyre's ability to adhere to the road surface in wet conditions. The EU rating focuses only on the wet braking performance of the tyre. Wet grip is rated from A to G, where A represents the best braking performance and G represents the worst. It is one of the most crucial safety parameters.


Tyres contribute to the amount of noise a vehicle generates. Choosing a tyre with a good noise rating will lower the impact of your driving on the surrounding environment.
