Nokian WR D4

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.

Tyre details:

Looking for a reliable winter tyre? The Nokian WR D4 is the successor to the WR D3, a popular tyre amongst Central European and Scandinavian drivers. The new model is a solution designed for city cars, estates and small cars.

Nokian prioritises safety and excellent performance in typical winter conditions, so it is not surprising that it has been awarded the "A" rating for braking on wet surfaces (within the European labelling system). The WR D4 is the first tyre in its category with an "A" rating for wet braking.


The model features a directional tread pattern, which has been improved and optimised to suit winter conditions in Central Europe. The improved block design, reinforced with special connections and incisions, improves effective dispersal of water, slush and snow.


The wide central rib features shorter blades to ensure steering precision and stability on the road. All of the grooves and tread blocks have been individually designed. This guarantees excellent grip and stability when going round corners and during sudden manoeuvres.

The tyre features the Nokian Twin Trac Silica compound, containing natural rubber, silica and rapeseed oil. This compound improves driveability on snowy and wet surfaces, helps increase grip and is very durable, which in turn has a positive impact on the service life of the WR D4. The use of this compound reduces rolling resistance, which in turn leads to a reduction in fuel consumption and thus a more economic and environmentally friendly driving experience.


The engineers behind the tyre have also improved acoustic comfort using Silent Sidewall technology, a special strip made from an innovative rubber compound and inserted between the side wall and the tread (shown above). This actively filters noise and vibrations coming from the tyre whilst driving, resulting in a quiet and comfortable driving experience.

Nokian is an independent Finnish manufacturer which is particularly renowned for its winter tyres adapted to the difficult conditions of Central Europe and Scandinavia. Nokian introduces environmentally friendly solutions, making its products good for the environment not only at the production stage but also during their use and disposal.

    I've mounted the Nokian WR D4 tyres over 2 months ago. I drove a little more than 750 miles on them with a 150 bhp car weighing 1.5 tons. Usually in the city. First thing that got my attention was the smell of rubber compound. That's very unusual. From what I've read Nokian added canola oil to the mixture, maybe this caused such an unusual effect. These tires really smell like no other. I don't pay much attention to the appearance of the tread, for me it's completely irrelevant. For me, the tyre needs to be effective when it comes to draining water, mud and snow as well as breaking distance. On second place i'd put the noise level and the third thing is rolling resistance. But I must admit that this tread is unique in appearance and looks quite nice. As for traction; On the dry the tyre firmly grips the road and is very quiet, not squealing on curves. At high speeds on the highway tyre noise did not bother me at all, it is minimal and for that Nokian is to be commended. I had the opportunity to ride in the city during really heavy rains which turned roads into rivers and so I am delighted how well this tire can cope with the water.At 45mph in such conditions, I only heard sough of traversed water, and the car felt like it was sticked with a glue. Rut with water? For those tires it does not matter. Braking? At the 45 mph, in these rainy conditions, the car felt like if it was driving on the dry road. As for the winter conditions of snow it was maybe a couple of days and the tires were good. On the slush also all great. But it is not enough to somehow verify their effectiveness and to issue reliable opinions. As for the rolling resistance is not noted a higher combustion When you change summer tires (Pirelli) with these winter tires, but i refrain from evaluation because of a small run on these Nokian WR D4. I won't judge thei durability neither because of distance. In my opinion premium tires all have similar parameters. If you have a slow 300-400 pounds and wish to buy winter tires then i honestly recommend them. If not, try Barums, but in my opinion it is worth investing in Nokians, in the end is the only part of the car which directly connects it to the surface ... Final statement - since i usually have little time to get to work in the morning i'm very glad Nokian WR D4 can take me there swiftly and safely.

    The Nokian WR D4 keeps cool as well fitted on the car with more than 300 hp. First impression - at above + 10 ° C during braking from high speeds the tyre terribly bends (i know it should be used when it's colder but still) - enough so that you think that you are driving on the rims. They also make strange sound during braking (something like this specifically hums and whistles, oddly enough from the beginning I thought that I did keep coming brakes) Second thing is that Nokian WR D4 are rather durable. A few days driving in dodatnch temperature, some faster braked suddenly have 10 thousand miles instead of 8 mm tread close to 7 mm. Any super-aggressive driving, most highway and is classified as the biggest downsides of the tire. On the plus side? Adhesives for dry better than a summer tire type Dunlop Sport Max On wet at all a revelation because I virtually can ride as if there was no water on the road. Overally: you should buy them even if you hadn't heard of them before, but if You are driving on a lot I'm sure the will last a few seasons so it's hard not to recommend them.

    I bought Nokian WR D4 to replace Pirelli Winter Snowcontrol 185/60 R15, and during summer i use of Michelin Energy Saver in the same size. I decided to buy Nokian in "XL" version with a load index 88 instead of 84 to get more support and I do not regret the choice at all. This new Nokian rubber proved to be a very good decision. In terms of grip on dry, wet and snow, all compared to the old Pirelli, Michelin is compared to the summer, with respect to which these Nokian also offer lower fuel consumption and noise levels slightly lower, despite the winter geometry and the greater load index. My car now offers great comfort with the soft suspension, but it gives great opportunity for sports maneuvering, as the tread a little 'tight; nevertheless, I found more grip than the Michelin summer, which amazed me. Throughout the winter, in which I have traveled about 10,000 miles, the tread has worn by ONE millimeter. Ultimately, I could not claim to be more happy with this purchase. Last, but not least, the Oponeo service was good and fast.

    Hello, there were many positive reviews I have to express my opinion on Nokian WR D4 tires. Traction and breaking on snow as well as wet is pretty good but i was hoping it'd be a bit better. The noise a little quieter than my Michelins primacy Hp. And that would be enough. Now a negative impression. The tire is the index of H, but goes on it above 140km / h (weather conditions good and dry road), unfortunately the car gets unstable sometimes but probably because it's quite heavy and even Michelins felt that way. Otherwise the traction is satisfactory . I've never experienced anything like this for the summer, so on dry pavement advise against. To 140km / h the tire meets your expectatnions but above that Nokian WR D4 werent so good during July / September 2015 (but still that was the time when summer tyres should've been used so i got those fitted little too early.

    It is true that I do not have Nokian WR D4 for long, but I managed to do 1500 miles already. I tested it both out and in the city, because I traveled a lot lately. On a dry surface they behave really well. For wet (and a lot of rain recently) I was very pleasantly surprised, because I did not feel much of a difference. But most surprised me is how the tires allow you to correct mistakes on the slippery surface whether it's snow or soft ice. I have repeatedly made the mistake of giving too much gas while cornering (at this point it's probably just the spikes would have helped), the car began to fly, but after rapid correction of gas and counterattacks on wheels - Nokian WR D4 immediately caught traction again. Really highly recommended Nokian - I will recommend them to my faily and friends.
