Nokian WR G2 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.

Nokian WR G2 is a premium winter tyre produced by an independent Finnish company Nokian. Nokian WR G2 has been designed and tested in the Arctic Circle specifically for the European unpredictable winters characterized by sudden changes in temperature, rain and snow. Good grip on various surfaces Nokian WR G2 is ideal for difficult weather conditions and provides safe driving not only on paved roads, but also in moderate terrain. This is the first winter tyre providing high-performance traction on wet and slippery conditions. Nokian WR G2 is equipped with a central rib special DSI wear indicator. It is an easy and quick way to check the tyre condition. The numbers indicate the depth of the tread in millimetres. Ecology The tyre has a special asymmetrical tread. It is reliable in all conditions, such as slush, wet and dry roads thanks to the wedge-shaped blocks. Addition of vegetable oil and silica contribute to lower rolling resistance and slower fuel consumption and small carbon emissions. Protection against aquaplaning Smooth grooves improve traction of the tyres. Sharp edges and notches on the outer side of the tyre make driving safe, even during cornering. Water is rapidly drained from the surface of the tyre with the circumferential grooves, which lowers the risk of aquaplaning and provides self-cleaning tread. Nokian WR G2 provides optimal performance even in extreme winter conditions. Nokian has showed that the use of green technology can go hand in hand with high performance driving characterized by uncommon traction properties and high quality, which has been confirmed in many independent tyre tests. Nokian WR G2 works in difficult weather conditions on different surfaces. It provides safe and comfortable driving. It is designed for middle-class cars and for city traffic.

    I bought Nokian WR G2 last year and I was using them in Chicago, IL. I think that it was pretty accurate choice for me as this years winter was pretty heavy. What is more, the economical crisis has it's impact also on the snowplow service as there were much less money for such services this year. But this is not the crucial thing. My Nokian WR G2 are behaving very good on snowy/icy roads. I am talking about braking. Moving-off on icy road with my 4x4 is pretty straigh-forward to be honest. While driving on snowy-mud you have to be a bit cautios as it is pretty easy to slush and no tyres will be able to rescue it's user from that. I had previously Barum equpied in my car and they were not as good as those Nokian WR G2 are. I feel pretty confident while cornering and braking. I do not have to worry aboout any skids/slushes etc as I am sure that with a bit of driving skills and good tyres you can be just safe. To conclude, I found Nokian WR G2 to be a brilliant snow tyre.

    I bought those Nokian WR G2 as I analyzed all advantages and disadvantages, I have read a lot of reviews etc. And this is how my trouble started. Although, they I have tried to balance them in a professional fitting station in Hull, it was not possible to balance them correctly. THey are rumbling as hell. While driving over 60 mph my car just shakes like jelly. I went to the fitting station for multiple times right now, and they were not able to properly balance those tyres. It seems that Nokian WR G2 in the size 195/65R15 has some balance issueswhich simply made them useless for me. One time, I thoight that my nightmare has already finished, but once day I went for shopping with my family and I saw that I have lost 30g weight from one wheel so the car again started to howl/rumble and shake as hell. I do not wish to judge their performance as simply the noise level and the steering wheels wobbles took all my driving pleasure away. I will never buy WR G2 once again.

    I had to put those onto my Passat B6 2005 140 bhp. I have to say that Nokian WR G2 are quite nice. On dry/wet road surface they perform very good. They grip is very decent also while cornering which in my opinion is crucial for winter tyre. My car consumes the same amout of petrol as on my summer tyres so I believe that rolling resistance is quite low with this WR G2 tread. Snow performance can be judge as top shelf. It is obvious that on snow or ice the performance of those WR G2 is supported by ESP and ABS but that is their puropse so I do not care whether abs or esp turns on as I believe that they are here to make me safe not annoy me. Very stable confident driving comofrt I have to say. Switching lanes on a bit of snow is also not a problem thanks to the asymmetric tread pattern which actually bites the snow. Price/quality ratio seems to be much better than I expected it to be. I do recommend Nokian WR G2 as your winter tread. Try them You will not regret.

    I would like to point out that for me Nokian WR G2 is a perfect tyre. Although this 07/08 winter season did not give me too many oportunities to test their snow performance I think that next season I will use my WR G2 once again and I am sure that they will peform aboslutely splenind next year as well. Very good performance on dry/wet road surface - 0 surppises. The same goes with the noise level which is absolutely barely noticable. They are way more silent than my previous Dunlops. To be absolutely honest, I had some problems with balancing my new Nokian WR G2. IN october I bought new steel wheels and tyres to fit those and in my fitting station they were trying to balance them for about 2-3 hours. The pressure was arround 5 bar but the tyre did not want to fit the rim. I think that it might be the issue with the steel wheel not with the tyres but I did not investigate that case any further.

    These are my first tyres from Nokian and I have chosen the WR G2 to be mi first Nokian winter tread. I think that these WR G2 are a bit overrated especially when it comes to driving on icy/snowy road surface. Firstly, my car behaved pretty predictable on dry/wet road surface. Secondly, the noise level is also relatively low as I could barely hear the diference between Nokian WR G2 and my summer Pirelli P6. What is more, at speeds ober 130 MPH my car handles pretty confident and stable. Previosuly I had my winter tyres from Barum and they were kinda swimming while cornering which does not happen to these Nokian WR G2. I also went to Poland for Christmas and the winter there was pretty hard. I have to say that my tyres were performing just superb. I do recommend those.
