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: The Nokian WR SUV 3 is a winter tyre designed especially for 4x4 vehicles and SUVs. Its directional tread means that it delivers superb handling in changeable winter conditions and outstanding performance on any type of road.
The dense network of blades and silica-enhanced winter rubber compound guarantee driving stability and outstanding grip, even at high speeds. The tyre's innovative systems include Snow Claws, which offer superlative grip on snow and ice.
The polished transverse grooves and optimised tread pattern efficiently disperse water from under the tyre and prevent aquaplaning.
The directional tread improves driving comfort, and the longitudinal central rib offers driving stability both on dry roads and on snow, slush and ice. The stabilisers on the sides of the tread next to the longitudinal ribs and central rib provide additional rigidity, and the three-dimensional tread lock blades improve drivability and ensure line holding stability not only on straight roads, but also during sudden manoeuvres and when going round corners. Efficient and rapid dispersal of water and slush is guaranteed by a strong arrow-like tread pattern, deep transverse grooves and polished main grooves, which deliver the necessary grip regardless of the weather. The compound used to manufacture the Nokian WR SUV 3 offers guaranteed resistance to wear at any temperature, ensuring that the tyre can achieve a full range of performance values for even longer.

I’ve always heard only good opinions on Nokian tyres from all of their users. The tyres do well in tests and they’re recommended by sellers. I’ve driven on the Hakkapelitta model in Scandinavia myself but in completely different conditions. The only thing that made me cringe is the country of manufacture, which is Russia (because of the situation in Europe). However, I’ve spent my previous winter on the Nokian tyres so I’ve took a chance and bought WR SUV 3. Overall impression is very good. They’re in deed great tyres for snow (better than most of the winter tyres that I’ve ever used before from the premium shelf (mainly Goodyear, Dunlop and Pirelli). For wet weather, because of the aquaplaning I tend to use other tyres though. Once while driving on the highway at a speed of 100 mph the tyre was torn out. That was a first in my entire career. I don’t really know how it could happen as it was the side of the tyre, not tread so my assumption is that it was rather the failure of the tyre and not driving onto something sharp. Pressure, speed index and load capacity were adequate. I do not know what was the reason. I’ll never know. I have this weird impression in the back of my head that this wouldn’t happen if the tyre weren’t made in Russia. On the other hand I’m pretty sure that Nokian’s quality shouldn’t change because of the place of production. Would this make any change if the tyre was produced in a country with higher technical culture? I’m not sure. Sorry Nokian. I gave you a chance, but I don’t know if I want to risk my families life. Make your decision consciously when you buy tyres.
I have Mitsubishi Pajero Sport 2, 4x4 with manual locks. Driving in the city on a dry is a pleasure. On the wet it's exactly this same. The car holds on to the road very well. And now the best part: I was driving up the hill in 20-25ºC in deep sand – I was driving on these tyres and only I was able to get to the top with a friend of mine on the quad (of course quad was on other tyres). Lads in Uaz, Mercedes G (old model) and Ford Ranger didn't make it. While driving on the motorway 105mph the car also holds on to the road. I would definitely recommend this tyre to all. Previously I had a Bridgestone Dualer as the first equipment. The first rainfall after buying a car and in five minutes traction control on the asphalt saved me twice. The manufacturer has used the width of the tire to the maximum so the tread is literally from the edge to the edge of the balloon. When we look at the car from the behind it looks like I would wear a tyre two sizes wider.
Unfortunately I had a bad luck on these tyres. First balancing problems after installation caused by the fitting station or perhaps a bit worse quality of tyres produced in Russia that maybe not necessarily holds on to the standards? I don't know, but I survived hell when one tyre on the highway in the Czech Republic after hovering on a piece of alloy rims, which fell apart in another car just before I got to this place – the car was still on the emergency lights on the side. I was admiring how something like that, approx 10”, can knock your tyre of the rear wheel! It had to conquer exactly perpendicular. However in Austrian mountains these tyres did well on the road even though there was no snow except higher altitudes episodes that made access to the lifts. In Central Europe on the usual snow covered roads (because the road service fell asleep) I can't complain on them at all. Good braking and traction.
Very fast delivery of tyres, according to the offer. Despite various opinions, about them, I am very happy with my Nokian WR SUV 3 tyres. They are premium tyres of a very good quality for a very reasonable price and surprised me positively. Although they were manufactured in Russia, I can't complain about their manufacturing quality. I bought them in autumn 2013, and their production date was summer 2013, so my tyres were actually new. Due to their size (17 inch, fitted to alloy wheels) there were small problems with their balancing, but I went to the professional service then and they didn't have any problems with it. Two of them had just to be rotated on the wheels a bit and then re-fitted. They don't swerve at all and are practically inaudible while driving, which is rare in case of winter tyres such as Nokian WR SUV 3. I definitely recommend.
I've just taken these off to revert to summer option having covered just over 8,000 miles. Rear treads still just showing max 8mm and fronts down to 7mm which is excellent for wear on a heavy SUV. I like the built in numerical tread wear indicators which is very useful.
Very positive fast steering response and quiet too. Whilst we hardly had any snow, grip when cold and on ice and in mud when off road is reassuring.
One very fast emergency stop in wet conditions and again performed admirably.
I needed new summer tyres and on the basis of my above comments I have purchased
Nokian again and will review them in due course.
