"I originally had a set of the Hakkapeliitta winter tires on my Touareg. I went to purchase a set for my Jetta and was informed you made "factory studded" and that they were the best tire I would ever own. Well, that comment is so true! I love the tires, they have been a saving grace on our deadly winter roads on the Southern Interior Highways of BC. I deal with a lot of snow and ice and have been able to go anywhere with ease without slipping or sliding. I feel comfortable and safe with my family. I will continue to purchase these tires, including putting them on my up and coming new drivers vehicle (I just had a son turn 16 and will have his own vehicle next year). Your company truly makes an incredible winter tire."

"I recently purchased a 2004 F-150 with Nokian Vatiiva tires installed by the dealer. I was not familiar with them at first and I did some research. Being from Michigan, I thought this winter would be the perfect time to put them to the test. To say I was impressed would be an understatement. I swear by these tires and I will not buy anything else for my truck. I recommend them to anyone I meet."

"I read the test in Germany´s Autobild. I tried the Z GP2 on the BMW Z3 2.8 Roadster 245/40 and 225/45 17" Dimension. (Bevor i used PilotSport 2 265/35 / 235/40.) They Nokian runs perfect with Roadster needs. Very comfortable (inspite of the M Drive) very quiet, especially when open driving. Dry Grip and wet handling is also well. I recommend it on the z3-roadster-forum.de. Will buy again this tyre and support the company. It is really perfect for the Z3."

"I was always sceptical about the worth of winter tyres, living in Ireland the Mild winters have been more about dealing with rain than snow. That all changed in the winter of 2009 when the whole country froze up and movement in vehicles became difficult and dangerous with summer tyres, After research I purchased a set of Nokian WR G2 for my wifes car, the difference in handling in the snow and ice was amazing to say the least, I liked them so much I bought Nokian H for the summer, and now on my car I have fitted All Season Plus for the coming winter. Thank You Nokian for making a good, safe and affordable tyre."

"I Bought My first set Of Nokian tyres. I was totally impressed with them. When the first snow hit I put these Tyres to the test! To be honest I'm Sold on them!! I went the snow with confidence! Solid performance A+++ in My book. Even through rain these are top notch. I'm want to get another set for My Mom's car. Next I've owned other brands. But these are the best in My book. For snow&ice ect . They offer a solid&safe ride&handling too. You get what you pay for. You can't put a price on your safety when comes to tyres. The WR's I have was worth every dollar I spent. Safety - Priceless."

"A Big Thank you for the WRG2 and the WRA3. After spending the last two winters in tears not being able to control my cars in the snow, this winter I fitted your tyres. Snow fell on the UK this weekend and there was no stopping me. I felt safe and my confidence has been restored for driving in snow, the grip was unbelievable :)"

"Hi. In spring 2011 I bouhgt set of H models for summer. I was totally surprised with great driving and handling. Without any hesitance before winter I have purchased set of WR D3 model. Just got back from winter holidays in snowy mountains. There are not enough words to tell how excellent tires are. Quattro and Your tires make the perfect safety set for all weather. Sure I will drive on NOKIANS for years!."

"I have a 2003 VW Passat Tdi sport Estate (130ps), with 205/55 R16 V, and I’d like some recommendations for the best Nokian tyre, for here in the UK. I understand that the NRVi and the Z are options – which is best suited to the car. I must add that I’m very impressed with the reviews and the user reports on Nokian tyres on many forums – it’s a shame that they are not very well known here in the UK. My cousins in Denmark will only use them! Many thanks!."
- Robert, UK
"The Nokian tires that I just purchased, saved my family's lives. We narrowly missed a vehicle on the #1 highway in Canada. I know the tires were the reason we didn't collide. I would like to say thank you for making a very good product."
- Chris, Canada
"The tires have turned several near misses into genuinely "ok" experiences and lent me fantastic traction on snow and ice. I'll be buying at least three other sets for family members! Please keep up the great work!"

"Hello my names is X and I am from Turkey. My car honda city tyres 185 55 15 H Nokian and very good. I congratulate you on your success Nokian Tyres company."
- Hüsamettin, Turkey
"After having puchased and tried the "known-as-good" X tyres, I felt deeply disappointed by their behavoiur under severe snow conditions in the french Alps during my snow holiday. Well, I decided to buy a set of your WR G2 and I tried'em soon after purchase. I'm really happy, especially in lateral stability which was the worst lack of the X tyres... WR G2 are actually magnetized to the road and you get a true sensation of stability and control of your car, which is the most important aspect to me. Well, you have a new happy customer now, I'll be pleased to attach and show the TRUST THE NATIVES sticker on my rear windscreen but my tire dealer has not this kind of merchandising."

"I am a satisfied customer NOKIAN winter tires, who lives in northern Italy. I use your winter tires on my Audi A6."
- Silvio, Northern Italy
"Thank you a lot! Your tyres are the best for me! I bought 4 WR G2 last year 255-65-17 for my Nissan Pathfinder and I followed the suggestions of the seller non to change them in summer. Best tyres on ice-snow. Incredible under the rain and in summer? Most of winter tyres becomes soft with hot but not Nokian. Only in August I run with them for more than 6500 km (from Italy to Romania (Black Sea) and more. At the moment I run with these tyres for about 49.000 km per year. I've already taken 4 new WR G2 ready to be assembled on my car now to be ready for new 2011 winter. Nothing to say.. you've only to try... this's what I say to my friends."

"I live in the Highlands of Scotland. I drive a Subaru Impreza and since late September this year I have been using your W+ tyres. I am utterly amazed at how good they are. The weather and snow levels here right now are some of the worst I have ever witnessed. I feel way more in control and safer with your tyres on. The car is balanced moves predictably and inspires great confidence. I chose your tyres based on recommendations after doing a lot of research into many brands of winter tyres. They have exceeded my expectations, they are better than my old brand in the dry, are amazing in the wet and so far are shocking me how good they are in the snow. On all levels performance, price, safety and feel. These tyres have me loyal to your brand always now. Thank you for keeping me safe and getting me back home to my family."
- Diarmid, Highlands of Scotland
"Keep up the good work. I and my family are using Nokian winter and summer tyres in the UK. We all love the quality of the product. With our thanks."

"I just thought I would share with you a story. Last week I purchased a set of eNTYRES for my VW Golf the day before a road trip. (I’d had a fantastic experience with Nokian tyres some years back on a previous car). I am not an aggressive driver, and I was mainly concerned with wet grip. Since I use snow tires, I was looking for the “H”, but since it was not immediately available and reviews on the eNTYRE were so positive, I purchased them. The first day of my trip I glanced at my directions and looked up to find that the car ahead of me had rapidly braked on a highway in order to make a U-turn through a construction site. I had to brake hard, and fully expected to spin-out or have to choose between driving off the road or hitting the car ahead. Amazingly, after a slight swerve (I didn’t even notice the ABS which has a tendency to be abrupt cause tire slippage when it kicks in) the car decelerated politely, sure-footedly, and in a perfectly straight line. Wow! Two days later as I accelerated into an intersection on a rain-slick and rough country road, an oncoming car flashed in front of me, attempting a left turn through the just-changed red light. As I depressed the brakes I was already hearing metal on metal – I would have struck him amidships. I was amazed when my car stopped on a dime, this time in much more challenging road conditions. As far as I am concerned, the eNTYRE potentially saved my life twice in the first three days of ownership!"

"I'm a long time X tyres user (235/50/18 + 255/45/18) and recently a very very dissapointed X tyres user.
I found your tires somehow in a car magazine. I bought your tires on a whim. I put your tires on my car, and my to be quite honest, you have made the best tire that I've ever seen in 1,700,000 miles of driving. Thank you. Reasons: Turning/steering response "cut-in" is 110% perfect - amazing, Traction during powerful start off, stop, and turning, is .. -- amazing, SOLID FEEL during driving - never had this before actually with any tire, this is because of the straight line "F1 racing type" tread design. Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you for building and promoting this excellent tire. Oh, and, I was so glad about this, that I paid to register a domain and setup a website describing my experience in a very detailed fashion. Sometimes, it's a good review that's all it takes to push a buyer over the edge to "purchase the product" - and considering that your brand isn't X or X tyres, the REVIEWS are very important for the "new" customers like me that always buy Michelin just "because" that's the thing to do. Thank you again for the excellent product, congratulations to your R&D team."
