Sporty handling, first-class snow grip: The new Nokian WR A4 winter tyre to tame the Central European winter

The sporty new Nokian WR A4 from the world’s northernmost tyre manufacturer optimally combines high-performance handling and reliable winter grip. Functional Performance Siping and the Performance Traction Silica rubber compound are the inventor of the winter tyre’s state-of-the-art innovations that master all the elements of the Central European winter and rapid temperature changes. They ensure absolutely balanced driving in snow storms, slush, heavy rain or sun-scorched asphalt that welcomes faster driving. Inspired by nature, the Centipede Siping on the centre rib is the latest winter grip innovation from the product development champions at Nokian Tyres. The jagged 3D sipes that resemble a centipede grip the surface, maximising snow grip and stable handling.

The size selection of this premium winter tyre for high-performance vehicles covers sizes from 16 to 21 inches and speed ratings from H (210 km/h) up to W (270 km/h). The versatile selection also includes sizes for modern electric cars, such as the Tesla Model S. The special products in the selection employ Flat Run technology, and many products are marked XL for the highest possible load capacity in that particular size.

During the past winter, Central European drivers were already able to enjoy the Nokian WR D4 with its class A wet grip rating in many sizes and the Nokian Weatherproof All-Weather tyre for year-round use. The new Nokian WR A4 complements Nokian Tyres’ Central European winter tyre selection, which is one of the widest and most modern in the business. This uncompromising winter tyre represents the new generation that follows the Nokian WR A3. The full size selection of this new premium product will be available to consumers in the autumn of 2016.
