The ''Beast from the East'' during Winter 2018 - was easily tamed by Nokian WR SUV 3 tyres
These tyres are in my opinion ''the best'', and are / have being used now for a year with all year round use on my Volvo XC90, after all we get more bad weather than good in the North of England. The grip from these tyres in winter is something to behold [what snow, ice & rain ?], and believed. The only marginally increased stopping distance in comparison with ''good'' summer tyres [in hot weather only - when we get any] is far outweighed by the much shorter stopping distances [compared to premium quality summer tyres] in the wet & especially in the cold [ 7 degree C & below ], that we have the majority of the year. These tyres are in my opinion much more comfortable, quieter, and better wearing [even used in the summer months - which would usually take its toll on a softer rubber winter tyre compound] than even the previous German Continental tyres that I considered to be ''good in summer but not in winter''. It would appear that there is something to be said for buying winter tyres from a country such as Finland where they endure cold and snowy weather a lot more than we do, and know how to build tyres to tame the weather. When these do eventually wear down to an ''acceptable and safe limit'', which at the current rate of wear I anticipate to be at least another year, I will have no hesitation in purchasing another set, and regularily recommend Nokian tyres to others. Wet weather grip is highly impressive,
Yes, I recommend this product
