Nokian WR SUV 4
The Nokian WR SUV 4 is the company's brand new winter tyre for SUVs and 4x4s. With the tagline "Outsmart the winter", it is a safe and reliable choice for sport utility and crossover vehicles.
Officially approved for winter use, the WR SUV 4 offers precise handling and excellent grip in snow, slush and heavy rain, in addition to impressive stability and durability.
The WR SUV 4 features a highly innovative tread pattern. Incorporating Nokian's Climate Grip Concept, the directional tread design ensures a stable driving feel and a reduced risk of aquaplaning and slushplaning. Furthermore, specially tailored sipes stiffen the tyre, which improves handling on both wet and dry roads.
At the same time, the inclusion of snow claws means the tyre grips effectively on snow and other soft terrains. As well as providing maximum grip on snow, the design offers drivers better control when cornering and changing lanes.
Nokian's polished grooves are the final notable aspect of the WR SUV 4's tread pattern. These slick, wide grooves allow slush and surface water to flow easily and efficiently away from the tyre's path. In turn, this improves wet grip and reduces the risk of aquaplaning.
In addition to all of this, the WR SUV 4's rigid SUV winter compound allows it to perform consistently and reliably in changing winter temperatures.
The combination of innovative tread design and intelligent compound ensures the WR SUV 4 offers excellent performance on wet, slushy and snowy roads alike.
Aramid Sidewall Technology
Like most of the company's SUV tyres, the WR SUV 4 utilises Nokian's Aramid Sidewall Technology.
This technology involves including incredibly strong Aramid fibres (sometimes used in bulletproof vests) in the sidewall compound. This strengthens the sidewalls to withstand external impacts and pressing against the wheel flange. This consequently improves the tyre's puncture resistance and durability, offering drivers protection in all situations.
Satisfaction Promise & Aramid Guarantee
The WR SUV 4 is included in both Nokian's Satisfaction Promise and its Aramid Guarantee.
This provides drivers with peace of mind that, should their tyre be faulty or not up to their expectations, Nokian will listen and provide them with a corresponding product free of charge from any participating retailer.

Nokian WR SUV 4 Tests & Reviews
Despite being a new addition to Nokian's product portfolio, the WR SUV 4 has already proven itself in independent tyre tests.
Firstly, in Off Road Magazine's 2018 Winter Tyre Test, the WR SUV 4 emerged as Test Winner. The German magazine labelled it "Highly Recommended". Its braking and accelerating performance in snow and ice meant it stood out as a forerunner. This, combined with the fact that it was the only tyre that performed consistently well in all conditions, meant it outperformed a wide range of other brands.
