Tyre Test Highlights

2010 Auto Zeitung Winter Tyre Test - 4th of 13 tyres

  • Overall - The Nokian WRG2 provides good snow handling but is slightly let down by its snow braking result. Unrivaled dry grip and excellent wet performance gives this WRG2 a good overall score.

2010 Auto Bild Performance Winter Tyre Test - 5th of 5 tyres

  • Positive - Good safety margin in the wet, sporty handling with short braking distances on dry roads
  • Negative - Only satisfactory winter characteristics, slightly extended braking distances on a wet track

2009 Sport Auto Performance Winter Tyre Test - 5th of 8 tyres

  • Positive - Balanced handling and acceptable delay on snow. Good handling characteristics in drought
  • Negative - Poor aquaplaning properties. Gentle traction on snow

Latest Nokian WRG2 Reviews

Given 83% (breakdown) while driving a Volkswagen Sharan 1.9TDi (225/45 R17) on mostly town for 15 spirited miles
I know I'm more than 5 years late with this review, but I just found thes tyres in my garage, I had used them in the winter of 2010, where it didn't seem to stop snowing for months. These tyres were absolutely incredible in snow, slush, and rainy conditions. In fact the more it snowed, the better they seemed to get. I went up a steep hill with three people in the back, in the snow! Nokian know what they are doing. Bloody brilliant.

Given 86% (breakdown) while driving a Volkswagen Jetta 2.0 TDI (205/55 R16) on a combination of roads for 55 spirited miles
These tyres have far exceeded my expectations. Over 55,000 miles of city driving and long highway trips and they are just now ready for replacement. Hot summers with heavy rains and sleet in the fall and lots of snow in the winter. (I use Blizzak snow tyres for heavy snow conditions) They are strong performers in all conditions. As others have mentioned it is a great feeling to be driving securely through conditions in which others motorists are struggling to drive. I have not noticed any significant road noise but I drive a diesel so the cabin is insulated from most road noise anyway. The ride is secure and smooth for normal conditions. We have put many thousands of highway miles on these Nokians and have no complaints at all with the comfort they deliver. I not only highly recommend these tyres, I just purchased a second set which I will install this fall. Happy motoring!

Good winter tyres for city driving and roads without ice
