Top 3 Nexen Winguard Snow G WH2 Reviews

Given 80% while driving a BMW 218d Active Tourer (205/60 R16 V) on mostly motorways for 7,000 spirited miles
Very good tire for the price! The initial 5000km they were very silent, not that much now at 10000km on them! Good fuel consumption! Have been using them on dry and wet tarmac in temperatures from -20 to 5 degrees (winter in Romania), but have seen some 10cm snow and a lot of slush these days and they seem reasuring up to 110km/h.

I was using nokian wr4 before, I didn't see a big difference between them, wet braking and wet grip were not very satisfying, but snow and ice grip was good.

Given 54% while driving a Audi 2.0tdi 140 sline sportback (205/60 R16) on a combination of roads for 7,000 average miles
I've been driving on these tires for two seasons now, they're ok in the dry, but nothing much. In the wet and rain, they are barely passable. They are dangerous on snow and ice, they do not inspire confidence. They are not noisy, are comfortable, they don't wear out much. I would not buy again

Given 89% while driving a Volkswagen Polo 1.4 TDI (185/60 R14 T) on a combination of roads for 2,000 average miles
Bought these because my Sava Eskimo S3+ needed replacement. For first winter I'm very impressed, very good grip in every condition. In comparison to Sava, they offer much more grip, especially in wet and they are much more quieter (previously on motorways I thought that irritating noise is coming from the wheel bearing or engine but after replacing tyres noise was gone). I don't feel any difference in snow between Nexen and Sava but I feel much more confident driving on Nexen then Sava. Excellent tyre for the money, highly recommended!!

Having these tyres for about 5 months and they didn't dissapointed at all. I've noticed the change immediately and the feeling is pretty positive. I have been surprised how well they perform on both dry and wet, considering their price range.
I was thinking of buying more expensive tyres, but I'm glad I bought these ones. So far, so good.

These tyres are great, finally got a bit of snow recently and got to play with them and they didn't disappoint. I drive quite hard and aggressive so I push the tyres hard and in the wet I sometimes feel there struggling but never had an issue.
These tyres were really well priced, are lasting well and inspire confidence in winter conditions.
