  • Positive - Good on wet roads and ice.
  • Negative - Weaknesses on dry roads and snow (devaluation.)
  • Overall - The NEXEN Winguard Snow'G3 has good and bad. In the dry and on the snowy road, he did not get more than a satisfactory rating, which led to the downgrading of the overall rating. It gets good ratings on wet and polished icy surfaces, as well as in terms of fuel consumption and wear. With the NEXEN Winguard Snow'G3, it should be noted that the tire has had a compound change from week 3321 of manufacture, which leads to a change in performance. The tests were largely carried out with DOT 3321 tyres.

    Excellent value. Good dry grip, very good wet grip. No snow experience yet.

    The NEXEN Winguard Snow G3 WH21 is a brilliant tyre, far superior to my old vredestein snowtrac 5 tyres, drove them on the snow for the first time yesterday and I can honestly say I was blown away by their performance. I have them fitter to a 2012 ford fiesta and have just covered over 1.5K in the cold wet roads and driving has been very responsive even with heavy water on the roads. At first I thought they were a bit soft and felt the car was a bit wishy-washy on the road compared to the vredestein's, I soon realised the tyres were all under pressure thanks to the garage that fitted them. Blew them up to the car's recommended pressure and this changed things completely. So far so good and I know this is only my initial review but I must say I'm very impressed with them. This is my first time driving on nexen tyres but my first impression is really good for a budget tyre. Tyres are "Made in Czech republic" Can't recommend them enough for someone on a budget.

    Was a bit dubious of having these fitted as never used nexen tyres before but my local garage owner assured me they were a good tyre for the money and I would be happy with them. Two month down the line and 1000mls later I have to say I'm really pleased with them. The car handles as it should plus we had a few days of snow here a couple of weeks back so they were put to the test and they didn't let me down. Our street is really steep and always a struggle to climb in the winter time, especially when there's snow. As I wanted to test these tyres out I purposely tried some heavy breaking, a few hill stops and starts without any problem. The car just pulled away each time as if it was normal conditions. I can't comment on wear as only had them fitted a few months but I'm quite confident they will last me several seasons for the amount of miles I do each year.

    Update: we had some winter weather this month and the tyres were very good on snow and ice as well as on wet and dry roads. I think it's a premium tyre performance for 2/3 price. Very good value for money!

    Really impressed with these tyres, these replaced my worn Apollo winter tyres which have always been brilliant in winter time but I recon these are as good if not better, maybe it's because they are new and ample tread but only time will tell. Rubber is nice and flexible with ample sipes for that extra grip on the road. As someone else mentioned they feel a bit soft and at higher temperatures they do feel a bit floaty at times but I think all winter tyres are the same in warmer conditions. Just make sure they are up to right pressure and you'll be fine. I would say the tread pattern is similar to the Conti Wintercontact TS860
