    Top 3 Nokian Line SUV Reviews

    Given 74% while driving a Chevrolet Tahoe (265/70 R16 H) on mostly motorways for 15,000 average miles
    Excellent tire for the first 20000km. Very comfortable ride, excellent handling in both dry and wet, low rolling resistance.

    However things change in the negative direction after 20k, even though there is plenty of tread (6mm) left. Especially the emergency braking suffers dramatically and they get noisier. Now that two of them went out of round and can't be balanced successfully, I will have to get rid of them way earlier than expected.

    Given 89% while driving a Volvo 2.0 T5 Saloon (215/65 R18 V) on mostly country roads for 40,000 spirited miles
    Volvo XC70 AWD better and quieter than Pirelli Scorpians they replaced. Car is heavy with high center of gravity but these tyres make high speed driving safe and the braking distance is improved noticeably. Liked them so much bought a set of Nokian Winter tyres. Hence summer tyres have lasted four seasons and still have a couple of thousand miles in them. Chech pressure regularly and rotate tyres front to back. These have proved quiet on good surfaces and returned great mpg and comfort. They are cheaper than many comparable makes. The winter tyres are fantastic too.

    Given 51% while driving a Toyota RAV4 (225/45 R17) on mostly town for 2,000 spirited miles
    I purchased x4 of these which I thought were quite cheap for what I thought was a good mid-range brand. Nokian love to let you know that they've got the furthest north tyre test facility in the world. Therefore, during our recent snow, I thought these SUV branded tyres would at least be respectable, but no. There's terrible! Literally no grip in my 4x4 unless I drive at a ridiculously slow crawl. As for ride comfort, as another reviewer has stated these are really really hard and very loud!.. you can feel every bump and the loudness is so bad it gives me a headache. The previous tyres were no-name budgets and they were so much more comfortable and quieter than these. What was a calm, relaxing 4x4 to drive is now the opposite. I will say however, these are great for cutting through standing water, I've had no aquaplaning even in the deepest of water. Dry weather performance is just... Meh. I would say they break any better than budget tyres. It's a real shame, as I had high hopes for this tyre. I guess I know why they're so cheap now.

    Given 60% while driving a Toyota Hilux Surf (1KZ TE) (265/70 R16) on mostly motorways for 40,000 easy going miles
    Initially OK, but after approx 40,000 easy motorway miles over 5 years, the tyres are splitting between the circumferential grooves and have failed inspection, despite still having 3 to 4mm of thread remaining.

    Given 69% while driving a Mitsubishi shogun sport (265/70 R16) on mostly country roads for 7,000 spirited miles
    As usual a very thight fit to get them on the rims, so be aware if your ride is bumpy, it might be that they do not sit correct on the rim. When properly done, they are accurate circular.
    Grip is absolutely approved. On my Pajero Sport they perform beautiful in all conditions on tarmac.
    Except from wear. Approx 5mm left after less than 10.000KM is not pleasing at all.
    Still, I consider these next time. Never I had better all-purpose-tyres. At 100KM/h and full brake (newly serviced quality brake parts) the ABS hardly work at all, and the 2 ton car stops really fast, at dry lukewarm tarmac. In wet they slip a tiny bit, but better than several premium tyres. Turns, curves and hills are all done excactly as I want them to, no surprising understeer.

    Given 54% while driving a Mitsubishi Outlander (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 5,000 average miles
    Very, very loud and they ride hard, really hard, even at 2.2 bar (the lower limit of the tyres). You literally feel every bump on the road. I bought them last year and drove them on a Mitsubishi Outlander XL. Had to replace 3 tie-rod ends on the front suspension (2 left, 1 right) in 4 months. Also, the brakes started rattling (the holes where the slide pins go widened and changed shape from circle to ellipse). On top of that, for such a hard tyre, it wears super fast.
    This winter I got Michelin Pilot Alpin 4 and oh boy, the difference is night and day. They ride super quiet and very soft, a total pleasure... unlike the Nokians, which I plan to replace every minute now, because I can't stand how bad they ride.

    Given 54% while driving a Subaru Forester (205/70 R15) on mostly motorways for 9,000 easy going miles
    At first I was very pleased. The tires run silent with excellent grip.
    I use the car to make longer trips in modest speed, Rarely over 100 km/h
    After 1500 km three of the tires turned oval, they "separated".
    Sent the tires to Nokian but they did not recognize my complaint. They could see that the tires was oval but they were not to blame!?
    I've been driving my car the same way for 15 years, 200000 km. Not even ONE tyre has turned into an egg. With Nokian i got THREE.

    Never Nokian again!

    Only positive words for grip and handling but very fast wear, after 25000 kilometers there is 1mm of tread left.
