  • The Nokian Outpost nAT was way closer to the all weather than the all season tyre, which is very impressive. It's worth reminding you that we're testing on very hard packed snow at around -17c / 0f!
    Sure, the all terrain tyre felt a little more like a blunt instrument, there was less feedback around the limit of grip and even coming out of the garage you could tell that it's a more solid tyre, but considering you could do a weekend of winter offroading in the sunshine then drive back home through a where it's snowing and still be better off than everyone on their all season tyres - it's a very impressive blend.

Top 3 Nokian Outpost nAT Reviews

Given 80% while driving a Porsche cayenne s (265/60 R18) on a combination of roads for 1,000 average miles
My initial thoughts on the Outpost nAT are that they're definitely my favorite all-terrain tire I've ever had. My past all-terrain experience includes the Falken Wildpeak AT3W, BF Goodrich KO2, Toyo Open Country AT3, and Goodyear Duratrac. I think of that bunch, the Wildpeak is still going to hold the title as the quietest of the bunch with the Nokian being pretty similar to the Toyo AT3 in terms of tread noise. Neither of them are very noisy at all, but with the Wildpeak having the most road focused tread pattern it makes sense as to why it's just a bit quieter. Speaking of the tread blocks, this was one area of pleasant surprise when I got my eyes on the tires for the first time. I don't think pictures portray how aggressive the tread block voids and sidewall design is. It is a quite aggressive all-terrain and probably fits well into the category in between a tire like the Wildpeak and something more aggressive like the Duratrac of Baja Boss AT.

I believe these to be a better overall winter performer than the WR G4 SUV tires they replaced, and mostly due to how much better they are in the way of hydroplane resistance and how much more confidently they take on snow piles/drifts on highways where there is contact with the road surface in some areas of a road lane but not the whole lane. In fresh, softer snow these have braking performance that was nearly on par with the Hakkas I had on a previous vehicle, very impressive. I would expect the Hakka to still distance itself when the surface changes to hard packed snow and especially smoother ice. But it's hands down the best performance I've experienced from an all-terrain tire.

Super impressive in snow so far!

Early impressions of the Nokian Outpost nAT are extremely positive after 2k miles of mixed weather and surfaces. Having previously traveled 40k miles on my OE BFG KO2 fitment, I was keen to try an alternative All-Terrain tire. The KO2 had become overly noisy, lacked wet grip, and were awful in packed snow and ice. Most striking, the nAT proved to be as quiet as the passenger car tires on my other vehicles. At speed, wind and engine note now dominate the audible experience rather than tire roar. Our local weather has seen 8” of snow one week and near 80d F the next, with some heavy rain tossed in the mix as well. The Nokian’s have exceeded my high expectations in all conditions. Their performance has been nothing short of confidence inspiring, a vast improvement over the KO2.

Latest Nokian Outpost nAT Reviews

Given 77% while driving a Toyota Tundra 2021 (275/60 R20) on a combination of roads for 1,000 spirited miles
This is an H rated tire which is fairy unusual for this particular size, especially in an AT configuration. Even more unusual is that this tire has A ratings for both traction and temperature. Something that Michelin or Bridgestone...doesn't appear to have in either their AS or AT configurations.

Needles to say, Nokian's specs on the Outpost nAT peaked my interests. I was looking for a slightly more aggressive replacement for a set of Continental TerrianContact H/T tires while maintaining both A ratings and an H speed rating.

The Outpost nAT handling is better than average in both dry and wet. Grip is realistically about the same in dry or wet (8.5) which is pretty amazing. Feedback is fairly good, really about the same as the Continentals. They are on a Toyota Tundra, which really isn't noted for great road feedback in the first place.

Snow grip is really great, but more importantly the off-road grip is really good. The primary reason that I was venturing toward an AT style tire in the first place. The physical sidewall protection gives an extra measure of comfort that AS tires just can't provide.

The only detractor for this tire is that it's a bit noisy (i.e. it does sing a bit at highway speeds). You don't have to raise the volume of the radio or while speaking, it's just a noise presence that wasn't there with the AS tires.

It's mildly amusing that the Nokian is apparently considered "mid-tier" while the "top-tier" Michelin and Bridgestone would appear to not carry A ratings for traction and temperature. These are government ratings that have been in place since...1979. One would think that obtaining an "A" rating in 2024 would be a cake walk.
