Top 3 Nokian WR G4 Reviews

Given 90% while driving a Chevrolet Spark (190/45 R15) on a combination of roads for 80,000 average miles
Bought these tires for a road trip from Vancouver to Edmonton figuring I might need them to climb through the Rocky Mountains. These all weather tires are fantastic in wet conditions I drive a Chevy Spark and these tires are so much better than the standard tires that came equipped with the car. They are also great when you hit potholes and were problem free when i had to drive 70km on gravel roads to get to a distant Hot Spring near Radium Hot Springs. I only drove a bit on packed snow near Edmonton but it gripped well. I am looking forward to a snowfall in Vancouver to really put them through the snow test. I have been recommending these tires to all my friends and workmates. Not sure how long they will last because they are a softer compound than my old all season tires. All said I am very happy with the investment in these tires I could have bought cheaper all weather tires but I'm glad i paid a little extra for these tires.

Given 91% while driving a Subaru Outback (225/65 R17) on a combination of roads for 18 average miles
These tires are excellent for year round driving in Toronto, Canada. They are well suited to all poor road surfaces and potholes that we have to live with. They are quiet and durable. I have had them on my Subaru Outback 3.6r since MARCH 2019. No complaints and and I will buy them again.

Given 81% while driving a Kia Motors Niro (225/45 R17) on mostly country roads for 47,000 easy going miles
Great tires in the winter. Confidently overtaking on the highway in slush, great grip in the rain and good performance in summer. At about 47000 miles tires are at about 4/32”. Expecting to last 60-65k miles overall. One issue is some dry rot on the sidewall (small cracks) as well as harsh vibrations at about 15-20 mph traffic creeping. Regardless, for 165$ I highly recommend!

Given 87% while driving a Kia Motors Telluride (245/60 R18) on a combination of roads for 53,000 average miles
I live in Toronto, Ontario (Canada). Primary motivation to get these tires are to avoid the hassle of changing tires for the summer & winter season. To have set of tires that takes care of all and good for insurance, that is winter rate, 3 Mountain Peak + Show Flake. I drove 1,200Km through snow storm from St Louis ( US ) to Toronto. I drove back and forth from Toronto to Calgary during the last 2 weeks of December through snow storm & at temperatures varying from -27c to -38c. I have also used these tires through Kms of gravel roads, unpaved roads, Ontario Crown Land ( equivalent US BLM ) for light off roading. In all these conditions, these tires lived up to its promise. Specially, during winter snow & ice, I didn't feel the difference between my winter tire experience & this all weather experience. Previously I have used Firestone & Hankook dedicate Winter Tires. Not much of road noise but as the treads wear off to the finish maker, the road noise increases to humming sound, as if the wheel bearing got worn off. Would buy them again, but Nokian now had Outpost. This 2022 winter, planning to mount those. I recommend these WRG4 to everybody.

Given 78% while driving a Mercedes Benz E350 (/40 R18) on a combination of roads for 40,000 spirited miles
Do yourself a favor, buy a tire pressure gauge with a tread depth meter combined. Also buying these means you'll watch most other drivers struggle. 40k miles or 65 Km 245/40 97Y 18in Square on a staggered wheel setup. My rear wheels do accept 245/40 (8.5 to 9in width) but stock rears are 265/35 18 fyi. Initial impression was a lot better than the Continental ContiProContact MO stock tires. I've used the ContiProContacts on a FWD Passat and they were great, but wide sizes, they just float and wiggle in the rain. The difference is night and day on a RWD car. I think the Passat had 225 or skinnier. The stock Conti only win in wear, noise and comfort. The Nokian WRG4, I specifically bought for wintery mix driving. I drive ride share and I do roughly 250 to 500 miles per day, 7 days a week and I don't drive slow. These tires are TEMP sensitive and TIRE Pressure sensitive. Dry Temps: under 90° f you're fine as long as you're not speeding over 80mph otherwise jelly effect until you get down to around 6mm wear depth. Temps under 45° f these tires are amazing. Anything above 95° f they turn to jelly if you're doing over 70mph. Otherwise they're normal. Omg and they save you gas. Wet Temps: Warm wet temps you can feel the tread blocks moving. The car isn't, is not hydroplaning or anything, but it's just an unnerving feeling. At the same time I've gotten used to it and I can feel what the car is doing. I'm assuming FWD would be more stable at higher speeds. This might just be my car suspension setup but I could take a 30mph tight U shape ramp at 50mph with no tire screeching and only minimal understeer while in SPORT. Only car that's kept up was a C7 Vette and a Porsche Cayman. Tire pressure, since I drive so much, I keep track of tire pressure everyday. Also I didn't rotate these tires. The front were amazing and literally only have a variance between 7mm outside, 6mm middle and inner on the front. Very normal wear and could easily go another 40k or more. The rears were the issue. I'd say more on Mercedes alignment, the inner wore bad, meaning more toe in angle. I'm going to replace the rear suspension soon to see if that fixes that but I read a WRG3 review with the same problem but on a FWD car. My DWS06 265/35 18 rears (20k miles 4.5mm inner, 5mm middle and outside), it's wearing evenly. I think I'm going to buy a set of DWS06 Plus for the front and keep these other tires as spares. Once the rears wear down to 2mm I'll swap them for 245/40 18. Durability: they did well until I hit a skinny deep pot hole. Both passenger sides needed to be replaced (after 40k and a full winter) Noise/Comfort: they have a howl similar to going through a tunnel. They were comfortable, like a touring tire. Great alternative to snow tires. You can run them all year round. My biggest complaint is warm wet weather driving. You really can't go over 60mph in heavy rain while they're new. Once they wore down to 5mm warm wet weather was less of an issue. I drove someone 2hrs towards the Eastern Shore in a torrential downpour with heavy cross winds and it did very well in 55° f. I'd still carry a small shovel in the winter if your car is low.
