Latest Nokian WR Snowproof Reviews

Given 93% while driving a Toyota Verso 1.8 t2 (205/60 R16) on mostly town for 3,000 easy going miles
The tires passed the first winter with heavy snowfall on the streets, frosts down to -25C and ice on black asphalt. I am very pleased with this tire. It is a winter tire for everyday use. Fuel consumption was lower by almost a liter per 100km compared to previous tires of a similar class. The low noise level draws attention. The tire is well thought out so that it has very good results on any surface.

Given 59% while driving a BMW 320i (205/60 R15 H) on a combination of roads for 2,000 average miles
On snow these Tyres are terrible. All over the Internet i just hear ooo Nokian is producing great tyres, they know what they doing and so on. Ok bought the tyres because my old ones from Goodyear UG9 were old, loud and thread was gone too. I have BMW E46 and driving it very long time, over 100k km drove with it and you can say I have experince. Same snowy roads, same car and I can say there Tyres are rubbish. The Car ist maybe 50% stable from how it was before. In the corners it easily slips, wheather you drive 2km/h or 15km/h. At acceleration the back of the car ist "dancing" all the time. Stopping at snow is the same with the UG9. This was a big mistake to buy these Tyres, going back next time again to Goodyear!
