Volvo XC60 D5 AWD Auto Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Nokian Snowproof 2 SUV given 94% (235-55-19-)
Driving on mostly motorways for 8000 average miles
Driving these tyres on my Volvo XC60 D5 AWD in Switzerland since October 2023 for 13000 km.
What amazed me with those tyres is the grip and security they give during heavy raining or slush. They provided excellent control at high speed during a heavy snow storm in Germany in December while the highway was not properly cleaned. And they are always secure through water puddles on the highway or when driving through heavy rain.
One drawback is the increased fuel consumption (~1 liter/100 km) while driving on rain.
There is noticeable tread wear on the front axle but I did not measure the remaining tread depth, yet.
One characteristic is the noticeable noise and steering wheel vibration during cornering at low speeds (10-20 km/h).
The highway driving noise is particularly high pitched, but not disturbing.
I am satisfied with these tyres and would recommend them for anyone driving through snow, slush or rain.
Dry braking seems a bit worse than with the summer Continental Premium Contact 6 tyres, but was never a practical issue.

Driving on mostly motorways for 5000 average miles
Around 8000 km driven with these summer tyres since April 2023 (5 months).
Grip is excellent and the car feels safe on the road. Wet grip is great and driving on highway (120-130 kmph) in strong rain did not show any issue. Even during aquaplaning in bigger puddles the car kept its direction and did not feel like losing control.
The only thing I have observed is that fuel consumption increases with 0.5 to 1 liter per 100 km when driving on wet highways.
They have around 6.5 - 7mm tread depth left on both axles and I can not still pronounce myself about the wear as I did not measure the new tyres' tread depth.
Did not have to use the brakes strongly in an emergency, but they seem efficient with normal breaking, both in dry and wet. Maybe wet breaking feedback is better and they seem to 'stick' to the road, but it's just a personal feeling.
The label says that the noise level is 72dB, supposedly noisy tyres, but my experience is that there is no noticeable noise from inside during driving on dry roads with smooth surfaces. On roads with rough surfaces there is noise, of course.
The overall experience is a good one and I would recommend them, especially for their wet performance.

Driving on a combination of roads for 3000 average miles
Although its a bit pricey (and loud as they say, I dont care it it is loud as long as it is the safest), it will be my next purchase. Great tyre.

Driving on mostly country roads for 5000 easy going miles
Poor performance coupled with even poorer quality. After two years of winer use only tires showed very fine cracking on the surface of the thread. At first Nokian declined to consider even looking at them (in Germany) however later they realised that it was a problem and some customers were compensated. Too late for me as I disposed of them already at the loss. Same happened with a Z-Line tires. Both models were made in Russia. Never I will even look at Nokian again.

Driving on a combination of roads for 7000 easy going miles
One of the best tyres! I had before pirelli scorpion zero, but they were too harsh. It felt like I had no tyres. Michelin 4s are so comfort. You have that feeling that everything is under control. On wet is like on dry, excellent

Got these tyres with purchase in Aug 2018. Took care of rotation at each 8000km intervals and regular pressure check

Enjoyed these tyres, but they have only given me 26,000 miles over 3 years, tread down to 3mm.

Driving on a combination of roads for 10000 easy going miles
If you can afford to replace them every year ,well yes, it is an excellent tyre. Ok the Volvo is heavy and strong but you just expect more from premium tyres that cost an arm and a leg, especially when not pushing them to the limit and adopting a easy going drive style.

Driving on mostly town for 9000 easy going miles
Excellent tyre, but spending 1,300€ for 12-15k kilometers is a waste. Very disappointing wear capabilities.

Not very impressed with these as they wear more. Dry grip is ok but not great and grip in the wet is very poor pulling away. They spin too easily especially as they are on an AWD Volvo grip on mud or poor also bad.

Driving on mostly country roads for 10 average miles

Purchased 4 Nokian Weatherproof tyres 18 months ago and covered less than 10,000 miles in that period , I am now having to replace them as all 4 tyres have deep cracks between the tread and I fear they are unsafe to drive on.
On doing some internet searching I found this seems to be common with these tyres with the ones made in Russia (check for yourself )
