Building off the success of earlier versions, Nokian’s fourth-generation WRG4 is about as good as it gets for an all-weather tire. It delivers the precision handling, durability and treadlife of a three-season tire, with the added benefit of excellent cold-weather performance. In fact, the lowest mark this tire received in our independent testing was merely ‘very good.’ Everything else was deemed excellent. Whether you’re driving on wet or dry highways, in traffic, or gripping the road in thick snow and slush, the WRG4 seems to do everything exceptionally well. The tire tread features a fan-like rib pattern on the inner shoulder, which, along with functional tread blocks and Blade Groves, helps to route rain, snow and slush away from the tread path. This tire’s ability to deliver the complete package lies in its unique all-weather dual performance compound, which ensures excellent wear resistance, fuel savings and a quiet ride. Not available in Quebec.

?Summer vs Winter Tests

BRAKING

We varied our approach speeds by driving surface and by season for two reasons. First, this represents how most Canadians would normally drive on that surface in each season. Second, testing in both seasons provides an indication of how a tire's performance will be affected by road temperature.

CORNERING

To understand how road surface temperatures affect the cornering performance of a tire, our cornering tests are completed in both summer conditions (dry and wet pavement, and gravel roads) and winter conditions (dry, wet and icy pavement). Please note that slush is also tested but completed in a specific slush cornering test..

?Independent & Objective Testing

The independent tire testers conducted extensive tests to determine how the tires in our core line-up perform in a range of conditions in both summer and winter. To maintain neutrality, no driver knew the specifics of the tires they were testing each time. All results were analyzed and processed by the testing group and then provided to Kal Tire for sharing with our customers.

Solid All Round Tyres

The difference is night and day. Used contipro contact all seasons last winter and had a few close calls. With my Nokia WRG4s, my ABS rarely ever kicks in, taking corners at speed is a breeze, and the grip and stopping control is phenomenal.
Their performance is optimal in cold, slushy, icy or wet weather. In hot dry weather, kinda feels like I'm driving on soft squishy rubber, with way more resistance that I prefer.

Very happy with the new tires although it is just the beginning of winter. What stands out more is the service Kal Tire provided prior to the purchase.

Quiet Tires

I drive an EV. This tire is quieter than the stock Michelin Primacy MXV4 all season tire on dry and wet pavement. Noticed that there is a slight squeeling sound when driving over tar snakes though.

So far so good.
Purchased this all weather tire with intent to be taking road trips into snow and ice prone mountainous regions. Haven't had the chance snow and ice yet, might update review in the future.
