They’re as tough on fresh snow as they are on bare asphalt, even on the Autobahn. The Nokian WR G2 and G3 are the newest members of an all-weather tire family that’s storming the winter tire market.

While they were initially designed for the high speeds and diverse weather faced by drivers in Europe, the WR G2 and G3, exclusive to Kal Tire, are quickly becoming one of North America’s most popular tires. Why? Nokian’s all-weather tires are premium winter tires that double as superior summer tires.

Recently dubbed “a winter tire you can use all year long” by Consumer Reports, the WR G3 is impressing both drivers and auto journalists alike because it offers extreme performance on every kind of road condition.

Snowy roads

Unlike all-season tires, the Nokian WR G2 and G3 all-weather tires bear the severe service snowflake mountain symbol so you know it’s passed all the requirements to be considered a winter tire. In fact, the WR G2 SUV was designed as a high performance winter tire for year-round use.

This all-weather tire stays flexible in low temperatures to give you strong grip on snow and precise braking on ice because of its naturally derived rubber compound made with silica and canola oil.

Wet and slushy roads

The WR G2 and G3 prevent aquaplaning and stop instantly on wet roads because of a distinctive asymmetrical tread pattern inside and out. This tire also employs an innovative slush edge to push snow and water to the side for extra grip in slippery conditions.

The WR G2 and G3 also get superior traction on wet roads because water slides off the tire’s unique polished grooves.

Dry roads

Pioneered by the winter tire experts at Nokian and tested 300 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle, this all-weather tire offers impeccable handling on bare asphalt as well as spring showers or winter blizzards. The WR G2 and G3 offer extreme stability and grip, even at high speeds on dry roads too.

All year long

Whatever the temperature or even your driving style, you’ll appreciate the Nokian WR G3’s sensitive driving response. The all-weather tire offers first-class safety as well as economy.

You’ll also enjoy a long tread life due in part to the tear-resistant natural oils in the compound. With such a durable tread, you’ll get good mileage throughout the seasons.

Plus, a new innovation called the silent groove design uses golf ball-like cavities to minimize noise, cool the tire and reduce drag for better mileage. Since the WR G2 and G3 rolls easily, you’ll consume less fuel and emit less CO2.
