Nokian WRG3 – All-Season Vs. All-Weather Tires Explained

nokian wrg3The term “All-Season” is loosely used by tire manufacturers to describe a tire’s winter capabilities because, in reality, all-season tires are not designed for cold temperatures and snow.

Nokian coined the phrase “All-Weather” tires with the North American winter in mind. And the Nokian all-weather WRG3 is perfect for New England driving conditions.

You get the best of both worlds: A great blend of safety, comfort, and performance. packaged in an environmentally friendly tire….

Nokian WRG3 tires are the tire geeks tire – Packed full of cool technology and features with real benefits…like:

  • Silent Sidewall Technology that uses dimples in the tire’s grooves, like a golf ball, to give a quiet ride.
  • Sidewall Serrations to absorb noise waves and cool the tire for longer life.
  • Polished Lateral and Inside Grooves that give excellent wet traction by helping the ground water flow easier through the tire’s channels.
  • Self-locking 3D sipes on the center rib of the tire that support it both longitudinally and diagonally minimizing heat generation and improving the wear resistance of the tire. The self-locking 3D sipes make the tire extremely durable.

Nokian’s all-weather tires are like having winter tires on year round, without sacrificing treadwear or ride comfort. 

And it gets better! This premium tire has impressive low rolling resistance, a mainstay of Nokian Tires’ innovation, to save fuel and reduce carbon emissions. Nokian’s production process uses earth friendly materials like canola oil and purified oils to help reduce the environmental impact of the tire.

Silent sidewall technology helps to reduce the annoying whistling noise that comes from the air rushing through the grooves of the tires at highway speeds. Small indentations in the walls of the longitudinal grooves control the air flow through the tire’s tread and prevent any unpleasant whistling sounds. The design reduces noise levels inside the vehicle, which makes driving pleasantly quiet. The Silent Groove Design also improves heat distribution which helps to cool the tire and improve wear resistance.

The eNTYRE 2.0 uses a unique tread pattern, new groove designs, a modern silica compound, and noise dampening technologies to greatly improve dry road handling, aquaplaning properties, and wet grip without compromising winter grip, all while decreasing noise levels and increasing tread life.

About Tire Cracking and Dry Rot

All tires develop tread or sidewall cracks over time – Just like humans, it’s usually a sign of aging.

Most drivers will wear out the tread before tire cracking ever becomes an issue. But just like tire blooming, tire cracking is common on vehicles that don’t get driven much – Trailers, RV’s, and classic and collector cars, your grandma’s car or church’s van.  On these vehicles, it’s possible the tires need to be replaced before they’re worn out.

Just like a 65-year-old person, your tires may look good and be holding air just fine, but put them under load on a 105-degree day and you’re inviting trouble. Most tire manufacturers recommend replacing tires every 6 years whether they’re worn out or not.

Most tire manufacturers recommend replacing tires every 6 years whether they’re worn out or not.

Tire cracking is also known as “dry-rot” and happens when the rubber starts to break down due to ozone. UV, and road salt.  You can reduce sidewall cracking by using a protectant with anti-ozinant, sunscreen, and a conditioner.  I recommend staying away from silicone or petroleum based tire cleaners that work too good and will deplete the tire’s protection and warranty even more.

Tire cracking can also be a manufacturing defect. We use Michelin’s guidelines to determine if your tire cracking is cosmetic (non-warrantable), or severe (warrantable), and will go to bat for you with tire cracking, or any other manufacturing defect when needed.
