Nexen WinGuard Sport 2

Manufacturer's description

Winter driving and long mileage performance are raised to the next level with the Winguard Sport 2. Its high-density multi-sipe elevates grip for braking on icy and snowy roads, simultaneously increasing longevity. Snowy or dry traction and cornering are improved with the directional tread. Large wide grooves effectively drain water for anti-hydroplaning performance.

Notable Features

Nexen WinGuard Sport 2 is a studless directional winter tire, designed by the Korean manufacturer specially for the European market. This model is a new release 2017/2018, meant to increase the driving safety on wet and snow-covered roads in mild weather conditions

The Nexen WinGuard Sport 2 came to replace the first-generation tire model Nexen/Roadstone WinGuard Sport, which has been produced since 2011. Nexen WinGuard Sport 2 If we are to compare the Nexen products of two generations, the first thing that meets the eye is the completely renewed tread pattern. The asymmetric tread design gave way to the ‚Äúgood old‚ÄĚ time-tested symmetric one ‚Äď and, probably, for a good reason.

Directional winter tires have a number of advantages. Specifically, they ensure confident driving due to dependable grip on wet and snow-covered surfaces, and, in addition, they are generally less noisy. Tread pattern The Nexen WinGuard Sport 2 tire model was specifically designed to meet the needs of the owners of powerful sports cars. It is characterized by great maneuverability and predictable highway behavior, which is definitely a plus while driving on slippery winter roads.

The directional tread design improves snow grip, as well as dry and wet traction. The large amount of 3D sipes and the five-step configuration are designed to boost the stability of handling response on snow and ice. Directional tread design The number of biting edges, increased by 17% in comparison to the predecessor model, promises a high level of safety in any winter weather conditions. In addition, the tread compound with a high content of silica ensures improvement in wet traction, as well as long tread life due to the innovative polymers that it includes, which also keep the tire frost resistant and supple under low temperatures.

This friction winter tire can also be encountered under the name of Roadstone WinGuard Sport 2.
