Nexen WinGuard WinSpike 3

Notable Features

Nexen WinGuard WinSpike 3 is a spiked winter tire with directional tread design, which the engineers of this Korean brand specially developed to be installed on passenger cars to tackle harsh weather conditions. The Nexen WinGuard WinSpike 3 is a new model of the 2020/2021 winter season. Its symmetric directional tread pattern with wide diagonal drainage grooves is meant to increase the traction and the braking efficiency on winter roads. Wide main grooves for optimized water drainage The 3D sipes in the tread blocks serve to increase the tire’s rigidity when tackling heavy loads, serving to improve the road holding ability and to reduce the stopping distances on slippery surfaces. It must be noted that the good snow performance of the new spiked Nexen model is ensured by the upgraded tread and shoulder area design. Ice Handling When designing the Nexen WinSpike 3, the engineers paid special attention to the construction of the anti-skid spikes. Their unique shape helps the hard tip to penetrate deeper into the ice. Snow Handling The use of the Star Twister technology, meant to speed up evacuation of ice chips from the fixturing points of the spikes, ensures the tire’s maximum performance on ice. Ice Braking In sizes 195/65 R15, 205/70 R15, 205/55 R16, 205/65 R16, 215/60 R16, 215/55 R17, and 225/50 R17, the Nexen WinGuard WinSpike 3 will be manufactured with an increased number of “steel teeth” installed in it (specifically, for size 205/55 R16 the manufacturer names the 190 figure), its pattern being focused on stabilizing longitudinal and transversal grip on ice and packed snow.
