Notable Features

Nokian WR Snowproof is a friction winter tire that was developed specially for the motorists of Central Europe. It is characterized by high hydroplaning and slushplaning resistance, which ensures a high level of driving safety during sudden snowfalls and on slushy roads. A new winter model 2019/2020. Nokian WR Snowproof According to the manufacturer, the premium winter tire Nokian WR Snowproof is a masterful combination of the tire maker’s Scandinavian experience and deep understanding of the Alpine winter, adapting easily to unpredictable weather variations, which makes it the perfect options for various winter trips.

At the heart of the Nokian WR Snowproof is the Alpine Sense Grip concept that allows the tire to adapt itself to a wide range of conditions – from wet roads to slush-ridden city streets, from snowy autobahns to scenic mountain routes. Components of the Alpine Sense Grip concept Each tread block and each sipe of the WR Snowproof play their part, ensuring safe and comfortable driving. The handling response is well-balanced and provides full control of the car even in the most unexpected conditions. This is further ensured by the time-tested technologies, already used in other Nokian winter models. The “Snow Claws” of the Snowproof model For example, the “Snow Claws”, hidden in the longitudinal and transverse grooves, are designed to strengthen the tire’s grip on loose and packed snow, as well as on ice-covered roads. Brake Boosters The special elements named “Brake Boosters” are situated on the rear edges of the tread blocks on the tire sidewalls. They increase the size of the Nokian Snowproof contact patch, which improves braking performance, particularly on snow. The central section of the tread of the Nokian WR Snowproof The wide central rib of this tire model is characterized by extra stiffness, which not only ensures the vehicle’s road-holding ability, but also stabilizes the tire at high speeds. The shape of the tread blocks in the central section, combined with a dense sipe network, enhances the edge effect and ensures stable handling response in any winter conditions. The tire shoulder areas The wide shoulder areas increase stability and improve handling response. During acceleration/braking, the zigzagged sharp edges open up and close, thus improving the tire’s grip on wet pavement. The deep lamellas increase the stiffness of the tread blocks on the shoulder area, which results in crisp steering response. Polished drainage grooves The polished drainage grooves help to quickly dispel snow, water, and slush from the contact area, which ensures predictable road behavior of the WR Snowproof.

Another thing that must be mentioned is the Silent Sidewall technology. There is a special zone on the tire’s sidewall that cancels whatever noise and vibrations are coming up from the road surface through the tread. It muffles the noise, ensuring a smoother and more comfortable ride. Alpine Grip rubber compound The Nokian WR Snowproof, adapted to various vagaries of the weather and high speeds, ensures extra traction on wet pavement, at the same time extending the tire’s resistance to wear. In combination with the tread pattern, it further optimizes fuel consumption due to reducing the tire’s rolling resistance.

UPD: according to the results of independent tire tests, the Nokian WR Snowproof model became, in our opinion, the biggest disappointment of the winter season 2019/2020.
