Notable Features

Nokian WR Snowproof P is a friction-type directional tire with a sports character, created to give the drivers confidence in the ever-changing weather conditions of the Central Europe. The designers paid special attention to optimizing the tire’s grip on wet pavement and snow, improving the steering response, and increasing the ride comfort, as well as reducing the rolling resistance.

The Nokian WR Snowproof P came to replace the Nokian WR A4 model in 2020, from which it differs with a symmetric directional tread pattern, which is really quite unusual for high-performance tires.

According to the manufacturer, moving from the asymmetric tread pattern to directional and symmetric ensures the predictable and controlled behavior in all conditions and improves overall safety of the WR Snowproof P (specifically, slushplaning resistance), which ensures more predictable behavior of the vehicle on winter roads. The predictable handling response and the riding comfort provided by Nokian Snowproof P are ensured by a new concept called Alpine Performance. The concept consists of an optimized tread pattern combined with specially tailored, dense siping, and new Alpine Performance compound. Directing the evacuation of water and slush from the contact patch The tread design of Snowproof P is meant to maximize the tire’s contact area, at the same time increasing the crispness of the steering response and improving the traction – says the technical expert of Shina Guide. Optimization of the contact patch led to more balanced tread wear, which increased the tire’s running life. Rigid central rib The implementation of the new Tread Block Support Matrix ensures stable road feel and quick steering feedback both at high speeds and in tough winter conditions. Tread Block Support Matrix One of the main dangers in the wintertime is slushy roads. Designed to prevent dangerous slushplaning, the new tread comes with dense siping and connected grooves, which effectively remove water and slush between the tire and the road. The Polished Grooves also accelerate the removal of water, providing added safety and assisting drivers in the rain, while giving the tire a polished, stylish look. Dense siping The multifaceted Snow Claws provide balanced grip on ice and snow, particularly when braking and accelerating. These Snow Claws are evenly distributed between the tread blocks and in the shoulder areas, also ensuring balanced traction on loose snow. The Snow Claws The Brake and Acceleration Boosters with a sawtooth pattern on the tread blocks do their part to improve the longitudinal grip. The Brake and Acceleration Boosters The new-generation Alpine Performance rubber compound is designed to handle a wide temperature range. While powering through the demanding and cold winter days, Nokian Snowproof P is a steady performer also in milder weather. The Nokian Snowproof P state-of-the-art tread compound ensures extra traction on wet pavement, cutting down the vehicle’s negative impact on the environment, at the same time reducing the tire’s rolling resistance, which leads to optimization of fuel consumption.
