Chev 2500HD, 4dr,7ft box, 245-75R-16 E, only got 51,000km out of theses tires. Bad cupping at 45,000km, had suspension and alignment checked and were not the problem. They performed ok till cupping but, this is very poor mileage considering the price paid. I would not reccomend. (read more)

I got less than 20,000 miles out of these and they are already going bald. I had to have them rotated every other month because they made such a noise. The are the worst all season tire I have ever purchased. They are terrible on wet roads (read more)

I have had to have them rebalanced serveral times in 1st month of ownership. They seem to be still vibrating and I can tell if it just the tire or a balancing issue. I have to say if I had to do it again, I would choose another brand. They claim to have low rolling resisitance but I think it is because they are soooo hard. That is why I feel every pebble in the roard... They were also over $800.00 CAD and I expected a much better tire for this price. (read more)

195/55 R16 Nokian WR M+S all season.
In all fairness this tire simply doesn't work with my XRS. The wet weather grip is severely below what I would expect for this wintery all season tire. Any exuberance from a stoplight in the rain causes a wheel to spin and pedestrians to stare or look back. And it gets ten times worse if I'm starting on a hill. It seems okay on the highway but I did have some hydroplane incidents after a heavy rain fall. Standing start dry grip is below average for a... (read more)

I give tires some pretty rough use. I live in Montana where in the winter it regularly gets -35 degrees F and dumps huge accumulations of snow and ice. Then in the summer it gets over 100 degrees at times and 90-95 is common. Choosing a tire that will work for all my situations is tough. I do a fair bit of off road driving, gravel and dirt road driving, and a lot of highway driving in the summer. I had a pair of Toyo open road A/T that gave me great on road performance and I got 75,000 miles... (read more)

Purchased the Nokian All Season tires (265 70 17) and had them mounted during a snowstorm that deposited 16 inches. From the moment I left the shop I could tell these tires gripped VERY well, about as good as my Revos did, which cost a lot more, two trucks ago. These tires replaced my Hankooks, which completely sucked in rain, let alone snow. Back to the Vatiiva A/T. Breaking hard in snow, very little slippage. The day prior, my Hankooks with ABS braking, locked up from 50 yards out and into... (read more)

Great tires. Buying a 2nd set for my new car. I've only had these for 5000km and so far they are problem free. Gives me confidence that I will get anywhere I want to go in the most snowy conditions. Looks nice and meaty for SUVs (read more)

In my experience this is the worst tracking all season tire I have ever used. The tire was fine for summer use, but my handling is unstable in any depth of snow over a dusting. I skid when stopping at any speed above 8 mph in snow. (read more)

I purchased these tires for winter driving in southern co. Haak 2 eco stud 195/65 /R15. I used these tires for approx 500miles, they were dismounted and correctly stored for summer. Upon re-mounting for winter, one of the tires showed 2 grapefruit size protrusions on the sidewall. Remember these tires had been in storage and not in use. The rubber was so thin I could almost push my finger through the protrusions.'
The tire was sent back to Denver CO, Nokian rep, which told me the damage was... (read more)

I bought a full set of Nokian 205/55 V16 all season tyres for my Saab 9000 Aero (225bhp) in January 2004. The total price, including fitting/valves and balancing was £240.
I am just about to replace them this week i.e. 31st January 2006, and there is still about 4mm of tread left after 41,000 miles on a heavy 4 wheel drive car. They have never lost traction or needed re-balancing! (read more)
