Nokian WR A3
Forget the forecast
The Nokian WR A3 winter tyre wins the 2012 winter tyre test by the German car magazine “Auto Bild”, earning the top rating “exemplary”. “Auto Bild” praises the Nokian WR A3: “Strengths: exemplary handling qualities on snowy, wet and dry surfaces, stable directional control and precise steering response, shortest wet and dry braking distances, low fuel consumption”.
The Nokian WR A3 is optimised for efficient cars with a special emphasis placed on the tyre's precise and sensitive driving at higher speeds. This environmentally friendly premium product feature nanotechnology, canola oil and the solid winter expertise of Nokian Tyres, which guarantee reliable functionality in the typically varying winter conditions of Central Europe.
Nanobase for optimal stability
The sporty Nokian WR A3 has an asymmetrical inside-outside tread pattern that enables reliable grip without compromising high-speed driving properties. The inner shoulder design enhances the removal of water and slush.
The Nanobase structure enabled by nanotechnology improves the tyre's steering properties and control when driving in corners, changing lanes and dodging. The tyre has exemplary control properties in extreme situations on both slippery surfaces and roads offering a firm grip.
The tread rubber compound, the Cryogenic Canola Compound, is a novel combination of natural rubber, silica and canola oil that optimises winter grip, wet grip and wear resistance in varying temperatures.
The golfball-like Silent Groove Design for a more pleasant response and higher mileage
The semi-round cavities on the sides of the longitudinal ribs, resembling a golf ball pattern, cool the Nokian WR A3 by minimizing the heat emission and make it more durable and safe even at high speeds. This innovation, called Silent Groove Design, also reduces drag and ensures better mileage thanks to lower fuel consumption. Moreover, it successfully minimises the inside and pass-by noise of the vehicle.
The Silent Sidewall Technology increases driving comfort. Distinct zone in the sidewall filters the noise and vibration emitted from the road surface through the tyre tread and relays it to the bead area to reduce the noise heard inside the vehicle.
Winter Safety Indicator for added safety and comfort
Flawless winter driving is possible only if the tyres are in good condition. Nokian WR A3 is equipped with the comfort-adding Driving Safety Indicator (DSI) with the unique snowflake symbol, the Winter Safety Indicator.
Patented by Nokian Tyres, this standard element located on the tyre's tread blocks indicates the depth of the main grooves in millimetres. The snowflake symbol remains visible until the groove depth is four millimetres.
The tyre sidewalls have the familiar info area for tyre pressure recommendations. The right tyre pressure makes steering more accurate, reduces tyre damage and lowers fuel costs.
- Absolute grip and excellent handling in all winter conditions
- Stable and easy to control even at high speeds
