Nokian WR G2 SUV
Ultimate slush performance for SUV driving
The new Nokian WR G2 SUV was developed with the needs of European SUV drivers in mind. When designing this high-performance winter tyre, Nokian Tyres’ winter experts focused on consumer wishes. Special attention was paid to the tyres’ handling properties, particularly at high speeds and on all kinds of road surfaces.
The Nokian WR G2 SUV is excellent for driving on snowy roads and bare asphalt at high speeds. The tyre’s excellent slush properties have not been achieved by sacrificing other basic features of a good, balanced winter tyre. The Nokian WR G2 SUV is not afraid of water: it holds its grip, remains stable and stops precisely on wet and watery surfaces.
Thanks to the splined centre rib, the Nokian WR G2 SUV rolls sensitively and easily. Lightly rolling tyres consume less fuel, which, consequently, reduces CO2 emissions.
A stable tyre with a good grip on snowy, wet and dry surfaces
The slush grip of the new product is based on new technical ideas and innovations: the slush edge, an asymmetrical tread design and polished grooves.
The new innovation, the power on/off stabiliser, enhances the safety and driving properties of the tyre in all situations, especially during rapid acceleration.
The rubber compound of the Nokian WR G2 SUV combines silica and plant-based canola oil, which is derived from a natural raw material. This compound improves the tyre’s wet properties and handling properties. The natural oil provides improved resistance to tear and better grip in cool weather.
Efficient wet grip when braking
The outermost sipe on the tyre shoulder is a completely straight zigzag sipe. Optimised for SUV use, this siping provides good snow grip.
