    Nokian Winter

    Hat jemand schon erfahrung mit Winter Nokian V/Y ???

    Re: Nokian Winter

    Sorry for the English reply. I'm using babble fish to read your message. Maybe someone [RC?] will translate.

    We (I and friends) use Nokian snows almost exclusively here in New England. They aren't that common but from experience we've learned that they are the very best for snow. I highly recommend them as first choice if they will fit the car you have.

    I tried to buy them in Belgium but could not. The distributor told me that they cannot buy them because the factory is worried that they will be grey marketed back to Scandinavia and Finland where they are made and where tyre prices are much, much higher.

    The official reason was that they were not safe in the warmer climate because they were formulated for very cold conditions. But this is b.s. else they wouldn't sell them in the USA where the temps are much higher than anywhere in Europe. Nonetheless, I would be careful with them when it is very warm out (basically make sure you don't try to use the snows in the summer months).

    Highly recommended for winter driving.

    Hope this helps.

    Stephen, I guess gary is referring to the W rated Nokian winter tire which is approved up to 270 kph. The only winter tire in the world with that speed rating.

    Stephen, ich denke gary meint den Nokian Winterreifen mit W Speed Index, der bis 270 km/h zugelassen ist. Der einzige Winterreifen der Welt mit diesem Speed Index.

    Re: Nokian Winter

    270 km/h is very impressive for a snow tyre ...

    After hearing this I'm very curious about them. Could they be as good as the slower tyres they make? The slower tyres seem to work so well because the rubber is formulated for very cold conditions and because the tyre retains heat very well -- both traits you don't want in high speed conditions. So have they sacrificed traction for high speed performance?
