Expert Review

If you've never heard of the Nokian brand before, that's okay. Nokian is a tire manufacturer based in Finland, and their winter tires are suitable for the harshest winter conditions around the world. The WR G2, though, is not a true winter tire. It may look like one at first glance, but this is in fact an all-season tire which boasts class-leading winter performance. Nokian refers to this model as an 'All-Weather Plus' tire, meaning you can leave these on your car year-round and not have to worry about varying weather conditions. While it's unfair to expect the sort of dry weather performance and handling you get from max performance summer tires, the WR G2 has very little of the 'slop' associated with a winter tire when driven in good weather. It's important to keep in mind that while the WR G2 may be a good choice for year-round driving on a single set of tires, it cannot possibly perform as well as two dedicated sets of tires for the weather conditions. Rating: 4/5
