The presented tyre is marked with 3PMSF symbol (Three Peak Mountain Snow Flake). It means that the tyre meets the EU requirements for winter tyres. The symbol is awarded after thorough tests of a tyre model in terms of snow grip.

The Nokian WR A4 is a premium-range winter tyre featuring an asymmetric tread pattern. This is the ideal choice for high-power vehicles. The state-of-the-art technology used in this model guarantees an exceptionally safe and comfortable drive.

The tread of the Nokian WR A4 features cutting-edge Functional Performance Siping blades and a Performance Traction Silica rubber compound, but these are only the basic components of the model's sophisticated design. It is the details that really make the difference. The Nokian WR A4 allows for hassle-free driving in rapidly changing winter conditions.

The benefits offered by the Nokian WR A4 include stability when driving through snowstorms, slush or pouring rain or on sun-scorched asphalt, which encourages higher speeds. The central part of the tyre features a Centipede Siping blade, the design of which is inspired by nature and which improves grip even further in winter conditions. How does it work? The jagged blades resemble a centipede. They effectively bite into the surface, improving control over the vehicle.

A stiffened shoulder (side area) provides tyre stability, preventing the tyre from "gliding". This is particularly important when driving at high speeds or performing dynamic manoeuvres. A variety of tread block sizes are linked to each other with support lifts to make sure that they do not move during acceleration.

The self-locking 3D blades on the tyre surface improve transverse rigidity, while the specially designed arrangement of grooves ("Coanda Technology") improves water dispersal. Nokian's copyrighted solution makes it possible to maintain stability during sudden changes in weather conditions.

The Nokian WR A4 provides not only safety, but also comfort and cost-effectiveness. The special rubber compound increases the durability of the model, reduces tyre noise (by reducing the vibrations transferred to the rim and to the interior of the vehicle) and lowers rolling resistance.

The performance of the Nokian WR A4 is the result of tests carried out at the "White Hell" testing centre in Ivalo (Lapland), which examined the tyre's behaviour in the most extreme winter conditions. Its grip on dry and wet surfaces was also tested on tracks in Germany and Spain. The Nokian WR A4 is a tyre you can rely on.

Nokian is Europe's northernmost tyre manufacturer. The Finnish company brought the first winter tyre to market and has been improving its product range successfully ever since. The brand's tyres are noted for their superb quality and regularly come out top in tests.

WR A4 Reviews

This year I took the plunge and bought a set of WR A4s despite the lack of online reviews. I was attracted by its assymetrical design and overall inclination towards wet&dry conditions, as Romania only has snow for about two-three weeks a year. After driving a few hundred miles with them on my Mk5 GTI, I have to say they match the character of the car very well. I have to start by saying these didn't give me the impression of an expensive premium tyre without drawbacks, but I think they are a good choice for people who drive fast and/or have "sporty" cars. In terms of grip there is nothing bad to say about them, I've driven on both dry and wet roads (no ice/snow yet) and they had no problems coping with some very spirited driving. I enjoyed my car both in high-speed driving on mountain roads and under heavy rain with these tires. The best thing about them is that they made the balance of the car very pleasant, as it has moved from heavy, eeek, horrible, hateful understeer to a small amount of safe FWD understeer which can be easily overcome if you know what you're doing. Back to the Nokians: as they are winter tyres, they are very soft when compared to a summer tyre (local temperatures are at about 5-10 degrees Celsius) and this results in the chassis having a lot of small movements from the tyre flex. At first you think this isn't a good thing for a sporty car, but it turned out to be a lot of fun without affecting stability or road feeback. Of course, this softness also increases the roll in corners, but it also makes the car become very progressive. I'd say in the dry and wet they are very good indeed for a winter tyre. Except the extra tyre flex, the only drawback so far is the extra noise compared to my summer tyres (Dunlop Sport Maxx RT). This might be or might not be related to my wheel alignment; I'm saying this because I didn't hear as much tyre drone at constant speed, as I heard a high-pitch sound when applying torque (accelerating) to the tyres at speed. This also varies with the surface you're driving on, but overall these are definitely not the least "vocal" winter tyres out there. Overall I am very satisfied with the performances of these tires. They aren't the most silent and they are quite soft at higher temperatures. However, having good road feedback and grip, allowing some little movements of the chassis thus making the car more playful and having a good balance between understeer and oversteer, make me recommend these tyres to anyone passionate about spirited driving. These might be one of the best choices for spirited driving in countries with changing weather, except the expensive premium options (of which there is a complete lack in this size). The WR A4s are fun and they give you confidence, the most important two things for a hot hatch like a GTI. I'm waiting for the snow to hit Romania to see how they handle the white stuff.
Mercedes Viano rear wheel drive Vs 4X4 in the snow no contest Merc wins every time. These tryres have allowed the rear wheel drive people carrier to drive on roads up hill when a Range Rover and a Land rover got stuck!! I just pulled passed them nd carried on.
Instant difference to car handling, much much better than stock Michelin tyres that where on from new! Much reduced road noise, much better grip in dry and wet conditions than other reviewers had given. I was initially a little sceptical, but really unjustified. A very competent tyre in all settings. Done 3.5k miles in them now and its a joy to drive the car with them on. You can get very leary in them and you know where you stand and what will happen if you push too far, there are no surprises with these tyres. Done long motorway journeys in them and well as short hops between local villages. Its going to be hard to replace them with as comfortable summer tyres with the same attributes.
