Summer and winter driving versatility with Nokian Weatherproof tyres
The Nokian Weatherproof tyre concept
The concept behind Nokian Weatherproof tyres is to provide drivers with the option of having the best tyres for all seasons. They are offering the best available driving protection for summer conditions, in the rain, or the snow and slush of winter! It is a product that requires expertise in the tyre structure and associated rubber compounds. The Nokian Weatherproof tyres are an innovative development that has seen many hours of testing on a test track north of the Arctic Circle.
The superb summer character of the product was accepted in the determined form following the Nokian Weatherproof tyres undergoing severe testing on the high-speed tracks in Germany and Spain.
