Finnish Quality, Exceptional Price

I bought four of these for my 2011 BMW 328i in 225 45 17. I replaced tires that cost considerably more and I must say I'm happier with the Nokian brand. Notably, the handling is superb and the noise minimal. I live in Portland, Oregon where it rains constantly and the roads are fairly poor. Despite these conditions, the Nokian tires are holding up well. On a side note, this company needs to do a better job advertising the fact that these are designed and sold by a company in Finland. Most US consumers, like the Nokia mobile phones of old, confuse this brand with some generic Japanese company they've never heard of. If people were to understand this product comes from Scandinavia, sales would improve greatly here in the States.

    Tires for Mazda MX-5 Club

    Not my daily drive but still put lots of miles on the car year round (+2k month). Tires I have used on the car in past have been the stock Bridgestone S001 and BFG Comp-2 A/S. Selected this Nokian tire after price/performance comparisons and feel pretty good about my choice. Approaching 1k on new tires and can say without hesitation they handle just as well as the BFG's and are much quieter than the Bridgestone's. The Nokian's seem to deliver an assuring grip yet have a light feel/lowresistance when rolling along at highway speeds. No noticeable sidewall flex at sport-touring pace. Have not encountered wet-pavement conditions so cannot comment on that aspect of performance. Two thumbs up at this point! "Good" rating can move to "Excellent" depending on rain capabilities.

      Excellent All Season Performance Tire

      I have now owned these tires beyond 5000 miles on a 1998 BMW 740i driven fairly hard. In that time I have been surprised at how well the tires handle in dry conditions. They are as good as any summer tire I have driven and much much better than the Bridgestone Turanza tires I took off the car after a massive sidewall blow out. The Nokian ZLine A/S are quieter, softer riding but have a distinctive performance edge over the Bridgestone tires. I have not had to drive much in wet conditions so I cannot comment on them there. I was out in the ice/snow where they were noticably worse than the Nokian winter tires I use in winter conditions. I feel like they are a tire which leans towards dry conditions and away from winter conditions despite being sold as an all season tire. I would note that my car is a big and heavy car (4500 pounds) but the ride did not seem either harsh or mushy as some tires do when faced with a heavy car like this under performance driving. They break loose predictably and not suddenly as some tires do. I do not think you will be disappointed if you are looking for a dry road tire where I gladly give them a 5 star. Under snow/ice I would only rate them 3 stars. Nothing handles winter conditions like a real winter tire though so you have to limit your expectations when buying a tire for all seasons.

        I recently installed a set of these on my son's Mustang GT as a replacement to a Nitto tire. He had just purchased this car over summer vacation as his new(er) university car, and the tires it came with were not up to my specs. I'm a tire geek in all honesty and, since they were going on my son's car, I wanted to go with a top-tier/level 1 brand. So I did. I've had previous experience with Nokian winter tires (best in the world!), and thought that I'd try the zLine in a 255/35-20 size on his vehicle. Want to know the bonus part? I found them for $77 EACH. No kidding! A full set for $308?! Can't pass that up. Had them mounted and balanced at my Ford dealer (they took very little weight, too), and so far they've been superb. He just had them rotated, too, at their first 5000 miles of use - all is well, no abnormal wear noted, so everyone's happy. They ride very smooth and quiet (the only quiet aspect about this car - muffler delete package on it...); predictable handling; handle the power and torque this car puts out (a few mods...); look fantastic on the American Muscle rims. Car resides in Arizona for the school year and the Pacific Northwest in summer, so there are some temperature extremes these tires will be going through. I'm not worried. Great product.

          Best All Season Tire for the Money

          5 Star Tires - purchased my zLine tires 2 months ago and have put 5000 miles on the tires on dry, wet and snowy roads. When I drove away from the tire center I immediately noticed how comfortable and quiet the ride was. I had previously had premium Michelin HP Lattitude tires on the car which were ZP (run flats). I thought the Michelin's were great until I tried these. I did a lot of research before purchasing these tires. I was on a budget but wanted a premium tire. Due to the cost of new Michelins at $359 each, I decided to see what else was available. I was a little apprehensive buying these tires because I hadn't heard of them but they were recommended on a BMW forum I read so I decided to investigate. After reading about the company and it's snow tire heritage, I purchased the tires at Walmart at a very good price, a little less than half the price of Michelin's. Now for the best part, I could not be happier with these tires. They are smooth and quiet on the highway and they feel very stable at speeds of 90-100mph in my X5. But it gets better, due to the stiff sidewall, these tires perform very sporty and are very confident in turns, making my X5 feel more like a sports car than an SUV. I absolutely recommend these tires and in fact I am getting ready to buy a set of Nokian cLine's for my sons Toyota Camry. - Eddy

            I've been running a set of A/S 215/45/18's on my 2006 Mazda 6 Sportwagon for about 18 months. When I had them mounted, the tech looked me up to tell me how little balancing was required. Always a good sign. From day one to now with 29 thousand miles and in the process of their second NE Ohio winter, they have been excellent! And still have plenty of tread too! Smooth, great traction, quiet and (in my opinion) attractive. These are premium tires at at a VERY fair price.

              I bought 4 Z line tires and after 35000 km the tires were cracked and out of use. My mechanic wanted to replace them with a deduction but the tire supplier Nokian refused, claiming that it was normal

                I bought this nokian z line a/s for my 2010 scion xb. I replaced my noisy and rough riding firestone. At first I am skeptical about the brand but after I did my research and some people recommending the brand, I decided to try this. I also checked consumer reports and nokian is one of the top 5 picks of best tire brand. On my initial experience with the tires: it absorbs bumps, quieter than my last tires (and its not worn out) and comfortable. The only drawback on this tires with 50 series height: no rim guard. They should have put it because 50 series height is still a bit low. The handling is a bit dull. Overall, it is a nice tire for the price.

                  All any1 making a purchase has to do is Read the Numbers & Letter on each tire To make sure U A getting a Fresh & Brand New Tire. Every tire made has them. If unsure on Reading Ask your Tire shop to Break down When Exactly the tire made That may have a Lot to do with why breaking apart on the Tread. Just Like most things if a tire is 4 years old chances R 8000km is about 5 years old 4 Plus the additional km

                    I’ve had these for 6 months in the northeast and they are awesome. Other than deep snow and ice they are unstoppable.

                      We've had these tires on for approx. 8k miles and I'm beside myself! We've had the tires balanced 3 times. The last time even spun them 180 degrees on the wheels thinking it may help seat the tires more concentrically. Well... it's unfortunate that we couldn't remedy the vibration issues! The vibration comes and goes in the oddest way. Some times it shows up around 60, sometimes around 70. I can't put my finger on it! I've been around many tires in my day. I've not experienced this type of behavior previously and it's very annoying! I get a vibration in the steering wheel (front tire) then I'll have a vibration in the seat (rear tire). If Nokian would like an opportunity to teach me something about your technology, I'm all ears! Maybe let's try out the WR G4's! These 255/35r19's are on a 2014 Audi A4 Quattro on stock wheels. I took off Continental DWS's because of noise, not vibrations, at 24k miles. These are exhibiting noise as well as vibrations at 8k miles. Not impressed! Ball is in your court, to impress!

                        Surprising tire. One of the best all seasons I have driven. They drive like a summer tire. Stick and ride are very smooth. Side walls absorb bump without being harsh. I would compare them to the other premium all seasons. Because few people know that Nokian makes other tires besides snow and all weather. These z-lines are a great value

                          I upgraded my 2012 Mercedes S-Class from 18 to 20" rims. The car had factory Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ Plus P255/45ZR18 Tires with 5-6/32 tread remaining. These tires are $850 a set but the Nokian's are a much better value. Although 20", these ride BETTER and are QUIETER.
