Nordman Solstice 4 Launches as Value Option for All Weather Conditions

The all-weather tire is a new offering from the standalone Nordman brand

DAYTON, Tenn. – Nokian Tyres is pleased to debut the Nordman Solstice 4, an all-weather tire for value-driven consumers made by the company that introduced the all-weather passenger tire to the North American market more than two decades ago.

The Nordman Solstice 4 is designed to offer durability and stability, solid winter grip and excellent handling on wet, dry and snowy roads. It is certified with the three-peak mountain snowflake emblem that indicates it is designed for use in wintry conditions. Its unique all-weather compound ensures excellent wear resistance and fuel savings across more than 50 sizes between 15 and 20 inches.

Unlike all-season tires, whose compounds harden when temperatures reach 45 degrees Fahrenheit (7 degrees Celsius), all-weather tires like the Nordman Solstice 4 are true year-round driving options in area that experience moderate or unpredictable winter weather.

Durability and Stability

The tire’s SolsticeTech 4 asymmetrical tread offers balance between winter traction and summertime handling. Its stiff outer shoulder, stable center siping and curved inner shoulder combine to let the Nordman Solstice 4 roll safely and comfortably. Groove lifts between tread blocks support the tire’s stability. Blade grooves on the inner shoulder channel rain, snow and slush away from the road surface.

Maximum Winter Grip

The Nordman Solstice 4 achieves excellent winter grip thanks to semi-open SolsticeTech 4 siping in the shoulders, as well as lateral supporting zigzags and closed 3D locking sipes in the center. Snow claws provide longitudinal grip that makes cornering and lane changes easy in snow.

Excellent Handling in All Conditions

The SolsticeTech all-weather compound delivers sporty performance powered by natural rubber and canola oil that fulfill the Nordman brand promise of providing “Tires for Your Direction.” The Nordman Solstice 4 is designed to remain soft in frigid temperatures but durable enough to withstand summer heat, a balance achieved through rigorous testing in cold and hot locales. And its low-rolling resistance compound makes driving efficient in all seasons, maximizing the distance drivers can travel on a single fill-up or charge.

The Nordman Solstice 4 is the latest offering in the new standalone Nordman brand, a line of tires that provide confidence and control for value-driven consumers. Nokian Tyres launched the Nordman product family in 2004, but in 2023 the Scandinavian tiremaker relaunched Nordman™ as an independent tire brand for value-driven consumers with a new logo and visual design. The first product offering in the new Nordman product family was the Nordman North 9 and North 9 SUV winter tire, which launched last September.
