Nokian Tyres snow tires provide Extreme safety for northern conditions

Nokian Tyres created the winter tire in 1934. For eight decades since, we’ve built some of the safest snow tires in the world. We instill our rugged Scandinavian heritage into every tire we craft, then test our snow products in harsh Arctic winter conditions. You can expect impressive grip on ice and snow, shorter stopping distances, excellent handling and cornering in winter conditions, increased fuel efficiency, and more from Nokian Tyres snow tires.

Our winter tire line includes studded tires designed to provide traction on icy roads and non-studded products that claw through snow. Both options deliver winter safety that drivers of passenger cars, SUVs and light trucks can trust. We also craft all-weather tires strong enough to drive year-round yet responsive enough to thrive in snow and ice.

Snow Tires Offer Peace of Mind in Winter conditions

Nokian Tyres invented snow tires more than 80 years ago. Today, we continue to produce safe, sustainable tires designed to withstand the harshest winter environments and extreme conditions. With Nokian Tyres snow tires, you can drive with confidence knowing that you're in control. 

Nokian Tyres snow tires feature a number of innovative technologies that make them ideal for winter driving, including:

  • Arctic Grip Crystals: Microscopic crystals work like built-in studs on our latest non-studded tires: the Nokian Tyres Hakkapeliitta R5 range. As the tire wears down, the crystals emerge and activate a grip reserve to help keep you safe on your journeys.
  • Aramid Sidewall Technology: This technology makes our tires more resistant to punctures and cuts, even in deep snow. The sidewall compound of the Nokian Tyres Hakkapeliitta R5 SUV is exceptionally durable and puncture-resistant and contains extremely strong Aramid fibers. The same material is utilized by the aerospace and defense industries.
  • Double Stud Technology: Our latest studded tires, the Nokian Tyres Hakkapeliitta 10 range, feature innovative stud positioning. Star-shaped studs have been rotated 180 degrees on both shoulders of the tire to improve handling and lateral grip. Nokian Tyres' Double Stud Technology offers maximum safety on ice and snow, as the center studs improve acceleration and braking grip, while the studs on the shoulder areas maximize grip during turning and lane changes.

Whether you're driving through a snowstorm or simply commuting to work on a winter morning, Nokian Tyres snow tires provide peace of mind for your journeys. If you live in an area where winter visits, but does not typically stay, consider winter-rated Nokian Tyres all-weather tires.

When should you put snow tires on your vehicle?

Snow tires are specifically designed to provide better grip and control in snowy, icy conditions, and cold temperatures. Installing winter tires at the right time guarantees better grip and contributes to a smoother, more secure driving experience. Install winter tires before freezing temperatures hit. As a good rule of thumb, consider changing to winter tires when the temperature consistently drops to 45 degrees Fahrenheit (~7 degrees Celsius) or lower. It's important to note that even if daytime temperatures rise, nights and early mornings can remain significantly colder. Also, be attentive to the weather when traveling long distances, as different zones can experience varying conditions and lower temperatures. Read more here.
