Nokian WR G2 has become much popular and beloved among car owners.  So, the long-waited upgrade to it which is called Nokian WR D3 will be met with excitement. It has technological improvements and new particular features which are highly valued by automobile owners:

  • Lower rolling resistance due to silica-canola oil as a compound.
  • A nanotech connected between the cap plies and the tread area that improves flexibility, grip and overall contact patch.
  • “Cool Touch” sips which prevents the edge of the tread block from breaking, maintaining rigid tread blocks and cutting down on heat buildup from friction.
  • “Slush Blower” staggered sipping patterns at the front edge of tread blocks developed to get rid of slush even more quickly.
