    In my search for snow tires last year, I came across the Nokian WR G2's. Although they're not the same as their hardcore Hakkepelita tires, I liked the fact they were an extreme all-season that could handle snow. Reason I chose these also is because while NJ gets its fair share of snow, it's not...

    Well, I know its almost the end of february, but I finally got my winter driver fully ready for the winter. Just in time as luck would have it, we just got 18" of snow which is now turning to ice, and then more snow tonight!! I got the Dieselgeek Panzer skid plate, mostly because everyone else...

    I bought Hakka 5s for my GTI a month ago and we finally got snow to try them out. Went out for a drive this evening. Disabled the ESP of course. Plowed through 3 foot snowbank to get out of the driveway. Amazing stability, car stayed straight without effort, took corners without slipping. I...

    I've spent a great deal of time searching for feedback on a few particular tires, and while one can find a great deal about the Michelin Pilot Exalto, there isn't a whole lot available on the Nokian WR or WR G2, or the BF Goodrich Traction T/A. Maybe that should tell me something right there...

    Well, the Nokian WR's have about run their life out and won't pass inspection this coming month. I've been very happy iwth their treadlife, relatively speaking. They've been great in the rain, snow, slush, and dry, for my grandma-like driving style. They weren't cheap - right up in there with...

    Anyone running these on a Passat? I have them on our Golf and love them. The car has the Michelin MXV4+ 205 55-16's for the last 50k miles and they are going to need replacement soon. (2000 V6 GLX 4motion).

    I am in need of new tires for my 2000 b5 awd. I was recommended to purchase the Nokian WR all weather tire. I wouldnt mind buying a winter tire since I am planning on buying rims in the spring however the sales person told me the Nokian all weather tire is pretty much the best bet in that it is...

    My parents came to visit the other weekend. When we stepped outside to go to the store (getting into my parent's Blazer) my dad commented about his new tires. I stepped back and saw he had Nokian Vatiivas (SUV all-season tires)! This is the cheapest man alive so my comment was, "H*** S***...

    I was all set to go get some Nokian WRs this morning but then I saw the Nov '06 CR test results for performance winter tires yesterday. They only rated the WRs at #5 and gave top honors to the Goodyear Ultra Grip GW3. Both are H-rated and have essentially equal test ratings across the board but...

    Hi all. I live in Northern Ontario, where the calendar consists of winter and 1 month of bad skiing. The Car in question is a B6 2.0T MT wagon. Tire priorities are as follows: - COLD weather performance (-30 to -40C is not uncommon) - Ice and packed snow performance - deep(er) snow...

    Well, the Conti's that I used to replace the OEM Michelins on my 15" Wellingtons are now officially toast. The Michelins lasted 22,000 miles and the Conti's aren't going to see 14,000. Truly a disappointing showing. In fact, if the weather hadn't been as dry as it has been recently, I'd have...
