Nice price!

Very good prices for excellent tyres.

before someone mentions you might have to contact your insurance company blah,blah. most companies now see this as a sensible step in improving road safety in the winter.

Very cheap price. These tyres are usually in the top 3 of any winter tyre comparisons done by motoring magazines.

Good price - about £13 cheaper than Mytyres. I've just had these tyres fitted to our family car for the winter - different sizes, but they feel less 'squirmy' than the Goodyear winter tyres on my other car. Will have to wait until snow & ice to see how good they really are, but a 2nd in the latest Autoexpress Winter Tyre Test suggests they are a safe bet.

I meant A3 of course... thanks for pointing out:)

Not sure about this brand. Sounds phoney.

In before the 'My tyres are bigger' moron.

14" though? What are they for, a Corgi?

Was gonna attempt to make a joke that this is in some way made by Nokia and it was called the Nokia N Smart Tyre . Then read the serious comments and thought I'd save myself the embarrassment and just say that that's what I was gonna do but as the joke became to difficult to pull off I thought better of it.

Nokian are from the town of Nokia, Finland. Same origins as the phone company.

Generally sets of winter tyres are one inch smaller but higher profile (therefore same overall diameter) and fitted to steel rims, which are tougher than alloys.

From the website.

Performance is no longer optimal when the tyre is down to 4mm.

You never did have to inform the insurer. The reason behind this is simple, when a tyre wears out you replace it and you do not have to tell your insurer if you fit a different brand of tyre to your car as long as it meets the manufacturers specification and is type approved , as winter tyres meet all the requirements to be used as a summer tyre then provided you are fitting the same size, load rating and speed rating as your normal tyre there is no need to tell anyone as the tyre meets the specifications.

Obviously if you change tyre size, load rating or speed rating you *may* have a problem but then you'd have that same problem on summer tyres.

Nokian are awesome tyres too, I've got a set of WR G2 (which are an older tyre replaced by the WR A3) that I purchased about 28k ago and 2 are on 5mm and 2 are on 6mm.

They no longer count as a winter tyre when 4mm or below, this has implications if you are travelling in parts of Germany (and possibly Sweden)

Having winter tyres here in Germany is law, they are great in the snow and i think the UK will benefit so much if they adopted this law too.

Nokian are quality tyres, check the motor forums. ive got them on my AWD all year round.

But this means you need to buy rims too...

Don't appear to do them in 19's !

Does most of the UK really need winter tyres for more than a week, if that? Great price btw, heat added.

This law would be great to ensure winter tyres are fitted during the warmest winter on record. Germany has lower temperatures and more snow. I agree that winter tyres are sensible but just not an option to get them fitted for most low earning families. Maybe we should do more training on stopping distances and skid management on a skid pan may be more useful when taking your driving test.

Brilliant winter boots, heat added, i go up to the arctic circle and most finns and norwegians have nokians, perform briliantly on their untreated icy roads. Not really suitable for temperatures above 10 degrees C though, best at 7 degrees c or lower . .

Nokia? is that you?

very hot

No, down here in the sunny (not today) south I reckon I've driven on snow on maybe 10 days in the last decade.

hot anyway, good price.

Great price for excellent tyres. Nice find OP.

For people saying we only need winter tyres for a week - you are wrongly assuming winter tyres are for snow. They are not. Tyres expand and contract at different temperatures. A summer tyre will perform much worse when the weather is below 10c than above. A winter tyre, below 10c, which is a temperature we get for a lot more than a week, will offer far superior grip and handling. On top of this, for the week we do get snow, the winter tyre will go a long way to stopping you getting stuck.

I think the confusion often lies with marketing these as 'snow' tyres, when they are not that at all. The are 'winter' tyres, for when it's cold, like in winter

great price for a good tyre. hot

Nokian means Nokia's in Finnish. They are about the best winter tyres around, just remember when you brake on a slippery road you will stop a lot quicker than the traffic behind you.

In Finland it's law for all to use winter tyres, which avoids that problem, here it's not so beware.
