The Nokian WR Snowproof P tyre showcases a mixed performance across various conditions, according to tests conducted by Autobild and Autozeitung. On dry surfaces, these tyres excel with dynamic handling characteristics, including instantaneous cornering, high lateral acceleration, and the shortest braking distances observed among competitors. This exceptional dry performance is complemented by a very low rolling resistance, which not only enhances fuel efficiency but also positions the Nokian WR Snowproof P ahead of its rivals in this regard. Additional positive characteristics include a quiet rolling noise and an impressive mileage potential, indicating that these tyres may offer long-term value and comfort.

However, the tyre's performance in winter conditions and wet roads presents certain limitations. On snowy surfaces, the tyre struggles with moderate lateral support and understeering behavior, which may compromise handling and safety. These challenges are compounded by the tyre's limited aquaplaning qualities and underwhelming wet handling capabilities, including extended braking distances on wet roads, delayed steering response, weak traction, and a predisposition to early aquaplaning. These attributes highlight a significant area of concern for drivers who frequently encounter rainy weather or those navigating slippery winter roads.

In summary, while the Nokian WR Snowproof P tyres stand out for their dry road performance, fuel efficiency, and comfort features, their compromised handling and safety on wet and snowy surfaces present notable drawbacks. For individuals prioritizing dynamic dry handling and long-term value, these tyres offer considerable advantages. However, those requiring reliable performance in diverse weather conditions might find the tyre's wet and snow performance less adequate, suggesting a careful consideration of specific driving needs and conditions when selecting these tyres.


Nokian WR Snowproof P is made in 55 sizes, starting from 205/45 R17 up to 245/35 R21.
