The Nokian WR D3 is a winter tyre that performs exceptionally well in extreme weather conditions. It has been created by the Finnish company Nokian, which specialises in tyres designed for this time of year. The model features a directional tread pattern with grooves shaped so as to help quickly and effectively disperse water, mud and snow from under the wheels. This all means that driving on Nokian WR D3 tyres is exceptionally safe, whatever the weather.
The model is made from an innovative compound noted for its excellent flexibility at low temperatures. The tyre therefore has an increased contact area with the ground, resulting in better grip. The compound used to make the tyre is also very durable and lighter than traditional compounds. The designers have therefore managed to decrease rolling resistance in the Nokian WR D3, which in turn reduces fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
Reduced fuel consumption and the extended service life of the tyre mean that the Nokian WR D3 is very economical to run. The model also features an optimum distribution of forces within the tyre. This means that the tread wears slowly and drivers can enjoy the full range of performance features of the Nokian WR D3 for its entire lifetime, without having to worry about a gradual loss of grip or a deterioration in performance. The Nokian WR D3 is the ideal solution for drivers who like to feel safe and secure behind the wheel, even in severe winter conditions, and who are looking for an uncompromising performance and short braking distances.
Nokian is an independent Finnish tyre manufacture. The company is particularly renowned for its winter tyres, which perform very well in extreme conditions. It has been designed for the demanding Scandinavian weather, which is why it also handles Polish conditions extremely well. The Nokian production lines produce tyres for passenger cars, agricultural machinery, bicycles, vans, lorries and tyres intended for specialist industrial and forestry machinery. The company's production plants are located in Finland and Russia.

A serious tyre, I am living in Ireland and have a 100 mile round trip commute on country roads and motorway. The back roads go untreated all winter. I first tried Nokian tyres on my old Merc 190E, the WRA3 were a super tyre even in heavy snow in an old rear wheel drive car.
I am running these WRD3 on my wifes Citroen C3 hdi, I had a 2005 Subaru Outback that had them as well. The Citroen really holds the road fantasically well in all conditions. We run winter tyres all year round on both our cars as the heavy rain we get here can only be displaced safely at motorway speeds by a good quality winter tyre.
In frost and snow these tyres are superb, so good in fact that now my wife is off on maternity leave if it is very icy or snowy I will use the Citroen for my commute as I know it will literally go anywhere. I have Hankook Winter ICept Evo on my 2002 Audi A4 Avant 130 TDI, I couldn't fincially stretch to the Nokians when I was buying tyres for my car, in hindsight I should have spent the extra €150 as I have little faith in the Hankook's, they are good in heavy rain and when the tempetature in below 7deg but nothing like the quality of the Nokian WRD3's.
So far we have put 20,0000 km's up on our current tyres, the wear is excellent but I maybe could have rotated them sooner, the front show significantly more wear than the rear so I will run them until October 2015 then replace them, rather than cheap out and have the better ones on the front and an average pair on the rear.
Incidently in summer I raise the pressure up to 42psi to reduce wear, now its winter I'm running them at 32psi.
I will change my Hankooks in October 2015 for a set of Nokians that I will have more faith in. Tyres can be costly but they are the only thing seperating us from the road, people in Ireland think I am mad running winter tyres and have no real idea what they are but given our low winter temps and heavy rainfalls coupled with untreated, poorly maintained back roads they make perfect sense.
I bought Nokian WR D3 tyres after many hours of analysis on the Internet and I'm very satisfied with them. I often travel to different palces so I have to deal with driving in various conditions. The tyres perform great on every surface and in all weather conditions. I think they are fantastic winter tyres, definitely recommendable. They are simply sensational on snow. My previous tyres lost grip in the rain on wet surfaces, but with Nokians I do not have such problems. I think that the noise level is also low, especially for winter tyres . I highly recommend them to all drivers who want to feel safe while driving. The price is also reasonable. If you put the safety of your family on the first place then you can stop wondering and buy them right now – I guarantee it’s a good choice. If someone asks me in the future what winter tyres I recommended this for sure will be Nokian WR D3.
When buying tyres Nokian WR D3 I was inquisitively looking for information about them and I was reading the opinions of other drivers to find out whether the tyres are worth buying . When I finally decided to buy these tyres, I waited for a long time before I put my own opinion as I wanted it to be sincere and true. Now I can honestly say I do not regret my choice and I am very satisfied with the tyres. They are great on any surfaces, and I tested them on dry and wet surfaces as well as on snow and ice. Moreover, their big advantages are great resistance to damage and attrition. Some drivers may wonder if they should buy Nokians which are not so well-known and I understand that because I was also wondering and making my little research, however, they are not worse than other tyres of the upmarket brands!! In short, they are worth recommending.
These tyres are really worth the price! The most important thing to me is that thanks to them I haven't had any problems with the slides. On the previous tyres I slipped on the snow, not to mention on the ice, but this winter I could be completely calm. The grip is just superb! Very small tread wear, almost imperceptible. When it comes to driving comfort I am also delighted. On dry or wet surfaces the drive is pleasant and comfortable. Buying Nokian WR D3 tyres was certainly one of my best decisions. In conclusion, a lot of meaningful advantages. As for the drawbacks, there are certainly some, however, I personally did not see anything that would be a problem for me. I recommend these tyres with a clear conscience because when it comes to quality and safety they are sensational.
As soon as I bought Nokian WR D3 tyres I immediately began to test them. I use these tyres in my BMW E46. The car itself provides me with great comfort but thanks to these tyres driving is simply pleasure! The tyres perform excellent on snow. I’ve tested them in different situations and there were never any problems with the loss of grip. There were no surprises during driving. I mean there were no tyre slips, no problems on turns or with braking. I was positively surprised with them! The noise level is also low. To sum up, those are very good and quiet tyres I would recommend to everyone. They are definitely the best winter tyres I’ve ever had!! I really recommend buying Nokian WR D3 if you want to purchase a product of good quality and with reasonable price.
