The presented tyre is marked with 3PMSF symbol (Three Peak Mountain Snow Flake). It means that the tyre meets the EU requirements for winter tyres. The symbol is awarded after thorough tests of a tyre model in terms of snow grip.
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 am rating Nokian WR D3 tyres in size 185/60/14 82T Russian production. In its opinion, I will only refer to other winter tires was help, and were Goodyear UltraGrip 6, Fulda Kristall Montero, Kleber and BFGoodrich Winter Krisalp HP GForce. I selected this tyre due to the evaluation of users, the price and the fact that in the tested was assessed as a versatile tyre, and for me the most anxious. Upon receipt of the email tyres has certainly disappointed their appearance. Definitely do not look to the premium class. 2 of 4 tires occurred bosses, just above the lettering and the surface of the contact rim. It is a big drawback. There were no problems with balance. The tyre of the quietest not part. It is certainly quieter than Goodyear, but stronger than Kleber and BFGoodrich I need 2 cars. Braking, steering, handling on both wet and dry conditions very well in order, and best of all the tires we had. In this regard, I cannot fault this tyre. Perhaps in the continental test it out better, but the objectivity of the tests being what it is. In addition, the road is not a test track and the differences of 0.5 or 1 m for the average user are virtually imperceptible. Very good also removes inequality. I can confidently recommend Nokian WR D3 tyre, even those who drive very aggressively. The tyre is predictable, well, you can feel when his grip ends. For the price, I am very happy. For me, competing with Goodyear and Continental performance tire for less money, but slightly worse executed. If someone depends on making the best quality / durability / price, this would be a good choice.
I bought a set of Nokian WR D3 tyres and just after they were released, before there was criticism. I was very happy with them. My previous set of summer tyres wore out last year and been using them all year. They have very soft sidewalls, I do not know why some people say they are stiff. They are comfortable and relatively quiet. The wet grip is not particularly great, but I’ve had much worse on wet tyres like Michelin Energy on that car. They are much better than Goodyear Eagle F1 in the wet below 7C! The dry grip is reasonable. They work very well in summer without wearing badly. they are perfect in winter. they surprisingly low rolling resistance, a little lower than my old Michelin Energy! The tread in Nokian WR D3 is also very good. I’ve use them all year round in the UK today, they are OK in the summer, when the tires were much better traction anyway, and very good in the winter when things tend to be more slippery.
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.
