I am ready to replace the 3 season tires (OEM Pirelli Scorpians) on our 01 XC and am intrigued by these. I hope someone has some experiences and better yet, opinions <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif">

Re: (nyerinmontreal)

I've got the NRWs on my A4 yearround. Snow handling is as if on rails. Ice traction is good but not as good as my wife's michelin Artic Alpins'.<p>If you check out NRW's website you'll get a little more information. I think they've improved the ice handling a bit.<p>If ice handling is your biggest concern, Blizzaks, Dunlops or Artic Alpins may be a better choice. If snow is the issue the NRW are excellent.<p>A friend of mine has the Nokian WR and the deep snow handling is unbelievable. Great if you need true snow tire not mudandsnow/multiseason

Re: (Stu B)

Stu,<p>I have seen from your other posts on different boards that you have them already. I also have them and couldn't be happier. After dealing with Volvo and the garbage scorpians I just removed them to get rid of my vibration issue. They are much more robust than the NWR IMO and ride, brake, corner far superior to the scorpians. <p>Jason

Re: Nokian's

I don't have specific experience with the WRs but I have ALWAYS had Hakkapolitas on my 740 wagon for winter driving and won't have anything else. They are awesome in the winter. <p>I recently put NRZi's on my TT Roadster....another excellent tire. You can't go wrong with any of the Nokians...IMHO
