Used tyres cannot be taken to a landfill; they must be disposed of at an appropriate recycling facility. In Europe it is free to recycle old tyres because the price of new tyres includes a recycling fee. Read more about tire life cycle and recycling

Modern non-studded winter tyres have good grip, even in difficult conditions, and can even correct minor driving errors. However, studded tyres have considerably better grip. A young motorist who is just getting used to driving in the winter should choose studded tyres.

In terms of safety, the most important characteristics are wet grip and the tyre's ability to resist aquaplaning. In terms of driving comfort, a low noise level is important. Low rolling resistance will decrease the car's fuel consumption and reduce environmentally harmful emissions.

We recommend changing all of the tyres at the same time. In some cases two tyres can be changed: either both front tyres or both rear tyres. In these cases, the new tyres should be the same brand and model as the old tyres to ensure safety and maneuverability.

Always check your vehicle’s registration for the recommended tyre size. When choosing winter tyres, consider how and where you drive, how safe you feel in winter conditions and your driving experience level.

Rolling resistance refers to the energy consumed in the deformation that takes place when the tyre grips the road. Rolling resistance affects fuel consumption, thereby also affecting carbon dioxide emissions. Rolling resistance accounts for approximately 20 percent of the vehicle's fuel consumpt…

Wet grip is an essential safety factor, particularly in summer tyres. It communicates the tyre's maneuverability on wet roads. EU tyre label states the tyre's braking distance on wet asphalt from an initial speed of 80 km/h.

Wet grip refers to the tyre's ability to retain its grip on wet surfaces. In practice, the concept of wet grip is closely related to factors such as a short braking distance on wet surfaces, better handling characteristics, or a more stable driving response in wet conditions.

“Better” tyres – those with less wear – should always be installed at the rear, and the main reason is safety. When using better tyres on rear, it is easier to avoid oversteering ie. loosing rear axle grip of the road, in emergency situations. In an intense situation while driving, oversteering is m…

Tyre noise is always linked to the driving surface as the road surface has a major impact on the amount of noise generated by the vehicle. The decibel value is not an accurate measure of the noise level; all tyres are noisy when they drive on rough asphalt in the spring, for example.

The EU tyre label will affect consumers' tyre choices in the future. Particularly good values will influence consumers' choices of summer tyres. When it comes to winter tyres, the classification may also be misleading. For example, the new tyre labels do not take into account the typical win…

Soot, used to strengthen the rubber mass, has such a small particle size that it dyes the rubber black. In the future we might be able to replace soot as a strengthening comound and then we can basically make tyres of any colour

If you are not compelled to drive in every winter day non-studded tyres can be the right choice. Most difficult conditions and surfaces for non-studded tyres are slippery ice and hard packed snow. On those surfaces studded tyres are much better.

The country of manufacture is clearly stated on the side of the tyre. The same tyre can be manufactured in several different countries. In terms of quality and safety every Nokian Tyres product is made with to our exacting standards and industry leading practices.

Using winter tyres in the summer is not recommended, even if they are non-studded, as they have a softer rubber compound and different tread structure than summer tyres. Tyres designed strictly for winter roads do not function safely in the summer. Also due to the compuonding, the wear of winter tyr…
