I read that Nokian winter tires are actually all season tire that also have the snow flake(winter tire designation). Is that right? Anyone here used them Year round?

How do you like them
In winter: (vs other dedicated winter tire)
snow handling, ice handling, Wet traction, Noise, wear(fast/slow)

The other 3 seasons:
Noise, comfort ride? Wear (fast/slow) vs other all season?

WHich Nokian line would you reccommend for 2010 3.6R Outback (Limited trim).

Also, anyone put them on a Minivan (Toyota SIenna)?

Can you get them thru' Discount tire?

Nokian's primary lines are: The Hakkapeliitta R, the Hakkapeliitta 7, the WR-G2, and the Entyre.

The Hakkapeliittas are their winter tires. They are a low rolling resistance true winter tire... arguably the best snow tires in the world (fun fact, Nokian developed the Blizzak for Bridgestone because Bridgestone didn't have the technological know-how).

The WR-G2 is an extremely aggressive all season. It is a winter rated, mountain-snowflake designated tire that Nokian designed to be run year round. These will wear pretty quick, factory warranty is about 50K miles.

The Entyre is their mild all season.
