Remedy WRG5: Nokian Tyres’ Answer to Ever-Changing Weather Conditions

Four seasons, one tire

  • Remedy WRG5 offers versatile performance in unpredictable weather, emphasizing confidence, performance, and resilience.

  • Distinguished from all-season tires with a three-peak mountain snowflake symbol, indicating superior winter usability.

  • Suitable for EVs and hybrids, featuring low rolling resistance and a range of sizes, enhancing fuel efficiency and versatility.

Nokian Tyres introduces the all-new Remedy WRG5, a tire designed to tackle unpredictable weather conditions. This latest addition to their lineup promises natural confidence, performance, and resilience. As the company states, the Remedy WRG5 embodies these three core attributes, making it a versatile choice for drivers facing varied weather challenges. This all-weather tire aims to provide a reliable solution for the diverse driving conditions encountered throughout the year.

All-Season vs. All-Weather

All-season and all-weather tires serve distinct purposes, with a crucial distinction being their performance in varying temperatures and conditions. This difference is not widely recognized, as shown by a Nokian Tyres survey where only 3 in 10 Americans correctly identified the advantage of all-weather tires over all-season tires. Unlike standard all-season tires, such as the Nokian Tyres One, all-weather tires like the Nokian Tyres Remedy WRG5 are distinguished by the three-peak mountain snowflake symbol, indicating government certification for winter use. While all-season tires lose effectiveness below 45 degrees Fahrenheit (7 degrees Celsius), all-weather tires like the Remedy WRG5 are designed to remain responsive in colder, snowy conditions, offering a more versatile solution for areas with varied and harsh weather.

Natural Confidence, Natural Performance and Natural Resilience

The Nokian Tyres Remedy WRG5 offers three key promises: Natural Confidence, Natural Performance, and Natural Resilience. The tire’s design, featuring a more aggressive tread pattern, Dual Performance Siping, and Venturi Grooves, enhances its grip and water evacuation capabilities, ensuring confidence in diverse weather conditions like heat, rain, snow, and slush. Its Natural Performance is characterized by all-season handling and precision, ensuring a comfortable and controlled driving experience. Finally, its resilience is highlighted by a triple-performance compound and Aramid fibres, creating a durable, versatile tire suitable for a wide temperature range and electric vehicles, with a significant treadwear warranty.

Optimized for Electric and Hybrid Vehicles

The Nokian Tyres Remedy WRG5 stands out as an optimal choice for electric vehicles (EVs) and hybrids. It is the first tire from Nokian Tyres to feature the “Electric Fit” symbol, signifying its design to accommodate the unique weight, torque, and range requirements of EVs. Additionally, its low rolling resistance contributes to more efficient fuel consumption and extended range, enhancing overall vehicle performance. This tire also boasts class-leading durability and comes in a comprehensive size range from 15-inch to 20-inch, accommodating a wide variety of vehicles.

In conclusion, the Nokian Tyres Remedy WRG5 emerges as an essential response to increasingly unpredictable weather, with 9 of the top 10 years for extreme one-day weather events in the U.S. having occurred since 1996. This tire is particularly relevant for North American drivers who often experience all four seasons in a single day. The Remedy WRG5 offers a reliable solution for Mother Nature’s diverse challenges, providing a tire that ensures safety in snowy conditions while performing effectively year-round. It also represents a practical approach to tire design, adapting to various weather scenarios and reflecting Nokian Tyres’ focus on innovative, versatile weather solutions and answering what most people didn’t know was a question in tire safety and versatility.
