Default Nokian Rotiiva AT

Has anyone heard anything about this new tire? I got a Kal Tire flyer which has this listed. I am very intrigued as I have always been a fan of Nokian tires. This is exactly what I am looking for as it is an all terrain tire with the severe winter service designation. I did a Google search but nothing comes up.



EDIT: PICS ADDED ON PAGE 3

Those look pretty good as an ice traction tire.

When I owned my WRX, Nokian was the only tire brand I'd run for winter driving. Absolutely can't be beat for traction and toughness.

We just got our first shipment at work, I have yet to try them out. I've ran many of their other tires, and we've always been happy. BUT this tire is VERY light and has VERY soft sidewalls.

Then get the Vatiivas.
I'd love to find a set of their MT's around here.

I would totally get Vatiivas except they are not rated for snow. We have snow on the ground 7-8 months of the year up here...

Any chance you can tell me what the 265/75R16 weighs?

So the snow has started to fly. I'll find out tomorrow how the Rugged Fails handle but something tells me I'll be pulling the trigger on these sooner rather than later. Kal Tire quoted me $262 CAD per tire. I found the specs on these and the 265/75R16 E10 weighs just over 44 lbs. Other than that I can not find any reviews of this tire.

Pro4-X, have you had a chance to try these out yet?
