Nokian Tyres observed “All-Weather Tire Week” Oct. 2-6 to remind drivers of the importance of year-round tires certified with the three-peak mountain snowflake.
The Scandinavian tiremaker introduced the first all-weather passenger tire in North America 24 years ago. During All-Weather Tire Week, it commemorated the tire’s birthday and educated its audiences about the differences between all-weather and all-season tires. The product segment is designed for consumers who experience unpredictable winter weather but cannot justify purchasing dedicated winter tires. All-weather tires are an upgrade from all-season tires for consumers who visit winter or see winter visit them.
“Only three in 10 Americans can correctly name the benefits of all-weather tires over their all-season counterparts,” said Nokian Tyres North America Director of Marketing Hans Dyhrman. “All-Weather Tire Week is an opportunity to highlight the important benefits of true four-season tires.”
Dealers and drivers benefited from a variety of materials created by Nokian Tyres and its partners, including:
- Social media posts and infographics that highlighted all-weather tires’ importance via Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
- A bonus episode of the Nokian Tyres Journey Podcast that offered expert insight into the product segment.
- Testimonial videos from dealers and drivers who love all-weather tires.
- Press outreach about all-weather tires in markets that experience unpredictable winter weather.
All-weather and all-terrain
The company launched the all-weather Nokian Tyres Hakkapeliitta NRW in North America in 1999. It has led the industry with five generations of all-weather products, including its current offering, the Nokian Tyres WR G4 and WR G4 SUV.
The tiremaker’s all-terrain product line, the Outpost Family, also comes with the three-peak mountain snowflake.
Nokian Tyres’ all-weather tires come from its North American factory in Dayton, Tennessee, where the company is currently doubling production to as many as four million tires per year in 2024.
