Here’s Something You Might Not Know About All Terrain Tires 

You probably know that all terrain tires are built to thrive on gravel, dirt and mud. Rubber beasts like the Nokian Tyres Outpost Family are forged to withstand the toughest off-road conditions. They even come with a Pothole Protection warranty. 

But many all terrain tires come with another benefit that may surprise you – snow capabilities! At Nokian Tyres, our all terrain products, including the Nokian Tyres Outpost nAT and APT, are certified with the three-peak mountain snowflake. 

Nokian Tyres Outpost APT
The Nokian Tyres Outpost APT is certified with the three-peak mountain snowflake.

That means they’re tested in wintry conditions and suitable for driving in snow. Because of that, we include them in our “all weather tire” classification – year-round tires built for all conditions.  

Three Peak Mountain Snowflake
The three-peak mountain snowflake is inscribed on the sidewalls of tires that are government certified for winter driving, like our Nokian Tyres Outpost all terrain tires.

Unlike all season tires, all weather tires are a true year-round driving solution. When temperatures fall below 45 degrees Fahrenheit (7 degrees Celsius), all season rubber hardens and becomes less responsive to the road. The term “all season” only applies if you live somewhere that doesn’t experience much wintry weather. If you endure severe winter weather, dedicated winter tires remain the safest option. 

We recently celebrated All Weather Tire Week to educate drivers about the only true four-season driving option. If you visit winter or winter visits you, all weather tires are a great option.  

What makes the Nokian Tyres Outpost Family effective on wintry roads? Its tread is deeper than previous generations of our all terrain tires. And its durable rubber compound is soft enough to remain responsive when temperatures drop. When we say “all terrain,” we mean it. From hurricane-soaked mud to lava dirt to snowy conditions, we are with you.
