When in the market for SUV all-weather tires for a hybrid or electric SUV there are certain things to consider, like the type of winters in the area where you reside. There are also certain differences unique to hybrid and electric SUVs. The main difference is the weight of the vehicle, which is typically heavier due to the battery packs and the size of the SUV. Heavier weight requires extra braking distance, so grip and traction are important features needed in a tire. There are many all-weather tires suitable for hybrid or electrical SUVs, like the Nokian WR G4 SUV, which is a high-performing tire tough enough for all seasons.
The advantage of an all-weather tire compared to an all-season tire is the Three-peak Mountain Snowflake symbol, which indicates they are designated for use in severe winter conditions. This is especially important with hybrid or electric SUVs, which need good traction for proper braking and grip on snow and ice.
The Nokian WR G4 SUV combines uncompromising performance and excellent grip through all seasons, while allowing reliable handling no matter the forecast. It steers well on dry asphalt and snowy or wet roads, with predictable grip all year long. It is designed with many new innovations like Aramid Sidewall technology, which improves durability while protecting against cuts, Centipede Siping to allow maximum contact with the surface to increase grip on snow and slush, and a dual-performing SUV compound that increases stiffness with its new SUV performance resin to provide a perfectly balanced combination of summer and winter properties.
When choosing an all-weather tire for an electric or hybrid SUV, it is important to keep in mind the differences between a traditional SUV and an electric or hybrid SUV. It is also important to consider what kind of driving you will be doing and what kind of weather conditions you will encounter where you live. Keep in mind that nothing outperforms dedicated SUV winter tires in severe winter conditions. This being said, the all-weather tire allows for one set of tires to be used all year round eliminating the need for storage of winter tires in the garage.
