Tires are Nordman 2, a Chinese made Nokian-ish tire (i.e. some Chinese company bought the mold from Nokian and continued making them).

Loud but have amazing grip in the snow.

On a side note, even with the taller sidewall I have no issues with the handling of the car, and might run this rim with a tire like the Nokian WRG2 year round, and sell the original wheels, maybe.
what is the treadwear on those tires.
