Default Getting the Nokian WR-G2 on my car

I have an appointment to get the WR-G2's on my OBS tomorrow. I have read nothing but good things about these tires and I am looking forward to seeing how they handle. I got a pretty good deal - $140/tire out the door.

I just had a set delivered (215/45/17's) but won't be putting them on my car until "winter" rolls around-probably mid to late October

I ran Nokian NRW's (discontinued) previously and they lasted five seasons! they still had decent tread, I got rid of them figuring the compound had to be degrading after that long

I am finally destroying my Nokian WRs after hard gravel and daily use for about 3 years (bought them used at that time).

+1 would buy again.

the Nokian may have a little higher entry price, however when weighed out over their life- that changes

Exactly what I needed to hear, BigSky & Jard ... I've been teeter-tottering between the WR-G2's and (insert passably decent dd/rx tire for half the price per tire) for ... 5 months, at least.

Guess I'll just save up a bit more
