Answers from the Automotive Experts

Julie Scroggins, Vice President, CFO at Waukegan Tire and Supply Company Inc. Hi Daniel, If you are looking for one great all around tire I would recommend the Nokian WRG3 which will perform like a snow tire but is made to be run all year as an all-weather tire. The tire comes from Finland and was developed from their snow tire line into an all-weather tire that stays pliable below the 38 degree threshold that affects all-season tires making them hard and slippery even when the roads are dry. The Nokian is a premium product with a smooth ride and exceptional grip. You can check them out and search for a dealer in your area at . Julie
