They would perform just as well as my 4Runner in the snow (save for ground clearance) and really inspire confidence.

I have the original Forteras on and will be strapping on some WRG3 SUVs this fall in the 20" size. I was giving the Terra Grapplers a hard look for good snow traction prior to the release of these G3s, and still am weighing both. But for my use, mainly on road and occasionally down a log road to get to a beach, and needing winter traction to travel in upstate NY to visit family, I believe the Nokians will be the winner. Excited to see this thread. I've been a Nokian advocate ever since I first owned a set about 5 years ago. Truly amazing.
Hey, I live in Upstate NY and my only sibling lives in Dayton (Englewood), OH.
Are you my sister?

14K miles on the tread driving in all conditions WI has to offer. At this point I would buy them again. Less than 1/32" wear after 12K miles.

Greetings,

Pull the trigger. That is what I did for my Nokian Rotiva AT.

And then, welcome to the Nokian Family of Tire Users.

Best for now.

Re: New tire

I have not shopped them yet locally, but saw them on the web for $298US for just the tire. Your price seems reasonable. I would pay that. Nokian makes a "top shelf" tire.
