Re: Nokian Rotiva AT 265/60/18 10,000 mile update

I traded in the Forteras at 150 miles. Price for 265/50/20 Nokian WRG3 SUV's was $150 each plus tax, disposal fees, etc. plus free rotations and leak repair... a good deal IMO. My tire place is a local Nokian distributor.

I expect snow and ice performance to be equal to our Subaru with WRG2's... excellent!

Hows your gas mileage?
Just put a set of Rotiva's on and went on a 1000 mile round trip. unfortunatly no snow like I was expecting. The handled great, Just a slight increase in noise.
Replaced a set of General Grabber that had 60k on them.

The only problem was my gas mileage dropped. I was only getting 16-16.5 at highway speeds (65-70mph). This is a droop of 2-3mpg.

So far I like these tires, but the mpg drop has me thinking about replacing them. I was planning on running these all year round in Michigan.

Greetings and welcome to JeepGarage.org,

What year is your JGC and engine? From your numbers, it looks like you might have a hemi.

My gas mileage had not dropped since I put them on my 2011 3.6L. With the summer blend of gas, I averaged still the same as I reported at the 10k updated, 21-23 mpg. The winter blend of gas I drop any where from 1-2 mpg. After I put in Cold Air Intake, I found it went up 1 mpg.

Best for now.

They have not had any negative effect on my mpg. Still get 21-22 with 100% in town

Re: Nokian Rotiva AT 265/60/18 10,000 mile update

Been running the Rotivva AT's all winter long (8-10k) and just took them off to finish up my GY SA's. I have to say they have been great for wet, snowy and cold. I'm in MA and we have had a pretty good year for snow. Drove up to ski mountains with 18 inches of stuff on the road and didn't really have any issues. One thing I did notice is that more weight in the WK2 the better (but that goes for all tires). When it started to heat up outside they did wear down little faster then my GY's but for the grip, handling, snow, wet, braking, and mpg they are great. Also they are very quiet. I can tell a huge difference between the GY and Rotivva's.

Re: Nokian Rotiva AT 265/60/18 10,000 mile update

Greetings,

I am glad you like them.

I just past 36k on them and they are still going strong. Interesting about the warmer temps, I have not had that problem. I have made trips down south and the traction was the same as new.

The noise level is just a tiny bit louder and that depends on the type of road surface I am driving on. It should be interesting when I hit 40k later this summer.

By last tread depth was 8/32.

Best for now.

Re: Nokian Rotiva AT 265/60/18 10,000 mile update

I figured I would post here too since this thread was also helpful:

I'm considering 17s that are either Blizzaks where I have to get a set of summer tires next year or get the Nokian W3 SUVs and run them year round. Unfortunately, I can't really decide. Any further comments from people who have been running these for more miles?

Re: Nokian Rotiva AT 265/60/18 10,000 mile update

I have WRG2 on my WJ Overland. They are almost 30K miles now and are still great. I can probably put 10K more for sure. My wife drives it during the winter. I live in Wisconsin and good winter tire traction is a must. It is amazing! With 4x4 there is no problem to take off. The difference is in turns and during breaking. My 2014 Overland is pretty bad in snow with original Goodyear's. And it has QD2.... Last two summers we drove the WJ a lot. Temp's were high around 90F, but did not have any problems with WRG2's. Amazing tire. When is time for new tire for my WK2 I am considering WRG3 for sure. Hope this helps

We have WR G3 SUV's on our Grand Cherokee and WR G2's on our Subaru. About 30,000 miles each.
May replace Subaru with Audi Q5 and I expect to replace the stock tires there too.

11/17/16 - Update

I put on the WR G3's yesterday at the Jeep dealer on the stock 17s, 245/65/17s were there only size that was close to stock. They look exactly like Blizzaks to me which is interesting. I'm driving 1000 miles today on a weekend trip to the mountains so I will let you know how they fare. Purchased them for $127.99 from Simpletire.com and they were delivered in 48 hours, great service.

I was also able to pickup the stock 18s and tires off of craigslist last night so I have something to run next summer. Go figure the day after I order the Nokian's for all season use I find these with Michelin Latitude Tours on Craiglists for a great deal along with mint condition OEM 18s.

Here are pics:
