Nokian eNtyre C/S Tire Review & Rating

Set for an early 2018 release, the Nokian eNtyre C/S all-season tire is designed specifically for drivers of crossovers and SUV’s in the North American marketplace. With a focus on performance, comfort and durability, the eNtyre C/S is engineered with safety and year-round traction and handling in mind.

Nokian uses their unique Clinch Rubber compound that delivers enhanced rolling resistance and added flexibility for improved durability. The tires’ asymmetric tread pattern features a center rib and one of a kind 3D-lockpattern that works to strengthen the blocks for increased performance.

Stiffer shoulder blocks and reinforced aramid sidewalls not only up the cornering and handling stability, but add to this models’ durability and puncture resistance. It’s worth noting that Nokian has created deeper than standard tread grooves for a longer life.

Four wide circumferential grooves, which are polished for increased water evacuation on wet soaked pavement, and numerous lateral sipes around the tread aid in wet traction and handling. In addition, Nokian has added soft soil and snow grip enhancers that are designed to provide added grip when driving in mud or deeper snow.

Nokian has also included what they term as Driving Safety Indicators on this tire, which lets drivers see the depth of the main grooves in percentages. It’s a quick and easy way to know how much tread is left and when it is time to look for a replacement.

When it comes to reducing unwanted road noise, the Nokian C/S sports Silent Groove and Silent Sidewall technology. Without going into technical details, this new technology is specifically designed to reduce tread growl on rougher pavement, as well as vibrations.

Nokian offers a range of 16-22 inch sizes with either a T or H-speed rating. All sizes include a 65K mile tread warranty.

We will provide a full review on this latest Nokian all-season tire as soon as it becomes available.

  1. Very nice performance overall but these eNtyre CS tires were unpredictable when manouvering on snow covered ice -whereas the Blizzaks clearly performed quite well in such conditions. I will try letting more air out and see if they improve on snow covered ice.

    1. These are all season tires you’re comparing snow tires to in regards to performance on snow covered ice. Not exactly a fair comparison. How about making a comment on how they perform as designed?

  2. I have the eNtyre C/S’ on my Subaru Crosstrek. Have approximately 4K miles on them, and I am very happy with their performance in the fast corners, noise is not an issue, and wet roads are solid all around. These are really high quality tires, that stand side-by-side with premium European brands, such as: Michelin, Pirelli, etc., but Nokian is a much better price point.

    I hope Tire Reviews and More will test them soon, to show how they compare against the competition.

  3. We bought these tires to replace the worn out continental tires on our Buick Encore. These tires are very quiet and are very good on dry and wet roads.
