Nokian Rotiiva AT Tire Review & Rating

The Nokian Rotiiva AT tire is billed as offering optimal performance and no compromises when it comes to safety and driving comfort. Geared more towards driving in light duty off road conditions, the Nokian AT is designed for drivers of pickups, SUVs, and other 4×4’s.

Featuring a cut-resistant tread all-season compound, the tread features an aggressive pattern that looks pretty good on any truck/SUV. Nokian has added unique center rib stabilizers that aid in delivering quicker and more responsive steering, while also helping maintain increased cornering stability and handling on the road. We’ve heard many drivers mention in reviews that this model has better than average road manners.


Nokian Rotiiva AT Tire Review

The tire’s wide polished grooves and the addition of 3-D sipes give the Rotiiva AT excellent wet pavement traction and better resistance to hydroplaning. The aggressive design and 3-D sipes further assist with traction and grip on snow and ice.

Nokian is well-known for their winter tires as being among the best in the business, so we expected good ratings on winter performance and we were not disappointed in our findings. It’s worth noting that the Nokian AT sports the mountain/snowflake emblem, indicating it meets severe snow service standards. There are not that many all-terrain tires that carry this designation.

Naturally, the aggressive tread provides for the type of traction you expect when driving off-road. Stone ejector ribs at the bottom of the tread grooves remove the unwanted rocks and debris for added puncture resistance.

Nokian offers sizes ranging from 15-20 inches, and all models come with a 50K mile tread wear warranty.

Pros

  • Off-road performance in light terrain is very good
  • Comfortable and well-mannered on the street
  • Winter performance among best in class
  • Treadlife is good on this tire

Cons

  • Not the best in rugged off road terrain or serious rock climbing

Overall Thoughts

We didn’t really know what to expect when we first looked at the Nokian Rotiiva AT. What we found though is an all-terrain tire that performs as well as most of the better models in this class. In fact, its winter traction and grip is among the best in class. We’ve heard the same things from driver after driver as well.

Off the beaten path you’ll find more than adequate traction in all types of lighter terrain. It makes a solid choice for anyone who drives on gravel or dirt roads, or those who drive to the lake or to their favorite hunting grounds.

On the highway this model is comfortable for the most part, and road noise is not as pronounced as you might find on several other AT tires.

Overall, we like this tire quite a bit for its performance on the road, which is where the vast majority of everyday driving takes place. If a light-duty AT tire is what you need, the Rotiiva AT is very good option.

  1. These tires are fine on dry roads and seemed passable as a winter/snow tire on a 2018 Ram 1500 truck. With 25,000 miles however, winter traction is non existent and I have zero confidence to the point that I will be removing them from my frock on February 8th two months from spring. It’s been snowing in CT and the last few storms I have been feeling like the roads were very slippery. Today when I swapped ends going 20mph I decided not to sweat $1000. Tomorrow the Rotiivas come off my truck. Very disappointed

  2. 30 Dec 2020 – Nokian Rotiiva AT review 265/70R17 / Vehicle 2016 Toyota 4Runner
    Driving Habits/conditions: Avg. 100mi a Day, (half highway/cruise set at 79 mph) hilly terrain, backroads, Avg snowfall per year – 180+ inches
    For an AT Tire, it is very quiet on the road. As stated above, it has great road manners. Easy turn-in; no stress on the steering wheel. MPG decreased 1 mpg by running this tire.
    I would rate it’s off-road capability as a 7/10. I feel it lacks the aggressiveness needed for deep mud or very deep snow. Will definitely get by in most conditions.
    As a winter tire; this tire does not inspire the same level of confidence as the WR/G3 SUV(discontinued), which is a absolute shame. The WR/G3 SUV tire was a GREAT all-weather tire. Does it work in snow and ice; yes, Recommend Nokian Hakka for dedicated snow and ice. The front end will come out from underneath you with the Rotiiva. It lacks the winter grip that other Nokian tires have. In addition; as a high speed (65mph) tire in light snow and slush this tire under performs. Rated 6/10 as winter tire. Still……it’s winter performance is still a WHOLE lot better than a BFG AT or Goodyear wrangler AT. Which at best are absolutely treacherous/dangerous on compacted snow and ice.

  3. One of the best AT Tires you can get, starting around $100 a tire. 8.5/10 in dry/wet conditions, 9.0 Treadwear and 9.0 in the winter.
