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