Meets the Victorian definition of 'snow tyre'
All Nokian snow & winter tyres comply with Victorian Alpine Resorts (Management) Regulations 2020 definition of ‘snow tyre’. That is ‘a tyre whose tread pattern, tread compound and structure are specifically designed to achieve better performance, on a road affected by snow or ice, than that of a normal tyre with regard to its ability to initiate, maintain or stop vehicle motion’.
This means a snow tyre must be a dedicated winter tyre as per the tyre manufacturer’s specifications. By definition normal tyres, highway-terrain tyres, summer tyres, all-terrain tyres, off-road tyres, mud-terrain tyres and M+S tyres do not comply with the regulations.
