    You stole my joke.

    I've never heard of them. I think they're trying to break out into exporting local products and "worldize" them, so I guess they're just as good of a tire as anyone else has for a national brand. I'm just speculating here.

    hmmm....well, would save me $173. The best deal I found for Michelin LTX/MS in
    265/70-16 was $754 drive out. The Nokians are $581 drive out. They are pretty sweet looking and they have a cool web site, ha! Decisions..decisions..

    Sorry to kinda tease like that. What are you driving? Sounds like a good deal though.

    I found several people selling them.

    http://www.tirefactory.net/nokian.htm -- for example.

    Some models have got some pretty funky patterns.

    Talking Saab story

    The first time I saw a Nokia tire was in the trunk of a Saab. It was one of those 'mini spares.' It opened my eyes to the fact that Nokia is an industrial giant, not just a mobile phone mfg. You can buy a Nokia fridge, toaster, or tires. See Nokia's history at: Nokia.com AMR ranks Nokia number 1 in their "Top Supply Chain" roster ahead of the likes of IBM, Toyota, and Wal_Mart. From: MBT
    AMR's Top 25:
    • Nokia
    • Apple
    • Proctor & Gamble
    • IBM
    • Toyota Motor
    • Wal-Mart Stores
    • Anheuser-Busch
    • Tesco
    • Best Buy
    • Samsung Electronics
    Another one to watch on that list is Tesco. A huge food retailer in the UK. They are broke ground on a distribution center in SoCal and will be opening stores next year, across the southwest starting in SoCal and AZ. Bigger that a 7-11 smaller than an Albertsons with value priced fresh foods targeted at the working family.
