    Nokian is a renowned tire manufacturer which specializes in manufacturing high-quality, durable, and reliable tires. Nokian is also the first manufacturer of winter tires and now also delivers different high-quality tires for passenger vehicles, such as SUVs, light trucks, and vans.

    The Nokian Outpost APT tire is an all-weather, all-terrain tire designed for use on CUVs, SUVs, and light trucks. The tire is designed to be used throughout the year and provides a reliable grip on wet, dry, and light or severe winter weather conditions. In this Nokian Outpost APT tire review, we will take a look at several features and benefits of the tire, along with its pros and cons and SimpleTire’s view on the tire, to help you make the right decision.

    Features and Benefits

    All-terrain tires feature an aggressive tread pattern with wide grooves and robust rubber compounds for increased strength, grip, and durability when driving on challenging terrains. The Outpost APT is also an all-terrain tire that can be used on- and off-road and also throughout the year.

    Aan aggressive tread pattern with Torrent Grooves and Double Diamond Lifts to improve grip and traction on different terrains, and the tire’s wide grooves help in reducing the risk of hydroplaning by forcing mud, dirt, rocks, slush, water, snow, etc., out of the tread. Here are some additional features and benefits you should consider.

    • Excellent durability on all terrains: Aramid strong sidewalls and a puncture-resistant compound help resist accidental damage for excellent durability.
    • Improve winter grip: The sharp edges and 3D wide siping helps deliver smooth performance and grip in snow and water.
    • Robust construction: The gravel guard and reinforced tread belts improve the durability of the tire.
    • Increased safety: The tire is equipped with Nokian’s patented Driving Safety Indicators (DSI) to help drivers check for tread wear.

    The Nokian Outpost APT tires are available in different sizes ranging from 17 to 20 inches and are designed for use on light trucks, Jeeps, and SUVs.

    Pros and Cons

    Now that we have a better understanding of the benefits and features of Nokian Outpost APT, let’s take a look at some of the pros and cons of the tire.

    • Excellent durability, reliable grip, and year-round use.
    • Three Peak Mountain Snowflake certified for use in moderate to severe winter weather conditions.
    • Backed by Nokian's Pothole Protection Warranty that replaces the tire at no cost if a road hazard damages the tire beyond repair (assuming certain terms and conditions are met)
    • Backed by a 65,000 mile limited manufacture tread life warranty for non-fleet and non-commercial vehicles.

    While these pros make a good case for the tire, you should also consider these cons.

    • Cannot deliver as good performance as winter tires in extreme winter conditions.
    • Some customers have pointed out minor issues when cornering
    • While an all-terrain tire, this tire should not be used for aggressive off-road driving

    SimpleTire’s view on Nokian Outpost APT tires

    If you are looking for an all-round tire that can deliver reliable performance and grip on different terrains and can be used throughout the year, then Nokian Outpost APT tires might be a good fit for you. With several excellent features, a Three Peak Mountain Snowflake certification, Nokian’s Pothole Protection Warranty, and the limited manufacturer tread life warranty, certainly make this tire an attractive choice.

    You can also take a look at the Falken Wildpeak A/T Trail if you are looking for better durability and traction at a slightly higher price. However, it is important to note that the Nokian Outpost APT has better longevity at a lower price.

    Vehicles the Nokian Outpost APT is a good replacement tire for

    As Nokian Outpost APT is available in different tire sizes, it can be used as a good replacement tire for a variety of vehicles, such as the 2011 Jeep Compass, 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee, 2015 Ford Explorer, 2021 Honda Ridgeline and more.

    Bought these to replace OEM tires. Largest tire to fit a Ridgeline. Slight rub on hard turns, worse in reverse but worth it for improving ground clearance. Spent a week beach overlanding in the Outer banks. Worked great oversand and quite on the highway. Didn't even notice a difference over the originals. Similar to Coopers I have on my Landcruiser but doesn't pick up stones, so these are my current favorite. Not a hard core AT tire by any means, but all most of us need. A good fit for the job site, beach and picking up the kiddos.
