Unfortunately Tire Rack does not sell the Nokians. Tire Factory does though and they are bricks and mortar.

One of the reasons I love the Nokians, is the lack of toxic oils used in their tires. The EU is banning toxic oils soon and Nokian phased them out in 2004, far before they were required to. Michelin, BS, and most other manufacturers have been dragging their feet on this waiting for the deadline for profit reasons. The Nokians are a favourite over at Prius Chat too. And they are cheaper than Michelins.

It must sound like it but I really don't work for them. I just think their tires are really great.

A good tip is to get the extra load tires if they have them in your size because they often have a higher max psi.
