BMW X1 to roll on Nokian WR D4 winter tyre
Nokian WR D4 winter tyre, with the size 225/55 R17 97H, has been approved by the BMW Group as original equipment for BMW X1. The tyre was developed by the company for the Central European weather conditions. To get an OE approval from the BMW Group, the Nokian WR D4 has undergone the car manufacturer’s thorough testing programme.
The tyre maker has been cooperating with car manufacturers, especially in the Nordic countries, for a long time. The cooperation with the BMW Group expands these operations and strengthens Nokian Tyres’ position in Central Europe which is the world’s largest winter tyre market.
“The cooperation with the BMW Group shows that we, as the world’s northernmost tyre manufacturer, are respected and the quality of our products is valued. This is a very important step for us in developing our OE activities and business further,” said Markus Honkala, Group Sales Manager, Nokian Tyres.
Nokian Tyres manufactures the winter tyres delivered to BMW at the factory in Finland, in the place where the world’s first winter tyre was born over 80 years ago.
