Nokian WR SUV 4 winter tyre launched
Nokian Tyres has launched the new Nokian WR SUV 4 winter tyre for sport utility vehicles and crossover models. Designed for Central European roads, the tyre has excellent handling on slushy roads and solid performance in suddenly changing weather conditions, claims the company.
The new Nokian WR SUV 4 is specially developed for Central European SUV drivers ensuring the best performance on snow, slush and in heavy rain. Nokian Tyres’ Climate Grip Concept masters the sudden changes in driving conditions and guides you and your family safely through winter.
“The overall volume of rainfall is expected to grow and heavy rainstorms are expected to be more frequent due to climate change. It will cause treacherous road conditions and increase the risk of flooding. Adding to the chances of aquaplaning, the snow on the roads can be quite watery and slushy as roads are heavily salted. When handling a heavy SUV especially at high speeds, it is necessary that the tyres are suited for all these conditions. The versatile winter characteristics, excellent handling and an SUV specific construction make the Nokian WR SUV 4 optimal for Central European winter,” said Marko Rantonen, Development Manager for Nokian Tyres.
The new tyre is offered in speed categories H (210 km/h), V (240 km/h) and W (270 km/h), and its comprehensive selection cover 57 products from 16 to 21 inches. The new Nokian WR SUV 4 will be available to consumers in autumn 2018.
Compared to the previous model, Nokian WR SUV 3, the new Nokian WR SUV 4 has been improved especially in wet handling and braking. With the substantial increase in snow braking ability, Nokian WR SUV 4 offers the best snow grip in the market, said the company.
