Nokian Tyres launches on & off-road  product line for trucks

Expanding its truck product range, Nokian Tyres has added the Nokian R-Truck product range for earthmoving and forestry applications.

“On and off-road use puts special, even conflicting demands on a truck tire”, says Nokian Heavy Tyres Product Manager Teppo Siltanen. “It’s like two different worlds – the smooth highway and the rocky earthmoving site or the muddy forest road. The Nokian R-Truck product line strikes an excellent compromise between the two worlds.”

For the off-road purpose, all Nokian R-Truck tyres have open pattern and wide grooves that ensure good self-cleaning on soft surfaces such as mud, sand and snow. This improves both grip and reliability. The new tyres also have a special rubber compound that is highly resistant to cuts and cracks and this reduces the risk of tyre damage on rough surfaces. The tyres also have stone ejectors in their main grooves, increasing the tyre operating life.

On-road, the Nokian R-Truck tyre boast an excellent mileage thanks to their even wear pattern and low heat build-up. The tires keep their good properties throughout their lifetime. The non-directional pattern is also quiet and has a low rolling resistance.

“The Nokian R-Truck series really represents the cutting edge in tyre design”, says Teppo Siltanen. “The non-directional tread, open tread pattern with big tread blocks and even the sidewall design is very modern.”

According to the company, the new Nokian R-Truck series is suitable for year-round use. All the tyres have the 3PMSF approval, and they are equally at home on snowy roads and hot tarmac.

Business Line Director Ari Maunula adds, “Nokian R-Truck tires have been tested and manufactured in Europe, and the new range corresponds to the European standards and regulations. We wanted to design the best possible tire for European drivers, no matter how north or south they drive.”
