Nokian Tractor King, the New Tractor Tyre for Forestry, Construction and Earthmoving Applications

Nokian Tyres
Nokian has now brought to market the Nokian Tractor King.
Nokian Tractor King is a new tractor tyre for heavy machinery and the most difficult terrain in forestry, earthmoving and road construction. The design from all-new tread pattern to fortified carcass has delivered a high quality tractor tyre.

The demands set for an ultimate tractor tyre have grown difficult to meet since machine weights, horsepower and road speeds have all increased. For safe and sustainable forestry, earthmoving and road construction Nokian Tyres now provides the new Nokian Tractor King.

Nokian Tractor King has the carcass of a heavy-duty earthmoving tyre, complete with steel belts, extra cord layers and Aramid-reinforced sidewalls. This combined with a strong rubber compound makes it resistant against cuts and punctures of forestry, earthmoving and road construction work.

Many lugged tyres suffer from vibration problems that only get worse with speed and tyre wear. Considering this fact, the Nokian Tractor King offers a smooth ride on high speeds as well. Its durability, wear-resistance and environmentally friendly production process make it a sustainable choice for modern forestry, giving the driver peace of mind in all conditions.

On top of this, it has 50% more tractive edges in comparison to the conventional lug pattern, as well as an all-new tread pattern that gives grip on all terrains that stretch from clay to loose sand.

The product supports a maximum speed 65 km/h and its wear-resistant tread design enables cost-efficient mileage. Furthermore, it has a high load capacity of 320 kPa with its revolutionary core and sidewall design for top-class puncture-resistance.
