With the Nokian E-Truck range suitable for reliable and economical medium and regional haul journeys and the Nokian R Truck range for demanding on and off-road use, Nokian Tyres has widened its portfolio to incorporate flexible sizes for drivers on and off the road.
European Routes Made Easier with Varied Tyre Sizes
With Central European towns and cities situated close by, drivers prefer medium and regional haul transport tyres that serve in all weather conditions. Teppo Siltanen, Product Manage at Nokian Tyres, argues that although the weather in Central Europe isn't as extreme as the Nordic terrain, it's still a prerequisite for drivers to have dependable winter tyres. He says, "Medium and regional haul in typical European conditions sets its demands for tyres. The Nokian E-Truck tyre family is meant to be an economical all-weather answer to those demands.”
With the 385/55R22.5 size joining the Nokian E-Truck Steer range of steel axle tyres, this is the suitable tyre to meet densely populated areas where drivers take on medium and regional haul jobs. Siltanen adds that the tyre is known for its stability, excellent mileage and comes with improved fuel economy and reduced heat build-up based on the tyre's low rolling resistance.
A Tyre Built for On and Off-Road Applications
With so many drivers dealing with both road surfaces and either earthmoving or forestry sites, the Nokian R-Truck range was designed to ensure strong stability on uneven, rocky surfaces.
“In off-road use, the safe grip is ensured with the good self-cleaning properties of the open tread pattern”, notes Siltanen. “Safety and economy are further improved with a cut and crack resistant rubber compound with low heat build-up.”
Siltanen adds that the tyre naturally balances between a road and a worksite, ensuring healthy longevity for the tyre under difficult conditions. With the 285/70R19.5, Siltanen explains, "The new Nokian R-Truck Trailer tyre in size 285/70R19.5 is made with heavy loads in mind and timber transport is a perfect application for the tyre as it combines heavy trailers with journeys on forest roads and forestry sites.”
