Nokian Tyres Intuitu smart tyres are helping make the digital transformation of heavy tyres a working reality for fleets through smartphones. The smart tyres are already available in Finland, with Nokian Tyres confirming that customers can now place orders in France.
‘Plug and Play’ Simplicity of Nokian Tyres Intuitu Smart Tyre Solution Proves a Helping Hand for Fleets
The new technology by Nokian Tyres, launched in 2020, allows fleets to buy the smart tyres. From there, fleets let the sensors attached to the tyres’ inner surface send pressure and temperature readings straight to the smartphone app.
“Fleet managers, in particular, are excited about having vital tyre information and alarms available with a minimal need for configuration”, explains Pierre Choubert, Business Manager at Nokian Tyres. He adds that “premium tractor tyres are an investment you want to look after”.
Explaining how the smart tyres help save time and money, Choubert, adds, “The correct tyre pressure enables better use of tyres with more grip, fuel economy and service life. Temperature and pressure warnings enable safer use of tyres by helping to prevent any serious damage in advance. And all of these combined with the extended warranty enable a longer tyre life.”
Thomas Fiquet, who works for Bray Thelle Prestations in France, undertakes earthmoving, transports and municipal and agricultural contracting. Using Nokian Tyres Intuitu equipped Nokian Tyres Ground King tyres on his tractor, Fiquet is pleased with the combination.
He said, “I can follow the tyre pressure and temperature and the vehicle speed in real-time on my smartphone. There is no need to connect the pressure gauge or whatever, everything is really connected.”
Nokian Intuitu Available for Four Nokian Tyres Tractor Tyre Lines
The smart tyres are suitable for the Nokian Ground King, Nokian TRI 2, Nokian Hakkapeliitta TRI and Nokian Tractor King lines.
“The Ground King has the innovative Hybrilug pattern that combines first-rate field performance with excellent road properties”, notes Pierre Choubert.
“The block-patterned Hakkapeliitta TRI combines incredible winter grip with car-like road handling, and Tractor King is made for the heaviest forestry and earthmoving work. The block-patterned TRI 2 tyre has already established itself as the go-to tyre for municipal contracting with long road transits”, he explains in more detail.
Due to the easier maintenance of the tyre and the additional tyre checks via smartphone, Nokian Tyres offers a one-year warranty extension on these smart tractor tyres.
“We feel confident to offer this extra benefit for smart tyre users”, Pierre Choubert concludes, “The digital dimension of tyre management opens up new possibilities, and we have only just started!”
