The Nokian E-Truck range of truck tires has been created for long and medium haul road transports, but now they expanded it to cover lighter vehicles as well.
Now the same economical kilometers are available for regional and city traffic with the new Nokian E-Truck 17.5 tire range.
The Nokian E-Truck range of tires is designed to bring as many economical, trouble-free kilometers as possible in year-round transports on main roads. But city traffic has its own challenges, so the new Nokian E-Truck 17.5 series of steering and drive axle tires was not created just by scaling down the existing products.
“We took the features that have proven useful in the Nokian E-Truck tires, such as the robust tread pattern designs”, says Teppo Siltanen, Product Manager at Nokian Tyres. “But we developed them further and combined the latest in tread pattern design with our special, abrasion-resistant rubber compound.”
Available in the second half of 2020, the resulting tires, Nokian E-Truck Steer 17.5 and Nokian E-Truck Drive 17.5, answer to challenges set by urban traffic.
“Maneuvering tight corners and small courtyards is no problem with these tires, thanks to their stable, predictable handling”, says Teppo Siltanen. “The 3PMSF marking also makes sure no winter will slow you down.”
For steer axle
Nokian E-Truck Steer 17.5 is a front tire for medium size delivery trucks and city buses, offering handling properties with its four-rib tread pattern. For a long service life it has an even wear-pattern, and the zigzag-shaped wide grooves reduce stone trapping.
For drive axle
Nokian E-Truck Drive 17.5 tire is designed for all-year use in demanding urban traffic. For grip and handling in all circumstances, it features a dense block pattern made of rubber compound and an open block design with semi-open shoulder design. Optimized tread block staggering provides driving stability.
Made for real need
The new Nokian E-Truck 17.5 tire collection is optimized for special needs – quiet, agile, low-emission transports and to withstand the tire-wearing abrasion of the city traffic.
“The city traffic is shifting towards lighter vehicles, and it’s a good thing”, Teppo Siltanen says. “That enables more flexible traffic and cleaner air – so Nokian Tyres wants to offer tires that speed up the change!”
