Nokian Tyres said its recently released Hakkapeliitta LT2 winter tire is designed to easily move SUVs, pick-up trucks and vans through harsh ice and snow conditions. New features include a rugged grip, wear resistance and unique driving stability. According to the tiremaker, the LT2 was designed with heavy axle loads and demanding use in mind. The tailored steel belt package is especially reinforced in the shoulder area. The LT2 will cover 12 models, with sizes ranging from 16- to 18-inch rim diameters.
