New High Performance Viking Pattern

(Clacton, U.K./Tyres & Accessories) The Viking tyre range has been further enhanced with the introduction of the new Protech II pattern, replacing the current Protech 500.

Exclusively available from Viking International, the Protech II’s asymmetric pattern is said to be the perfect combination for wet and dry conditions.  

The outer pattern consists of stiff shoulder blocks and two circumferential ribs to ensure lateral stability, as well as optimised grip for excellent braking for all round dry performance. The inner pattern with its combination of numerous block edges and sipes provides strong grip and handling in wet weather conditions.

A dedicated Viking tyre Web site has been set up featuring the tyre range, specifications, POS support, a dealer locator and trade area for further information.

John Caldwell, executive director for Viking International says “Viking tyres are a well recognised and established brand within the U.K. and together with a great dealer support package, are a popular choice for our customers. The introduction of the modern Protech II pattern and additional profit opportunity makes Viking the perfect choice for dealers.”

Available for next day delivery and able to be ordered online, the new Viking Protech II pattern is a superb tyre for driving in all weather conditions.
