The Nokian E-Truck range of truck tires, originally designed for medium-haul road transports, are now available for lighter vehicles with the new Nokian E-Truck 17.5 tire range.
Nokian says the E-Truck 17.5 series of steering and drive axle tires were 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.
“Maneuvering tight corners and small courtyards is no problem with these tires, thanks to their stable, predictable handling,” Siltanen adds. “The 3PMSF marking also makes sure no winter will slow you down.”
Nokian E-Truck Steer 17.5 is a stable and reliable front tire for medium-size delivery trucks and city buses, offering good handling properties with its sturdy four-rib tread pattern, the company says. It boasts an even wear-pattern, and the special zigzag-shaped wide grooves reduce stone trapping, Nokian adds.
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 special rubber compound and an open block design with semi-open shoulder design, Nokian says. Optimized tread block staggering provides driving stability for safe, comfortable ride, the company adds.
