Nokian Tyres launches on and off-road product line for trucks
The Nokian R-Truck series consists of three models: R-Truck Steer, R-Truck Drive, and R-Truck Trailer
Nokian Tyres has introduced the R-Truck product range for on and off-road use, such as earthmoving and forestry applications.
For off-road applications, the R-Truck range has been designed with open pattern and wide grooves that ensure self-cleaning on soft surfaces such as mud, sand and snow. This improves both grip and reliability. They feature a special rubber compound that is resistant to cuts and cracks. This reduces the risk of tyre damage on rough surfaces. The tyres also have stone ejectors in their main grooves, increasing the tire operating life.
For on-road, the R-Truck range has been designed with even wear pattern and low heat build-up. The non-directional pattern provides low rolling resistance.
The Nokian R-Truck series consists of three models:
1. Nokian R-Truck Steer: Designed for year-round use on steer axles on on and off-road trucks. The stone ejectors in its main grooves prolong the operating life especially on rough surfaces.
2. Nokian R-Truck Drive: An all-season drive axle tyre designed for on and off-road trucks operating in demanding conditions and various surfaces. Its tread has large blocks that offer durability and reduce cuts and tears in challenging environments.
3. Nokian R-Truck Trailer: Designed for year-round trailer use and optimized for demanding on and off-road and timber trailer use. Its main grooves have stone ejectors that reduce the risk of tire damage.
