Nokian adds 17.5” tyre to ‘E-Truck’ range

Nokian has added a 17.5 inch tyre to its ‘E-Truck’ range. The E-Truck range was originally designed for medium-haul road transports, but the 17.5 inch tyre has been added for lighter vehicles.

The tyre maker says the 17.5 inch is a stable and reliable front tyre for medium size delivery trucks and city buses, offering good handling properties with its sturdy four-rib tread pattern. It boasts an even wear-pattern, and the special zigzag-shaped wide grooves reduce stone trapping.

The new tyre is designed for all-year use in demanding urban traffic. For grip and handling in in all circumstances, it features a dense block pattern made of special rubber compound and an open block design with semi-open shoulder design. Optimised tread block staggering provides driving stability for safe, comfortable ride, the company says.
