Nokian Rotiiva AT summer tyre for SUVs
Nokian has introduced its new Rotiiva AT (All Terrain) summer tyre for SUVs into its core European markets. The tyre, says Nokian is excellent on asphalt or gravel, but also performs well in lighter off-road conditions. The sturdy structure and tailored, cut-resistant tread compound give the tyre excellent durability when used with heavier cars. The comprehensive selection of sizes is aimed at light trucks, larger SUVs, and pick-ups. The selection of sizes covers a total of 26 models from 15" up to 20".
The aggressive tread pattern and its wide, polished grooves maximise grip and handling in rapidly changing summer conditions. In addition, stone ejectors on the bottoms of the grooves eject small stones and minimise the penetration of sharp rocks into the tyre. These stone ejectors further increase the operating life of the tyre by preventing tyre body damage, especially when driving on uneven surfaces. Thanks to a unique tread pattern, the tyre also cleans easily.
The tread pattern features centre rib stabilisers that stiffen the tyre, giving drivers the feeling is of excellent stability and quick, responsive steering.
Cooling ribs in the shoulder area improve the durability of the Rotiiva AT – a tyre that is designed to handle poor roads and rapidly changing conditions. Lower heat generation means slower wear, more comfortable driving, and more mileage.
For drivers who like to tailor the look of their tyres to their personal style, the tyre is available with different sidewalls: a more rugged appearance for off-road use, and a more stylish and toned-down look for the road. Nokian Tyres’ patented Driving Safety Indicator on the tread surface improves safety and comfort by letting owners easily see the wear and overall condition of the tyres: the numbers on the tread surface allow the motorist to check the remaining tread percentage.
