Nokian van, campervan tyres – sidewalls now strengthened with aramid
Van and campervan tyres can lead hard lives. The vehicles they are fitted to are often driven fully loaded on poor roads and gravel surfaces. The tyres must bear the entire weight of the vehicle and provide safe and stable handling under all conditions. To give these products more strength, Nokian Tyres is now introducing its Aramid Sidewall technology into all Nokian van and campervan product lines. From 1 January 2018, it is present in the Nokian WR C3, cLine Van, cLine Cargo and Weatherproof C ranges. Nokian SUV tyres have been manufactured with aramid sidewalls for several years now, and in addition to the abovementioned products the material can be found in 15 Nokian tyre lines.
“We want to offer van and campervan drivers the same durability that the users of our SUV and LT tyres are already receiving,” says Petri Niemi, head of product and pricing management at Nokian tyres. “In addition to protecting against surprising additional costs caused by tyre damage, aramid fibre also ensures that the cargo can reach its destination without trouble.”
