Due to the COVID-19 outbreak and the uncertainty it has created within the automotive and tyre market, the Board of Directors of Nokian Tyres plc has decided to withdraw the company’s financial guidance for 2020 that it published on 4 February 2020. Due to the prevailing uncertainties, the Board is not in a position to give a new guidance.
Victory has gone to Nokian Tyres in both the studded and non-studded categories of the winter tyre test conducted by Finnish publication Tekniikan Maailma (World of Technology). The test of 12 studded size 205/55 R16 tyres and eight non-studded 205/55 R16 tyres appeared in issue (17/2015) and saw the Nokian tyres pitted against a range of premium, mid-range and budget tyres.
No less than 15 tyres took part in the 2015 summer tyre test carried out by Finnish trade publication Tekniikan Maailma (World of Technology). Size 205/55 R 16 tyres from premium, mid-range and budget manufacturers were fitted to a VW Golf and evaluated by specialists from Test World in Ivalo, Finland and ranked according to performance in a series of wet and dry tests. Continental’s ContiPremiumContact 5 topped the table with a score of 9.5 out of 10 and a rating of five out five stars, however an entry from another premium manufacturer didn’t fare so well.
