New sizes have joined the Nokian E-Truck medium/regional haul and Nokian R-Truck on-/off-road ranges. Nokian Tyres has introduced a steer axle Nokian E-Truck Steer fitment in size 385/55R22.5 as well as a Nokian R-Truck Trailer tyre in size 285/70R19.5.
Nokian E-Truck is a 3PMSF-marked tyre range initially launched in 22.5-inch sizes in 2017. Nokian Tyres recently added 17.5-inch fitments and has now announced that the range will further grow to include a 19.5-inch version.
Nokian Tyres has extended its Nokian E-Truck range with an option for mid-sized trucks and buses that primarily operate in regional and city traffic. New 17.5-inch tyres will be available from the second half of 2020 as steer or drive axle fitments.
Nokian Heavy Tyres has introduced a successor to the Nokian MPT Agile, and it says this new-generation tyre offers “several improvements over the original.” The Nokian MPT Agile 2 takes up its predecessor’s remit of offering manoeuvrability, grip and reliability both on and off the road and at any speed; the tyre is aimed at defence and peacekeeping applications, rescue vehicles and off-road trucks.
Two new heavy vehicle tyre lines have arrived in the Nokian portfolio. The Finnish manufacturer has unveiled the Nokian R-Truck, an on- and off-road tyre designed for trucks engaged in applications such as earthmoving and forestry, as well as the Nokian Hakkapeliitta Truck T winter tyre for truck trailers.
Nokian Heavy Tyres is introducing a successor to its Nokian NTR 32 tyre for medium and long-haul truck and bus operators. The new Nokian NTR 52 meets the EURO 6 load carrying capacity requirements and has a higher load index than its predecessor. The latest-generation tyre bears an M+S label for all-year use, and Nokian says the NTR 52’s new construction and tread compound offer “good durability and excellent grip under main road conditions.”
