Performance of summer tyres
Nokian's SUV summer tyre range includes performance tyres for both highway driving and for driving on unpaved roads, both in the dry and in the wet. SUV tyres are made to function optimally during three seasons; spring, summer and autumn, and their development has been inspired by the demanding and constantly changing conditions here in the north. The result is an unbeatable tyre that lets the driver enjoy the ride.
Aquaplaning is a challenge for summer tyres
In dry summer conditions it's not so important to pay much attention to tyres, but the connoiseur of Nordic conditions knows that even in summer conditions can suddenly become challenging. Just as snow and ice challenge a tyre in winter, so heavy rain and surface water provide their own challenges at other times of the year. From the point of view of road safety, it is important that the car is fitted with tyres of appropriate tread depth and which have characteristics suitable for the prevailing conditions. Nokian Tyre's innovation, the wear and aquaplaning warning mark, helps in monitoring and checking the tread depth of the tyre.
A car will aquaplane when the tread pattern of its tyres is unable to remove water from under the tyre at a sufficient rate, and the vehicle will then be riding on a layer of water. Aquaplaning can best be prevented by fitting new summer tyres, and by adjusting one's speed to the prevailing road conditions.
SUV or Sport Utility Vehicle
Nokian's SUV-tyres are for the most part stiffer than car tyres in their carcass construction, as they are designed for use on heavier vehicles. An SUV tyre's tread pattern is designed to give stability and to reduce roll, as the centre of gravity of an SUV is higher than on other cars. As these vehicles are often driven on poor roads and sometimes even off road, good ”rough road” characteristics are built into Nokian's SUV tyres by means of shaped side walls and a very strong carcass construction.
