NOKIAN TYRES LAUNCHES A NEW STUDDED CAR WINTER TYRE
Nokian Tyres launches a new studded car winter tyre, Nokian Hakkapeliitta 4 for the Nordic and Russian markets. Its consumer sales will start during the autumn 2003. In the tyre development,
the main focus has been on tyre's grip properties and environmental issues.
The good grip of Nokian Hakkapeliitta 4 is based on several creative innovations, such as a new stud model and construction solution improving stability. The stud technology is called Nokian Eco Stud System 4 with a patent pending.
The grip properties have been improved by using special rape-seed oil in the tread compound mix. In addition to the rape-seed oil, only low aromatic oils are being used in the tread compound mix.
