New Premium All-Season tire for the North American market:

Nokian eNTYRE - Ultimate safety and driving comfort

Nokian Tyres plc introduced a new Premium All-Season tire, the eNTYRE, specifically designed for the North American market.

Nokian dealers have had much success selling the brand’s winter products and requested a product to offer their All-Season customers. eNTYRE was developed to meet this need.

The development concept was to provide drivers with ultimate safety, driving comfort and performance, in an environmentally friendly “green” tire.

This new premium All-Season tire has excellent wet grip, a smooth and quiet ride, long wearing tread life and great handling properties. In addition, the eNTYRE provides superior winter grip when compared to other premium All- Season tires, along with low rolling resistance for better gas mileage.

The eNTYRE features several Nokian tread design innovations including: Splash Stopper, Cooling Edge, 3D Sipes, and Polished Grooves.

The eNTYRE is made of environmentally friendly materials. Long a leader in “green” tires, Nokian in 2005 was the first tire manufacturer to completely eliminate high-aromatic, or HA, oils from its production processes. The company does not use any carcinogenic chemicals or chemicals classified as toxic (T) in its production processes. The Birch Leaf insignia on the sidewall of Nokian tires guarantees the complete absence of toxic chemicals.
