Nokian Hakka Truck 844 - Durability for demanding operations

Nokian Heavy Tyres is introducing the new 385/55R22.5 Nokian Hakka Truck 844 trailer tyre. The tyre has been designed to operate flawlessly even under demanding conditions. Due to its new structure, the Nokian Hakka Truck 844 offers excellent mileage and good wear resistance. The sturdy tyre is especially designed for use on trailers, but it also works well as a front tyre.

The Nokian Hakka Truck 844 is designed for all-season long and medium distance transport, and it also works well under winter conditions. It is the first trailer tyre in this size on the market with both the M+S marking and the snowflake symbol, signifying official winter tyre approval.

- The new belt structure gives the Nokian Hakka Truck 844 trailer tyre optimal surface pressure. This ensures even wear and excellent mileage. The tyre also has low rolling resistance, which reduces fuel costs and ensures silent running, says Teppo Siltanen, Product Manager for Truck Tyres at Nokian Heavy Tyres.

The Spiral Sipe System maintains the correct stiffness of the tread pattern even as the tyre wears down. This ensures that grip is maintained. The siping also reduces the tyre's rolling noise.

Stone ejectors in the main grooves reduce stone trapping. This reduces the penetration of sharp rocks into the tyre, thereby prolonging its operating life. Other road users will also be happy, as the number of rock projectiles is reduced.

A simple wear indicator provides safety and makes it easy to follow the wear of the tyre. The Driving Safety Indicator (DSI) developed and patented by Nokian Tyres indicates in numbers how many millimetres of tread there is left on the main grooves of the tyre.

The Nokian Hakka Truck 844 has excellent retreading capabilities, which increases the usability of the casing and reduces the overall costs. The Nokian Hakka Truck 844 tread pattern is also available in the durable Nokian Noktop 44 retreading material which is suited for demanding conditions.

The Nokian Hakka Truck 844 is especially designed for the Nordic countries, Russia, and Central Europe. The new product will be available in November 2014.
