New summer tyre for small and medium-sized cars
The new Nokian iLine for small and medium-sized cars rolls pleasantly and safely in any summer weather. This summer tyre from Nokian Tyres offers first-class fuel efficiency, which amounts to greener driving. The top-notch driving feel remains stable and reliable even under extreme conditions. The unique Venturi Grooves effectively prevent aquaplaning and the pine oil added to the rubber compound maximises tyre durability.
The new summer tyre from the world’s northernmost tyre manufacturer supplements the selection of Nokian Tyres premium summer tyres for the increasingly varied Central European summer weather. The wide size selection (13–16 inches) is excellently suited for drivers who want to stay safe on rain-soaked asphalt and sun-scorched gravel roads alike. The most common speed ratings are T (190 km/h) and H (210 km/h). The entire size selection will be made available to drivers during the spring of 2016.
Central Europe is the most important market for the new tyres of the Nokian Line summer tyre family that took first places in comparison tests by ADAC and Auto Bild, for example. As multiple test winner, the inventor of the winter tyre, world record holder and innovation leader Nokian Tyres from Finland offers the safest tyres.
The Nokian iLine has a stable driving feel, and it is not afraid of rainfall from the summer’s sudden thunderstorms or the ever-treacherous aquaplaning. The Venturi Grooves on the inner and outer shoulder further improve aquaplaning prevention. The contoured grooves located between the tread blocks on the shoulder area accelerate the flow of discharged water.
The carefully designed asymmetrical inside-outside tread pattern also improves the aquaplaning properties of the Nokian iLine. The polished main grooves facilitate the removal of water. The optimised, open design at the mouth of the main grooves increases groove volume, thereby preventing further aquaplaning.
The new Nokian iLine has low rolling resistance and good wear resistance thanks to several technological innovations. The hemispherical, golf ball-like indentations on the walls of the longitudinal ribs cool the tyre down. This new Silent Groove Design reduces air resistance and increases the range of the vehicle through lower fuel consumption.
The design of the sides of the longitudinal ribs also controls the interior and exterior rolling noise of the vehicle. The indentations guide the airflow, removing the noise waves caused by the edges of the transversal grooves and thereby preventing that unpleasant, howling sound.
The new Nokian iLine Silica tread compound is a skilful combination of safety and eco-friendliness. Pine oil has been added to the full silica compound that guarantees commendable wet grip under all conditions. Pine oil effectively reduces the temperature of the rubber compound by reducing the friction caused by inter-molecular movement. The Nokian iLine lasts longer and rolls lightly, consumes less fuel and minimises harmful emissions.
Tyres that are in good condition will increase your safety by substantially reducing the possibility of aquaplaning. In addition to the Driving Safety Indicator (DSI) patented by Nokian Tyres, the tyres also have an aquaplaning indicator. Its water drop symbol disappears at the point where less than four millimetres of tread are remaining, indicating an increased risk for aquaplaning.
Venturi Grooves. Effective aquaplaning prevention. The shaped grooves located between the shoulder blocks speed up the outflow of water. The speed of water flow increases at the point of constriction, effectively removing water between the tyre and driving surface.
Nokian iLine Silica rubber compound. Excellent wet grip and fuel efficiency. The new environmentally friendly full-silica compound ensures excellent wet grip and a low rolling resistance at all temperatures. The pine oil added to the rubber compound improves wear resistance.
Silent Groove Design. More driving comfort. The hemispherical indentations, reminiscent of a golf ball pattern, on the walls of the longitudinal ribs provide additional driving comfort. The innovation reduces the interior noise and external rolling noise of the vehicle. The design also reduces air resistance and cools the surface of the tyre, in turn improving wear resistance.
