Nokian tyres are multiple test winners, provide high safety and save fuel

Purchase the test winners of the summer tyre tests and prepare tyre change now

Nokian tyres often become test winners, they are very safe and save fuel. Test winners of the summer tyre tests are the right purchase. Tyre change should be prepared now. At the moment the prices are still low at tyre service and choice is big.

Test winner is Nokian with the judgement “very recommendable” in the summer tyre test 2011 of the renowned German car magazine „auto motor und sport“ and in the tyre test of the German car magazine „Auto“, too.

The Nokian tyres from Finland got the best judgement „good“ with German car association ADAC and consumer protection organisation „Stiftung Warentest“ and they were awarded „very recommendable“ in the German car magazines „Auto Zeitung“ and „sport auto“. The Nokian SUV tyre is also “very recommendable” in the off-road tyre test of „Auto Zeitung“.

„Very good driving behaviour and braking ability in the wet and in the dry, low noise, very low rolling resistance,“ „auto motor und sport“ describes as one of the benefits of environmentally friendly Nokian V. Low rolling resistance leads to low fuel consumption.

Its strengths according to ADAC: „+ very balanced tyre, + good in all safety relevant disciplines, + top mark in the wet“. Nokian has got the shortest braking distance in the wet of all tyres tested by ADAC, it is 22 metres shorter than the one of the poorest tyre.. The consumer protection magazine „test“ recommends Nokian V as “our advice”. “Very good properties in the wet and a low rolling resistance help the Finnish Nokian tyre to achieve the overall victory” is the headline in the tyre test of “auto motor und sport”.

For tyre change, Nokian tyres are obtainable on good terms at local tyre dealers, with rims, too.

Nokian Tyres – the world’s leading winter tyre expert

Being the world’s leading winter tyre expert, Nokian Tyres is the only tyre manufacturer in the world that focuses on products and services that facilitate safe transportation in Nordic conditions. The company's innovative passenger car, van and heavy-duty machinery tyres are mainly marketed in areas that have snow, forest and changing seasons that make driving conditions demanding. Nokian Tyres also offers tyres especially tailored for the milder Central European climate.
For over 75 years, the company has been developing, testing and patenting solutions that promote driving safety and is the inventor of the winter tyre. The world's first winter tyre was created to tackle the freezing temperatures and winds in 1934. Since then, top-range products refined with northern know-how have been introduced on a regular basis.
The world’s northernmost tyre manufacturer tests its products under demanding and extreme conditions at its own test facilities in Ivalo, 300 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle. At the beginning of the 1990s Nokian Tyres became the first company to develop unique slush planing tests for winter tyres. In 2002, Nokian Tyres introduced the Nokian WR, which was the first winter tyre designed for fast driving (M + S) in the world. This was followed in 2007 by the Nokian WR G2 that has been praised in test reports for its exemplary grip and special ability to prevent slush planing. Its success story is now continued with the new Nokian WR D3 and A3: Nokian WR is test winner in the winter tyre test 2011 of the German car magazine “sport auto” with the judgement “very recommendable”, in the TV show “auto mobil” of the German TV station “VOX” and with “Auto Plus”, the French version of “Auto Bild”.
Nokian summer tyres are multiple test winners, too, they provide high safety and save fuel. The Nokian is test winner with the judgement “very recommendable” in the summer tyre test 2011 of the renowned German car magazine „auto motor und sport“ and in the tyre test of the German car magazine „Auto“, too. The Nokian SUV tyre is also “very recommendable” in the off-road tyre test of „Auto Zeitung“.
Nokian winter and summer tyres are developed and tested in harsh road conditions in Finland and shall offer high quality and top-level safety. Respect for the environment is one of the fundamental values of Nokian Tyres. The company has systematically worked towards minimising environmental hazards. The Nokian brand stands for environmentally friendly premium tyres. Nokian Tyres was the first tyre manufacturer to switch over to using only purified, low-aromatic oils in its production. Raw material and material choices are aimed at avoiding unnecessary burdens on the environment. In Scandinavia and Russia the high-value brand has a high level of awareness and a good reputation.
Nokian Tyres’ net sales for 2010 totalled approximately EUR 1,058 million, and it had 3,500 employees. The company owns the Vianor tyre chain that comprises 900 stores in 23 countries. Nokian Tyres Plc's shares are quoted on the Helsinki Exchanges' NASDAQ OMX.
