Nokian Tyres high-tech offers true benefit for drivers

Already test winners, the new Nokian Tyres SUV summer tyres provide maximum durability and performance thanks to high-tech aramid sidewalls. Nokian aramid sidewall technology protects against wear, damage and cuts.

Aramid reinforces tyres and saves lives. These high-strength fibres also prove highly effective in the aviation and military industry. According to research, SUV tyres are most often damaged by impacts to the tyre sidewall. Typical scenarios include driving into potholes with low inflation pressure and parking too carelessly. Nokian Tyres is the first tyre manufacturer to use aramid in the sidewall. The new Nokian SUV summer tyres Nokian Line SUV and Nokian zLine SUV already incorporate the high-tech aramid for maximum safety.
