Nokian Tyres introduces to the market a new family of efficiency-improving Float King VF flotation tires, featuring four additional sizes

Nokian Tyres Flexforce® VF is a unique new tire technology that provides impressive grip and flotation in challenging soil conditions.  Utilizing the Nokian Tyres Flexforce® VF technology, Nokian Tyres Float King VF tire is now made available in four common sizes for high-capacity slurry tankers.

At Agritechnica 2023, Nokian Tyres presented two VF tire models utilizing the new Nokian Tyres Flexforce® VF tire technology for modern farming: the DLG test-winning Soil King VF tractor tire and Float King VF flotation and tanker tire. With the four new sizes for the latter, a wider range of heavy tankers and agricultural applications can benefit from the Float King VF features.

The Flexforce VF technology gives the farmers features they have been asking for. It enables more efficient agricultural work by creating an XXL-sized ground contact, reducing power loss, and providing load-bearing capacity with lower tire pressure, thus minimizing soil compaction.


Field-tested and user-approved

The VF tire has been subjected to extensive field testing by the agricultural contractors from all over the world. They have been impressed with the soil-friendliness, grip, stability and good self-cleaning properties of the tire.


Sizes and availability

The current size range of the Float King VF includes four common high-capacity slurry tanker sizes and it will expand in the future.  

Float King VF product family currently includes: VF750/60R30.5, VF850/50R30.5, VF710/55R34 and VF800/50R34.
