NOKIAN TYRES TO INTRODUCE A NEW FRICTION TYRE
Nokian Tyres introduces a new studless winter tyre, Nokian Hakkapeliitta RSi for passenger cars. The novelty is a successor for the popular Nokian Hakkapeliitta Q friction tyre and it has been developed for the Nordic, Russian and North American markets. Consumer sales with the wide size range will start in the autumn of 2004.
Several technical innovations developed for the new R speed rated (170 km/h) friction tyre improve grip properties especially when braking and accelerating on snowy, slushy, icy and wet surfaces. The tyre has been manufactured without using harmful high aromatic oils.
