NOKIAN TYRES TO INTRODUCE A NEW TOP SPEED SUMMER TYRE


Nokian Tyres is the first tyre manufacturer in the world to introduce an entirely clean W-speed rated (270 km/h) car summer tyre. The novelty, Nokian Z, is an Ultra High Performance tyre, the demand for which is growing heavily in tyre markets. The consumer sales of Nokian Z will start in the Nordic countries, Central Europe and Russia in the spring 2005.

Nokian Z summer tyre combines good wet grip, precise controllability and clean rubber compounds. The tyre is entirely manufactured without harmful high-aromatic oils.

- The design of Nokian Z focused on two core points: safety under extreme conditions and environmental friendliness. Achieving both in a top-speed tyre calls for special technical skills and solid experience, says Mr. Teppo Huovila, Product Development Manager, Nokian Tyres.
