Nokian Z SUV tyre is the winner of the 2012 SUV tyre test of German car magazine, "Auto Zeitung"
"Very good on wet surfaces, safe handling characteristics, low rolling resistance"
The Nokian Z SUV tyre is the winner in the 2012 SUV tyre test of German car magazine "Auto Zeitung" (12/2012). Its "first place overall" is an outstanding result: "Very good on wet surfaces, safe handling characteristics, low rolling resistance. And the Nokian is good value".
The winner's vital "wet-test results" demonstrate its excellent performance: "It could hardly be better. The Nokian is a wet-weather specialist. Top for brakes and steering. Very fast, very safe". The "off-road test results": "Good-natured handling characteristics and optimum traction in the mud." Regarding the Nokian Z SUV's convincing win, the "Auto Zeitung" SUV tyre test report says, "The tread pattern from Finland owes its clear lead in the overall standings to its very low rolling resistance, acceptable off-road characteristics and excellent driving safety in all handling disciplines. However, the Nokian's developmental edge is primarily noticeable on the wet handling track. With a very high level of grip and completely safe handling characteristics, it leaves everything else standing." Six premium 235/65 R 17 V tyres for SUVs and off-road vehicles were put to the test.
