Durability is one of the most important properties of delivery van tyres. The useful life of the new C tyres has been extended through the use of a more durable steel belt structure that also enhances the retreading properties of the tyre. The new radial structure is approximately 40% stronger than the structure of its predecessor.

The three new delivery van C tyres are tailor-made to meet the special needs of the different market areas.

The Nokian Hakkapeliitta C2 is a new studded delivery tyre for Nordic markets. Its grip properties have been enhanced by the new stud hole design and have an improved stud pattern.

The Nokian Hakkapeliitta CQ is a Nordic friction tyre where the focus of design has been on grip in ice and snow. The Nokian Hakkapeliitta CQ applies the dense siping and friction rubber compound like the Nokian Hakkapeliitta Q passenger car tyre.

The Nokian Hakkapeliitta CS is a winter tyre designed for the Western European market that emphasises wet grip and driving properties at high speeds.

All the tyres include the DSI wear indicator developed by Nokian Tyres and sidewall abrasion protection that reduces the risk of puncture, which is particularly important with delivery vans. The tyres come in 8 different sizes.
