The new Nokian NTR 74S – Durable reliability for professional use

The reliable new Nokian NTR 74S from Nokian Heavy Tyres ensures safe travel under all weather conditions, all year round. The tyre is optimised for use on main roads and it is primarily intended for trailers, but it is also suitable for use as a steer axle tyre. The Nokian NTR 74S is 3PMSF approved and it offers durability and economical driving for the varying conditions of the Nordic countries, Central Europe and Russia.

The durable Nokian NTR 74S has a sturdy, four-grooved tread with zigzag shaped grooves. The new type of tread pattern guarantees a good wear shape for the tyre, which allows the tyre to operate reliably also when worn. The tyre’s sturdy shoulders improve its durability under the demanding and abrasive operating conditions. The zigzag shaped grooves also effectively remove stones, which in turn reduces the risk of puncture.

The centre siping of the new tyre follows the same pattern as the zigzag shaped grooves. Siping enables good longitudinal and lateral grip, which improves the reliability of the tyre under all weather conditions. The Driving Safety Indicator (DSI), developed and patented by Nokian Tyres, makes it easier to monitor the safety and wear of the tyre. It displays the remaining tread depth on the tyre's main grooves in numbers.

The Nokian NTR 74S offers reliability all year long. As a sign of good grip on winter roads, the tyre bears the 3PMSF label (snowflake symbol) in addition to the M+S label. Tyres that bear the snowflake symbol have been proved to work under demanding snow conditions, which means that the Nokian NTR 74S will not compromise on grip even in deep snow.

The Nokian NTR 74S is also an economical choice. The tyre has low rolling resistance, which in turn reduces fuel consumption. Due to the high-quality rubber compound, the tyre offers excellent mileage even under the most demanding driving conditions. The tyre also has good retreading capabilities, which increases the usability of the casing and lowers the overall costs. Several high-quality Nokian Noktop tread patterns are available for retreading.

- The Nokian NTR 74S offers reliable driving for professionals in the transport industry. The zigzag shaped grooves, unique centre siping and tread compound ensure that the tyre is stable, durable and economical. The versatile Nokian NTR 74S is suitable for any conditions, from the Nordic winter to the Central European summer, says Teppo Siltanen, Product Manager for Truck Tyres at Nokian Heavy Tyres.

The Nokian NTR 74S complements the Nokian NTR product family of truck and bus tyres that are developed to work safely and predictably regardless of conditions. The first sizes of the tyre will become available towards the end of the summer of 2015 in the Nordic countries and Europe.
