The TPMS low tyre pressure indicator is a yellow symbol that illumi…

DSI (Driving Safety Indicator) is a weardown indicator that indicates the remaining tread depth in millimeters. It helps you to know when you should change your tyre to a new one. It also helps with increasing the mileage of your tyres when you are able to even out the car specific differences in tr…

Proper storage can extend tyres’ life. They should be stored in a dry, dark, and cool space, with a temperature between 0°C and 15°C. Tyres should be protected from rain and moisture to ensure that water does not condense on the tyre's surface. Tyres must be protected from bright light, electric…

The incorrect tyre pressure may have serious consequences when driving, particularly if the pressure is too low. If the tyre pressure is too low, the car's driving characteristics will be weaker and maneuverability will suffer in situations such as aquaplaning. Low tyre pressure also increases t…

Nokian Tyres has tested the winter tyre pressures for most of the car models. The indication has been that the number should be 0,2 bar (20kpa) higher than the recommended summer tyre pressure. This is due to to different construction in a winter tyre and the effect of cold to the pressure. You can …

In the future, the rolling resistance will improve remarkably, due to material innovations. In addition modern technology will be attached to the tyre and the tyre shall be a more inseparable part of the suspension and the whole car.
