Find your tire


Getting timber out of the forest is a job for forwarders. To carry and load heavy timber safely and predictably, the forwarders benefit from stable, sturdy forestry tires. Nokian Tyres has been specializing in forestry tires for decades, creating some of the best suited tires for the job in the world. As a result of years’ worth of expertise, Nokian Tyres has created high-quality tires for forwarders and the special demands of the forest.  

High load-bearing capacity for forwarders

Forwarders carry amazing amounts of wood in demanding forest environments, where the ground can be extremely uneven and slippery. This is the home turf for Nokian Tyres: about a third of all the forest in the European Union grows in Scandinavia, where Nokian Tyres operates. Due to harsh conditions of the forest, tire quality is crucial for efficient and safe forestry work. Nokian Tyres has been developing new forestry tires for decades.

For 8-wheel forwarders, there are two product lines that sum up the decades of Scandinavian forest know-how. Nokian Tyres Forest King F2 is the ultimate log forwarder tire when it comes to performing with tracks. Another recommended forestry tire for forwarders is Nokian Tyres Forest King TRS 2. It is a premium performance traction pattern tire that works great with or without tracks. The Forest King TRS 2 fits well to versatile forestry work and various conditions. Both these premium tires are reliable solutions for forestry machines of all sizes.  

Forwarder tires optimized for tracks

In Nokian Tyres Forest King F2 the traction between the tire and track has been optimized to meet the demands of challenging forestry work. The good track support helps the tracks to stay on and prevents them from slipping. This is achieved with a special tread pattern together with the shape of the shoulders. This ensures excellent track grip for demanding forwarder use even when the ground is slippery.

Puncture-resistance with or without tracks

Nokian Tyres Forest King TRS 2 is a tire with excellent load bearing capacity. This is often referred to as load range or ply rating (PR). Forest King TRS 2 is a high-quallity traction tire that performs great without tracks. It can be used with tracks as well if the conditions get tough.

Puncture-resistance is one of the Forest King TRS 2 tire’s key qualities. In addition to withstanding punctures, the tire provides excellent lateral grip and traction. These tire features are essential when forwarders carry heavy loads on uneven and often slippery or muddy ground.  

Special tire for 6-wheel forwarders

Our most advanced tire for 6-wheel forwarders is Nokian Tyres Forest King TRS2+. This forestry tire has enhanced compatibility with tracks and its bias structure makes it extremely puncture-resistant and stable. This forwarder tire is available in 34” single axle sizes for 6-wheel forwarders.


Replacement tires for forwarder

Older forwarders may sometimes need a spare tire. This is when quality needs to meet cost-effectiveness. In case a replacement tire is needed, the Nokian Tyres Nordman Forest tire family is a trustworthy solution. The tires’ price and quality ratio is optimized without compromising reliability or functionality. The tires combine good puncture resistance and high load-bearing capacity.

Another highly recommended spare tire option for forwarders is Nokian Tyres TRS L-2. This tested and trusted classic tire for specialized forestry work comes with excellent lateral grip and high load-bearing capacity.
