COLCHESTER, Vt.—Nokian is adapting its aramid sidewall technology, using aramid fiber, to its lines of van and cargo tires, which typically are used on heavier vehicles navigating poor roads, gravel and over curbs.
Nokian Tyres’ Aramid Sidewall technology is now available in tires for cargo and commercial van drivers.
“We want to offer cargo and commercial van drivers the same durability that users of our SUV and LT tires are already receiving,” said Petri Neime, head of product and pricing management for Nokian. “In addition to protecting against unplanned additional costs caused by tire damage, Aramid fiber also ensures reliability in unpredictable situations.”
Nokian Tires introduces its new non-studded Nokian Hakkapeliitta R3 and Hakkapeliitta R3 SUV winter tire. It is part of the company’s offering to provide much-needed peace of mind in case of a sudden snowstorm or rapidly freezing road surfaces.

Four entirely new Nokian winter tyre ranges are to be introduced in time for the colder months in 2018/19. These lines will start shipping to retailers in spring, with a large size portfolio available to consumers this coming autumn.
