Driving comfort, durability, and versatile performance for small and medium-sized SUVs. Nokian Line SUV summer tyre for varied SUV use offers pleasant comfort, high performance and firm wet grip. It is the correct choice for drivers who value safe driving but also who want to enjoy the power of their SUVs on rough roads and in urban traffic alike. The durability of tyre is improved by Nokian Aramid Sidewall technology. The sidewall compound includes extremely durable aramid staple fibre which stiffens and reinforces the sidewall allowing it to better withstand surprising impacts and cuts. Nokian Line SUV tyre has also excellent wet grip and aquaplaning prevention properties.
Effective aquaplaning prevention: The shoulder areas have trumpet grooves, bullet-type indentations that have been optimised for flow; they store water from between the tyre and the road, accelerating its flow from the main grooves towards the transverse grooves and maximising grip.
Durability and protection for surprising situations: The aramid fibre stiffens and strengthens the sidewall rubber to withstand external impacts and pressing against the wheel flange.
Better handling stability, safety for wet roads: The outermost longitudinal ribs in the centre area are dominated by the deep diagonal grooves that open at one end and stabilise handling.
The GEOLANDAR SUV is marketed for vehicles designed for on-road driving, including urban crossover vehicles and medium- and small-size SUVs, which are increasingly popular around the world. In its development, employing for the first time in SUV tyres the BluEarth concept of “being human and socially friendly combined with improvements to environmental performance,” YOKOHAMA adopted the latest compounding and design technology used in its fuel-efficient BluEarth tyres for passenger cars. Thanks to these technologies, comfort, safety and lower fuel consumption are enhanced while the utility performance of SUV tyres on various road surfaces is fully maintained. YOKOHAMA’s BluEarth concept mark appears on the sidewall of each tyre.
Vredestein’s Ultra High Performance winter tyre, the Wintrac xtreme S, was developed to stand up to the extreme weather conditions in the coldest season of the year. Maximum safety on snow and ice are as important as grip and steering precision for the Wintrac xtreme S, especially on the cold snow-free surfaces on which people drive the majority of the time.
Thanks to its Internal Sipe Locking Technology (ISLT), the Wintrac xtreme S takes the characteristics of a top-class winter tyre to a whole new level. The technology minimises deformation of the sipes in the tread, resulting in excellent course stability, greater steering precision and an enhanced sense of safety at higher speeds. There are many sizes available with the Y speed index and - combined with the great looks that come from a Giugiaro-designed tyre - this makes the Wintrac xtreme S suitable for the highest performance and most exclusive cars.
