For SUVs- and off-road vehicles. Excelent handling in the road and light off-road use. Engineered in Germany, Continental offers premium tyres with optimum braking performance and safety. Excellent dry and wet braking performance and very good handling properties. Fits perfectly for example to Toyota Land Cruiser, Jeep Cherokee and VW Amarok.
Excellent dry and wet braking performance and very good handling properties.
The tyre’s high pattern stiffness is highly impressive. This is ensured by the solid central pattern area, the closed shoulder pattern and additional raised areas within the tread pattern blocks. The tyre therefore offers excellent handling and very good braking properties on dry road surfaces. Short braking distances on wet road surfaces are ensured by the highly siped pattern, which increases grip by means of improved water displacement between the blocks and the road surface.
High mileage and high level of driving comfort.
The continuously closed shoulder pattern creates a barrier against the tyre noise produced in the centre of the tread pattern. A high level of driving comfort is therefore guaranteed thanks to reduced noise emissions. The flat tyre contour facilitates an even distribution of pressure between the tyre and road surface. This leads to high mileage.
Outstanding traction in light off-road use.
The highly siped pattern creates numerous grip angles. These guarantee outstanding traction in light off-road use.

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.

'Superior on-and-off-road capabilities and rugged all-terrain performance.'
The Nokian HT SUV is at its best on asphalt, but it also functions excellently off the main roads: with an SUV you can slip away from the smooth main road onto the twisty small roads, tracks that are covered in sand and gravel and difficult to drive on.
The structure of the Nokian HT SUV is designed for versatile SUV driving. The steel belt is covered with a jointless nylon belt which improves the road response of the tyre. The reinforced edge areas of the belt and the single wire bead ensure it can cope with hard use. The asymmetrical tread gives the tyre precise and safe control on dry roads and in wet conditions. The stone removers in the main grooves of the tread prevent small stones becoming embedded in the grooves and tread pattern. The self cleaning tread minimises the amount of jagged stones that get stuck in the tyre. For driving on sandy roads and other soft surfaces, there are off-road claws moulded into the shoulder area, bevels and straight cornered protectors. The off-road claws grip the surface of the road which makes traction and braking more efficient.
Nokian Cool Silica – tread compound guarantees grip in all conditions
The new silica tread compound, Nokian Cool Silica, has been designed for particularly demanding and changeable conditions where large fluctuations in temperature are typical. The tyre has excellent grip on both wet and dry roads. Wear resistance is top quality. Following our principles of durable safety, the tyre properties are consistent throughout its working life. The new Double Mud Stopper contact area construction increases the operational life of the tyre and rims The mud stopper prevents dirt, mud and small stones getting caught between the tyre and the rim. The wide range of sizes available for the T and H speed categories of Nokian’s newest member of the summer product family, the Nokian HT SUV tyre, covers all of the most popular SUVs sold in Europe.

Ice performance in the Winter WildernessGet the water out, and get a grip on ice.
The Geolandar I/T-S G073, made with triple water-absorbent rubber, instantly absorbs water from icy surfaces.
'Micro Hydraplaning' on Icy Roads
The layer of water above the ice is the biggest contributor to loss of traction in winter conditions. This layer of water causes 'micro hydraplaning' on icy surfaces. A traditional rubber rides on the layer of water because the thickness of the layer of water in the -6°C to 0°C zone becomes more than 10um and undulation of the tyre surface is about 4-7um.
Removing the Water with powerful 'absorbent rubber'
YOKOHAMA's original compound technology incorporates water-absorbing compounds, putting the tyre in contact with the actual ice.
