           Safety from the expert on extreme conditions.
Nokian Tyres has over 70 years of experience in the manufacturing of tyres for extreme conditions. The ever-changing
driving conditions of the north have taught us that summer tyres must be safe to drive from the budding of spring to
the wet leaves of autumn, on dry and wet asphalt and uneven dirt roads alike. The extensive Nokian range offers you
the choice of reliable and durable tyres that will suit your car’s properties and your driving habits.
            On the terms of the environment.
Nokian Tyres is a bold forerunner in environmental friendliness as well. Nokian Tyres was the
world’s first tyre manufacturer to go over to using purified, low aromatic oils in its production.
Lower rolling resistance through the use of new tread compounds is the continuous focus of
development: the more easily a tyre rolls, the less fuel it consumes and the lower C02
emissions it generates.
              We test, so that you don’t have to.
The ABS, traction control and electronic stability control systems in modern cars are top class and bring a sense of safety to
driving. In extreme situations, in braking or in evasive manoeuvres under slippery conditions you want safety to be more
than just a feeling. A tyre tested in extreme conditions supplements the car’s safety systems and does what you expect.
You can stop and steer as if nothing had happened. Without raising your pulse and unnoticed by passengers.

Nokian Tyres’ proving grounds in Ivalo and Nokia are used to simulate extreme driving conditions around the year in all
possible conditions. As well as test equipment and measurement devices a major weighting in the results is placed on the
experience of our practised test drivers.


       The danger of aquaplaning lies in wait

In dry summer conditions the driver does not really need to think about the    Contact area    8 mm                      4 mm                    1,6 mm

tyres at all. When a thunderstorm takes you by surprise and suddenly fills
the ruts in the road with water then aquaplaning is an obvious problem.
The best way to avoid it is with new tyres where the tread geometry
pumps the water away from under the tyre. Once tyres have less than

                                           For over 70 years we have developed, tested and patented solutions that enhance safety in

                                           features intact under all conditions, even as it ages and wears.

Nokian Z G2. The cool performer.
Designed for fast driving, Nokian Z G2 clearly outperforms its competitors in demanding, difficult
conditions, even heavy fluctuations or rain. Letting you fully enjoy the performance of your car,
the tyre enhances driving stability, especially on corners, when changing lanes and dodging. The
Nokian Cool Zone Concept improves driving stability, handling, wet grip and durability and reduces
the tyre´s noise level, rolling resistance and heat generation.

•	 Stable, precise and quiet
•	 Retains its driving properties in extreme situations
•	 Excellent wet grip at all temperatures




Nokian V/H. For those who demand grip and durability.
The fluctuating summer weather places heavy demands on tyres. Nokian H and Nokian V
tyres, optimised for their own speed categories provide excellent aquaplaning properties.
The tread geometry’s narrow, oriented grooves and water guides remove water efficiently
from the contact surface. The noise cavities in the longitudinal grooves affect air flow
and reduce driving noise.

•	 Tailored for demanding conditions
•	 Stable driving behaviour even at high speeds
•	 Excellent aquaplaning properties




Nokian i3. Top quality handling.
Nokian i3 is designed especially for smaller cars and medium-sized family cars. Three longitudinal
main grooves prevent aquaplaning and make the tyre quiet and stable even at high speeds. The
inside-outside shoulder area design improves handling on wet and dry road surfaces. New silica
tread compound guarantees good wet grip . 

•	 Precise handling properties and very low noise level 
•	 Excellent aquaplaning properties
•	 Rolls easily and consumes little fuel




Nokian Z SUV. Easy rolling superiority.
Large and powerful urban SUVs demand a lot from tyres. In response to motorists’ wishes a tyre
was born which is exceptionally consistent to drive, rolls easily and is still extremely strong. The
SUV tyre, designed for high speed categories, is available up to 22 inches and, as well as a stylish
exterior, offers a host of innovations which improve driving stability in extreme conditions. The
tyre stays cool and responds to the driver’s wishes immediately on all road surfaces.

•	 Tailor-made durability for SUVs
•	 Excellent grip even in extreme conditions
•	 Efficient power
Nokian HT SUV. Durable SUV tyre for the rough road.
Your powerful SUV puts a lot of demands on tyres. Especially, if you take your car
occasionally out of the urban streets. Nokian HT SUV is exceptionally hard wearing and
strong but still reacts immediately and accurately to steering. Although the tyre is at
its best on asphalt, it also functions excellently off the main roads, covered in sand and
gravel. Following our principles of durable safety, the tyre properties are consistent
throughout its working life.

•	 Durable construction for a long lifetime
•	 Precise and sturdy road response
•	 Good grip on both wet and dry roads across at all temperatures




               Nokian Tyres’ SUV series features

•	Tyre carcass construction tailored for higher weight classes
•	Greater load-bearing capacity
•	Cut resistant sidewall compound
•	Special tread compound, which ensures good driving stability


With Nokian Tyres’ SUV series you can confidently enjoy the performance and driving properties of your car throughout
the summer.




Nokian Hakka C Cargo & Van.
Working on the road.
Tyres that are used every day have to provide unconditional reliabi-
lity throughout their life. Nokian Hakka C Cargo and Nokian Hakka C
Van are designed for heavy use right down to the smallest detail.
However, durability on its own is not enough, the tyre has to give
an accurate feel for the road in bad weather too.

The tread pattern and structure of the Nokian Hakka C Cargo for
heavy vehicles is similar to a lorry tyre and can take the heavy
wheel loadings of distribution and goods vehicles without any
trouble. The non-directional tread pattern enables you to mount
the tyre anywhere on the vehicle.

Nokian Hakka C Van designed for light loads and passenger
transport is extremely quiet and its asymmetric tread pattern
provides an extremely precise drive when used with minibuses.

Nokian Hakka C Cargo
•	 Sturdy construction
•	 Good wear resistance and long-lasting properties
•	 Precise driving response even with heavier loads



Nokian Hakka C Van
•	 Efficient aquaplaning prevention
•	 Good wear resistance and long-lasting properties
•	 Low tyre noise
